The Disney/Marvel Studios film Thor: Love and Thunder topped the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Sept. 11.
Newly available for digital purchase Sept. 8, the superhero tale, which is also streaming on Disney+, finds the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — one of self-discovery. But his efforts are interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods.
Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick fell from the top spot to No. 2 on the chart. The sequel, available for digital purchase, features Tom Cruise reprising his role as daring pilot Maverick, who is assigned to teach a group of Top Guns how to complete a difficult mission.
Debuting at No. 3 on the chart was Universal Pictures’ thriller Beast, available for premium digital rental and purchase. The film stars Idris Elba as a recently widowed doctor who returns to South Africa on a long-planned trip to a game reserve. He and his daughters find themselves hunted by a rogue lion.
Debuting at No. 4 on the chart was Sony Pictures’ romantic drama Where the Crawdads Sing. The film, based on the best-selling mystery thriller, became available for digital purchase Sept. 6.
Falling from No. 2 to No. 5 on the chart was Universal Pictures’ Minions: The Rise of Gru, the latest installment in Illumination’s “Despicable Me” animated franchise. The film, available for digital purchase, tells the story of 12-year-old Gru’s dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain.
