Packaged Media Keeps Warner’s ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Atop U.K. Home Entertainment Chart

Warner Bros. Pictures’ Godzilla vs. Kong remained atop the U.K.’s Official Film Chart for the week period ended July 7 — thanks to sales on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

Warner’s Mortal Kombat entered the chart at No. 2 spot due to the title’s built-in video game fanbase and the week’s biggest seller on digital downloads. The relatively unknown ensemble cast plays in a high-stakes battle for the universe, in which a young MMA fighter has to seek out planet Earth’s greatest champions to face off with their enemies in Outworld.

Warner holdover Zack Snyder’s Justice League ended the week at No. 3, as the studio’s 50-year-old catalog title, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory entered the chart for the first time at No. 4. The classic starring Gene Wilder flies into the chart thanks to a new 50th Anniversary reissue and brand new 4K restoration.

In all, Warner secured seven of the top 10-selling movies of the week.

Another new chart entry included Oscar-winning American drama Nomadland from Disney-owned Searchlight Pictures, which finished No. 5 following its release on disc. Tom & Jerry (Warner) dropped two spots to No. 6, while the previous week’s highest new entry, Batman: The Long Halloween — Part One (Warner) stumbled five spots to No. 7.

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon held at No. 8, while Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw climbed to No. 9, and Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984 dropped to No. 10.
