Dumbo Flies To Number 1

Dumbo Flies To Number 1

Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo remake flies to Number 1 following its release on disc. Rising two places, the much-loved Disney flick knocks last week’s chart-topper Alita: Battle Angel from the chart summit to Number 4; former Number 1 Captain Marvel holds on at Number 2, while superhero Shazam! debuts at Number 3 on digital downloads only.

Starring Zachary Levi, Mark Strong and Asher Angel, Shazam! is an action-comedy about a teenage foster child, Billy Batson, who is gifted super-powers by a wizard. When he says the Wizard’s name – Shazam – he transforms into a fully-grown adult superhero. The film follows Billy as he learns how to correctly use his powers to fight crime and help his community, whilst also searching for his birth mother.

Jordan Peele’s horror Us rebounds five places to its previous peak of Number 5 following its physical release, ahead of Mary Poppins Returns which drops one place to Number 6.



Aquaman zooms 21 places back into the Top 10 at Number 7; Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse drops two to Number 8; Cornish singers’ story Fisherman’s Friends is down five to Number 9. Finally, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald shoots up 27 places to round off this week’s Top 10, a nice birthday present for author J K Rowling who celebrated her 54th birthday last week.

This week’s Official Film Chart online show features an exciting clip of Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the titular character in the new Hellboy reboot, available to Download & Keep from August 9.
