The Lionsgate U.K. action-comedy Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard made its U.K. retail debut atop the weekly home entertainment sales chart for the period ended Sept. 15. The sequel to the 2017 buddy actioner The Hitman’s Bodyguard, co-starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, led all titles in packaged-media and digital unit sales. A combo of the two movies ranked No. 9 in sales.
Warner’s horror sequel The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It remained at No. 2 for a second week, while fantasy adventure newcomer Monster Hunter, starring Milla Jovivich, Tony Jaa and Ron Perlman, debuted at No. 3, driven by digital sales.
The former headliner, Paramount Home Entertainment sequel A Quiet Place Part II, dropped to No. 4. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Nobody was No. 5, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Peter Rabbit 2 finished No. 6 — both falling one place on the chart since last week.
Disney’s Cruella remained at No. 7, while Oscar winner The Father (Lionsgate) dropped five spots to No. 8. Finally, Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Warner) climbed three spots to return to No. 10.
