Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls World Tour finished atop the weekly Official Film Chart (through Aug. 12) for the fourth consecutive week, making the sequel the longest-running No. 1 of 2020 in the United Kingdom. Trolls World Tour has lasted longer at the top of the chart than Disney’s Frozen II and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, each at three weeks at the chart peak.
At No. 2, Disney’s Onward flies 16 places to return to its previous high position, just ahead of the week’s biggest new entry at No. 3, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The Lucasfilm title takes the place of its precursor, A New Hope, following a limited edition Steelbook release of the film.
Twentieth Century Home Entertainment’s Spies in Disguise moved up 23 places to its previous peak of No. 4; the animated film starring the voices of Tom Holland and Will Smith sees an internationally-renowned spy Lance Stirling (Smith) accidentally turned into a pigeon by a genius but socially awkward tech officer (Holland) — as the two work together to change Stirling back and save the world.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Jumanji: The Next Level jumped two spots to No. 5, as Frozen II drops to sixth and Paramount Home Entertainment’s Sonic the Hedgehog ended in seventh. Terminator: Dark Fate (20th Century Home Entertainment) is the highest climber of the week, skyrocketing 31 places to No. 8; 1917 (eOne) dropped four to ninth and Warner Home Video’s Joker ended the week at No. 10.
Elsewhere in the Top 20, Warner’s Deep Blue Sea 3 (No. 11) is up one, while Universal’s Four Kids and It — a children’s fantasy film based on a Jacqueline Wilson novel — enters the Official Film Chart for the first time at Number 15.
