Wonka scores fourth week at Number 1 on the Official Film Chart

Still of Timothee Chalamet in Wonka

Wonka floats back up to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart, earning a fourth non-consecutive week at the top.

Following its release on disc, family favourite Wonka jumps three places and sells in excess of 51,000 sales over the last seven days to regain its status as the UK’s Number 1 film.

Our highest new entry of the week, Migration, lands straight in at Number 2. Starring Kumail Nanjini and Elizabeth Banks alongside a star-studded supporting cast, this animated adventure sees a family of ducks persuade their homebody father to leave their comfy spot on a New England pond and fly south to Jamaica for winter.

Dune lifts two places to Number 3 this week, while last week’s chart-topper Anyone But You drops to Number 4. Now four-time Oscar-winner Poor Things – including one for Emma Stone’s Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role – drops two places to Number 5, but could it see an uplift in the post-Oscars chart next week?

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes finishes the week at Number 6, while Oppenheimer lands one place down on last week at Number 7.

Former Number 1 Barbie jumps five places this week (8) landing just ahead of second new entry, Napoleon (9). Joaquin Phoenix stars as Napoleon Bonaparte in this historic biopic of the life of the French emperor.

Rounding out the Top 10 this week is musical biopic Elvis (10) which lifts six places to finish only a few sales ahead of Priscilla (11) – telling the story of The King’s wife and life partner – which lifts four to a new peak.
