‘Ready Player One’ Tops Redbox Disc Rental, Transactional Video Charts

Warner’s Ready Player One, the latest sci-fi film from Steven Spielberg, debuted at No. 1 on both Redbox charts the week ended July 30.

The film, based on the 2011 Ernest Cline novel, is set in 2045, a time when people use virtual reality software to escape the problems of the real world. A teen orphan named Wade Watts (portrayed by Tye Sheridan) discovers clues to a hidden game promising full ownership of the software and winds up battling a large company out to do the same.

The film, which grossed nearly $138 million in U.S. theaters, took 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 and rentals.

Rampage, also from Warner, slipped to No. 2 on both charts after bowing at No. 1 the prior week.

Twentieth Century Fox’s Supertroopers 2 debuted at No. 3 on the kiosk disc rental chart but slipped to No. 5 from No. 4 on the transactional video chart. (The film’s digital release preceded its disc release by two weeks.)

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart were Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty at No. 4, down two spots from its No. 2 debut the prior week, and Paramount’s surprise horror hit A Quiet Place at No. 5, down from No. 3.

On the digital chart, A Quiet Place remained at No. 3 and I Feel Pretty slipped two notches to No. 4.

A third new disc release, 20th Century Fox’s Isle of Dogs, debuted at No. 9 on the disc rental chart. The stop-motion animated film written, produced and directed by Wes Anderson is set in a dystopian Japan.
