Surprise! Joker Holds Onto No. 1: Official Film Chart

Joker holds onto No. 1 on Official Film Chart

Surprise! Joker has the last laugh with a second week at Number 1 following its release on DVD, Blu-ray & 4K UHD.

Shifting a staggering 211,000 copies on disc, Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar-winning performance denies Maleficent: Mistress of Evil a top-scoring debut. No surprise there…

Instead, the Disney flick takes Number 2 on digital downloads only and is the highest new entry this week. Angelina Jolie reprises her role of the titular character as Maleficent and goddaughter Aurora (Elle Fanning) begin to question the complex family ties that bind them.



Previous Number 1 Downton Abbey drops to Number 3, quickly followed by a brand-new entry from A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (4), which sees the much-loved Aardman character on a mission to save an alien with amazing powers after she crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm.

The third new entry in this week’s Top 10 comes from Zombieland: Double Tap (5), the sequel to 2009’s cult classic Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin as survivors of a zombie apocalypse.

Animation Abominable drops to Number 6, just ahead of Academy Award-winning Judy at 7.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood lands at Number 8 this week, just ahead of Will Smith’s Gemini Man (9) and finally, Elton John biopic Rocketman at Number 10.

This week’s show features a sneak preview of Doctor Sleep, available to Download & Keep from February 24.
