Charts and That

9 January 2018

By Alex Khalil

Hello there and welcome back to the latest Charts and That, your home for lists of stuff that’s popular and such. We’re also rather vague.

First up, films! Looks like the UK followed suit when it comes to Jumanji. The blockbuster recently took over The Last Jedi in the US and it seems to have done the same in the UK. It has already made a staggering £26,272,798 at the UK box office alone and at least four times that globally. Not bad.

  1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  2. The Last Jedi
  3. The Greatest Showman
  4. Molly’s Game
  5. Pitch Perfect 3
  6. All the Money in the World
  7. Paddington 2
  8. Ferdinand
  9. Hostiles
  10. Daddy’s Home 2

Now music! Thankfully, things have returned to normal, after the usual slog of Christmas songs taking over. Well, kiss goodbye to Mariah Carey and welcome in the new year with these tracks. Man’s Not Hot is 3rd. Life is good.

  1. Perfect – Ed Sheeran
  2. River – Eminem ft. Ed Sheeran
  3. Man’s Not Hot – Big Shaq
  4. Anywhere – Rita Ora
  5. Havana – Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug
  6. I Miss You – Clean Bandit ft. Julia Michaels
  7. 17 – MK
  8. Barking – Ramz
  9. Wolves – Selena Gomez and Marshmello
  10. Let You Down – NF

Last but not least, games and such. FIFA grips the top spot from the prying hands of Call of Duty WW2 and GTA V. Battlefront 2 dips to fifth, its lowest point since launch a few months ago. PUBG is creeping up from behind too, at 7th, given its recent release into the wide world of physical sales. We really should switch to digital sales at some point. That’s next month Alex’s problem.

  1. FIFA 18
  2. Call of Duty WW2
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Assassins Creed Origins
  5. Star Wars Battlefront 2
  6. The Sims 4
  7. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  8. Super Mario Odyssey
  9. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
  10. Forza Motorsport 7

And there we have it. Tune in next time for more Charts and That.
