The Official Film Chart | The UK Top Ten (24th May)
The Official Film Chart sees Renfield take a bite, and Cocaine Bear returns, but we are still screaming at number one!
Welcome to The Official Film Chart.
THE UK TOP TEN
We gain four titles and lose four this week. As always, we bid goodbye to the departing movies. And as such, it is farewell to Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania, Dune, Lamborghini-The Man Behind The Legend, and Top Gun: Maverick. But what are our four newbies? Let’s find out.
WE ARE STILL SCREAMING AT THE TOP!
Scream VI claims a second week at the top of the Official Film Chart. Scaring its way to the top on digital downloads only for a second week running, the film holds off the closest competition. (Read our review here.)
AVATAR TREADING WATER AT NUMBER 2!
Avatar: The Way of Water treads water at Number 2 for a second week.
FAST 9 RACES UP THE CHART!
The speedy resurgence of Fast & Furious 9 sees it race up six places to Number 3 following the release of Fast X last week.
PUSS IN BOOTS LOSES A WISH!
The animated sequel Puss In Boots: The Last Wish drops one place to Number 4.
RENFIELD TAKES A BITE OUT OF THE CHART!
Brand new at Number 5 and our highest new entry of the week is Vampiric comedy-horror Renfield. Starring Nicholas Hoult as the titular character and loyal servant to the narcissistic Dracula (Nicholas Cage), and based in the modern day, after centuries of servitude Renfield decides to see if there’s a life outside of his codependent relationship with his boss – and all the demands and bloodshed that comes with it.
WE FINALLY GET A KNOCK AT THE CABIN!
Terrifying horror-mystery Knock at the Cabin is next up at Number 6, flying 13 places to enter the Top 10 for the first time. M Night Shyamalan directs a strong cast including Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, and Ben Aldridge, telling the story of a young family who must decide whether they live or die to save the world from an impending apocalypse.

DOWNTON ABBEY’S NEW ERA IS ENDING!
Downton Abbey: A New Era falls a place to take residence at number 9.
WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT AT NUMBER 10?
Finally, a new rom-com enters the arena as What’s Love Got To Do With It? zooms 18 places to Number 10. Documentary-maker and dating app addict Zoe (Lily James) decides to chronicle her childhood friend Kaz’s (Shazad Latif) journey from London to Lahore, as he opts for an arranged marriage in Pakistan to a bride chosen by his parents.
And that is this week’s top ten. Next week sees the digital release of the brilliant John Wick Chapter 4 (Read our review here.) He will give the chart a good shakeup. So until next week…
Whatever you decide, whatever you buy, stay safe, be kind, look after each other, and happy viewing!
