The film's soundtrack is also topping the midweek album charts ahead of Emeli Sande's 'Our Version of Events'.
'I Dreamed A Dream' last had a resurgence in popularity in 2009 when Scottish singer Susan Boyle performed it in her audition for the third series of 'Britain's Got Talent'. Her version made it to number 37 when it was released in the charts.
The famous song first appeared in the original Paris production of 'Les Miserables' from 1980 and was then called 'J'Avais Rêvé D'une Autre Vie' ('I had dreamed of another life').
