It seems Robert Downey Jr has been ‘talking’ more than just the animals, as his film Dolittle returns to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart. He may not be Rex Harrison, but sales do the talking not always the critics.
It was a close battle with the latest big screen adaptation of the much-loved literary classic, Emma.The two films finish the week only 193 sales apart as they knock last week’s Number 1, Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn to Number 3.
Dolittle debuted at Number 1 in June when it was toppled by Sonic the Hedgehog – it returns to its place atop the chart this week despite a valiant effort from Emma., which flies 26 places up the chart to Number 2 following its release on disc, its first time inside the Top 10.
Emma stars Anya Taylor-Joy as the eponymous character in this 2020 adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved comedy of manners. Well-meaning Emma Woodhouse adventures through romantic missteps as she meddles in her friends’ love lives, potentially jeopardising her own chances at romance.
Dark Waters is this week’s highest new entry at Number 4 on digital downloads only. Starring Mark Ruffalo, Dark Waters details the real-life case against the chemical manufacturing corporation DuPont after they contaminated a town with unregulated chemicals.
Previous chart topper 1917 drops to Number 5, and Sonic the Hedgehog is down one place to Number 6.
Leigh Whannel‘s thriller ain’t all that ‘invisible’ as The Invisible Man shoots up 11 places to Number 7, marking its Top 10 debut. When protagonist Cecelia Cass (Elisabeth Moss) learns her abusive ex took his own life, she suspects the death was a hoax – but how can she prove she’s being targeted by somebody no-one can see?
We don’t know what level Jumanji: The Next Level is on but it’s showing it still has plenty of levels to discover as it climbs two to Number 8. Onward drops two to Number 9 and Frozen 2 returns to the countdown, up five places to Number 10.
