DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods: A New Age again took the top spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended March 6 thanks to a continued boost from its Feb. 23 release on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.
The Watched at Home chart tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental).
The film, distributed by Universal Pictures, debuted on digital sellthrough Feb. 9. A computer-animated sequel to 2013’s The Croods, A New Age 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 rose a spot to No. 2. Based on the video game franchise of the same name, the film stars Milla Jovovich as Capt. Artemis, whose unit is caught in a sandstorm that transports them to a world ruled by dangerous and monsters. As they fight to survive, they encounter the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures.
Meanwhile, STX Films’ Greenland fell a spot to No. 3. It was released on Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 9 by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The film stars Gerard Butler as a man trying to get his family to a military shelter after comets threaten life on Earth.
The week’s top newcomer, at No. 4, was A+E’s Girl in the Basement, a Lifetime movie inspired by actual events available for digital purchase or rentl. It’s the horrific story of Sara (Stefanie Scott), a teen girl looking forward to her 18th birthday so she can move away from her controlling father Don (Judd Nelson).
