Long-awaited Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s sequel Bill & Ted Face the Music rose to No. 1 on the weekly (through Jan. 20) Official Film Chart in the United Kingdom — the world’s No. 2 home entertainment market — thanks to digital downloads.
The third instalment of the much-loved pairing of Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves debuted at No. 3 before rising to the top of the chart this week, fighting off competition from recent pole sitters, including Warner’s Tenet (No. 2) and last week’s chart topper, The New Mutants (Disney’s 20th Century Studios), which pushed to No. 3.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man: Far From Home was back in the top five, rising two places to No. 4, while Roald Dahl’s The Witches (Warner) slipped down to No. 5. Bad Boys for Life (Sony) climbed to No. 6, while The Greatest Showman (20th Century) jumped three spots to No. 7. Sony’s Jumanji: The Next Level (No. 8) and Little Women (No. 9) switched places on this week’s chart.
Finally, Le Mans ’66 (the international title of 20th Century’s Ford v Ferrari) sped up seven places to rebound to No. 10. The film, based on the true story of the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race, last featured in the Official Film Chart Top 10 in August 2020.
