Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo hovers in the Number 1 spot for a second consecutive week, more than doubling the sales of its closest competitor.
Keeping Captain Marvel (2) and Shazam! (3) at bay, the re-make of the Disney classic sees Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito reunite with Tim Burton; the trio last worked together on Batman Returns in 1992.
Hellboy (2019) is the week’s highest new entry based on just two days’ worth of digital downloads alone. A reboot of Mike Mignola’s graphic novel, this action-fantasy sees anti-hero Hellboy caught between the supernatural and human worlds and forced to battle an ancient sorceress hell-bent on revenge. The film stars Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the eponymous character.

Aquaman treads water at Number 7; Mary Poppins Returns drops two places to Number 8; Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse falls one to 9. Finally, A Star Is Born returns to the Top 10 at Number 10.
