Frozen 2 has a mammoth first week on the Official Film Chart – landing the second-highest opening week of digital download sales ever.
With a whopping 218,700 digital downloads, Frozen 2 is bested in first-week sales only by Avengers: Endgame, which claimed 335,400 in August 2019. Avengers: Infinity War comes in at Number 3 with 214,300 in its first chart week.
As we revisit Elsa, Anna, and Olaf, the gang sets off on a dangerous but remarkable journey to discover why Elsa was born with magical powers and save her kingdom. Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and Josh Gad reprise their respective roles in the sequel. Going with the title of their infamous song from the first film, Disney will be hoping they won’t ‘let it go’ for a long time!
Meanwhile, Le Mans ‘66 hangs on at Number 2 as Last Christmas hops five places to Number 3 following its release on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD; last week’s Number 1 Midway drops to Number 5.
A second new entry enters the chart at Number 6, Knives Out; Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is brought in to investigate the death of renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). Can Blanc uncover the truth behind the death of the celebrated writer?
Terminator: Dark Fate drops to Number 7, Joker’s down to 8, and Maleficent slips to Number 9. Finally, the live-action remake of The Lion King holds on at Number 10.
