Alita: Battle Angel Fights To The Top

Alita: Battle Angel Fights To The Top

Sci-Fi adventure, Alita: Battle Angel completes a three week climb to the top of the Official Film Chart, knocking Captain Marvel into second place in the process.

Based on the widely celebrated manga character created by Yukito Kishiro, the Robert Rodriguez directed film tells the tale of a reactivated cyborg on a quest to remember her past life and stars Rosa Salazar in the titular role with a strong supporting cast including Christoph Waltz and Jennifer Connelly. As a result Captain Marvel slips to Number 2; its fourth week on the chart, all spent in either the Number 1 or Number 2 position. 

The week’s highest new entry comes from Tim Burton’s live action remake of Disney’s animated classic Dumbo flying in on digital downloads only, at Number 3.  Starring Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Colin Farrell, the film blends live action with computer generated graphics to bring the story of the elephant with the oversized ears to a whole new generation.   



At Numbers 4 to 6 are previous chart toppers, Fisherman’s Friends (4), Mary Poppins Returns (5) and  Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (6).  Right behind that, 1994’s The Lion King climbs into the Top 10 for the first time on the Official Film Chart in the wake of the remake hitting cinema screens.

Bohemian Rhapsody and How To Train Your Dragon – The Hidden World trade places with the latter up a place to Number 8 as the former slips to 9. Rounding out the Top 10, last week’s highest new entry, the creepy Us, falls five places to Number 10. Further down the Top 40, Tom Cruise’s eighties classic Top Gun climbs into the Top 20 at Number 18 as the trailer for the highly anticipated sequel continues to build excitement.

This week’s Official Film Chart online show takes a sneak peek at animated adventure Wonder Park available to Download & Keep from August 5th.
