‘Overboard’ Remake Tops Redbox Kiosk, On Demand Charts

Lionsgate’s Overboard, a remake of the 1987 MGM romantic comedy, debuted at No. 1 on both Redbox charts the week ended Aug. 6.

The film, which earned just over $50 million in U.S. theaters, took over the top spot on both Redbox’s kiosk rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Overboard stars Eugenio Derbez, Anna Faris, Eva Longoria, John Hannah, and Swoosie Kurtz. The plot is the same as the original, but the roles are reversed: in the 2018 remake, a struggling single mom convinces a rich player with amnesia that they are married.

Rampage, the science-fiction monster movie based on the video game series of the same name, held onto the No. 2 spot on both charts. The Warner Bros. release stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Ready Player One, the latest sci-fi film from Steven Spielberg, took the No. 3 spot on both Redbox charts after bowing at No. 1 the prior week.

Still holding strong is Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty, from Universal Pictures, which remains at No. 4 on both the kiosk disc rental chart and the transactional video chart.

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart was 20th Century Fox’s Super Troopers 2, which had debuted the prior week at No. 3.

On the Redbox On Demand digital chart, the No. 5 spot went to Universal Pictures’ Blockers.

On the kiosk chart, two other new releases bowed in the top 10. Universal Pictures’ Tully, starring Charlize Theron as a mother of three who strikes up a friendship with her nanny (Mackenzie Davis), debuted at No. 9. Lionsgate’s Dark Crimes, with Jim Carrey as a detective who detects similarities between a cold case murder and a popular novel, debuted at No. 10.

Also new on the digital chart is The Miracle Season, from 20h Century Fox, debuting at No. 10. The movie I based on the true story of the Iowa City West High School volleyball team after the sudden death of the team’s leader.

‘Ready Player One’ Tops Redbox Disc Rental, Transactional Video Charts

Warner’s Ready Player One, the latest sci-fi film from Steven Spielberg, debuted at No. 1 on both Redbox charts the week ended July 30.

The film, based on the 2011 Ernest Cline novel, is set in 2045, a time when people use virtual reality software to escape the problems of the real world. A teen orphan named Wade Watts (portrayed by Tye Sheridan) discovers clues to a hidden game promising full ownership of the software and winds up battling a large company out to do the same.

The film, which grossed nearly $138 million in U.S. theaters, took the top spot on both Redbox’s kiosk rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases and rentals.

Rampage, also from Warner, slipped to No. 2 on both charts after bowing at No. 1 the prior week.

Twentieth Century Fox’s Supertroopers 2 debuted at No. 3 on the kiosk disc rental chart but slipped to No. 5 from No. 4 on the transactional video chart. (The film’s digital release preceded its disc release by two weeks.)

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart were Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty at No. 4, down two spots from its No. 2 debut the prior week, and Paramount’s surprise horror hit A Quiet Place at No. 5, down from No. 3.

On the digital chart, A Quiet Place remained at No. 3 and I Feel Pretty slipped two notches to No. 4.

A third new disc release, 20th Century Fox’s Isle of Dogs, debuted at No. 9 on the disc rental chart. The stop-motion animated film written, produced and directed by Wes Anderson is set in a dystopian Japan.

‘Rampage’, ‘I Feel Pretty’ Take Two Top Spots on Redbox Chart

Two new releases took the two top spots on both Redbox charts the week ended July 23.

Rampage, the sci-fi film starring Dwayne Johnson and based on the classic 1980s video game of the same name, rode its nearly $100 million North American box office gross to a No. 1 debut on both Redbox’s kiosk rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases and rentals.

Universal Pictures’ I Feel Pretty, the Amy Schumer comedy that earned just under $50 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 2, also on both charts.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place, the surprise horror hit about a family stalked by monsters that hunt by sound, slipped to No. 3 on both charts.

A third new release, Universal’s Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, debuted at No. 5 on the kiosk disc rental chart and No. 6 on the transactional VOD chart. The Lucy Hale-starring supernatural horror film earned just over $40 million at the domestic box office.

And a fourth newcomer, Lionsgate’s Traffik, bowed at No. 6 on the kiosk chart and No. 8 on the digital chart.

Universal’s Blockers, about a trio of parents who try to stop their daughters from losing their virginity on prom night, slipped to No. 4 on the kiosk chart and No. 6 on the digital chart.

Twentieth Century Fox’s Supertroopers 2 shot up to No. 4 on the Redbox On Demand digital chart.
