What a week for Rose Glass – her directorial feature debut Saint Maud is sitting at the top of the UK home chart following a DVD and Blu-ray release last week AND she won Breakthrough Director at this year’s Odyssey Awards last night. Saint Maud debuting at number one comes as no surprise with such a buzz surrounding the film – that, and the very little competition it has in terms of new home releases lately.
The only other new film making its debut in the Top 10 this week is Gerard Johnson’s Muscle, starring Craig Fairbrass, Polly Maberly, and Lorraine Burroughs.
Bill & Ted‘s latest time-traveling adventure moves down to number two after enjoying the number one spot for just one week and in a surprise re-entry, Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther returns to claim the third spot. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet drops two places but manages to remain in the top five this week as it clinches 4th, with The Witches in 5th. Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey is the only film to move up a place this week as it moves up to 7th.
There are two more re-entries into the Top 10 this week as The Greatest Showman and 1917 make an unexpected return. 1917 picked up two Odyssey Awards last night at our awards show for Best Cinematography (Sir Roger Deakins) and Best Stunt Work (Ben Cooke).
Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor was released earlier this week – and I anticipate it could crack the charts next week, unless Cats and Dogs 3: Paws Unite!, which has a DVD release, has anything to say about it…
