“Hello All!” Barbie makes a sparkling return to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart following its release on disc.
The Greta Gerwig-directed, record-breaking blockbuster saw its release on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD last week, and as a result, leapfrogs from Number 3 back up to Number 1. With 51% of its sales this week made up of physical copies, the film still has a strong showing on digital downloads, too.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 is pushed down to Number 2, but it is the most downloaded film of the week. Could that change with 6th November DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD release? Meg 2: The Trench also falls one place to Number 3.
Our highest new entry of the week speeds straight in at Number 4; Gran Turismo, starring David Harbour, Orlando Bloom and Archie Madekwe, makes its debut on digital downloads only. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse rebounds back into the Top 10 this week, soaring 12 places to Number 5 and finishing just ahead of fellow former chart-topper Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny at Number 6.
A boxset of the original four Hellraiser movies, Hellraiser: Quartet of Torment, debuts in the Top 10 (7) following its special limited edition 4K release just in time for Halloween. Rounding out the Top 10 is the terrifying horror Talk To Me, which sees a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand – but soon things go too far when they accidentally open the door to the spirit world.
Outside the Top 10, several spookier entries land inside the Top 20. Genre-defining classic The Exorcist returns at Number 11, while Tim Burton’s charming stop-motion musical The Corpse Bride lifts two to Number 13, a new peak. The Pope’s Exorcist (15) rises three, Beetlejuice (17) teleports up eight places, and The Nun II tumbles eight but retains a place in the Top 20 (18). Finally, the 2023 horror Cobweb is a new entry at Number 20. An eight-year-old boy investigates mysterious knocking sounds coming from inside the walls of his house, unveiling a terrifying secret his parents insist was all in his imagination.
