‘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.

‘I Can Only Imagine’ Takes Top Spot on June Disc Sales Chart

‘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.

‘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’ Stomps to Top of Home Video Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Rampage led a slew of newcomers onto the national sales charts the week ended July 21.

Rampage, based on the 1980s video game, debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The film, which stars Dwayne Johnson as a gorilla expert trying to stop three giant genetically enhanced animals from destroying Chicago, earned just under $100 million at the domestic box office and is still playing in a handful of theaters trying to cross that threshold.

Coming in at No. 2 on both charts was 20th Century Fox’s Super Troopers 2. A sequel to the Broken Lizard comedy team’s 2002 cult-favorite comedy, Super Troopers 2 was significantly financed through crowdsourcing and earned $30.6 million in U.S. theaters. Super Troopers 2 sold about 36% as many copies as Rampage.

Coming in at a surprising No. 3 on both charts was Warner’s eight-film boxed set of “Harry Potter” films, which was a major promotion of Amazon’s recent Prime Day event.

No. 4 on both charts was the previous week’s top title, Paramount’s A Quiet Place.

The next two slots went to a pair of newcomers, with Universal Pictures’ Amy Schumer-starrer I Feel Pretty taking No. 5 and Fox’s stop-motion Wes Anderson comedy Isle of Dogs at No. 6. The order was reversed on the Blu-ray chart, with Isle of Dogs landing at No. 5 and I Feel Pretty at No. 6.

Other newcomers in the top 20 included Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, from Universal, at No. 9 overall (No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart) and Lionsgate’s Traffik at No. 19 overall.

Blu-ray disc accounted for 50% of total Rampage unit sales, with 8% of its total sales coming from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. Super Troopers 2 had 56% of its first-week sales come from the Blu-ray version.

On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended July 22, Rampage was No. 1, followed by I Feel Pretty at No. 2.

A Quiet Place slipped to No. 3, followed by Universal’s Blockers at No. 4 and Truth or Dare at No. 5.

‘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.
