‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Takes Over Redbox Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Wonder Woman 1984 debuted at No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended April 4, and also moved into the top spot on the Redbox On Demand chart for the week.

The film arrived on Blu-ray and DVD formats March 30 after becoming the beta test for WarnerMedia’s bold strategy of releasing its film slate in theaters with simultaneous month-long availability on HBO Max. Premiering on Christmas, it earned $46.11 million at the domestic box office before bowing on PVOD in February.

The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot reprising the superheroine, this time coming up against a corrupt businessman in the 1980s who gains the power to grant wishes from a magical stone.

The previous week’s top Redbox title, Universal Pictures’ News of the World, slid to No. 2 on both charts. The Western stars Tom Hanks as a Civil War veteran who makes a living reading newspapers to people in frontier towns, whose travels get sidetracked when he is encounters a young white girl who had been captured and raised by Indians, and is tasked with returning her to her family.

That pushed Universal’s The Croods: A New Age to the No. 3 spot on both charts.

The No. 4 title on the disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s more than 40,000 red kiosks, was the Redbox exclusive The Seventh Day, a horror film starring Guy Pearce. It tells the story of a renowned exorcist who teams up with a rookie priest to battle demons. The Seventh Day was No. 10 on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital rental transactions.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s video game adaptation Monster Hunter dropped to No. 5 on the disc rental chart and No. 4 on the digital chart.

The No. 5 digital title was the newly released The Vault, a heist film from Paramount that stars Freddie Highmore. It was released on VOD March 26.

Other newcomers on the disc rental chart include No. 7 Our Friend, a drama from Universal about a man who moves in with his best friend’s family when his friend’s wife is diagnosed with cancer; and No. 10 The Toll, from Lionsgate, about a cab that wanders onto a dark route where the driver and passenger are stalked by a mysterious presence.

‘Croods’ Maintains Lead on Redbox Charts; ‘Promising Young Woman’ Top Newcomer

Universal Pictures’ The Croods: A New Age remained No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended March 21, its second consecutive week in the top spot and third time in four weeks since it arrived on disc.

The DreamWorks Animation sequel also returned to the top spot on the Redbox On Demand chart after two weeks at No. 2. It had been No. 1 for a week at the end of February upon its sellthrough debut, and had previously topped the chart in December when it was in its premium VOD phase.

The week’s top newcomer was Universal’s Promising Young Woman at No. 2 on the disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s more than 40,000 red kiosks, and No. 3 on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital rental transactions.

Promising Young Woman, which is nominated for five Oscars, stars Carey Mulligan as Cassie, whose promising future was derailed by a mysterious event. Wickedly smart and tantalizingly cunning, she’s now living a secret double life by night — and is eager to avenge the wrongs of the past. It earned $5.7 million at the domestic box office and $10.8 million worldwide, which in the pandemic-hampered release year makes it the highest-grossing film among the eight Best Picture Oscar nominees.

The previous week’s top digital title, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s video game adaptation Monster Hunter, slipped to No. 2 on the Redbox on Demand chart and no. 3 on the disc rental chart.
