As cinemas reopen the big new films will be a while before they are released, so studios are re-releasing classic movies, and on its 40th Anniversary the BBFC have reclassified the movie a PG.

The movie, released in 1980, has been a U age rating, even on its many home entertainment released and cinema rereleased.

As guidelines the BBFC uses have changed the British classification body has reclassified the movie a PG.

PG Certificate

At the moment Star Wars and Star Wars: The Return Of The Jedi are still U rated, but to be fair Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has always been the darkest movie, and the nightmare cave scene and the hand cutting off scene MAY justify the new rating.

The movie is rereleased when UK cinemas reopen on July 4th, and as the 27 year old Jurassic park is currently the top movie in America who knows what will happen to the UK box office in a couple of weeks.

Sonic The Hedgehog gets a physical and digital to own release and tops the home entertainment charts taking a massive leap in the process, top new film is Emma at number 17!

Here is a rundown of the top 5 home entertainment charts this week.

Sonic The Hedgehog

The speedy blue hedgehog tops the home entertainment chart making a leap from number 37 on its 10th week of release, it is available to own this week.

Despite the original controversy when the original trailer was release the film was a big box office hit in mid February when it was release, it hit the top on its debut with £4 Million.

The movie then spent 5 weeks on the box office before cinemas closed and took £18 Million during that time.


Sam Mendes World War movie is bouncing around the home entertainment charts and this week goes back to number 2 on its 6th week.


Falling from its debut position at the top last week the Robert Downey Jr. movie falls to number 3 on its second week of release.


Pixar movies have always done well on the home entertainment front and their latest is no exception, it falls to number 4 this week, its 6th week of release.


The Vin Diesel starring movie also goes from early access to physical and digital owned this week and makes a leap from 28 to number 5 in the process on its 5th weekend of release.



The top new movie of the week is at number 17, the Jane Austen novel adaptation hit movie theatres mid February taking £7 Million over 5 weeks of release.

Here is the top 10 home entertainment chart 17th - 23rd June 2020.

  1. Sonic The Hedgehog
  2. 1917
  3. Dolittle
  4. Onward
  5. Bloodshot
  6. bad Boys For Life
  7. Jumanji: The Next Level
  8. Little Women
  9. Frozen II
  10. Cats

Following a trend set by Universal with The Invisible Man and Warner Bros. with Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn), Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel will get a release on digital March 24th, next Tuesday!

The Invisible man

Coupled with bad reviews and not so good word of mouth the movie which was released at the box office last Friday (March 13th) the film will have one of the shortest windows of a major blockbuster.

The self isolation and lockdowns of the world during this unprecedented time of the coronavirus pandemic is setting new standards of box office to home entertainment window.

For big blockbusters the window has always been 3 - 6 months, unlike the 80's and 90's when the window from box office to VHS could be a year or more.

We live in a time now when people have much better home entertainment systems, as opposed to a 14 inch low quality TV with a mono speaker attached and the best way to see a film was at the cinema.

It will be interesting to see if this 'experiment' sets a standard or its just a temporary measure while the world deals with the viral outbreak.

With the release of a new Disney Pixar movie we get a new number film film as Onward makes its debut at the top knocking off The Invisible Man while British movie Military Wives makes its debut at number 3.


Disney and Pixar release their latest movie and first film in a while that is not a sequel which makes its debut at the top of the box office with £3.4 Million.

The outbreak of the Coronavirus has had an impact on the box office and this films debut gross is lower than expected.

Depending on how things pan out this could have a major effect on the current releases, but Disney have the power to keep this in cinemas as we could see a boost over the upcoming Easter holidays.

The Invisible Man

Falling to number 2 after a single week at the top Universals alternative monster movie takes £1.5 Million over the weekend to give it a £5 Million total gross after 2 weeks of release.

Military Wives

Military Wives

Following the fortunes of a group of British women who husbands are on active duty who come together to form a quire the movie makes its debut at number 3 with just under a million.

Movies like this have always done well in the UK and although this doesn't have the same pull as the likes of Calendar Girls the film could see a long run at the box office.

Sonic The Hedgehog

The former number 1 Jim Carrey starring video game adaptation falls to number 4 this week with £951,103 which give it a £18 Million total after 4 weeks of release.


Finally on the top 5 is the Oscar winning movie which this week becomes the highest grossing foreign language film in the UK as its gross goes to £11 Million after 5 weeks.

The movies weekend gross is £529,550, the whole of the top 5 having clearly been hit by the public not going to their local multiplexes.


The highest total grossing movie and the longest run on this weeks box office with £43 Million after 9 weeks of release.
