DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods: A New Age again took the top spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended March 20. A computer-animated sequel to 2013’s The Croods, A New Age, distributed by Universal Pictures, has topped the Watched at Home chart for four straight weeks and five out of six since it debuted on digital sellthrough Feb. 9. It arrived on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Feb. 23. The film features the voices of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Peter Dinklage, and follows the caveman Crood family as they encounter the more civilized Bettermans.
Sony Pictures’ video game adaptation Monster Hunter, starring Milla Jovovich as the leader of a military unit battling deadly creatures from another world, spent a third-straight week at No. 2 on the Watched at Home chart, which tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental).
The only newcomer making its first appearance in the top 20 during the week was Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984, which became available for digital sellthrough March 16 in advance of its March 30 release on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, 3D Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot reprising the title superheroine, this time facing a global crisis after a corrupt businessman obtains a magical stone that grants wishes to everyone in the world. It earned $45.6 million at the domestic box office during a theatrical run that saw it available simultaneously for streaming on HBO Max starting on Christmas. It was then released through premium VOD Feb. 12.
Oscar nominee Promising Young Woman moved up six spots to No. 4 following its March 16 Blu-ray Disc and DVD release. The revenge thriller from Universal Pictures stars Carey Mulligan as a former medical student who was headed for success until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future.
Rounding out the top five was STX Films’ Greenland, distributed on disc by Universal Pictures. The sci-fi drama, which stars Gerard Butler as a man trying to get his family to a military shelter when comets threaten to wipe out life on Earth, was ranked third the previous two week and has been a top-five title for eight straight weeks.
