Warner Bros.’ Zack Snyder’s Justice League held its grip atop the U.K.’s Official Film Chart in home entertainment for a second period ending May 5 — driven by digital downloads. The title held off several other Warner/DC movies, including Wonder Woman 1984 (No. 2), 2016’s prequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (No. 3) and Oscar winner Joker (No. 5).
The week’s highest new entry at No. 4 was British comedy Blithe Spirit, starring Judi Dench, Dan Stevens, Leslie Mann and Judi Dench. A writer suffering from writer’s block attends a séance, but the medium accidentally summons the spirit of his first wife — leading to an increasingly complex love triangle with his current wife.
At No. 6 was two-time Oscar winner Judas and the Black Messiah, starring LaKeith Stanfield and featuring an Oscar-winning performance from Daniel Kaluuya for his portrayal of Fred Hampton, the chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party.
Japanese classic cult shocker Battle Royale debuted at No. 7 following the release of a new limited-edition 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc boxed set. The Greatest Showman dropped to No. 8, while Sony Pictures’ perennial charter Jumanji: The Next Level climbed 21 spots back to No. 9, and Universal’s Let Him Go rounded out the chart.
