Apollo 11 lands highest new entry in UK Film Chart
James R | On 14, Nov 2019
Apollo 11 comes in to land as the highest new entry on this week’s Official Film Chart, the only weekly chart to take into account digital as well as physical sales.
Toy Story 4, though, refuses to be ejected from the top spot. Number 1 for a fourth week and the UK’s best-selling DVD over the past seven days, Disney Pixar’s animated sequel is just ahead of Danny Boyle’s rom com Yesterday – a film that reimagines a world without The Beatles. It hits the right note, scooping the biggest Blu-ray of the week at Number 2.
Spider-Man: Far From Home, the week’s most downloaded movie, slips down one position to Number 3, while Aladdin (4) and Taron Egerton’s former chart topper, Rocketman (5), scale up one slot apiece.
Men in Black: International slips three places to 6 while The Secret Life Of Pets 2 (7) stays put this week. The end also isn’t in sight yet for the Avengers, as Endgame fights its way back into the Top 10, up three places to 8.
The star of the week, however, I’d space documentary Apollo 11, which zooms in as this week’s highest new entry at Number 9. The movie, featuring never-before-seen large-format film footage of one of mankind’s greatest accomplishments, takes a look at the 1969 mission to land on the moon, led by commander Neil Armstrong and pilots Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.
Finally, French action thriller Anna starring model Sasha Luss as the eponymous assassin alongside Luke Evans, Cillian Murphy, Helen Mirren, makes its debut appearance in the Top 10, rising 13 places to steal the 10th spot.
