Bill & Ted Face The Music rocked back up to No. 1 on the U.K.’s weekly Official (home entertainment) Film Chart through Feb. 3 following its release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The sequel rose to chart-topping glory for the first time in January, and makes a return after seeing a surge in sales thanks to its physical release. The previous week’s chart topper, The New Mutants, fell three places to No. 4.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters climbed up to No. 3 as consumers revisited the title ahead of pending release Godzilla vs. Kong. Roald Dahl’s The Witches held onto the No. 5 spot.

Further down, The Doorman zoomed up 10 places to No. 9 to enter the Top 10 for the first time. The heist film stars Ruby Rose as a former U.S. marine, who has to save her niece and nephew from armed thieves trying to steal priceless paintings from their home. Finally, quirky Hitler comedy Jojo Rabbit rounded off the Top 10 for a second week running.

2017’s musical The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman, marked another chapter of success as it rose back up to No. 2. One of the most successful releases to grace the chart across both home entertainment and music, the film has appeared in the Top 10 every year since 2018 when the Official Film Chart was established, and currently stands at 3.27 million sales across disc and digital in the U.K.

In total, The Greatest Showman has spent the equivalent of more than two years on the Official Film Chart, with 108 non-consecutive weeks in the Top 40. It’s the most for any film since the chart’s inception, with A Star Is Born coming in second with 82 total weeks, and Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody in third place with 75 weeks in the Top 40.
