The 2019 live-action retelling of Disney’s Aladdin flies to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart following its release across disc. Zooming past the quarter-million sales mark in just its second week, the much-loved story knocks Keanu Reeves’ John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum to Number 3.
The Secret Life Of Pets 2 starring Kevin Hart & Harrison Ford is this week’s highest new entry at Number 2 on digital downloads only. Continuing the story some time after events of the last movie, Max the dog faces brand new challenges after his owner gets married and has a child.
