Warner Bros. finished an impressive week in U.K. home entertainment, securing 50% of the top 10 selling titles for the week ended May 19.
The studio’s The Little Things, starring Denzel Washington, Jared Leto and Rami Malek, made a No. 1 debut on the Official Film Chart, leading the list of the U.K.’s most popular films as the week’s biggest release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
In the film, deputy sheriff Joe Deacon (Washington) is sent to Los Angeles for a quick evidence-gathering assignment — but as he teams up with detective Jim Baxter (Malek) to help solve a serial killer case in the city, disturbing secrets from his past are unearthed that could threaten more than the case.
Wonder Woman 1984 held on for another week at No. 2, as three-week chart topper Zack Snyder’s Justice League dropped to No. 3. DC animated adventure Justice Society: World War II launched at No. 4, knocking Spider-Man: Far From Home down one spot to No. 5.
Crime thriller The Virtuoso, starring recent Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins, debuted at No. 6, landing just ahead of soccer star Eric Cantona’s produced, Man United documentary, The United Way, at No. 7. Venom returned to the Official Film Chart at No. 8, and Tenet finished at No. 9.
Finally, 2018 comedy adventure Peter Rabbit jumped back to No. 10, thanks to consumers catching up with the character ahead of the release of sequel Peter Rabbit 2, which is in U.K. cinemas now.
