Bohemian Rhapsody is the overall champion however, thanks also to the fact it racked up 388,600 digital sales in its first four weeks. In total, the chart-topper has sold 853,000 copies across DVD, Blu-ray, 4K UHD and digital downloads in its first four weeks, compared to The Greatest Showman which sold 845,500 in the equivalent four-week period.

Widows enters the Top 10 for the first time this week on downloads alone, reaching Number 9 after climbing 8 places. Directed by Steve McQueen and adapted from Lynda La Plante’s bestseller, the film follows a group of women who undertake a heist following the deaths of their criminal husbands. Finally, Avengers: Infinity War continues to climb following the theatrical release of Captain Marvel, rounding off the chart at Number 10. This week’s Official Film Chart online show features an exciting clip of Robin Hood, available to download and keep from March 25. The 2018 film stars Taron Egerton as the folklore hero with a strong supporting cast including Jamie Foxx as Little John and Ben Mendelsohn as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
The latest iteration of Robin Hood, released by Lionsgate, has turned out to be 2018’s biggest bomb yet, having made only $14 million (£10.9) in a five-day opening against a budget of just under $100 (£128.3) million.
The legend of Robin Hood has been rebooted, reimagined, remade and revamped in countless ways, and over hundreds of years since it first entered communal folklore in the 13th century.
The British filmmaker believes Robin Hood is the inspiring figure the world needs right now.
"There was a bit of racial tension between Robin and John early on that I think was lost."
