Paramount’s ‘Scream’ Relaunch Tops Weekly Vudu Chart

Paramount Pictures’ new Scream film led the chart of the 10 most-popular titles on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended March 6.

The 2022 horror flick, available for digital rental and purchase March 1, reunites Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, reprising their roles. The story takes place 25 years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro as a terrifying new killer resurrects the Ghostface mask. As the deaths mount, Woodsboro’s new targets must seek help from the survivors of the original attacks.

Illumination’s Sing 2, which fell from the top spot on the chart to No. 2, is newly available for digital purchase. It follows the animal singers as they plan a new show and try to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star, Clay Callaway (voice of Bono), to join them. The film also features the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Taron Egerton.

Debuting at No. 3 was the Liam Neeson actioner Blacklight, newly available for digital rental. The film follows a government operative with a shadowy past who discovers a plot targeting U.S. citizens and finds himself in the crosshairs of the FBI director he once protected.

Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Afterlife fell from No. 2 to No. 4 on the chart. Available for digital rental and purchase, the franchise relaunch, from director Jason Reitman and produced by his late father, is a sequel to the two 1980s “Ghostbusters” movies. It follows a single mom and her two kids who arrive in a small town and begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters.
