He is vengeance and The Batman makes its debut at Number 1 on the UK’s Official Film Chart.
Starring Robert Pattinson as the eponymous superhero alongside Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, the gritty take on DC’s caped crusader fights off last week’s record-breaking Number 1, earning its place based on digital downloads only. Will The Batman still be at number one when the Blu-ray, 4K and DVD release happens later this month?
This means that Top Gun, despite a similarly strong performance across both disc and digital this week, is pushed down to Number 2 following the release of the highly-anticipated sequel Top Gun: Maverick in cinemas.
Meanwhile, Sing 2 holds at 3, while Tom Holland’s action-adventure Uncharted falls to Number 4, closely followed by another one of Holland’s chart-topping films, Spider-Man: No Way Home at 5.
Disney’s Encanto climbs three to 6, The Matrix Resurrections finishes at 7, and Dune lands at Number 8. Jackass Forever rebounds back into the Top 10, rising six places to Number 9.
Finally, 1998 crime-drama Wild Things – starring Kevin Bacon, Neve Campbell and Matt Dillon – enters the chart for the first time at Number 10 following its re-release on 4K UHD, including a limited edition steelbook edition.
Now, as well as OfficialCharts.com, the Official Film Chart can also be found on FindAnyFilm.com – the ultimate site for Film and TV fans to discover all the legal ways to buy the entertainment they want on disc and digital formats.
