Joker takes back Number 1 on the Official Film Chart

This week's Official Film Chart features a sneak preview of Last Christmas starring Emilia Clarke, and a brand new entry from Stephen King sequel Doctor Strange

Joker returns to the top of the Official Film Chart this week, claiming its third total week at Number 1.

It was close at the top however, as the Oscar-winning flick leads by just 900 sales to knock last week’s chart-topper Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to Number 2.

Zombieland: Double Tap jumps four places to Number 3 following its release on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD; Terminator: Dark Fate lands at Number 4 and is the week’s biggest digital download; Downton Abbey holds its place at 5.

Doctor Sleep, the long-awaited sequel to 1980 Stephen King adaptation The Shining, is this week’s highest new entry, at Number 6 on digital downloads only.
Set several decades after the original, a grown-up Daniel Torrance (Ewan McGregor) works to protect a young girl - with similar powers to his own - from a cult known for preying on children with supernatural powers.

This week’s Official Film Chart online show features a sneak peek at Last Christmas starring Emilia Clarke and based on the music of George Michael and Wham!, available to Download & Keep from March 8.
