News from around the web

For a second week on the trot Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is the top home entertainment film of the week while JoJo Rabbit is the top new film at 2.

  8. Sonic The Hedgehog
  9. Knives Out
  10. Rocketman

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.

Frozen II

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.

Jumanji: The Next Level

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.

Knives Out

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.

Le Mans '66

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)

  1. Frozen II
  2. Jumanji: The Next Level
  3. Knives Out
  4. Bloodshot
  5. Le Mans '66
  6. Downton Abbey
  7. Rocketman
  8. Joker
  9. Trolls
  10. Charlie's Angels

With Disney's live action The Lion King remaining at the top of the UK box office there were no big new releases so André Rieu 2019 Maastricht Concert: Shall We Dance? Event Cinema showing came in as the highest new entry.

The Lion king

Remaining at the top of the UK box office this week is the live action movie remake from Disney which takes an amazing £10.6 Million on its 2nd weekend.

This puts the films total gross at £36.8 Million puts its above that of the original animation, although adjusted for inflation it is well behind, at the moment.

Toy Story 4

The Pixar animation sits at number 2 again this week with a gross of £2.5 Million after 6 weeks of release.

The film now has a total gross in the Uk of £51 Million easily putting it as the second highest of the year.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Sony's MCU movie is at number 3 this week with £1.7 Million putting it at £30.5 Million for its total gross.

André Rieu 2019 Maastricht Concert: Shall We Dance?

André Rieu 2019 Maastricht Concert: Shall We Dance?

Always a popular pull on the Event Cinema scene the 2019 Maastricht Concert from André Rieu enters the box office at number 4 with £1.5 Million.


The Danny Boyle directed movie falls to 5 this week with £613,000 over the weekend pushing its total to £11 Million after 5 weeks.

Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans

May a bit of a disappointment the movie version of popular childrens TV show Horrible Histories enters at 6 this week with £609,490.



Maybe making its last appearence on the box office this week the Elton John fantasy Bio-Pic falls to number 15 after 10 weeks with a total gross of £24.4 Million.

Roaring into the UK box office at number 1 is Jon Favreau's live action remake of the Disney animated movie of the same name from 1994.

Toy Story 4

The Lion King

As expected the Disney movie remake of their classic animated tale hits the top in big style with a debut weekend of £16.6 Million.

The film took an incredibly 68% of the top 15 gross.

This isn't too far behind the live remake of Beauty And The Beast, which is so far the top grossing of this trend, which took £19.7 Million in 2017.

That film went on to gross £72.4 Million, so a £50 Million+ total is not out of the question.

Toy Story 4

The Disney Pixar fourquel takes £2.7 Million on its 5th weekend of release as it holds firm at number 2 on the box office.

The films UK total now stands at a very respectable £47.2 Million.


Spider-Man: Far From Home

The post Avengers: Endgame movie falls from the top to number 3 this week with a gross of £2.3 Million pushing the films total to £27.2 Million after 3 weeks.

The film is now the 5th highest grossing film of 2019, and interestingly the whole top 5 of the year are Disney properties.


Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis film based on the music of The Beatles sits at number 4 this week with a weekend gross of £774 Thousand pushing its total to £9.9 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Annabelle Comes Home

The Conjuring Universe movie falls to number 5 on its 2nd weekend taking £770 Thousand for a £4 Million total.


The Elton John film has been on the box office for 9 weeks now and has taken £22.9 Million, it is at number 13 this week.

There was little doubt that the new Spider-Man movie would remain at the top of the UK box office on its second weekend of release with only Annabelle Comes Home making a new entry on the top 5.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

The last film in the phase 3 of the MCU remains at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend with a gross of £4.3 Million.

This puts the films total UK gross at £22.5 Million which is well ahead of the films predecessors £16.8 Million after 2 weeks.

In fact the film is on par with Spider-Man 3 which is the top grossing Spidey film at this stage of release.

Toy Story 4

The animated sequel from Pixar is at 2 this week with a weekend take of £3.8 Million.

This puts the films total UK gross at &42.5 Million after 4 weeks of release and is the second highest grossing film of the year behind Avengers: Endgame.

The film is also the highest total grossing movie on the box office this week (outside of Casino Royale on its Secret Cinema run).

Annabelle Comes Home

The new film from The Conjuring Universe enters the UK box office at number 3 this week with £2.2 Million.

This is good for a film from the horror franchise and is the highest opening film from the Annabelle trology.


Danny Boyles Beatle influenced film is at 4 this week with a gross of £1 Million pushing the films total to £8.1 Million.


The Disney Live action movie has been a bit of a surprise hit and this week is at number 5 with £355,707.

This puts the films total UK gross at £35 Million and its the fourth biggest hit of the year so far.

The Matrix

Making a return to the UK box office for its 20th anniversary is the ground breaking movie from 1999 from the Wachowski siblings.

The film is presented in a brand new 4K restoration and takes £163,812 this weekend, the other 2 films in the series were also released in 4K restoration prints.


The Elton John films has the longest run on the chart this weekend with 8 weeks and has a total UK gross of £22.8 Million.
