The Greatest Showman enjoys a fresh surge of popularity in the UK, as it swoops back to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart – for the first time in over two years.
Once again the chart proves older films still deliver the magic over newer releases!

Meanwhile ‘Your Saviour’ arrive at Number 2 is this week’s highest new entry Saint Maud. This unnerving Horror stars Morfydd Clark as the eponymous nurse Maud, who makes it her purpose to save her terminally ill patient’s soul from eternal damnation. Flying back up the chart and landing at Number 3 is 1997 sci-fi classic The Fifth Element, whilst Godzilla: King of the Monsters (4) continues to enjoy a stint in the Top 5 ahead of the release of Godzilla vs. Kong next month.
Further down, Black Panther zooms 24 places this week to Number 6 following the release of a new 4K SteelBook edition of the film. It lands just ahead of last week’s Number 1, Bill & Ted Face The Music at 7. Finally, Trolls World Tour rebounds into the Top 10 at Number 10, its highest chart placing since early December.
