Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway hopped to No. 1 on the Official Film Chart in the United Kingdom for the retail week ended July 28.
The family film with CGI characters — featuring the voice of James Corden as the title character — claimed the top spot based on digital sales only, ahead of its release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Aug. 2. Meanwhile, a boxed set of both “Peter Rabbit” movies entered the chart at No. 2, while the first 2018 film appeared as a standalone release at No. 17.
A 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc re-release of Quentin Tarantino-written True Romance sent the 1993 romantic crime drama onto the chart at No. 4, and the previous week’s chart topper Mortal Kombat (2021) dropped to No. 5, followed by Godzilla vs. Kong (No. 6), The Croods (No. 7), Zack Snyder’s Justice League (No. 8), Promising Young Woman (No. 9) and Tom & Jerry (No. 10).
Warner again dominated among distributors with 50% of the week’s Top 10 selling titles.
