Jim Carrey's 'The Grinch' returns to the Official Film Chart Top 10

Grinch-fever has gripped the Official Film Chart as a festive favourite has stolen its way back into the top ten.

Jim Carrey’s 2000 film How the Grinch Stole Christmas has re-entered the chart at number 5, the week Benedict Cumberbatch’s The Grinch was released in cinemas.

Avengers: Infinity War has also returned to the Top 10, placing at number nine while new entries The Incredibles 2 and Skyscraper took the number two and three spots, respectively, on digital downloads alone.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom maintained the top spot for a second week thanks to both digital and discs sales of JA Bayona’s dinosaur sequel.
