Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore finished No. 1 in its debut on the Official Film Chart, the U.K. weekly home entertainment retail sales chart, through July 20.
The third installment of the “Fantastic Beasts” movie franchise, which once again stars Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law, nabbed the pole position based on sales of digital downloads only, finishing just ahead of Lionsgate’s The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, which debuted at No. 2.
The comedy stars Nicholas Cage as a fictionalized version of himself who channels his iconic characters from over the years while caught between a dangerous superfan and a CIA agent.
Meanwhile, Warner’s The Batman (No. 3) and Disney/Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (No. 4) maintained their previous-week positions, and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s historical action-adventure The Northman rose one spot to No. 5.
The previous week’s No. 1, The Lost City (Paramount Home Entertainment), tumbled to No. 6, and the Colin Firth-starring Operation Mincemeat (Warner) fell to No. 7 as both movies finished just ahead of Morbius (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) at No. 8.
Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home returned to the top 10 at No. 9 after climbing two spots, while rounding out the top 10 for another week: Universal’s animated musical Sing 2.
