Fisherman’s Friends Sails Straight to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart

Fisherman’s Friends reels in the Number 1 spot on the Official Film Chart, knocking Captain Marvel to second place in what was an extremely close race.

The biographical comedy-drama based around the story of the major label-signed, sea shanty-singing group comes in at the top of the chart. The official soundtrack for the film spent three weeks in the Official Singles Chart Top 40 upon the film’s release in March, becoming the band’s third Top 40 collection.

The second brand new entry this week, on digital downloads only, is Alita: Battle Angel (3); starring Rosa Salazar & Christoph Waltz. Based on a 1990’s manga, it follows a revived, amnesiac cyborg as she sets out on a quest to find out who she was in her past life.

Previous Number 1 Fighting With My Family drops two to Number 4, while Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hangs on at Number 5. How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World falls two to Number 6.

Thanks to the on-going success of Toy Story 4 in cinemas, the original Toy Story claims a fourth consecutive week in the top tier at 7; Bohemian Rhapsody climbs two to 8; Ant-Man And The Wasp flies 16 to Number 9, and finally, Toy Story 3 drops to Number 10.

This week’s Official Film Chart online show features a clip of Tim Burton’s Dumbo remake, available to Download & Keep from July 22.

The Official Film Chart is unveiled each Wednesday and is the subject of a Top 10 Official Film Chart online show, published on OfficialCharts.com and available for media syndication.

The chart – the result of a partnership between the Official Charts Company, the British Association for Screen Entertainment and incorporating data from retailer members of the Entertainment Retailers Association – is published on OfficialCharts.com every Wednesday at noon and counts movie downloads from services including Amazon, iTunes, Sky Store, Virgin Media Store, Rakuten TV, Talk Talk TV, as well as 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD disc sales from all high street and online retailers
