Something ‘explodes’ on the chart as Oppenheimer makes one of the biggest debuts of the year on the UK’s Official Film Chart.

First off all, a big apologies for no chart last week, as you’ll know, I was on holiday. Normal service now returns!

Flying straight in at Number 1, the Christopher Nolan-directed blockbuster saw 113,800 sales in its first week across both disc and digital downloads. It’s one of the biggest opening weeks of the year, following Avatar: The Way of Water (175k opening week sales) and John Wick: Chapter 4 (126k).

Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy as theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer – the “father of the atom bomb” – in this biographical thriller documenting his life and career, including his direction of the Manhattan Project during World War II. The film, boosted thanks to the Barbenheimer phenomenon this summer (when cinemagoers would see Barbie and Oppenheimer on the same day), became the UK’s second highest-grossing film theatrically of 2023.

Meanwhile, The Creator finishes at Number 2 following its own chart-topping debut last week, landing just ahead of our second brand new entry at Number 3, Trolls Band Together.

The animated musical adventure follow-up to Trolls World Tour – which broke records as the first film to spend six consecutive weeks at Number 1 in the UK back in 2020 – manages an impressive Top 3 debut on digital downloads only.

Former chart-toppers Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 (4) and Barbie (5) both drop one place, while terrifying sequel The Nun II returns to the chart following its release on disc (6).

Rounding out this week’s Top 10 is Violent Night, jumping ten places. The comedy-thriller starring David Harbour as Santa Claus previously peaked at Number 9 – will it reach new heights this festive season?
