Just hours after its Jan. 30 retail debut, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Wonka topped the Official Film Chart as the top-selling movie in the U.K. at the retail level through Jan. 31.

Featuring Timothée Chalamet as chocolatier Willy Wonka, the musical adaptation outsold the Top 5 titles combined on the this week’s chart based on digital units.

Based on Roald Dahl’s novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, (Chalamet) arrives in a city renowned for its chocolate, with dreams of opening his own shop – but soon finds himself battling sabotage and a cartel of greedy chocolatiers threatened by his potential.

Also new this week at No. 2 is Disney’s Wish, starring Ariana DeBose and Chris Pine. Last week’s chart-topper, The Marvels (Disney) dropped to No. 3, while Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls Band Together finished No. 4, and the studio’s Oscar-nominated Oppenheimer finished No. 5.

Moving up two spots is Universal’s adaptation of video game Five Nights at Freddy’s at No. 6, and Warner’s Oscar-nominated Barbie at No. 7, closely followed by Lionsgate U.K.’s Hunger Games prequel The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes at No. 8 — down two spots from the previous week.

Oscar-nominated historic drama Killers of the Flower Moon (Paramount Home Entertainment) rose one spot to a new peak of No. 9, while Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s The Equalizer 3 rounded out the Top 10 after falling five spots.
