‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Tops Weekly Vudu Chart

Three new titles led the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended June 12.

The A24 hit Everything Everywhere All at Once, available for digital purchase, debuted at No. 1 on the chart. The film stars Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn Wang, a flustered immigrant mother who is contacted from a parallel universe and told that only she can save the world. The unlikely hero must learn to channel her newfound powers and fight through the splintering timelines of the multiverse to save her home, her family and herself.

Another new title available for digital purchase, Lionsgate’s The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, landed at No. 2 on the chart. The film stars Nicolas Cage as himself. Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Cage accepts a million-dollar offer to attend the birthday of a dangerous superfan (Pedro Pascal). Things take an unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative (Tiffany Haddish) and he must use his legendary acting skills, channeling his most iconic and beloved characters, to become a real-life action hero.

Debuting at No. 3 on the chart was Focus Features’ Downton Abbey: A New Era, the second film based on the successful series about the exploits of an aristocratic British family. It became available for premium digital sale and rental June 10.

Remaining at No. 4 on the chart was DreamWorks Animation’s caper comedy The Bad Guys, available for premium digital purchase and rental. Distributed by Universal, the animated adventure follows reformed but misunderstood criminal animals who attempt to become good.

Amazon Acquires Documentary ‘Val’

Amazon Studios has acquired U.S. and Latin American rights to the documentary Val, about actor Val Kilmer.

From directors Leo Scott and Ting Poo, this is the first feature in the slate of documentaries and doc-series being produced by A24, which has a nonfiction arm led by Ben Cotner.

Amazon Studios will release the documentary later this year in the United States and Latin America. A24 controls all remaining worldwide rights.

For more than 40 years Kilmer, one of Hollywood’s most mercurial and/or misunderstood actors has been documenting his own life and craft through film and video. He has amassed thousands of hours of footage, from 16mm home movies made with his brothers, to time spent in iconic roles for blockbuster movies such as Top GunThe DoorsTombstone and Batman Forever. The documentary reveals a life lived to extremes and a look at what it means to be an artist and a complex man.

“At least once a day for years I looked around and got this bittersweet feeling that there are a thousand reasons that this project could’ve been shipwrecked,” Kilmer said in a statement. “I mean, what could a film look like of a man filming himself, sometimes daily, years at a time? It is unimaginable that this movie actually could’ve ever come to light without the partnership of my dear friends, Leo and Ting, and my producing partners. Tireless hours of editing and endless emotions with each new cut. I couldn’t be more proud to share this with the world.”

“Filmmakers Leo Scott and Ting Poo have a unique, cutting-edge style and artistry, weaving together never-before-seen footage into a beautiful, raw story about this renowned and celebrated actor, artist and man,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “We’re excited to work with Val and the A24 team on their first produced documentary feature and to share this unprecedented film with audiences.”
