Top Gun Makes History As It Races To Number 1

Top Gun

Top Gun makes history this week as it charges up to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart.

With the upcoming release of long awaited- sequel; Top Gun: Maverick, in cinemas this week, the original Top Gun from 1986 soars from Number 5 to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart as fans reconnect with the franchise – becoming the oldest film to top the Official Film Chart ever!

Leading with 70% of its total made up of digital downloads, Top Gun’s success this week reflects the UK’s enduring love of the digital format, where ease and convenience are perfectly suited for their home entertainment needs. The growing wealth and breadth of content available on home entertainment allow classic films such as Top Gun to enjoy a resurgence with new generations decades after their initial release.



Meanwhile, last week’s chart-topper Uncharted moves down to Number 2, Sing 2 drops to Number 3, and Spider-Man: No Way Home lands at Number 4.

This week’s highest new entry comes from comedy-drama Dog, starring Channing Tatum and directed by Tatum and Reid Carolin – both of whom make their directorial debuts with the film. In the film an army ranger (Tatum) must transport the beloved military working dog of a fellow soldier to his funeral, which becomes the road-trip of a lifetime.

Dune finishes at Number 6, while The Matrix Resurrections drops to Number 7 and biographical drama Belfast finishes at 8. Disney’s Encanto rebounds to Number 9, and J-Lo and Owen Wilson round off the Top 10 with Marry Me.

Now, as well as OfficialCharts.com, the Official Film Chart can also be found on FindAnyFilm.com – the ultimate site for Film and TV fans to discover all the legal ways to buy the entertainment they want on disc and digital formats.
