‘Honest Thief’ Tops Vudu, FandangoNow Charts

The Liam Neeson thriller Honest Thief topped both the Vudu and FandangoNow charts the week ended Dec. 13.

Both are transactional video-on-demand services owned by Fandango.

Honest Thief, available for digital purchase on both sites, stars Neeson as a notorious bank robber who wants to turn over a new leaf and turns himself in, but he is double crossed by a couple of FBI agents.

Taking the silver on the Vudu chart was Love and Monsters, available for digital purchase and rental. The film takes place seven years after a “monsterpocalypse” — giant monsters taking over the Earth’s surface — forces all of humanity to move into underground colonies. It was No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart.

The classic holiday film Elf, starring Will Ferrell, was the No. 3 title on the Vudu chart and No. 7 on the FandangoNow chart.

Available as a premium rental, Universal Pictures’ horror comedy Freaky, starring Kathryn Newton and Vince Vaughn, came in at No. 2 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 4 on Vudu). It follows 17-year-old Millie Kessler who spends her days trying to survive high school and the cruel actions of the popular crowd. When she becomes the latest target of the Butcher, the town’s infamous serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries.

The drama Let Him Go, also available as a premium rental, took the bronze on the FandangoNow chart. It stars Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as a retired sheriff and his wife who leave their Montana ranch to rescue their young grandson from the clutches of a dangerous family living off the grid in the Dakotas. It came in at No. 7 on the Vudu chart.
