‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’ Claims Third Week at No. 1 on U.K. Home Entertainment Sales Chart

Warner Bros. Pictures’ Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore claimed a third non-consecutive week at No. 1 on the Official Film Chart, the U.K.’s weekly home entertainment sales chart, the week ended Aug. 10.

Thanks to strong sales on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K UHD Blu-ray, the third installment in the “Fantastic Beasts” movie franchise held off the week’s highest new entry, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Downton Abbey: A New Era, which was No. 2.

Entering the chart via digital sales only, A New Era is the sequel to 2019’s Downton Abbey: The Motion Picture, and stars Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter and Michelle Dockery, among other series regulars.

At No. 3 was Disney/Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and at No. 4, for the third consecutive week, was Warner’s gritty The Batman. Former No. 1, Paramount Home Entertainment’s The Lost City, fell to No. 5.

Universal’s Sing 2 remained on the comeback as it climbed one spot (No. 6), followed by Warner’s Dune (No. 7), while Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man: No Way Home fell two spots to No. 8.

The second new entry of the week was the Michael Caine-starring, 1971 crime thriller Get Carter, which debuted in the top 10 following its release on Blu-ray and 4K UHD, after it was remastered by the BFI from the original camera negative.

Finally, The Northman (Universal) finished in the top 10 despite falling five spots from the previous week.
