Captain Marvel flies in at Number 1 on the UK Film Chart
Staff Reporter | On 11, Jul 2019Reading time: 1 mins
Captain Marvel is the biggest film of the week in the UK as it flies into the Official Film Chart top spot on digital downloads alone.
Brie Larson’s portrayal of the strongest Avenger proved a big box office hit and now leads its closest competition by nearly 3:1 in its first week of release on digital.
As a result, Fighting With My Family loses the championship belt and drops to Number 2 in the chart, which takes into account both physical and online sales. With Toy Story 4 in cinemas, it’s no surprise that the original Toy Story climbs one place to Number 3 with Toy Story 3 now at Number 6 and Toy Story 2 at Number 8. Former chart-topper How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World drops to Number 4, and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse jumps four spots to Number 5 following Spider-Man – Far From Home hitting the big screen.
There’s another superhero further down the Top 10 as Aquaman splashes in at Number 9, and, finally, the biggest seller of the year so far Bohemian Rhapsody returns to the Top 10 at 10.
This week’s Official Film Chart online show features a clip of Jordan Peele’s modern-day horror Us, which is available to Download & Keep from 15th July.
