Universal Pictures’ animated sequel Sing 2 again topped the chart of the 10 most-popular titles on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Jan. 23.
The Illumination film, which became available for premium digital rental Jan. 7, follows the animal singers as they plan a new show and try to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star, Clay Callaway (voiced by Bono), to join them. It also features the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Taron Egerton.
Repeating at No. 2 was Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which became available for digital purchase Jan. 4. The franchise relaunch from director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman 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 and the secret legacy their grandfather, an original Ghostbuster, left behind.
Landing at No. 3 was Sony Pictures’ Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, which became available for digital purchase Jan. 18.

Dropping from No. 3 to No. 4 was Disney’s Marvel Comics-based Eternals, which became available for digital purchase Jan. 12, and falling from No. 4 to No. 5 was the sci-fi film Dune, available for non-premium digital purchase Jan. 11.
