Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls World Tour remained atop The Official Film Chart in the United Kingdom for the week ending Aug. 26. The animated title’s stint at No. 1 for the sixth consecutive week is the longest-reigning movie chart topper since the Film Chart’s inception in 2018.
Trolls World Tour has held the top spot longer than Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame and musical sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which held the top spot for four consecutive weeks. This year, Frozen II and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker claimed the No. 1 position for three consecutive weeks.
To date, Trolls World Tour has generated 195,000 sales on digital and disc with 59% of its total made up of digital downloads.
Meanwhile, eOne’s 1917 climbed back up to No. 2, Paramount Home Entertainment’s Sonic the Hedgehog rose three places to No. 7 and Universal’s Dolittle jumped five spots to fourth.
Downtown Abbey: The Motion Picture (Universal) jumped 10 places to No. 5 — its first stint in the top five since March — while Warner’s Joker moved up six spots to sixth, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn ascended seven places in Birds of Prey at No. 7.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Jumanji: The Next Level held steady at eighth, as Disney’s Onward fell six spots to ninth, with Frozen II in 10th.
