Official Film Chart: Aquaman makes a splash as the week’s biggest superhero film

Jason Momoa takes gold in the battle of the heroes, while Will Ferrell and John C Reilly reunite in our exclusive clip.

Aquaman makes a splash at Number 1 in its first week on the Official Film Chart, outselling the rest of the Top 5 combined.

Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) discovers he’s the half-Atlantean heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, becoming Aquaman to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land, and prove his worth as the future king. Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe also star.

It pushes last week’s chart-topper Ralph Breaks The Internet to Number 2; Bohemian Rhapsody also falls one place, landing at Number 3.

Meanwhile, fellow superhero film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hangs on to Number 4 for a second week on digital downloads only. Could the hero swing to the Number 1 spot when it releases on disc on April 22.

A second new entry, the Peter Jackson-produced dystopian steampunk action film Mortal Engines, rolls in at Number 6. 

This week’s Official Film Chart features an exclusive clip of Will Ferrell and John C Reilly discussing their reunion in Holmes & Watson. The adventure-comedy will be available to download & keep from April 20.
