The Official Film Chart | The UK Top Ten (12 April)
This week on The Official Film Chart, M3gan comes calling, and the Easter Bunny decides to Hop in, but its Avatar: The Way Of Water that splashes its way into the top spot!
Welcome To The Official Film Chart. And I hope you all had a great Easter.
THE OFFICIAL CHART
The top ten this week gets a major shakeup finally. We have two new entries, and two re-entries into the placings. This means there’s no longer any room for Cocaine Bear, John Wick, John Wick-Chapter Two, or Black Adam. Plus we have a brand new number one. And it isn’t a surprise to discover what it is.

AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER SWIMS STRAIGHT TO THE TOP SPOT!

TIME TO GET OUT OF THE POOL!
And that is the top ten for this week. There isn’t much that will trouble Avatar: The Way Of Water at the top for a few weeks. So, it should have an easy time at number one. But until next week…
Whatever you decide, whatever you buy, stay safe, be kind, look after each other, and happy viewing!
