Warner’s ‘Mortal Kombat’ Claims Second Week Atop U.K. Home Entertainment Chart

Martial arts fantasy Mortal Kombat claimed a second week at No. 1 on the U.K.’s Official Film Chart the week ended July 21. Outselling the competition on physical formats and performing strongly on digital, the Warner Home Video release comfortably holds onto its lead from the prior week, while the studio’s Godzilla vs. Kong held on at No. 2.

Meanwhile, the cinematic release of sequels sent two movies up the chart: 1996’s Space Jam climbs to a new peak at No. 3 thanks to the cinematic release of its long-awaited sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy — this week’s biggest title on digital downloads — while The Croods also saw an uplift following the launch of The Croods: A New Age, rising two spots to No. 4.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Warner) dropped to No. 5, and Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon rebounded to No. 6.

Promising Young Woman (Universal Pictures) made its Official Film Chart debut at No. 7 on digital downloads only. Starring Carey Mulligan as a woman traumatized by events from her past and dressed to kill, seeks revenge on those who wronged her and her loved ones.

Tom & Jerry dropped three spots to No. 8, landing just ahead of 2000 Guy Ritchie crime-comedy Snatch (Sony Pictures), which lands on the chart for the very first time at No. 9 following the release of a 20th Anniversary 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc re-release.

Finally, Academy Award-winning Nomadland (20th Century’s Searchlight Pictures) dropped three spots to No. 10.
