Black Panther has risen eight places to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart as audiences re-visit Chadwick Boseman’s memorable lead performance as T’Challa, in the 2018 MCU film.
The film – which was released before the Official Film Chart’s inception – first entered the Top 10 last week at Number 9 following a flurry of sales after the news was announced, and lifts this week to Number 1 as fans continue to look back at the career of the esteemed late actor, who died on August 28.
Sonic the Hedgehog (2), Trolls World Tour (3), 1917 (4) and Joker (5) hold tight onto their positions, as Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker jumps four places to Number 6.
Birds of Prey (7) and Dolittle (8) both drop one place, as Jumanji: The Next Level rises three to Number 9 and Bad Boys For Life rounds off the Top 10 after climbing six places.
Further notable Top 20 entries include 2001: A Space Odyssey at Number 13, 1985 classic The Goonies at Number 16 following the release of a new SteelBook edition, and a huge uplift for Avengers: Endgame, which flies 16 places to Number 18.
