Mary Poppins Returns Floats In To Number 1

Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns debuts at Number 1 with the second highest weekly sales of the year so far.  

The 2018 sequel to the much-loved 1964 Disney classic has racked up over 280,000 sales on disc and digital formats. The only film to surpass this figure in a week is 2019’s biggest seller so far, Bohemian Rhapsody which holds at Number 3 on this week’s chart.

Starring Emily Blunt as the titular character, the sequel sees beloved nanny Mary Poppins return to London during the Depression to visit now-grown Jane and Michael Banks (Emily Mortimer and Ben Whishaw), who have suffered a personal loss. With the aid of her cheerful lamplighter friend Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), Mary tries to help the family – now including Michael’s three children – to rediscover the joy and wonder that’s been missing.

Meanwhile, the original Mary Poppins (1964) enjoys a resurgence as it floats up to Number 21 on this week’s chart.  It has now sold over 2.1 million copies on disc and digital download in total.

Last week’s Number 1 Aquaman bobs down one place to Number 2. Ralph Breaks The Internet drops two to 4, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald remains at 5. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hangs in the Top 10 at Number 6.

A Star Is Born celebrates its tenth week in the Top 10, this week climbing one place to Number 7, while Venom takes over this week’s Number 8 position.

Ahead of the cinematic release of Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War returns to the Top 10 after climbing six places to Number 9

Finally, a second appearance from Disney’s magical nanny as the boxset of Mary Poppins/Mary Poppins Returns debuts at Number 10.

This week’s Official Film Chart online show contains a sneak peek at Bumblebee, a prequel to the Transformers films which is available to download & keep from April 29.
