Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical ended its fourth straight week at No. 1 on the Official Film Chart as the U.K.’s top-selling movie for the week ended March 8. The movie more than doubled the sales of its closest competition, with 60% of its sales coming from digital transactions, or electronic sellthrough (EST).
At No. 2 for a third week is Disney/Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which edged out the week’s highest new entry, British drama Living, distributed by Lionsgate U.K., at No. 3. The movie stars Bill Nighy as a bureaucrat in 1950s London who, after receiving a fatal diagnosis, decides to live his life more fully.
Paramount Home Entertainment’s Top Gun: Maverick (No. 4) and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Elvis (No. 5) both finished ahead of the chart’s second new entry, 1995 crime drama Casino (re-released across digital sellthrough by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment) at No. 6, starring Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci, among others.
Chart mainstays Bullet Train (Sony), Black Adam (Warner) and Jurassic World Dominion (Universal) ended the week at No. 7, No. 8 and No. 9, respectively. Finally, Warner’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Philosopher’s Stone in the U.K.) returned to the top 10 after rebounding 3 spots.
