THE LOST CITY Scores Second Week at Number 1 on the UK Home Video Chart

the lost city
The Lost City holds on to its place at Number 1 on digital downloads only.

Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum’s rom-com adventure denies Operation Mincemeat a Number 1 position, though the latter - which stars Colin Firth and Matthew MacFadyen as WWII intelligence officers who have to outwit German forces - flies six places to Number 2 following its release on disc.

the batman

The Batman holds on to its place at Number 3, finishing ahead of this week’s highest new entry Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness at Number 4. The sequel to Doctor Strange and currently available on digital downloads only, this is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe to be made available for home entertainment (with Thor: Love and Thunder the most recent release in cinemas.)

the bad guys

The Bad Guys rises to Number 5, while our second brand new entry of the week, The Northman, debuts at Number 6. Action-adventure The Northman stars Alexander Skarsgård as a young Viking prince who heads on a quest to avenge his father’s murder.


Morbius drops five places to Number 7, while the original Top Gun holds tight in the Top 10 at Number 8, as does Sonic the Hedgehog 2 at Number 9. Finally, Sing 2 finishes the week at Number 10.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is the biggest film of 2022 so far in the UK.

According to new data from the Official Charts Company and British Association for Screen Entertainment (BASE) the latest edition of the Tom Holland-starring Marvel franchise has sold over 780,000 copies since it was released in March this year; more than doubling the sales of the film in second place with audience’s keen to witness the multiverse epic with characters from past and present from all across the “Spider-Verse” returning.

At Number two in the year-to-date chart is the 2021 version of Dune which was released for home entertainment in January, while Ghostbusters sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife comes in at Number 3, and is the second-biggest release on digital downloads of the year so far.

Daniel Craig’s final performance as James Bond in No Time To Die lands at Number 4 – the second-biggest physical release of the year – while animated musical favourite Sing 2 rounds off the Top 5 at Number 5.

Recent releases include The Batman, which makes an impressive appearance at Number 6 despite only being released in May. Disney’s Encanto – which took over the Official Singles Chart at the start of the year when 'We Don’t Talk About Bruno' spent seven weeks at Number 1 – earns a well-deserved place at Number 8, just ahead of action/adventure Uncharted (9) and The Matrix’s fourth instalment, The Matrix Resurrections (10).

Outside the Top 10, the original Top Gun from 1986 starts at Number 11 following the release of its sequel, Top Gun: Maverick in cinemas earlier in the year; the film broke records in May when it became the oldest film to ever top the Official Film Chart.

Another recent release, videogame sequel Sonic The Hedgehog 2, scores a Number 14 placing despite having not yet been released on physical formats at the end of the 6-month data period, with it proving very popular in the UK on digital downloads only. Additionally, Morbius lands at Number 32 in the list, only having been released for home viewing in mid-June.
