Weekly Film Charts and Releases (10 October 2019)

Well consider me a clairvoyant as my call about Downton Abbey being number one for one last week was very wrong. On both counts. Joker, unsurprisingly, shot to number one in the UK but it didn’t come out in time for this weeks international charts. Although it did get to number one in the international weekend chart but puting in three charts is a little overkill so just do the weekly one to have a more overall view rather than just release weekends. In the end Abominable took the number one spot (for now) instead.

As a comparison, Just went up to number two in the UK but only got to number seven internationally. After those two points it’s the usual same films with the usual exchanges, like War and Good Boys being eighth in the UK and international charts respectively while Good Boys didn’t chart in the UK and War is only 22nd internationally.
