‘Batman’ Unseats ‘Spider-Man’ Atop Weekly Vudu Chart

Warner Bros.’ The Batman unseated Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: No Way Home to lead the chart of the 10 most-popular titles on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended April 24.

The DC Comics-based superhero actioner debuted for premium digital rental and purchase April 18. It stars Robert Pattinson (TenetThe Lighthouse) as the caped crusader, who after more than a year of stalking the streets and striking fear into the hearts of criminals, dives deep into the shadows of Gotham City. 

Rising to No. 2 from No. 6 on the chart was the canine buddy comedy Dog. Newly available for digital purchase, the MGM film follows an Army ranger (Channing Tatum, who also co-directs) who races down the Pacific Coast with an Army dog named Lulu to make it to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time. Along the way, they drive each other crazy.

After five weeks in the top spot, Spider-Man: No Way Home fell to No. 3 on the chart. The Marvel Studios film is available for digital purchase and rental. As the film begins, Spider-Man’s identity is revealed, bringing his superhero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about at risk, including M.J. (Zendaya). When he enlists Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in the world, releasing Spider-Man villains from other universes.

It follows the animal singers as they plan a new show and try to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star, Clay Callaway (voice of Bono), to join them.
