Venom: Let There Be Carnage takes its place atop the Official Film Chart following its release on disc.

The Marvel sequel knocks last week’s chart-topper No Time To Die down to Number 2, and also sees a second placing at Number 5, as part of a boxset also containing its precursor Venom (2018).

Meanwhile, Encanto – Disney’s new animated musical hit – rises one place to reach a new peak of Number 3, while the 2004 Tobey Maguire-starring Spider-Man 2 swoops up nine places to Number 4, its first entrance into the Top 10.

DC’s The Suicide Squad falls three places to Number 6, while Spider-Man: Far From Home rises one to 7 and Paw Patrol: The Movie lands at 8.

Finally, The Last Duel drops four places to round off the countdown at Number 10.
