‘Monster Hunter’ Captures Top Spot on Redbox Charts

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Monster Hunter debuted at No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental and Redbox On Demand charts the week ended March 7.

Based on the video game franchise, Monster Hunter stars Milla Jovovich as Capt. Artemis, whose unit is caught in a sandstorm that transports them to a world ruled by dangerous and powerful monsters. As they fight to survive, they encounter the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. It earned $14.4 million at the domestic box office.

The previous week’s top title, Universal Pictures’ The Croods: A New Age, dropped to No. 2 on both charts. The Redbox disc rental chart tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s more than 40,000 red kiosks, while the Redbox On Demand chart tracks digital rental transactions.

No. 3 on both charts was another new disc release, Lionsgate’s Fatale. The psychological thriller stars Michael Ealy as a sports agent who gets entangled in the murder investigation of a police detective (Hilary Swank) with whom he had a one-night stand. It earned $6.3 millon from U.S. theaters.
