‘The New Mutants’ Rises to No. 1 on U.K. Official Film Chart

Disney/20th Century Studios’ The New Mutants rose to the top spot on the U.K.’s Official Film Chart through Jan. 13 following the film’s release on DVD and Blu-ray in the world’s No. 2 home entertainment market.

Counting Anya Taylor-Joy, of the acclaimed Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit,” “Game Of Thrones'” Maisie Williams, and “Stranger Things”’ Charlie Heaton among its cast, the superhero horror’s success this week means previous week’s chart topper Tenet (Warner) is pushed to second place despite a strong retail sales.

Brand new at No. 3 is the long-awaited sequel Bill & Ted Face the Music. Starring Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves as the eponymous characters, the pair reunite for new antics in the present day —and beyond. The now-middle aged dads of teenage girls are on their biggest adventure yet, still trying to crank out a hit song and save the world.
