‘Deadpool 2,’ ‘Tag’ Top Redbox Charts

Twentieth Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 debuted at No. 1 on Redbox’s kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, for the week ended Sept. 3.

Meanwhile, on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD), the No. 1 spot went to Warner’s Tag. Deadpool 2, the No. 1 digital title the prior week, slipped to No. 2.

(Deadpool 2 was released digitally two weeks before it came out on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.)

On Redbox’s kiosk chart, the No. 2 spot went to Tag, also newly available on disc.

Deadpool 2 is a superhero spoof and the 11th installment in the X-Men film series. Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character, a disfigured and deeply disturbed mercenary and assassin with superhuman healing ability and strength. Deadpool 2 came to the home sector with $318.5 million in domestic theatrical earnings.

Tag is a comedy based on a true story about a group of grown men who spend one month a year playing the game of tag. The film grossed $53.6 million at the box office.

Paramount’s Book Club, with a domestic gross of $68.6 million, debuted at No. 3 on both the disc rental and the digital chart. The romantic comedy stars Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton and Mary Steenburgen as four friends who read Fifty Shades of Grey for their monthly book club, with a pronounced change in how they view their personal relationships.

On the kiosk chart, Walt Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War slipped to No. 4 from No. 1 the previous week. Disney is the only studio that does not sell product directly to Redbox, forcing the company to send crews into stores to buy copies at retail.

On the Redbox On Demand chart, Universal Pictures’ Upgrade came in at No. 4. The horror film, about a man – paralyzed in a mugging – who is implanted with a chip that lets him control his body, was released digitally on Aug. 14, the same day as Book Club.

Upgrade was released on disc on Aug. 28 and is the fourth new release to debut among the top 10 on the Redbox kiosk chart, bowing at No. 7.

Rounding out the top five on both charts is the Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party, from Warner Bros., down from No. 2 the prior week.
