This week on The Official Film Chart, Indiana Jones is beaten, and Fast X slows, giving Barbie a straight run to the top!
Welcome to The Official Film Chart.
THE OFFICIAL CHART
This week, we see a solitary new entry into the placings alongside two re-entries from a pair of old favourites. As such, it’s the end of the line for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts, No Hard Feelings, and Sisu. And we have a brand new number one. What is the new chart-topper? A rhetorical question: Who do you think?
BARBIE MAKES THE NUMBER ONE SHINE IN PINK!
Barbie makes a Number 1 debut on the Official Film Chart with a huge first-week sales haul. Racking up 94,600 sales on digital downloads only this week, the headline-grabbing, Greta Gerwig-directed and Margot Robbie-starring blockbuster earns the third biggest Official Film Chart debut of 2023 so far, following Avatar: The Way of Water and John Wick: Chapter 4. (Read our review here.)
Barbie’s success comes following a strong summer for the Barbie movie as a whole on the UK charts, with two of its soundtrack singles (Dua Lipa’s Dance the Night and Billie Eilish’s What Was I Made For?) topping the Official Singles Chart, and the album itself spending eight weeks at the top of the Official Compilations Chart.
INDIANA JONES SLIPS ON THE CHART ROCKS!
Meanwhile, at Number 2 is our previous chart-topper, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. (Read our review here.)

THE EQUALIZER SHOOTS UP THE CHART!
The Equalizer 2 rises three places to Number 7 as it rebounds back up the Official Film Chart.
THE ELEMENTS BURN OUT!
Disney and Pixar’s Elemental drops down 4 places to Number 8.
THE DINOSAURS ROAR BACK INTO THE CHART!

PUSS IN BOOTS GETS A LAST WISH!
And finally, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish rockets up 18 places to Number 10.
And just like that, we are done for this week. Barbie should stay on top of the chart next week. But waiting in the wings is the DC superhero movie Blue Beetle, which launches on PVOD on Monday (Read our review here.) In two weeks’ time, we will once again have a battle for chart supremacy. But until next week…
Whatever you decide, whatever you buy, stay safe, be kind, look after each other and happy viewing!
