Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway continued its hold atop the U.K,’s Official Film Chart through Aug. 18, holding off strong competition from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Batman: The Long Halloween — Part Two.
It was Sony’s lone win in a week that saw Warner again dominate retail movie sales across the pond, grabbing seven of the top 10 chart spots as its 2021 theatrical slate continues to resonate on packaged media and digital sellthrough.
Live-action Peter Rabbit 2 lead the chart for a fourth week, while the second installment of the animated Batman: The Long Halloween adaptation soared 36 spots to No. 2 following its release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s The Croods placed No. 3, with Warner’s Space Jam (No. 4) and Birds of Prey (No. 5) all hold firm. A collection of Peter Rabbit 1 & 2 continued to sell at No. 10.
The week’s highest new entry went to Lionsgate U.K.’s Spiral: From the Book of Saw, the horror film that serves as the ninth installment in the venerable “Saw” film series, at No. 12.
