Mortal Kombat leads digital downloads in UK chart
James R | On 09, Jul 2021
Mortal Kombat has landed in UK living rooms with a punch, leading the week’s digital downloads in the UK Film Chart.
The action-fantasy, based on the video game franchise, sees a young MMA fighter seek out planet Earth’s greatest champions to face off with their enemies in a high-stakes battle for the universe. The film is the week’s biggest seller on digital downloads, earning it a second spot in UK’s Official Film Chart, the only weekly chart in the world to count both physical disc and digital sales.
While Mortal Kombat is the highest new entry in the chart, it couldn’t knock Godzilla vs Kong, which has roared its way into its fourth week in the number one spot, thanks to strong DVD, Blu-ray & 4K UHD sales.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League stands tall at Number 3 as Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory enters the Official Film Chart for the very first time at Number 4, thanks to a new 50th Anniversary reissue and brand new 4K restoration.
Another big new entry comes from the Oscar-winning American drama Nomadland, which starts at Number 5 following its release on disc. Tom & Jerry: The Movie drops two places to Number 6 while last week’s highest new entry Batman: The Long Halloween Part 1 drops five places to Number 7.
Raya And The Last Dragon holds at Number 8, Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw climbs to Number 9 and, finally, Wonder Woman 1984 drops to Number 10.
Read on for the full top 10, plus this week’s Official Film Chart online show, which features a look at Brad Pitt and Jason Statham in crime caper Snatch, which is coming to 4K UHD on 12th July.
