STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Tops the UK Home Entertainment Chart for a Third Week Running

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The latest Star Wars movie refuses to be 'force'-d off the top spot.


It’s a third week at the top for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as it continues to dominate the UK’s screens. More than doubling the sales of its closest competition, the latest Star Wars chapter easily holds on to its lead as the UK’s biggest film of the week as families and flatmates alike continue to enjoy films at home during lockdown.


jojo rabbit

The highest new entry of the week is Taika Waititi’s Oscar winning comedy Jojo Rabbit, at Number 2 on digital downloads only.  A young boy (Roman Griffin Davis) who’s a member of the Hitler Youth finds out his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their home – and must confront his beliefs and blind nationalism aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Waititi).


birds of prey

Birds of Prey holds on at Number 3, just ahead of our second new entry The Gentlemen at 4. Guy Ritchie returns to his gangster roots as writer and director of this action-comedy starring Matthew McConaughey. An American expat tries to sell off his profitable drug empire in London, and finds himself fighting blackmail and bribery as those in the know try to take it from under him.


jumanji the next level

Jumanji: The Next Level (5), Spies in Disguise (6), Frozen 2 (7) and Sonic The Hedgehog (8) each drop a few places. Finally, Elton John biopic Rocketman (10) climbs three to return to the Top 10.
