The film, which follows two best friends who are chased through Europe by assassins after one of their old boyfriends turns out to be a CIA agent, earned $33.6 million in North American theaters.

The movie debuted at No. 1 on both the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at the company’s more than 40,000 red disc vending machines, and the Redbox On Demand digital chart, which tracks digital transactions, both electronic sellthrough (EST) and transactional video-on-demand (TVOD) streaming.

A third new release, Warner’s Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, debuted at No. 6 on the Redbox disc-rental chart.

Slender Man, a critically panned horror film inspired by the creepy pasta Internet meme of a murderous, thin, faceless humanoid who stalks children, grossed $30.6 million domestically.

‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Tops Redbox Digital Chart

Universal Pictures’ Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, a musical comedy based on the music of Swedish pop group ABBA, took the top spot on the Redbox On Demand chart for the week ended Oct. 28.

The Redbox On Demand chart tracks digital transactions, both electronic sellthrough (EST) and transactional video-on-demand (TVOD) streaming, the electronic equivalent to renting a DVD or Blu-ray Disc.

The film, a belated sequel to 2008’s Mamma Mia, debuted at No. 4 on the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at the company’s more than 40,000 red disc vending machines, typically positioned inside or outside of supermarkets and mass merchants like Walmart.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again grossed more than $120 million in North American theaters and features an ensemble cast that includes Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Andy García, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Alexa Davies, Jeremy Irvine, Josh Dylan, Hugh Skinner, Cher, and Meryl Streep.

The Mamma Mia sequel was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Oct. 23, two weeks after it became available for digital purchase or streaming.

On the Redbox kiosk chart, Walt Disney’s Ant-Man and the Wasp moved up to No. 1 in its second week of availability, knocking Universal Pictures’ Skyscraper to No. 2 after two weeks as the most in-demand disc rental.

Sony Pictures’ Hotel Transvylvania slipped a spot to No. 3 after two weeks in the second chart position.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox disc rental chart was Universal Pictures’ The First Purge, which moved up a spot from No. 6 the prior week.

On the Redbox On Demand digital chart, Skyscraper and Hotel Transylvania 3 both slipped a spot, to No. 2 and No. 3, to make way for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Warner’s Ocean’s 8 moved back up to 4 from No. 5 the previous week, with Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom taking its place, down two spots from the previous week.

‘Ant-Man and The Wasp,’ ‘Reprisal’ Debut in Top 10 on Redbox Disc Rental Chart

Two new releases debuted in the top 10 on the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, the week ended Oct. 21.

But demand for neither Walt Disney’s Ant-Man and The Wasp nor Lionsgate’s Reprisal was strong enough to dislodge Universal Pictures’ Skyscraper and Sony Pictures’ Hotel Transylvania 3 from the two top chart positions.

Skyscraper, an action film starring Dwayne Johnson as a former FBI agent out to rescue his family from a newly built skyscraper that has been taken over by criminals and set on fire, remained at No.1 for the second consecutive week.

And Hotel Transylvania 3, the third film in computer-animated comedy film franchise, remained at No. 2.

Ant-Man bowed at No. 3 on the kiosk chart, while Reprisal debuted at No. 4.

Both films were released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Oct. 16. 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.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox kiosk chart was Sony Pictures’ Sicario: Day of the Soldado.

Skyscraper and Hotel Transylvania 3 also held onto the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Neither new release appeared on the digital chart. Ant-Man and The Wasp is not available through Redbox On Demand.

Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom moved back up to No. 3 from No. 5 the prior week, bumping Sicario: Day of the Soldado down a notch to No. 4.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox On Demand digital chart was Warner’s Ocean’s 8, which moved up to No. 5 from No. 8 the previous week.

‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado,’ ‘The First Purge’ Top Redbox Disc Rental and Digital Charts

Two new releases debuted in the two top spots on both Redbox charts the week ended Oct. 7.

Sony Pictures’ Sicario: Day of the Soldado, a thriller centered around the drug war at the U.S.-Mexico border and a sequel to 2015’s Sicario, bowed at No. 1 on both the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Bowing at No. 2, also on both charts, was Universal Pictures’ The First Purge, the fourth film in “Purge” franchise, about an annual 12-hour span in which Americans are invited to get out their aggressions, no matter how violent.

Both films were released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Oct. 2 and on digital two weeks earlier, on Sept. 18.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which earned $50.1 million in U.S. and Canadian theaters, features Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Jeffrey Donovan reprising their roles. Joining the cast are Isabela Moner, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Catherine Keener.

The First Purge, with a worldwide gross of $135.9 million the top box officer earner in the franchise, is a prequel to the three other films. The film earned $69.1 million in North American theaters and stars Y’lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, and Steve Harris.

After two weeks at No. 1, Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom slipped to No. 3 on both charts.

The film, the fifth in the “Jurassic Park” series, grossed $416.6 million in the United States and Canada and another $887.1 million in other territories for a total worldwide gross of $1.304 billion.

Lionsgate’s Uncle Drew in its second week of release finished the week at No. 6 on the disc-rental chart and No. 5 on the digital chart.

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart were Solo: A Star Wars Story, from Walt Disney, at No. 4, and Warner’s Ocean’s 8 at No. 5

On the digital chart, Ocean’s 8 came in at No. 4.

‘Uncle Drew’ Outrents ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ at Redbox

Uncle Drew, a sports comedy from Lionsgate that earned $42.5 million in North American movie theaters, saw higher rental demand at Redbox kiosks the week ended Oct. 1 than Walt Disney’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, which even with a domestic gross of $214 million was the poorest performer of the 11 “Star Wars” movies.

Both films were released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Sept. 25.

Uncle Drew debuted at No. 2 on the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, while Solo bowed at No. 3.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the latest installment in the blockbuster dinosaur franchise from Universal Pictures, remained at No. 1 for the second consecutive week on both the Redbox kiosk chart and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

The film, the fifth in the “Jurassic Park” series, grossed $416.6 million in the United States and Canada and another $887.1 million in other territories for a total worldwide gross of $1.304 billion.

One other new release debuted in the top 10 on the Redbox rental chart: the much-maligned Gotti, starring John Travolta as the notorious New York gangster. The crime drama, bowing at No. 7, had been slated for release in December 2017, but two weeks before the scheduled release date Lionsgate sold the film back to its producers – hence, the delay. Gotti was ultimately released for the home market on Sept. 25 by Vertical Entertainment, with Lionsgate still handling distribution.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox kiosk charts were the Sandra Bullock-starrer Ocean’s 8 at No. 4 and Tag at No. 5, both released by Warner Bros.

On the Redbox On Demand chart, Ocean’s 8 remained at No. 2 for the second consecutive week while Uncle Drew debuted at No. 3, even though it was released digitally two weeks prior to its disc issuance.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox digital chart were Tag at No. 4 and Gotti at No. 5, the latter up from No. 8 the prior week.

Redbox Revs Up Digital Movie Store with GM Hire

Stepping up its efforts in the digital retail space, Redbox has hired a general manager for its Redbox On Demand digital video store.

As GM, Chris Yates will oversee the company’s growing digital video business, responsible for both P&L and strategy. Redbox On Demand was launched late last year with more than 6,000 movie and TV show titles available for on-demand streaming or purchase and digital deals with all major studios except for the Walt Disney Co.

In recent months, more than a dozen new content partners have helped to double the library of movies and TV shows available via transactional video on demand (TVOD) and electronic sellthrough (EST).

“Less than a year out from our beta launch, On Demand has surpassed major milestones and is a rapidly growing player in the competitive digital home entertainment space,” said Galen Smith, CEO of Redbox. “Having Chris at the helm of an incredibly talented team will help take Redbox On Demand to the next level.”

Yates is digital entertainment veteran. He has held senior roles in content production, distribution and consumer electronics at companies such as Dell, CinemaNow and Omnia Media. His work includes content production and distribution across transactional video, social, ad-supported and subscription video platforms with a focus on improving content monetization, licensing and original content development.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Yates most recently served as head of business development, content and strategy at Whipper Snapper Media, a digital studio and network for kids and families. He led developed overall company strategy, operations and partnership opportunities; led partnerships with OTT services including YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, Hulu and other  distribution platforms; managed content and programming strategy for owned and operated channels.

In his new role as GM of Redbox On Demand, Yates reports to Jason Kwong, Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, who joined the company in September 2017 to oversee the On Demand, Video Games, media and advertising, and additional new business initiatives at Redbox.

“We’re thrilled to have a dedicated general manager on board to run our On Demand service as it becomes increasingly popular with current and new Redbox customers,” Kwong said. “Chris is the right leader as he brings deep knowledge of both traditional and digital media, and an appreciation for our unique value prop – consumer choice across price points and formats.”

Back in January 2018, explaining the rationale behind Redbox On Demand, Smith told Media Play News, “Our customers come to us for that transactional experience – it’s Friday night, and they want to watch a specific movie.

“We try to satisfy them with our kiosk network, but there are occasions where you might not want to go out and rent a movie from a kiosk. So rather than lose that transactional occasion, we’re giving them the chance to get it online.”

‘Ocean’s 8’ Tops Redbox Disc and Digital Charts

Ocean’s 8, the newly released comedy from Warner Bros., was the top physical and digital movie at Redbox the week ended Sept. 17.

The film, an all-female spinoff of the Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s” trilogy, was No. 1 on both Redbox’s kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Ocean’s 8 grossed nearly $140 million in North American theaters and features an ensemble cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina.

Ocean’s 8 was released digitally Aug. 21 and on disc Sept. 11.

Two other new releases also debuted in the top 10, one on the Redbox kiosk chart and the other on the Redbox On Demand digital chart.

On the Redbox kiosk chart, the DVD and Blu-ray Disc of SuperFly bowed at No. 4. A remake of the 1972 blaxploitation film Super Fly, the theatrical underperformer stars Trevor Jackson, Jason Mitchell,  Michael Kenneth Williams (“The Wire”), Lex Scott Davis, Jennifer Morrison, Kaalan Walker, Esai Morales, and Andrea Londo.

On the Redbox on Demand chart, Vertical Entertainment’s much-maligned mobster film Gotti, with John Travolta portraying notorious New York gangster John Gotti, debuted at No. 7.

Twentieth Century Fox’s superhero spoof Deadpool 2 dropped to No. 3 on Redbox’s disc rental chart after two weeks at No. 1, while Warner’s Tag held firm at No. 2.

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart was Universal Pictures’ Adrift, which debuted at No. 4 the prior week. The film, about two seafaring adventurers who unwittingly sail into a hurricane, earned just under $31.5 million domestically.

On the Redbox On Demand chart, Paramount’s Annihilation, originally released back in May, made a surprise return to the chart at No. 2.

Tag, the top digital title the prior week, slipped to No. 3.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox On Demand digital chart for the week ended Sept. 17 were Adrift at No. 4 (down from No. 2 the previous week) and  Deadpool 2 at No. 5 (down from No. 3).
