The results are already quite eye-opening, and we'll make it our business to keep an eye on the weekly updates from now on. They're set to be published every Wednesday, and will deliver a weekly Top 40.

1. The Greatest Showman

5. Peter Rabbit

As you can see, Marvel has done very well when it comes to home releases in 2018, and there's everything to play for on the run up to Christmas. It's not surprising to see family fare in there, of course, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle is perhaps a bit of a surprise. Matthew Vaughn's follow up to 2014's Kingsman: The Secret Service was received with mixed reviews earlier in the year, but it made almost $411 million off a $104 million budget, so combined with its home release success, we can start to get a better idea of how a third film in the franchise has cracked along so quickly.

All the films languishing behind Hugh Jackman's audience-winning loose musical biopic of P.T. Barnum's success story will have to do very well to knock it off the 2018 charts, though - back in July, it had already broken the UK record for the most digital copies sold, with 1.4 million units shifted overall, 33% of those in digital format.

This week, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is sitting atop the Top 40, but it still has some stiff competition from The Greatest Showman 43 weeks after its release.

'The Greatest Showman' Sequel Gets Hugh Jackman's Support, But He Admits It Might Not Be Possible.
Hugh Jackman has said he’d be up for making a sequel to ‘The Greatest Showman’, but admitted it might be a little tricky to get the wheels in motion. Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Hugh remarked that if “a genuine opportunity” were to come up, he’d be happy to “get the top hat back out” to play circus leader P.T. Barnum again. However, he noted that due to changes in the film industry, the chances of it happening anytime soon were probably slim. © Getty (Photo by Al Pereira/WireImage) “We have a situation in the business where the company that did it [20th Century Fox] has been sold to Disney,” he said. “So there are a lot of spinning plates right now.
