This week on The Official Film Chart, Titanic sails in, and Dune is blown back in, but it’s Avatar that swims its way back to the top!
Welcome to The Official Film Chart.
THE OFFICIAL CHART
This week sees a few surprises hitting the placings. Two titles return while a third arrives for the very first time. With a heavy heart, we must bid farewell to Shazam: Fury Of The Gods, Jurassic World: Dominion, and Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical. And we have a brand new number one. Put your bathing suit on as we dive in to take a look.
THE WAY OF WATER RESURFACES AT NUMBER ONE!
Avatar: The Way Of Water flies back up to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart, earning a sixth non-consecutive week at the top. Lifting an impressive 13 places this week following its release on DVD, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and 4K UHD, could this be the beginning of another several-week run at the top of the charts?
FAST X RUNS LOW ON FUEL!
The Fast & Furious franchise’s latest chapter, Fast X drops to Number 2, following its Number 1 debut last week. (Read our review here.)

DUNE BLOWS BACK IN!
Dune has made a strong comeback this week, climbing an impressive 15 spots to secure the Number 7 position on the chart. The reason behind this resurgence is the release of the second trailer for its sequel, Dune: Part 2, which is scheduled to arrive in theatres this November. (Read our review here.)
TITANIC FINALLY SAILS INTO THE TOP TEN!
