Hello there, welcome back to this week’s Charts and That, your one stop shop for all things chart-wise. This week, Vampyr is topping the physical sale charts with games, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is sitting pretty at the box office and Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris are still at number one for the 9th week in a row. Let’s count them down.

We’ll get music out of the way first this time. It’s your usual mix of artists, from Drake at No.4 with Nice for What, Anne-Marie in third, Jess Glynne second then the current queen of pop Dua Lipa at the top. Here’s the list.

  1. One Kiss ­– Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa
  2. I’ll Be There – Jess Glynne
  3. 2002 – Anne-Marie
  4. Nice for What – Drake
  5. No Tears Left to Cry – Ariana Grande
  6. Solo – Clean Bandit ft Demi Lovato
  7. Better Now – Post Malone
  8. Shotgun – George Ezra
  9. Flames – David Guetta ft Sia
  10. Yikes – Kanye West

Up next we’re checking out games, where action-RPG Vampyr is sitting atop the pile. While it’s been met with middling reviews, this Victorian-era vampire story looks gritty and downright gloomy. Check out Jim Sterling’s video for a look at the combat at game features. After that we have FIFA, God of War and Detroit: Become Human. Take a look.

  1. Vampyr
  2. FIFA 18
  3. God of War
  4. Detroit: Become Human
  5. Far Cry 5
  6. Fallout 4
  7. State of Decay 2
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  9. Grand Theft Auto V
  10. Overwatch: GOTY Edition

Lastly, we have movies, where the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World is doing swimmingly. Fallen Kingdom has raked in a whopping £14m on opening weekend, just in the UK. Reviews have been mixed for the action-packed dinosaur romp but take a look at what our own resident film critic had to say here. Now for the list:

  1. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  2. Solo: A Star Wars Story
  3. Deadpool 2
  4. Book Club
  5. Avengers: Infinity War
  6. Sherlock Gnomes
  7. Blade Runner: The Final Cut
  8. Show Dogs
  9. Kaala
  10. McQueen

And that’s all we have time for this week. Tune in next time for more Charts and That.

Y’know whenever I type that I feel like Guy Fieri at the end of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. When he say’s ‘We’ll see you next time’. Anyone else getting that vibe?
