Weekly Film Charts and Releases (3 October 2019)

Well Downton has stayed at number one in the UK and has clawed it’s way to number one internationally. It’s stayed off ‘It: Part 2’, ‘Ad Astra’ and ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ so it seems like the film of the moment is a period drama continuing from a TV series. How says it’s not award season already?

Anyway, here’s the UK Weekend Box Office,
