GOTTA GO FASTER: SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Speeds To Number 1 Following Its Release On Disc For Home Entertainment


17 June 2020

Gotta go fast! Sonic The Hedgehog speeds right to the top of the Official Film Chart following his arrival on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD as Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) teams up with his new human friend Tom (James Marsden) to defend earth from the nefarious Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).

The film debuted at Number 3 back in April when it was released on digital download early due to the COVID-19 crisis – just over a month after its cinematic release. This week it rockets up 36 places after its release on physical formats.

Another film which saw an early home release, Bloodshot re-enters the chart at Number 5.

 

 

Bloodshot, which sees Vin Diesel star as the Valiant Comics character of the same name, was made available to Download & Keep in the final week of March, only two weeks after its debut in cinemas, and originally debuted at Number 4.

Meanwhile, 1917 rebounds to Number 2, last week’s Number 1 Dolittle drops to Number 3, and Onward is down to 4. Previous Number 1 Bad Boys For Life is at 6, while Jumanji: The Next Level claims another big week on the chart at Number 7.

 

 

Little Women slides to 8, Frozen 2 hangs in there at Number 9 and the star-studded movie adaptation of Cats tumbles four spots to Number 10.

This week’s Official Film Chart features a sneak preview of Mark Ruffalo in legal thriller Dark Waters, which details the case against the chemical manufacturing corporation DuPont after they contaminated a town with unregulated chemicals. The title is available to Download and Keep from June 22.
