‘Don’t Breathe 2’ Debuts Atop Redbox Disc Rental Chart; ‘Free Guy’ Tops Digital Chart Again

Sony Pictures’ Don’t Breathe 2 debuted at No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended Oct. 31, and was No. 3 on the Redbox On Demand chart for the week.

In the horror sequel, Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang) has been hiding out for several years in an isolated cabin. He lives with a young girl and has re-created the family stolen from him by a drunk driver. Their quiet life together is shattered when a group of unseemly criminals kidnaps her and forces Norman to tap into even darker and more creative instincts in an effort to save her. It earned $32.6 million at the domestic box office.

Another newcomer, Warner’s The Suicide Squad, debuted at No. 2 on the disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s more than 40,000 red kiosks. Written and directed by James Gunn, the sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad is based on the DC Comics team of supervillains who are extorted into performing covert missions for the U.S. government. It earned $55.8 million at the domestic box office.

The top title on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital VOD and sellthrough transactions, was Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy. It’s the third consecutive week in the top digital spot for the film, which stars Ryan Reynolds as a bank teller who learns he is a video game character. Free Guy took No. 3 on the disc rental chart after becoming available at kiosks a few weeks after its disc has been available for sale.

No. 4 on both charts was another newcomer, Universal Pictures’ Stillwater. The film stars Matt Damon as an Oklahoma father looking for evidence to free his daughter from prison in France. It earned $14.5 million at the domestic box office.
