Incredibles 2 stays top of the Official Film Chart as Mission: Impossible - Fallout is week’s highest new entry
28 November 2018
Incredibles 2 enjoys a second week at Number 1 on the Official Film Chart. The animated superhero movie faced tough competition from Mission: Impossible – Fallout which takes the highest new entry honours, through downloads only, at 3 (available on disc from 3rd December). Starring Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson and Henry Cavill, the latest instalment in the enduring action series sees the IMF team race against time after a mission goes drastically wrong. Rising a couple of places, sandwiched between the two action films, is the year’s biggest seller to date, The Greatest Showman at 2.
The Dwayne Johnson fronted action-thriller Skyscraper performs an epic leap up five places to 4 this week thanks to the first week of physical disc sales. Closing out the Top 5 is former Number 1 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which slides two places to 5.
There’s a second new entry at 6 in the form of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation which enters the Top 10 on downloads alone (available on disc from 3rd December). Last week’s highest new entry, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, falls to 7, whilst Christmas classic The Grinch (2000) slips to 8. Returning to the chart at 9 following its release on disc, is animated crime caper Sherlock Gnomes and rounding off the top 10 is Newt Scamander’s first outing, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them at 10.
The Official Film Chart is unveiled each Wednesday and is the subject of a Top 10 Official Film Chart online show, published on OfficialCharts.com and available for media syndication. The show counts down the top 10 biggest selling movies on disc and download of the week and also includes bonus “coming soon” content for film lovers.
This week’s Official Film Chart online show features a teaser of prehistoric shark thrill ride The Meg. Starring Jason Statham, the film is available to download from 3rd December and on disc from 10th December.
