‘Barbie’ Tops Redbox Disc Rental Chart for Sixth Week

‘Barbie’ Tops Redbox Disc Rental Chart for Sixth Week

Warner’s Barbie remained No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended Nov. 26.

The blockbuster comedy based on the iconic doll brand was the top box office title of the year with more than $636 million domestically and has now topped the rental chart six consecutive weeks.

However, it should be noted that Barbie‘s rental run at No. 1 may have less to do with the popularity of the film and more to do with Redbox, the nation’s top rental outlet, not restocking its kiosks with the big new titles released in the past month such as Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One, Gran Turismo, The Equalizer 3 and Oppenheimer.

The No. 2 title on the disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s thousands of red kiosks, was Universal’s Strays. The raunchy comedy follows a pack of foul-mouthed dogs as one of them seeks to return home to avenge his owner abandoning him.

The No. 3 disc rental was Universal’s Fast X, followed at No. 4 by Universal’s 2018 animated version of The Grinch, and at No. 5 by Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 4.

The top title on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital VOD and sellthrough transactions, was Vertical’s The Retirement Plan, an actioner starring Nicolas Cage as a beach bum with a mysterious past who comes out of retirement to save his daughter and granddaughter from a crime boss.

The No. 2 digital title was Paramount’s Fatman, starring Mel Gibson as a violent action-oriented Santa.

No. 3 was Vertical’s After Everything, the fifth chapter in the soapy “After” franchise about a pair of young lovers.

The No. 4 digital title was Cineverse’s On Fire, a thriller about an ordinary man (Peter Facinelli) who finds his world is suddenly torn apart as devastating wildfires rip through the surrounding countryside and he must rescue his son and pregnant wife.

No. 5 was Angel Studios’ surprise summer hit Sound of Freedom, from Premiere Digital Services. The film stars Jim Caviezel as a former U.S. federal agent who dedicates his life to freeing children from traffickers.
