Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo is still flying high in the UK Official Film Chart, the only weekly chart in the world to count both physical disc and digital download sales.
The Disney remake hovers in the Number 1 spot for a second consecutive week, more than doubling the sales of its closest competitor.Keeping Captain Marvel (2) and Shazam! (3) at bay, the movie marks a reunion for Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito and Tim Burton, after they worked together on Batman Returns in 1992.
Hellboy (2019) is the week’s highest new entry based on just two days’ worth of digital downloads. A reboot of Mike Mignola’s graphic novel, this action-fantasy sees anti-hero Hellboy caught between the supernatural and human worlds and forced to battle an ancient sorceress hell-bent on revenge. The film stars Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the eponymous character.
Former chart topper Alita: Battle Angel drops one place to Number 5, while animated adventure Missing Link enters the Top 10 for the first time following its release on disc; zooming up 16 places to Number 6.
Aquaman treads water at Number 7; Mary Poppins Returns drops two places to Number 8; Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse falls one to 9. Finally, A Star Is Born returns to the Top 10 at Number 10.
Read on below for the Top 10 and to see this week’s Official Film Chart online show, which features a featurette of Avengers: Endgame, available to Download & Keep from 19th August.
