‘The Secret Garden’ Blossoms on U.K. Home Entertainment Chart

The Secret Garden finished No. 1 on the U.K. weekly Official Film Chart through Feb. 24 following its release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The 2020 adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic novel stars Colin Firth and Julie Walters, as well as emerging actress Dixie Violet Egerickx in the lead role of Mary Lennox.

The Universal Pictures Home Entertainment release knocked off the previous week’s chart-topper, 2016 animated musical Sing, which fell to No. 3, while Warner’s Roald Dahl’s The Witches held on at No. 2. Also holding firm were Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man: Far From Home (No. 4) and Universal’s Despicable Me 3 (No. 5).

Jumanji: The Next Level (No. 6) and Trolls World Tour (No. 7) both dropped one spot to land just ahead of Sonic the Hedgehog, which rocketed up 14 spots to No. 8, returning to the Top 10 for the first time since October.

Sci-fi actioner Anti-Life (known as Breach in the U.S.) claimed the chart’s highest new entry at No. 9. Bruce Willis stars as a senior mechanic on an interstellar ark facing a brand-new threat: a shape-shifting alien force intent on slaughtering what remains of humanity. Finally, former No. 1 The Greatest Showman dropped seven spots to No. 10.
