Godzilla vs Kong stomps into top spot on UK Official Film Chart
Staff Reporter | On 11, Jun 2021
Godzilla vs Kong has stomped into first place in the UK’s Official Film Chart.
The monster sequel has battled its way up two places in the only weekly chart in the world that counts both physical disc and digital download sales, rising from its debut third place to the top spot. On digital downloads only the film triumphs over two big recent releases: former Number 1 Zack Snyder’s Justice League (now in second [;ace) – the biggest title of the week on physical formats – and Tom & Jerry: The Movie (now in third).
Suspenseful 2018 horror A Quiet Place flies up 15 places to Number 4, landing in the Top 10 for the very first time. Starring John Krasinski and Emily Blunt alongside Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, the critically acclaimed film enjoys its UK chart peak after the release of its sequel in cinemas last week.
Meanwhile, Raya and the Last Dragon drops one place to Number 5, dystopian action film Chaos Walking climbs one to Number 6, Wonder Woman 1984 lands at Number 7 and Peter Rabbit is down two spots to 8.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 sci-fi classic Total Recall re-enters the chart at Number 9, marking a new peak for the film and its first stint in the Top 10 thanks to a surge of digital download. Finally, Spider-Man: Homecoming rounds off the countdown at Number 10.
Read on below for the full top 10, plus the Official Film Chart online show, which features a sneak peek of Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan in Ammonite, available to download from today after its premium VOD release earlier this year.
