This week on The Official Film Chart, we get a Ticket To Paradise, and Dune blows back in, but nothing can sink Avatar: The Way Of Water at the top!
Welcome to The Official Film Chart.
THE UK TOP TEN
This week on the chart, we see three re-entries hit the bottom placings. To make way for these returning favorites, we must say farewell to A Man Called Otto, Babylon, and Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody. And it isn’t a shock to discover we have a non-mover at the top of the chart.
AVATAR SWIMS ON IN THE TOP SPOT!
Following another impressive week of sales, Avatar: The Way of Water swims into a second week at the top of the Official Film Chart. Holding back some former chart-toppers once again, the long-awaited sequel outsells the rest of the Top 10 combined to enjoy its second week at Number 1.
MATILDA HOLDS FAST AT NUMBER TWO!
Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical continues its success by holding onto the number 2 position.
