Will Ferrell is Elf

Will Ferrell Hugs Christmas With Elf At Official Film Chart No.1!

Elf holds strong at the top of the Official Film Chart to become the UK’s Christmas Number 1 film 2022.

You better watch out, better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why, Santa Clause is coming to town! In four days time the big man will be with us soon, this week’s chart reflects the festive season

Now marking its fifth total week at Number 1, and second for the 2022 season, Elf has kept off the record-breaking Top Gun: Maverick,  no longer the ‘Top Gun’ which holds at Number 2

The Grinch rises one place to Number 3, while The Polar Express jumps four to enter the Top 5 and return to its previous peak of Number 4.

Ticket To Paradise, starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts, enters the Top 10 for the first time (5) climbing 8 places. The pair star in this rom-com as a divorced couple who put aside their differences to travel to Bali to stop their daughter repeating their ‘mistakes’ by marrying young.

Biopic Elvis rebounds one place (6) while Jurassic World: Dominion drops one (7), both landing just ahead of DC favourite The Batman (8) and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (9). Rounding off the Top 10 is Downton Abbey: A New Era which stumbles five places (10).
