‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Tops Redbox Digital Chart

Universal Pictures’ Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, a musical comedy based on the music of Swedish pop group ABBA, took the top spot on the Redbox On Demand chart for the week ended Oct. 28.

The Redbox On Demand chart tracks digital transactions, both electronic sellthrough (EST) and transactional video-on-demand (TVOD) streaming, the electronic equivalent to renting a DVD or Blu-ray Disc.

The film, a belated sequel to 2008’s Mamma Mia, debuted at No. 4 on the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at the company’s more than 40,000 red disc vending machines, typically positioned inside or outside of supermarkets and mass merchants like Walmart.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again grossed more than $120 million in North American theaters and features an ensemble cast that includes Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Andy García, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Alexa Davies, Jeremy Irvine, Josh Dylan, Hugh Skinner, Cher, and Meryl Streep.

The Mamma Mia sequel was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Oct. 23, two weeks after it became available for digital purchase or streaming.

On the Redbox kiosk chart, Walt Disney’s Ant-Man and the Wasp moved up to No. 1 in its second week of availability, knocking Universal Pictures’ Skyscraper to No. 2 after two weeks as the most in-demand disc rental.

Sony Pictures’ Hotel Transvylvania slipped a spot to No. 3 after two weeks in the second chart position.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox disc rental chart was Universal Pictures’ The First Purge, which moved up a spot from No. 6 the prior week.

On the Redbox On Demand digital chart, Skyscraper and Hotel Transylvania 3 both slipped a spot, to No. 2 and No. 3, to make way for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Warner’s Ocean’s 8 moved back up to 4 from No. 5 the previous week, with Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom taking its place, down two spots from the previous week.
