Universal’s ‘F9: The Fast Saga’ Speeds to No. 1 on U.K. Home Entertainment Chart

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s F9: The Fast Saga sped to No. 1 on the Official Film Chart in the U.K. for the weekly retail period ended Oct. 20. The actioner made the move thanks to its release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, which helped it outsell the chart’s top five in combined unit sales.

As a result, Disney’s Jungle Cruise was denied a second week at the top, dropping to No. 2. Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy finished No. 3, while catalog James Bond title Spectre finished No. 4, and Disney/Marvel’s Black Widow ended the week at No. 5. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s original Venom moved up five spots to No. 6.
