Redbox Charts Find ‘Serenity’

Serenity came to the Redbox charts and conquered. The thriller took the top spot on both the Redbox disc rental and digital charts for the week ended May 5, breaking Glass’s two-week reign at No. 1.

The Universal film, starring Matthew McConaughy and Anne Hathaway, debuted in the No. 1 spot on the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at the company’s more than 40,000 red vending machines, as well as the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital transactions, including both electronic sellthrough and streaming rentals. It earned just $8.5 million theatrically.

Sony’s Miss Bala debuted on both charts at No. 2. The cross-border crime thriller, starring Gina Rodriguez, made $15 million at the box office.

Universal’s Glass, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, fell two spots to No. 3 on both charts, while Sony’s Escape Room, about six strangers who find themselves in a maze of deadly mystery rooms, also fell two spots to No. 4 on both charts.

Stubbornly staying in the top five, Warner’s The Mule, starring Clint Eastwood, came in at No. 5 on both the disc rental chart and the digital chart, dropping two spots from No. 3.
