‘Godzilla x Kong’ Tops Weekly Fandango at Home Chart Through May 19

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire topped the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Fandango at Home (previously Vudu) for the week ended May 19.

The action film, which became available for premium digital purchase and rental May 14, follows up on the showdown of Godzilla versus Kong, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence — and our own. The epic delves further into the histories of the Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge the extraordinary beings and tied them to humanity forever. Meanwhile, Monsterverse fans looking for more Godzilla action landed the Godzilla v Kong 5-Film Collection ($59.99) at No. 4.

Falling from the top spot to No. 2 on the chart was Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the fifth film in the “Ghostbusters” franchise, the fourth set in the continuity stemming from 1984’s original Ghostbusters, and a sequel to 2021’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The film finds the team back in business in New York City and facing off against a fear demon that leaves its victims frozen solid. It became available for premium digital rental and sale May 7.

Remaining at No. 3 on the chart was The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, available for premium digital rental and sale starting May 10 from Lionsgate. The Guy Ritchie-directed film, based on the book The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: How Churchill’s Secret Warriors Set Europe Ablaze and Gave Birth to Modern Black Ops by Damien Lewis, tells the story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII. The team inspired author Ian Fleming to create the James Bond spy novels.

Falling from No. 2 to No. 5 on the chart was Universal Pictures’ horror thriller Abigail, which became available for premium digital rental and sale beginning May 7. Based on the 1936 movie Dracula’s Daughter, the vampire tale follows a heist team that is hired by a mysterious fixer to kidnap the daughter of a powerful underworld figure. They must guard the 12-year-old ballerina for one night to net a $50 million ransom. As the captors start to dwindle one by one, they discover to their mounting terror that they’re locked inside an isolated mansion with no ordinary little girl.
