‘Overboard’ Remake Tops Redbox Kiosk, On Demand Charts

Lionsgate’s Overboard, a remake of the 1987 MGM romantic comedy, debuted at No. 1 on both Redbox charts the week ended Aug. 6.

The film, which earned just over $50 million in U.S. theaters, took over the top spot on both Redbox’s kiosk rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Overboard stars Eugenio Derbez, Anna Faris, Eva Longoria, John Hannah, and Swoosie Kurtz. The plot is the same as the original, but the roles are reversed: in the 2018 remake, a struggling single mom convinces a rich player with amnesia that they are married.

Rampage, the science-fiction monster movie based on the video game series of the same name, held onto the No. 2 spot on both charts. The Warner Bros. release stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Ready Player One, the latest sci-fi film from Steven Spielberg, took the No. 3 spot on both Redbox charts after bowing at No. 1 the prior week.

Still holding strong is Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty, from Universal Pictures, which remains at No. 4 on both the kiosk disc rental chart and the transactional video chart.

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart was 20th Century Fox’s Super Troopers 2, which had debuted the prior week at No. 3.

On the Redbox On Demand digital chart, the No. 5 spot went to Universal Pictures’ Blockers.

On the kiosk chart, two other new releases bowed in the top 10. Universal Pictures’ Tully, starring Charlize Theron as a mother of three who strikes up a friendship with her nanny (Mackenzie Davis), debuted at No. 9. Lionsgate’s Dark Crimes, with Jim Carrey as a detective who detects similarities between a cold case murder and a popular novel, debuted at No. 10.

Also new on the digital chart is The Miracle Season, from 20h Century Fox, debuting at No. 10. The movie I based on the true story of the Iowa City West High School volleyball team after the sudden death of the team’s leader.
