‘M3GAN’ Tops Weekly Vudu Chart

Universal Pictures’ M3GAN topped the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Jan. 29.

The Blumhouse film, newly available for premium digital purchase and rental, is about a life-like artificial intelligence doll given to a young niece (Violet McGraw) by her robotics engineer aunt (Allison Williams) after the girl’s parents are killed in an automobile accident. The movie has earned $146 million in global revenue.

Falling to No. 2 from the top spot was Universal Pictures’ Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which is also available for premium digital rental and purchase. The DreamWorks animated film is a sequel to Puss in Boots and the sixth installment in the “Shrek” franchise. It follows the continuing adventures of the character Puss (voiced by Antonio Banderas).

Remaining at No. 3 on the chart was Warner Bros.’ superhero film Black Adam, available for digital rental and on sale for digital purchase. In the actioner based on the DC Comics, nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods — and imprisoned just as quickly — Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

Falling to No. 4 from No. 2 on the chart was The Old Way, starring Nicolas Cage. The Western, available for premium digital rental and purchase, follows a gunslinger-turned-family man (Cage) who teams up with his 12-year-old daughter to fight a gang that puts his family in danger.

Returning to the chart for the week was A24’s Oscar-nominated Everything Everywhere All at Once. The multiverse tale earned 11 Academy Award nominations. It’s available for digital purchase.
