Meanwhile, Le Mans ‘66 hangs on at Number 2 on the grid, as Last Christmas hops five places to Number 3 following its release on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD. Last week’s Number 1, Midway, has dropped to Number 5.
A second new entry sits at Number 6 in the chart: Knives Out, which sees Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) brought in to investigate the death of renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). Can Blanc uncover the truth behind the death of the celebrated writer?
