‘Elvis’ Tops Redbox Disc Rentals; ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ Tops Digital Chart

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Elvis debuted at No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended Sept. 18. The Elvis Presley biopic from director Baz Luhrmann has earned $150.7 million at the domestic box office.

The previous week’s top disc rental, Universal Pictures’ Minions: The Rise of Gru slipped to No. 2. The fifth entry and second prequel in the “Despicable Me” franchise features the minions helping the younger Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) fulfill his dream of becoming a supervillain.

The No. 1 title on the Redbox On Demand chart for the week was another newcomer, Sony Pictures’ Where the Crawdad Sings. The film, based on the novel of the same name about an abandoned girl who raises herself in the woods, earned nearly $89 million at the domestic box office. It was No. 3 on the Redbox disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s thousands of red kiosks.

No. 4 on the disc rental chart, and No. 2 on the Redbox On Demand chart,  which tracks digital VOD and sellthrough transactions, was Universal’s Jurassic World Dominion. The extended cut of the film was No. 4 on the digital chart, where it is tracked separately (though it is included with the disc version as well as the digital sellthrough version at some retailers).

The No. 5 disc rental, and No. 3 digital title, was Universal’s The Black Phone, a thriller starring Ethan Hawke about a kidnapped boy who finds a phone that lets him hear from previous victims.

Rounding out the top five digital titles was Paramount’s Top Gun: Maverick.

A couple of titles that are available on disc early through Redbox also appeared in the top 10 on both charts.

Vertical Entertainment’s Bruce Willis actioner Wrong Place was No. 6 on the digital chart and No. 7 on the disc chart a week before its DVD and Blu-ray wide release date.

Paramount’s Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin was the No. 6 disc rental and No. 9 on the digital chart. The seventh “Paranormal Activity” movie is currently streaming on Paramount+ but was released on DVD exclusively at Walmart Sept. 13. A Blu-ray of the film arrives Oct. 11 as part of a franchise boxed set.
