Meanwhile, The Greatest Showman has seen some competition from Bohemian Rhapsody and Frozen 2.
In terms of UK digital downloads for home release, both movie musicals have sold more than Hugh Jackman’s film.
Most recently Frozen 2 topped the Freddie Mercury biopic with 328,000 units sold in its first two weeks.
This makes the Disney film not just the most successful musical in this category but also in animated film.
The only movie ahead of Frozen 2 is Avengers Endgame, but it is the highest-grossing film of all-time after all.
Meanwhile, the animated musical is the 10th biggest film ever.
To date, it has made over $1.45 billion at the box office.
No doubt, Frozen 3 is only a matter of time now.
