In a new-release-starved home entertainment market, consumers covet fresh content. Warner’s release of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi espionage thriller Tenet turned the U.K. weekly Official Film Chart on its head through Dec. 23. The title outsold the other top-five titles combined with nearly 150,000 packaged-media/digital unit sales. The title also ended the ride of Warner’s Elf (No. 5) atop the charts at three weeks.
Warner’s The Witches entered the chart at No. 2, with the remake starring Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci. Jim Carey’s The Grinch (2000) remained No. 3, followed by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Love Actually at No. 4.
Universal’s Last Christmas (No. 6), 20th Century’s Home Alone (No. 7), Warner’s The Polar Express (No. 8), and Jim Henson Video’s The Muppet Christmas Carol (No. 9) rounded out the Top 10, with the 2018 animated version of The Grinch moving up one spot to No. 10.
