Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn makes a marvellous return to the Official Film Chart, as it claims the Number 1 spot for the first time following its release on disc formats.
Originally peaking at Number 3 on its digital download release in April, the film stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and chronicles the character’s adventures after splitting up with the Joker.
Harley teams up with superheroes Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and tough cop Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) to save a young girl being targeted by nefarious crime lord Roman Sionis/The Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).
Dolittle rebounds one place to Number 2, just ahead of 1917 at Number 3. The Personal History of David Copperfield enters the Top 10 for the first time, flying 24 places to Number 4. Set in the 1840s, this modernistic adaptation of Charles Dickens’ semi-autobiographical classic was written & directed by Armando Ianucci and stars Dev Patel as the eponymous character.
Last week’s Number 1 Sonic the Hedgehog drops to Number 5, edging ahead of Bad Boys for Life which hangs on to Number 6 for another week. Animated adventure Onward is down three to Number 7 as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker returns to the Top 10 at Number 8.
The Call of the Wild is back in the chart at Number 9 following its release on disc, and finally Jumanji: The Next Level holds on to spend its twelfth consecutive week in the Top 10, falling three to Number 10.
