X-Men: Dark Phoenix rises to the top spot on this week’s Official Film Chart.

The superhero finale stars Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and the titular Dark Phoenix. When a mission goes wrong, the much-loved Jean Grey is exposed to a dark and ancient power which begins to corrupt her – and the X-Men must choose between saving their friend, or saving the world. X-Men: Dark Phoenix rises two places to secure chart victory this week.

They’re back to protect against the worst scum of the universe, and now the digital release of latest MIB adventure, Men in Black: International, infiltrates the ranks at Number 5, securing the highest new entry and most downloaded film of the week in the UK. Its physical release is due 21 October.
