World War I epic 1917 debuts at Number 1 on this week’s Official Film Chart on digital downloads only.
Two British soldiers (played by Dean-Charles Chapman and George Mackay) race against time to deliver a message that will stop an isolated regiment marching straight into a deadly trap. Based loosely on a story that writer and director Sam Mendes’ grandfather once shared, the film was intended to feel like a tense, ticking-clock thriller, and was edited and filmed to appear as two continuous ‘real-time’ takes.
Our second new entry this week is Disney’s Onward which also enters with purely digital sales after it’s home entertainment release was brought forward by 8 weeks. The animated fantasy adventure follows two teenage elves as they set off on a quest to reunite with their late father for one day. Tom Holland and Chris Pratt star as brother elves Ian and Barley Lightfoot respectively.
Knocked from its three-week stint at Number 1, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker lands at Number 3. Taika Waititi’s award-winning Jojo Rabbit hops to Number 4; Birds of Prey is at 5. Frozen 2 climbs up a place to Number 6. Other films holding on to a spot in the Top 10 are Jumanji: The Next Level (7), The Gentlemen (8), Spies in Disguise (9) and Sonic the Hedgehog (10).
