Redbox on Jan. 5 announced the most-watched movies in 2021 across its AVOD channels, Redbox On Demand digital retail store, and nearly 40,000 kiosks offering DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals.

Texas Killing Fields, a crime drama starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, was the top AVOD title; Free Guy, the Ryan Reynolds action comedy, was the top TVOD release; and the animated kids’ movie The Croods: A New Age was the top disc rental of 2021.

Galen Smith

The year 2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Redbox, which went public last October in part to fuel its content spend. The company continues to offer disc rentals at its nearly 40,000 red kiosks outside, or inside, supermarkets, convenience stores, and mass merchants such as Walmart.  But its main focus these days is digital, including Redbox on Demand, where consumers can rent or buy movies and TV shows either through the Redbox website or apps that are now available on Roku, Samsung, VIZIO, LG, Xbox, PlayStation, iOS, Android, and many other platforms. Also available through the Redbox website and app is an AVOD streaming service where consumers can watch thousands of movies for free.

The company says its Redbox Free Live TV service has now surpassed 130 Free Ad Supported Television (FAST) channels offering a wide range of content from The Price is Right: The Barker Era to The Bob Ross channel.

“In 2021, we continued to see growth in our streaming services and our kiosks remain very popular with our customers,” said Galen Smith, CEO of Redbox. “2022 will be a big year for Redbox as we accelerate our digital businesses and celebrate 20 years of bringing the best in entertainment to millions of customers.”

‘Free Guy’ Tops October Disc Sales Chart

Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy was No. 1 on the top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for October 2021 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service.

The Shawn Levy-directed film stars Ryan Reynolds as a bank teller who learns he’s a video game character and yearns to become more than his programming. It was released on disc Oct. 12 and earned $121.5 million at the domestic box office.

The top September seller, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s F9: The Fast Saga, slipped to No. 2 in October.

Disney’s 1993 spooky family comedy Hocus Pocus climbed to No. 3 in October, as it typically enjoys strong sales in the lead up to Halloween. It had been No. 8 in September.

Warner’s The Suicide Squad, the James Gunn-directed sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad about a team of supervillains extorting into conducting covert operations for the U.S. government, debuted on the monthly charts at No. 4, despite having just one week of availability in October after being released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Oct. 26.

No. 5 was another newcomer, Warner’s Space Jam: A New Legacy. The LeBron James-focused remake of 1996’s Space Jam was released on disc Oct. 5.

Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Black Widow was No. 6 in October, down four spots from its September debut position.

A trio of Oct. 19 disc releases also landed in the October top 10. No. 7 was Paramount’s Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, the third live-action film based on Hasbro’s “G.I. Joe” action figures. No. 9 was Universal’s M. Night Shyamalan thriller Old. And No. 10 was Warner’s direct-to-video animated superhero movie Injustice.

No. 8 was Disney’s 1993 animated movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, which like Hocus Pocus is a strong Halloween-season catalog performer.

On the year-to-date chart, the top 10 titles remained the same, though their ordered changed a bit. Universal’s The Croods: A New Age remained the year’s top-selling title, followed by Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984 and Godzilla vs. Kong at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

The continued solid performance of F9 moved it up a spot to No. 4 for the year, dropping Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon to No. 5.

Warner’s sold well enough in October Beetlejuice to push it up to No. 8 for the year, dropping Sony Pictures’ Monster Hunter to No. 9 and Universal’s News of the World to No. 10.

The top newcomer, at No. 2 overall and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart, was Paramount’s Paw Patrol: The Movie, the big-screen version of the popular Nickelodeon animated series.

The No. 3 overall disc seller and No. 2 Blu-ray was Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy in its fourth week on shelves.

Rounding out the top five on both charts were Paramount’s Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (No. 4 overall, No. 5 Blu-ray) and Universal Pictures’ F9: The Fast Saga (No. 5 overall, No. 4 Blu-ray).

JustWatch: ‘Free Guy,’ ‘Yellowstone’ Top Weekly Streamed Movie, TV Show

After finishing the No. 2 most-streamed movie in October (after Halloween), 20th Century Studios’ action-comedy Free Guy moved to No. 1 through Nov. 7, according to new data from JustWatch.

The Paramount+ original series “Yellowstone,” starring Kevin Costner, was the top-streamed TV show.

The company’s international streaming guide tracks more than 20 million users per month across 54 countries.

Free Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds, topped Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures’ Dune and the original Ghostbusters (Sony Pictures), while catalog episodes of “Doctor Who” and “Dexter” topped most-streamed episodic programming.

 

‘Free Guy’ Holds Off Batch of Newcomers to Remain Top Disc Seller for Second Week

Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy remained the No. 1 seller on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Oct. 23.

In maintaining the top spot for a second consecutive week, the video game-themed action comedy starring Ryan Reynolds held off several new releases that landed in the top 10 on both charts, including the second through fourth spots.

The week’s top new release, debuting at No. 2, was Paramount’s Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, which in its first week sold about 80% as many copies as Free Guy did in its second. The third live-action film based on Hasbro’s “G.I. Joe” brand of military action figures looks at the backstory of the ninja warrior Snake Eyes before he becomes a commando for the anti-terrorist Joe team. Snake Eyes was a box office disappointment with just over $28 million at the domestic box office.

No. 3 on both charts was the direct-to-video animated DC Comics superhero film Injustice, from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Based on the video game franchise of the same name, the film depicts a rift in the Justice League when Superman seeks authoritarian control over Earth to avenge the death of Lois Lane in an attack by the Joker. It sold about 30% fewer copies than Snake Eyes.

Universal Pictures’ Old debuted at No. 4 on both charts. The latest thriller from director M. Night Shyamalan depicts a group of strangers struggling to escape a secluded tropical beach when they discover it is surrounded by radiation that causes them to age rapidly. It earned $48.2 million at the domestic box office.

The fourth newcomer to crack the top 10 was Lionsgate’s The Protégé, an action-thriller starring Maggie Q and Michael Keaton about an assassin who seeks to avenge the death of her mentor. It landed at No. 7 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart.

No. 5 on both charts was Universal’s F9: The Fast Saga in its fifth week on shelves.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 61% of total Snake Eyes unit sales, with 18% from a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition and 43% from the regular Blu-ray. It should be noted that aside from digital copies none of the Snake Eyes options were combo packs, meaning the 4K version had just a 4K disc, while the Blu-ray had just a Blu-ray disc.

Injustice saw 84% of its total sales come from Blu-ray Disc, 24% from 4K and 60% from regular Blu-ray. Of note, 16% of its sales were of a DVD version available only at Walmart.

Old had 56% of its unit sales come from Blu-ray Disc formats (20% 4K and 36% BD), while Protégé had 62% (19% 4K and 43% BD).

The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Oct. 24 had Old debut in the top spot, followed by Snake Eyes at No. 2 and Protégé at No. 3.
