Cinefiles are going ‘hoping crazy’ as Peter Rabbit 2 hops straight to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart, while the loveable rabbit occupies a further two places in this week’s Top 20.
The animated adventure comedy film – featuring the voice of James Corden as the title character – claims the top spot based on digital sales only, ahead of its release on DVD and Blu-ray on 2nd August. Meanwhile, a boxset of Peter Rabbit 1 & 2 enters at Number 2, while the first 2018 film appears as a standalone release at Number 17.
A 4k Blu-ray re-release of Quentin Tarantino-written True Romance sends the 1993 US romantic crime into the chart at Number 4, and last week’s Number 1 Mortal Kombat (2021) drops to Number 5. Elsewhere, Godzilla Vs Kong (6), The Croods (7), Zack Snyder’s Justice League (8), Promising Young Woman (9) and Tom & Jerry: The Move (10) all hold firm inside the Top 10.
Further down, sci-fi film War Of The Worlds 2021 makes its debut at Number 15, and comedy horror Werewolves Within – a film adaptation of the popular video game – is new at Number 19.
