Universal’s Puss in Boots: The Last Wish again topped the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Jan. 22.
Available for premium digital rental and purchase, the DreamWorks animated film is a sequel to Puss in Boots and the sixth installment in the “Shrek” franchise. It follows the continuing adventures of the character Puss (voiced by Antonio Banderas).
Rising a spot to No. 2 on the chart was The Old Way, starring Nicolas Cage. The Western, available for premium digital rental and purchase, follows a gunslinger-turned-family man (Cage) who teams up with his 12-year-old daughter to fight a gang who puts his family in danger.
Jumping seven spots to No. 3 on the chart was Warner Bros.’ superhero film Black Adam, available for digital purchase and newly available for digital rental. In the actioner based on the DC Comics, nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods — and imprisoned just as quickly — Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
Paramount Pictures’ Devotion fell two spots to No. 4 on the chart. Available for digital purchase (and for streaming on Paramount+), the film chronicles the true story of two of the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen in the Korean War.
Falling a spot to No. 5 on the chart was Searchlight Pictures’ The Menu, which recently garnered Golden Globe nominations for Ralph Fiennes for Best Actor and Anya Taylor-Joy for Best Actress. Available for digital purchase and rental, the dark comedy thriller follows a group of diners confronted with horror at a secluded exclusive restaurant.
New to the chart for the week was There’s Something Wrong With the Children, a horror film starring Zachary Gilford and Alisha Wainwright.
