Ralph Breaks The Internet tops film chart
James R | On 10, Apr 2019
Ralph Breaks The Internet smashed the Official Film Chart this week as it climbed three places to reach Number 1 following its release on disc. The animated sequel sees John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman return to voice Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz as the friends who discover a Wi-Fi router in their arcade and a whole new adventure ensues.
Ralph’s rise meant that Bohemian Rhapsody remained at Number 2 for another week, as last week’s Number 1, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald dropped to Number 3.
This week’s highest new entry was Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse at fourth place on digital downloads alone. This animated take on the Marvel character follows teenager Miles Morales, the Spider-Man of his world, who crosses paths with five counterparts from other dimensions as they team up to stop a threat that affects all realities.
Creed II slipped to Number 5, while Robin Hood was this week’s Number 6 and former chart-topper A Star Is Born slid to Number 7.
Sci-fi Horror Annihilation also debuted this week at Number 8, thanks to its disc release after hitting Netflix last year. Natalie Portman stars as a biologist, who while mourning the disappearance of her husband, signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don’t apply.
Incredibles 2 returned to the Top 10 after climbing seven places to Number 9, ahead of Christopher Robin at Number 10.
That means that The Greatest Showman’s phenomenal run in the Official Film Chart Top 10 has come to an end: it slid to Number 11 this week, the first time the musical Goliath has dropped out of the Top 10 since the Official Film Chart was established. It started at Number 3 on the first ever Official Film Chart in November last year and has spent 22 weeks in the Top 10. The all-conquering film was confirmed as the best-selling film of 2018 based on physical and digital sales and continues to be massively popular in 2019.
The Official Film Chart video show gives a handy rundown of the table, as well as offering an exclusive look at Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns, which is available to Download & Keep from 15th April. You can watch that here – and scroll down below to see the chart in full.
