Warner’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League went straight to No. 1 on the U.K.’s Official Film Chart of home entertainment releases through April 28 — driven by digital downloads only access.
The new release produced 9,000 unit sales ahead of its closest competition, fellow DCEU film and former six-week chart topper Wonder Woman 1984, at No. 2. Originally released in March on Sky Cinema, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is an extended cut of 2017 film Justice League and clocks in at a running time of four hours.
Its release followed a long-running fan campaign to release the ‘Snyder Cut’ of Justice League after Joss Whedon took over directing the film’s theatrical version when Snyder departed following a family bereavement.
Meanwhile, Nicolas Cage comedy-horror Willy’s Wonderland (Signature Entertainment) debuted at No. 3. Cage stars as a janitor tricked into working at a condemned family fun amusement park, where he’s forced into a fight for survival against the center’s possessed animatronic mascots.
Warner’s Oscar-winner Joker landed at No. 4; The Greatest Showman (20th Century Home Entertainment) jumped seven spots to No. 5;and Disney/Pixar’s two-time Oscar winner Soul dropped four spots to No. 6. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (Warner) fell to No. 7, while Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Let Him Go rose one spot to No. 8 in its second week of retail release.
At No. 9, cult slasher collection Urban Legend Trilogy (88 Films) made its debut following the release of a limited-edition Blu-ray Disc boxed set of Urban Legend, Urban Legends: Final Cut and Urban Legends: Bloody Mary. Finally, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man: Far From Home landed at No. 10.
