‘Ant-Man and The Wasp,’ ‘Reprisal’ Debut in Top 10 on Redbox Disc Rental Chart

Two new releases debuted in the top 10 on the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, the week ended Oct. 21.

But demand for neither Walt Disney’s Ant-Man and The Wasp nor Lionsgate’s Reprisal was strong enough to dislodge Universal Pictures’ Skyscraper and Sony Pictures’ Hotel Transylvania 3 from the two top chart positions.

Skyscraper, an action film starring Dwayne Johnson as a former FBI agent out to rescue his family from a newly built skyscraper that has been taken over by criminals and set on fire, remained at No.1 for the second consecutive week.

And Hotel Transylvania 3, the third film in computer-animated comedy film franchise, remained at No. 2.

Ant-Man bowed at No. 3 on the kiosk chart, while Reprisal debuted at No. 4.

Both films were released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Oct. 16. Disney and Redbox are embroiled in litigation over Redbox’s sale of digital copy codes; the studio is the only one that won’t sell DVDs or Blu-ray Discs directly to Redbox, forcing the company to buy copies at retail.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox kiosk chart was Sony Pictures’ Sicario: Day of the Soldado.

Skyscraper and Hotel Transylvania 3 also held onto the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Neither new release appeared on the digital chart. Ant-Man and The Wasp is not available through Redbox On Demand.

Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom moved back up to No. 3 from No. 5 the prior week, bumping Sicario: Day of the Soldado down a notch to No. 4.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox On Demand digital chart was Warner’s Ocean’s 8, which moved up to No. 5 from No. 8 the previous week.
