Not every film has the luck to enter at the Number 1 spot. In its third week on the chart, Downton Abbey: A New Era climbs to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart.
Following its release on DVD and Blu-ray, the sequel to 2019’s Downton Abbey: The Movie – which also reached Number 1 back in February 2020 – has outsold the rest of the Top 10 combined with a very impressive first-week tally on disc. At Number 6 this week is a boxset of Downton Abbey: The Movie and Downton Abbey: A New Era.
As a result last week’s chart-topper, videogame adaptation Sonic the Hedgehog 2, drops to Number 3 as Wizarding World sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore holds on tight at Number 2.
The Batman climbs one to Number 4, while Sing 2 jumps seven to return to the Top 5 at Number 5 and The Lost City also moves up to Number 7.
Classic action movie Top Gun is once again back in the countdown at Number 8 after flying seven places; with the release this week of Top Gun: Maverick on digital downloads, will the 1986 original climb even higher next week?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness falls three (9), and finally Grease slips six places on last week (10).
