Redbox Charts See ‘The Upside’ at No. 1

Universal’s The Upside topped both the Redbox disc rental and digital charts for the week ended May 26.

The comedy, starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart, 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. The film, about an out-of-work ex-con and a wealthy quadriplegic who unexpectedly come together and help each other bring back their zest for life, earned $108.3 million at the box office.

Two other new disc releases, Universal’s How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Warner’s Isn’t It Romantic, landed at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, on the disc chart. The two titles switched places, with Dragon at No. 3 and Romantic No. 2 on the digital chart for the week. The third installment in the series about a boy and his dragon made $160.6 million theatrically, while the romantic comedy sendup starring Rebel Wilson earned $48.8 million.

The previous week’s top title, Lionsgate’s Liam Neeson actioner Cold Pursuit, fell to No. 4 on both charts, while the wrestling story Fighting With My Family, No. 2 on both charts the previous week, landed at No. 5 on the disc chart (No. 7 on digital).

Again boosted by the theatrical release of the latest installment in the Keanu Reeves series, John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, Lionsgate’s catalog actioner John Wick dropped one spot to No. 5, hanging in on the digital chart.
