Ghostbusters: Afterlife claims second week as UK’s Number 1 film

The film holds off competition from Dune (2021) to take its second week at the top.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife holds on at Number 1 on the UK’s Official Film Chart for a second week.

The latest edition of the Ghostbusters franchise earns its second week at the top based on digital downloads only, and fights off tough all-new competition from recent sci-fi hit Dune (2021).

Dune debuts at Number 2 this week, also with digital download sales only. Part 1 of the latest adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel features an ensemble cast which includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, and Zendaya.

This means 2021’s biggest home entertainment release No Time To Die is pushed from its comfortable seat at Number 2 down to 3, landing ahead of Halloween Kills at Number 4, which scoops a brand new peak after rebounding nine places back into the Top 10.

Several strong entries have dropped this week; Venom: Let There Be Carnage is down two to Number 5, Disney’s Encanto – which made history on the Official Singles Chart last week – falls one to 6, Marvel’s latest, Eternals finishes at Number 7, and The Boss Baby 2: The Family Business bows at Number 8.

Elsewhere, action-thriller Nobody, starring Bob Odenkirk, rockets 20 places to land at Number 9 this week.

Finally, Hotel Transylvania 3 is the biggest climber of the week, zooming up 25 places to Number 10 following the release of its sequel, Hotel Transylvania: Hotel Transformania via Prime Video last week.
