Charts and That

It’s a Tuesday? What? I thought this was on Mondays? Well, we decided to switch it up, given that the UK box office numbers are released on a Tuesday. So here you go.

We’ll start with movies this week.

Blade Runner 2049 is leading the charge this week, seeing the return of Harrison Ford and introducing Ryan Gosling to the dystopian world of intrigue and science-fiction. While it hasn’t made a massive amount of money, it’s cool to see such an interest in the film, what with the positive reviews and such. Not to mention the interview they did with ITV. Following BR 2049 we have Kingsman and IT.

  1. Blade Runner 2049 – £6,071,625
  2. Kingsman: The Golden Circle – £2,112,966
  3. IT – £807,500
  4. The Mountain Between Us – £777,646
  5. Victoria and Abdul – £467,042
  6. Goodbye Christopher Robin – £397,441
  7. Event Cinema: Norma – Met Opera 2017 – £224,794
  8. Flatliners – £195,318
  9. Home Again – £174,798
  10. The Emoji Movie – £141,250

Now for some music. Wait, you hear that? Oh, you don’t? That’s because Taylor Swift has moved out of the top ten. We’re overjoyed. Down nine places from last week, Swift has been overtaken by a few newcomers to the list. Let’s take a look.

  1. Rockstar – Post Malone Ft. 21 Savage
  2. Too Good at Goodbyes – Sam Smith
  3. Havana – Camila Cabello Ft. Young Thug
  4. New Rules – Dua Lipa
  5. Lonely Together – Avicii Ft. Rita Ora
  6. Reggaeton Lento (Remix) – CNCO & Little Mix
  7. Dusk till Dawn – Zayn Ft. Sia
  8. What About Us – Pink
  9. 1-800-273-8255 – Logic/Alessia/Khalid
  10. Bestie – Yungen Ft. Yxng Bane

Now games. Feel that in the air? It’s autumn. The releases are coming. Remember these charts, for this, is probably the last time you’ll see three sports games at the top at once. Yes, Destiny 2 is hanging on at number four, with FIFA 18, Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon on top. Which I think is cheating.

  1. FIFA 18
  2. Forza Motorsport 7
  3. Forza Horizon 3
  4. Destiny 2
  5. Grand Theft Auto V
  6. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
  7. The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  9. NBA 2k18
  10. Lego Worlds

And that’s us done for this week. Until next time!
