‘Black Adam’ Again Takes Top Spot on Weekly Vudu Chart
December 5, 2022
Warner Bros.’ superhero film Black Adam again led the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Dec. 4.
The film, based on DC Comics characters, became available for premium digital purchase and rental Nov. 22 and debuted at No. 1 the previous week. In the actioner, nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods — and imprisoned just as quickly — Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
Also repeating, in the No. 2 spot, was Sony Pictures’ historical drama The Woman King, starring Viola Davis. The film, available for digital purchase Nov. 22, is inspired by true events that took place in the kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful states of Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Rising from No. 6 to No. 3 on the chart was the horror film Smile, which is available for digital purchase and newly available for digital rental. The Paramount hit stars Sosie Bacon as a therapist who begins to experience an overwhelming terror that takes over her life after witnessing a patient’s bizarre suicide.
Falling from No. 3 to No. 4 on the chart was Sony Pictures’ comedy Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, available for digital purchase Nov. 22. In the film, when the Primm family moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. That changes when he discovers Lyle — a singing crocodile who loves baths, caviar and great music — living in the attic of his new home.
Rising from No. 7 to No. 5 on the chart was Paramount’s series juggernaut Yellowstone: Season 5, Part 1. The series follows family patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Coster), who is determined to protect his ranch and his family’s legacy.
With the holidays approaching, the holiday titles The Grinch, 2000’s live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas (both from Universal) and Warner’s Elf landed at No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10, respectively, on the chart for the week.
