The new movie has also been given a new title, no longer will be be simply a a sequel as the new title is Downton Abbey: A New Era.
This clearly conjures up connotation of the passing of the flame to the next residence of the famous old house, but lets see when we get more information.
The movie is directed Simon Curtis and stars among others Dominic West, Michelle Dockery and Maggie Smith.
8th April 2020
With no box office charts being produced during the now global COVID-19 pandemic lets take a look at the home entertainment charts once again.
Frozen II unsurprisingly remains at the top, as it will do for the foreseeable future I expect, but we see a high new entry as Jumaji: The Next Level enters at number 2.
Brought onto streaming services ahead of schedule the smash hit theatrical hit follow up to Frozen remains at the top of the chart for a third week.
Released into theatres towards the end of 2019 the movie took an excellent £36 Million over 11 weeks of release hitting the top spot on its debut.
The film is the highest new entry on this week chart at number 2.
Rian Johnsons whodunnit movie starring Daniel Craig remains at number 3 this week as it spends a third week on the chart.
Brought onto streaming services after only a week at the box office the film is a bit of a flop for Vin Diesel, this week the film remains at number 4 on its second weekend of release.
The Oscar nominated film falls to number 5 this week on its fourth week on the home entertainment chart.
Here is the full top 10 home entertainment chart (disk sales and streaming services)
1st April 2020
With the box office chart currently on hold until further notice lets take a look at the home entertainment sector where for the second week running Frozen II is the top selling DVD, Blu-ray or streamed film.
The smash hit follow up to Disneys Frozen was a hit at the UK box office from Mid November 2019 where the film entered the chart at the top until Mid February 2020.
The animated movie took an amazing £53 Million in the UK and $1.5 Billion globally.
The Oscar nominated film starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon hit the UK box office in November 2019 when it made number 2.
It finished it theatrical run in mid December when it had taken just under £6 Million.
Rian Johnsons love letter to the murder mystery was a critical hit at the box office at the end of November 2019 where it was a number 2 hit.
The movie made £13 Million over an 8 week run at the cinema.
The first casualty of the coronavirus shutdown the Vin Diesel superhero movie spent a single week on the box office the weekend before things closed down where it made half a million pound.
The movie was fast tracked to streaming at is the number 4 film this week.
The 2019 reboot of the female private investigators who work for a mysterious billionaire was a bit of a flop at the end of last year when it spent just 2 weeks on the box office taking £1.1 Million.
Here is the full top 10 movies available to watch at home as compiled by officialcharts.com
5th November 2019
Director Todd Phillips movie Joker is proving that not all thing superhero has to be Disney as the movie spends a 5th weekend at the top, while the animated movie The Addams Family makes a very rare move on the chart and Doctor Sleep makes its debut lower than expected.
The Joaquin Phoenix starring movie spends a 5th weekend at the top of the box office, the most in 2019, with a weekend gross of £2.5 Million, yet again a very slim drop from the previous week.
Admittedly this is not the summer where weekend grosses are much higher but this is still an massive achievement and the film has been a monster hit for the DC Universe and Warner Bros.
The movies total gross in the UK is now £51.5 Million, it is the 4th highest grossing film of 2019 and is now the 35th highest grossing film ever.
After a fairly low debut of number 4 last weekend the animated film based on the 60's TV show makes the unprecedented move of not only going up the chart to number 2 but also taking more money than its debut.
It was a school holiday which will have helped the movie but a weekend gross of £2.2 Million is more than £100,000 more than last week.
The film has a total gross of £6.9 Million.
Interesting to note that over the week Monday - Sunday it actually beat Joker in week grosses by a slim margin.
Disneys sequel movie falls to 3 this weekend with £1.8 Million for a total gross of £11.6 Million after 3 weeks of release.
Highest new film of the week is the long awaited sequel to Stanley Kubrick's cult classic The shining.
The movie is also based on a Stephen King book and after much publicity the movie makes is debut at number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.4 Million.
A lot lower than expectation, and with Halloween well and truly out of the way, the film may struggle over the coming months, especially with some big movie due for release over the rest of November and December.
Hailed as a return to form for the Terminator franchise the movie has simply not ignited the box office and on its second weekend it falls to number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.2 Million.
This means that after 2 weeks the film has taken just £5.3 Million, which is lower than the previous movie, Terminator Genisys, by a couple of million.
The movie is also not performing as well as expected across the world, does this mean that the Terminator franchise is dead? This film reportedly cost over $200 Million to make, not including marketing cost, will the studio still want to make more movie when this one looks like it will loose money?
The British TV show movie is at number 15 this weekend and has spent 8 weeks on the box office, the longest, and has a total UK gross of £27.7 Million.
