‘Black Adam’ Threepeats Atop Weekly Vudu Chart

Warner Bros.’ superhero film Black Adam for the third consecutive week led the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Dec. 11.

The film, based on the DC Comics, became available for premium digital purchase and rental Nov. 22. 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.

Debuting at No. 2 on the chart was the true-story-based She Said, costarring Zoe Kazan and 2023 Golden Globe Best Supporting Actress nominee Carey Mulligan. The film, about the New York Times investigation at the center of the #MeToo movement, is available for premium digital purchase and rental.

Rising from No. 4 to No. 3 on the chart was Sony Pictures’ comedy Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, available for digital purchase. 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.

Falling from No. 3 to No. 4 on the chart was the horror film Smile, which is available for digital purchase and 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.
