‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ ‘Deadpool 2’ Top Redbox Disc Rental, Digital Charts

Walt Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War shot up to No. 1 on the Redbox’s kiosk rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, for the week ended Aug. 27.

The superhero film, the year’s No. 2 box office hit, debuted on the kiosk chart the previous week at No. 3. Disney and Redbox are embroiled in litigation over Redbox’s sale of digital copy codes; the studio is the only one that won’t sell DVDs or Blu-ray Discs directly to Redbox, forcing the company to buy copies at retail.

On the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD), the No. 1 spot went to 20th Century Fox’s superhero spoof Deadpool 2.

Digital copies of Avengers: Infinity War are still not available through the Redbox On Demand website.

The Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party, from Warner Bros., is the No. 2 movie on both Redbox charts, after having spent the previous two weeks at No. 1. The film earned just under $53 million in U.S. theaters.

On the kiosk chart, Universal Pictures’ Breaking In slipped to No. 3 from No. 2. The revenge thriller, about a mother (Gabrielle Union) who must protect her children after the mansion of her recently deceased father is invaded by a quartet of burglars, earned $46.5 million in U.S. theaters.

On the digital chart, the No. 3 spot went to Lionsgate’s Overboard remake, unchanged from the prior week. Ready Player One, from Warner Bros., moved back up a notch to No. 5, replaced in that position by Breaking In.

On the kiosk chart, Overboard slipped one spot to No. 4.

Universal Pictures’ newly released Show Dogs debuted at No. 5 on the disc rental chart and No. 9 on the Redbox On Demand digital chart. Show Dogs, a buddy cop family film about a Rottweiler police dog and his human partner going undercover at a dog show to crack an animal smuggling ring, earned $37 million in U.S. theaters.

Two other new releases also debuted in the top 10 on the Redbox disc rental chart: Lionsgate’s Bleeding Steel at No. 8 and Paramount’s Action Point at No. 10.

Bleeding Steel, which stars Jackie Chan, is a 2017 Chinese  cyberpunk actioner directed and written by Leo Zhang

Action Point is Johnny Knoxville’s latest “Jackass” film and is filled with the obligatory stunts. The R-rated comedy tanked at the box office and posted the worst opening of Knoxville’s career.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Debuts at No. 3 on Redbox Kiosk Chart

Redbox and The Walt Disney Co. may be feuding, but that hasn’t stopped fans of Avengers: Infinity War from renting the superhero action blockbuster at The Box.

The year’s No. 2 movie, with a domestic box office gross of more than $678 million, debuted at No. 3 on Redbox’s weekly kiosk chart for the week ended Aug. 20.

The kiosk chart tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals.

Films with high purchase appeal, like Avengers, typically don’t see much rental demand, which explains why Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party, from Warner Bros., remains No. 1 on the kiosk chart for the second consecutive week – even though its box office take was less than $53 million.

Life of the Party also repeated at No. 1 on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Disney and Redbox are embroiled in litigation over Redbox’s sale of digital copy codes; the studio is the only one that won’t sell DVDs or Blu-ray Discs directly to Redbox, forcing the company to buy copies at retail.

Avengers: Infinity War is not available on the Redbox On Demand site.

Also repeating, at No. 2, is Universal Pictures’ Breaking In. The revenge thriller, about a mother (Gabrielle Union) who must protect her children after the mansion of her recently deceased father is invaded by a quartet of burglars, earned $46.5 million in U.S. theaters.

Both films were released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on Aug. 7 and digital two weeks earlier (on July 24).

Lionsgate’s Overboard remake finished the week at No. 4 on the Redbox disc rental chart, down from No. 3 the prior week, while the No. 5 spot on the kiosk chart went to Warner’s Rampage, down from No. 4 the previous week.

On the Redbox digital chart, Overboard, Rampage and Ready Player One made encore appearances at Nos. 3, 4 and 5.

Paramount’s Downsizing, released back in March, returned to the Redbox On Demand chart at No. 9.

‘Life of the Party,’ ‘Breaking In’ Take Two Top Spots on Redbox Disc, Digital Charts

The newly released Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party, from Warner Bros., topped both Redbox charts the week ended Aug. 13.

The film, with a domestic box office haul of just under $53 million, debuted at No. 1 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).

Life of the Party is the third film directed by Ben Falcone and written by Falcone and McCarthy (the two earlier films were 2014’s Tammy and 2016’s The Boss). The film stars McCarthy as a newly divorced mother who returns to college to finish her degree, and winds up bonding with her daughter’s friends.

Another new release, Universal Pictures’ Breaking In, debuted at No. 2, also on both charts. The revenge thriller, about a mother (Gabrielle Union) who must protect her children after the mansion of her recently deceased father is invaded by a quartet of burglars, earned $46.5 million in U.S. theaters.

Both films were released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on Aug. 7 and digital two weeks earlier (on July 24).

Lionsgate’s Overboard remake, which debuted at No. 1 the prior week, slipped to No. 3, also on both charts.  .

Rampage, the science-fiction monster movie based on the video game series of the same name, slipped to No. 4 on both charts, after two weeks at No. 2.

Rounding out the top five on both charts was Ready Player One, the latest sci-fi film from Steven Spielberg, down from No. 3 the prior week.

‘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.
