The feelgood drama raises its voice to dominate this week's chart.

Military Wives flies to Number 1 on this week’s Official Film Chart following its release on DVD and Blu-ray.

The heartwarming British comedy-drama starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Sharon Horgan and Jason Flemyng is up eight places on last week, joining its namesake as an Official Chart Number 1 – the original Military Wives Choir, led by Gareth Malone, earned the UK’s coveted Christmas Number 1 single with 'Wherever You Are' in 2011, and a Number 1 album on Mother’s Day 2012 with 'In My Dreams'.

Military Wives tells the story of a group of women whose partners are away serving in Afghanistan, who form a choir and find themselves the centre of a media phenomenon; along the way their unique friendships help to overcome their fears for their loved ones.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Elsewhere on the chart, Sonic The Hedgehog zooms back up to Number 2 just ahead of family favourite Frozen 2, as Birds of Prey (4), Dolittle (5) and last week’s Number 1, thriller The Invisible Man (6) all drop.


1917 is also down a place, while Academy Award-winning Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix takes a leap up eight places to return to the Top 10 at Number 8 – its highest placing since April.
