This week on The Official Film Chart, The Little Mermaid sinks, and the Fantastic Beasts return, giving Spider-Man the top spot!
Welcome to The Official Film Chart.
This week on the chart, we get one new entry and one re-entry into the placings. As such, there’s no room in the top ten for The Flash, and A Man Called Otto. But where have these two newbies entered the chart? Time to swing from a thread as we find out.
SPIDER-MAN WEBS HIS WAY TO THE TOP!
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse catapults straight in at Number 1 on the Official Film Chart. The animated Spider-Man adventure, and follow-up to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse manages to outsell the rest of the Top 5 combined on digital downloads only. In the film, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) returns as the web-slinging hero, this time encountering a team of Spider-People who he must work with to come up with a plan to handle a villain more powerful than they have ever encountered, posing a threat to the Multiverse.
