‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Holds Off ‘Dune’ to Remain Atop U.K. Home Entertainment Chart

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife continued to hold the No. 1 spot on the U.K.’s Official Film Chart the week ended Jan. 26.

The latest edition of the “Ghostbusters” franchise earned the title a second week at the top of the home entertainment sales chart based on digital downloads only and held off the home entertainment debut of Warner Bros. Pictures’ sci-fi reboot Dune.

Dune sales also include digital download sales only. The latest adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel features an ensemble cast including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin and Zendaya.

That pushed 2021’s biggest home entertainment release, MGM’s No Time to Die (distributed by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment in the U.K), from No. 2 down to No. 3, landing ahead of Universal’s Halloween Kills at No. 4, which scoops a new peak after rebounding nine spots back into the top 10.

Elsewhere, Universal action-thriller Nobody, starring Bob Odenkirk, rocketed up 20 spots to No. 9. Finally, Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 3 zoomed up 25 spots to No. 10 following the release of its sequel Hotel Transylvania: Transformania via Amazon Prime Video last week.
