Warner Bros. Pictures’ horror movie Malignant has disappointed at the box office, but not on HBO Max where it streams free for subscribers. The James Wan-directed title was the most-streamed movie for the week ended Sept. 19, according to new data from JustWatch.
Runner-ups included Universal Pictures’ reboot Candyman, which is available on transactional VOD, and Sony Pictures’ 2018 action-adventure Venom.
Among TV shows streamed, Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building,” starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, again trended tops among viewers. A notable podium finisher was Apple TV+ Emmy-winning original comedy series “Ted Lasso,” with Jason Sudeikis headlining a largely British cast about an American college football coach recruited to manage a London-based professional soccer team. The series just trailed Netflix’s “American Crime Story.”
