‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Grabs Top Spot on Redbox Disc Rental Chart

Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took over the No. 1 spot on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended Feb. 19. The sequel, which deals with Wakanda protecting itself from a hidden underwater kingdom in the wake of King T’Challa’s death, was released on disc Feb. 7 but didn’t make it to Redbox kiosks until Feb. 14.

The No. 1 Redbox On Demand title was Screen Media’s Poker Face, a thriller written by, directed by and starring Russell Crowe, who plays a wealthy art collector and gambler who, upon learning he’s dying of cancer, arranges a poker night with his buddies hoping to teach them a lesson for secretly slighting him, only for his house to be attacked by art thieves.

Screen Media’s The Locksmith, about a former prisoner (Ryan Phillippe) who is pulled back into a world of crime despite wanting to settle down with his detective girlfriend (Kate Bosworth) and their daughter, was No. 2 on the Redbox disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s thousands of red kiosks, and No. 3 on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital VOD and sellthrough transactions. The film was the top digital title a week earlier, and is available early on disc through Redbox kiosks, as it won’t receive a wide disc release until March 14.

Universal’s M3GAN remained No. 2 on the Redbox On Demand chart in its penultimate week as a premium sellthrough and VOD release.

The No. 3 disc rental was Universal’s director Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical The Fabelmans, about the family life of a young man who grows up wanting to be a filmmaker.

The previous week’s top disc rental, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Violent Night , slid to No. 4 on the disc chart, but appeared in the No. 8 spot on the digital chart. The actioner depicts a drunken Santa (David Harbour) who stumbles upon a mansion during an armed heist and must fight his way out.

Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment’s Black Adam slid to No. 5 on the Redbox disc rental chart, and was No. 7 on the digital chart.

The No. 4 digital title was Lionsgate’s Plane, an actioner about a pilot (Gerard Butler) who saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island, and then must team with an accused murderer (Mike Colter) to free the passengers after they are taken hostage by dangerous rebels.

No. 5 on the digital chart and No. 9 on the disc chart was Universal Pictures’ Ticket to Paradise, the rom-com starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts as divorced parents trying to stop their lovestruck daughter from getting married.
