Endgame Smashes Records

Avengers: Endgame smashes records to become the fastest-selling digital download film of all time

Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame debuts at Number 1 on the Official Film Chart with the highest-ever opening week of digital download sales.

Just five weeks after becoming the highest-grossing film of all time at the box-office, Endgame clocks up a whopping 335,400 downloads in its first week – smashing the previous record held by Bohemian Rhapsody, which entered the history books back in February with 265,000 downloads in its first eight days. Close behind in third place is Endgame’s prequel Avengers: Infinity War which claimed almost 253,000 in the same period.

Elsewhere in this week’s chart, the Hellboy re-boot climbs two to Number 2, meaning last week’s Number 1 Shazam! is pushed to Number 3 and another previous chart-topper Dumbo, drops two to Number 4.



Red Joan zooms into the Top 10 for the first time, climbing 13 places to Number 5 following its release on disc.  Starring Dame Judi Dench, the film tells the story of British-born Joan Stanley, a KGB recruit in the 1930s who spied on the British government and remained undetected for over 50 years. The film is adapted from a book loosely based on the life of a real former civil servant, Melita Norwood.

Fellow Avenger Captain Marvel drops one to Number 6, as the family-friendly adventure Wonder Park is the week’s highest climber, rising 26 spots to Number 7. Aquaman sinks one to Number 8 on his 20th week in the chart. 

Stephen King adaptation Pet Sematary drop six spots to land at Number 9 just ahead of country musical drama Wild Rose at 10.

On this week’s online show check out a clip of Detective Pikachu, starring Ryan Reynolds as the voice of the crime solving Pokémon.Detective Pikachu is available to Download & Keep from September 2.
