Downton Abbey: The Movie Beats Joker To Number 1

Downton Abbey: The Movie Beats Joker To Number 1

Downton Abbey: The Movie has a right royal knees-up on the Official Film Chart this week as it jumps to Number 1 with the biggest sales of 2020 so far.

Outselling the rest of the Top 5 combined with over 240,000 sales – 96% of which are on physical formats, and the largest physical sales in one week since Avengers: Endgame in September 2019 – Downton Abbey denies Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker a Number 1 debut. 

In a week of great performances, Joker enjoys a monumental week on digital formats, racking up 140,500 downloads – the third-largest opening week on digital since records began in 2017.



In Joker, which is nominated for eleven Academy Awards this year, we meet troubled comedian Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), who falls into a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime amid the streets of Gotham – bringing him into the world of his alter-ego The Joker.

Meanwhile, Ad Astra rockets nine places to Number 3 following its release on DVD and Blu-ray, while last week’s chart topper Rambo: Last Blood drops to Number 4 and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood falls to 5.

Rocketman holds on at Number 6, and It: Chapter Two tumbles three places to Number 7.

Judy Garland bio-pic, Judy starring Renée Zellweger makes its Top 10 debut, zooming 15 spots to Number 8, just ahead of Hustlers (9) and Angel Has Fallen, re-entering at Number 10.

This week’s Official Film Chart features an exclusive clip of A Shaun The Sheep Move: Farmageddon, available to Download & Keep from February 10.
