Sony Pictures’ Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City took the top spot on the chart of the 10 most-popular titles on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Dec. 26.
The sci-fi horror actioner, available for premium digital rental, returns to the origins of the franchise in Raccoon City.
Dropping to No. 2 from the top spot was Sony’s Marvel Comics-based sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage, available for digital purchase and rental. It stars Tom Hardy as journalist Eddie Brock, who interviews a serial killer (Woody Harrelson) who becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage.
Taking the bronze on the chart was MGM’s latest James Bond film No Time to Die, which rose from No. 4 the previous week. Available for digital rental and purchase, it’s the last Bond film with Daniel Craig in the lead role.
Meanwhile, holiday films continued to appear on the Vudu chart the week of Christmas. The 2000 live-action film How the Grinch Stole Christmas, starring Jim Carrey, came in at No. 4, and Illumination’s 2018 animated The Grinch, with the title character voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, landed at No. 7.
New to the chart were Disney’s animated musical Encanto — available for digital purchase (and also available free to stream for Disney+ subscribers) — and the horror-suspense thriller Antlers — also available for digital purchase — at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.
