Disney’s ‘Onward’ Atop U.K. Weekly Official Film Chart

After five months and four stints as runner-up, Disney and Pixar Animation’s Onward finished atop the U.K.’s Official Film Chart for the week ending Oct. 21. The animated fantasy adventure stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as brother elves Ian and Barley Lightfoot, who set off on a quest to reunite with their late father for one day.

Onward pushed Warner’s four-week chart-topper Scoob! to No. 2, as Disney’s Frozen II finished at No. 3. Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith entered the chart at No. 4 thanks to a limited-edition Blu-ray Disc Steelbook release.

Signature Entertainment’s Papillon, starring Rami Malek and Charlie Hunnam, dropped one place to No. 5; The Greatest Showman (20th Century Home Entertainment) held on to No. 6, and record-breaking former chart topper Trolls World Tour (Universal Pictures Home Entertainment) dropped to No. 7.

Blumhouse horror movie You Should Have Left, starring Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried, debuted at No. 8. In the film, a former banker (Bacon) and his actress wife (Seyfried) book a holiday in the remote Welsh countryside with their daughter (Avery Essex). The perfect retreat turns into a nightmare when banker Bacon loses his grasp on reality, and suspects a sinister force is within the house.

Finally, two Paramount Home Entertainment releases, Elton John biopic Rocketman and video game adaptation Sonic the Hedgehog moved into the No. 9 and No. 10 spots for the week.
