Bond Thriller ‘No Time to Die’ Returns to Top of Weekly Vudu Chart

The latest James Bond thriller, No Time to Die, topped the chart of the 10 most-popular titles on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Dec. 12.

The Universal/MGM film, which stars Daniel Craig in his last turn as the iconic spy, became available for digital purchase Dec. 7. It previously topped the chart the week ended Nov. 14 when it was made available for premium VOD.

Sony Pictures’ Marvel Comics-based Venom: Let There Be Carnage fell from the top spot to No. 2 on the chart. The sequel, which arrived Nov. 23 for digital purchase, stars Tom Hardy as journalist Eddie Brock, who interviews a serial killer (Woody Harrelson) who becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage.

Dropping from No. 2 to No. 3 on the chart was the Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures feature Dune: Part One, which arrived for premium digital ownership and rental Dec. 3 after its theatrical and HBO Max debut. The film, starring Timothée Chalamet, is based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Frank Herbert.
