Taking the top spot again for the week ended Dec. 27, the animated sequel became available for premium rental at the services Dec. 17.

Coming in at No. 2 on both charts was Greenland, available for premium rental Dec. 18. The action thriller follows a family who fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth.
