Not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4!! Toy Story 4 dominates the charts for a fourth week despite a resurgence from Yesterday and Avengers Endgame
Welcome once again to the official top ten best selling home entertainment releases that you, the public have been buying this past seven days. We sadly bid goodbye to ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘, ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters‘ and ‘Hocus Pocus‘ from the chart this week and welcome two new entries into the chart plus a re-entry that refuses to go away. What could it be? Come with me while we find out.
Ruling the roost for a fourth straight week and being the best selling DVD over the past seven days is ‘Toy Story 4‘. Yes, the toys have no intention of being put away or returning to the toy chest as they once again lead the rest of the chart home. The film is one of the best selling titles of the year to date and will be hoping to hold onto its position to become the Christmas bestseller.
Taking the second position on the chart and boasting the best selling Blu-Ray of the week comes Director Danny Boyle’s Beatles inspired comedy/Drama ‘Yesterday‘. the film has been hanging around the chart for a few weeks now and seems to have lots of life left in it yet. The feel-good film continues to fly off shelves everywhere and looks certain to bother the chart for a while yet.
Mr Stark, he doesn’t feel so good as ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘ slips a place to land at number three. The film was the most downloaded title of the week. Actually, the film only hit DVD and Blu-Ray this past Monday so the slip will probably be only temporary until next weeks chart is announced. Then I expect to see the film swing its way up again and possibly hit number one. Time will tell!
Rising a place to land his magic carpet into the fourth position came Disney’s ‘Aladdin‘. The film continues to sell extremely well and has been one of the years biggest box office and home entertainment success stories.
Rounding out the top five this week and also rising a place is ‘Rocketman‘. Yet again, the film refuses to lie down and is still standing despite bouncing up and down the chart for around a month now.
The scum of the universe has decided to fight back as ‘Men In Black International‘ falls three places to land at this week’s sixth position. The fourth film in the series has also been bouncing up and down the chart for a while now, mainly due to its release onto the disc format. It will be interesting to see how the film fares in the charts as we come up towards Christmas and some of the year’s biggest titles make their bows.
Their bite has been muzzled and their claws have been clipped as ‘The Secret Life Of Pets 2‘ cannot find a way to move out of the seventh position this week. The film hasn’t managed to reach the heights of the original movie but can be considered a small success in its own right.
We thought it was over. We thought they had been defeated. But you can’t keep superheroes down for long. Rising three places and re-entering the chart in the eighth position, the highest-grossing movie of all time and the years biggest selling title of them all makes a return to the top ten as ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ rallies itself. The climax of ten years of Marvel movies has had a boost in fortunes, possibly due to the news that Disney has put forward Oscar nominations to be considered for some of the cast. On a personal note, though I doubt it will happen, I’d LOVE to see Robert Downey JR walk away with a best supporting actor Oscar at next years ceremony as it would be totally deserved.
The eagle has landed as this week’s highest new entry launches itself into the ninth position as ‘Apollo 11‘ touches down. The film, featuring never before seen film footage of one of mankind’s greatest achievements takes a nostalgic look back to that historic day in 1969 when Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins won the space race and became the first people to land on the moon. The documentary has been made and released to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the momentous event.
Rounding out the top ten best selling titles of the week and shooting and kicking its way into the tenth position is french action thriller ‘Anna‘. The film, starring model Sasha Luss as the main character, a top assassin, also stars Helen Mirren, Luke Evans and Cillian Murphy. the film was a box office fizzle upon release but it remains to be seen if its fortunes will be on the up as it hits the home entertainment formats.
Coming to Download and Keep from November 18th, we welcome ‘Horrible Histories: The Movie-Rotten Romans‘. The big-screen version of the long-running CBBC show made itself a decent profit at the box office earlier this summer and will look to repeat the feat as it emerges for viewing at home.
So, can the toys hold on again for another week at number one? Will Spider-Man rally and crawl his way up to finally hit the top spot? Or will the digital release of ‘The Lion King‘ roar in and spoil the party for them all? Check back here again next week for the answers.
Until then, whatever you buy, whatever you decide, happy viewing!
