Stan & Ollie take a bow at the top of the UK Film Chart
James R | On 13, Jun 2019
Four weeks after Stan & Ollie debuted in the Official Film Chart, the Laurel and Hardy biopic has performed an impressive encore, jumping up a massive 28 places to reach Number 1 in the UK Film Chart, following its release on disc.
Starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, Stan & Ollie follows the comedy duo as they attempt to reignite their film careers on a gruelling theatre tour of post-war UK. Their relationship is put to the test, with their future hanging in the balance.
Straight in at Number 2 is The LEGO Movie 2, which takes place five years after everything was awesome with a new threat looming large; invaders from outer space. Million seller Bohemian Rhapsody spends another week in the Top 10 as it holds firm at Number 3 this week as last week’s chart topper, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, slips to Number 4.
There’s a second new entry at Number 5 as The Mule sneaks into the Top 10. Clint Eastwood directed and stars in the story of an ageing war veteran whose business is in trouble and unwittingly signs on as a drug mule for a Mexican cartel. Transformers prequel Bumblebee drops to 6, M Night Shyamalan’s Glass is at 7; Aquaman climbs up to 8; The Secret Life of Pets slides to 9 and at 10, Mary Poppins Returns closes this week’s countdown.
Read on for the Top 10, and this week’s Official Film Chart online show, which features a sneak peek look at Liam Neeson’s Cold Pursuit, which is available to Download & Keep from 17th June.
