‘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.

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Tops Redbox Disc, Digital Charts; Lionsgate’s ‘Siberia’ Makes Strong Debut

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the latest installment in the blockbuster dinosaur franchise from Universal Pictures, topped both Redbox charts the week ended Sept. 24.

The film, the fifth in the “Jurassic Park” series and a sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, 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.

No surprise, then, that the film would debut at 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).

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Sept. 18 and on digital two weeks earlier.

One other new release debuted in the top 10 on the Redbox disc chart: Lionsgate’s Siberia, bowing at No. 5. The film, about an American diamond dealer who travels to Russia to sell rare blue diamonds, only to fall in love with a café owner as the deal goes south, stars Keanu Reeves, Ana Ularu, Pasha D. Lychnikoff, Molly Ringwald, and Wagner Moura.

Taking the No. 2 spot on both Redbox charts was Warner’s Ocean’s 8, the comedy heist film that debuted at No. 1 the prior week, also on both charts. 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.

Warner’s Tag finished the week at No. 3 on both charts, slipping from No. 2 on the disc rental chart and holding firm on the digital chart.

Twentieth Century Fox’s superhero spoof Deadpool 2 dropped to No. 4 on both charts.

Rounding out the top five on the Redbox On Demand digital chart was Universal Pictures’ Adrift, about two seafaring adventurers who unwittingly sail into a hurricane. The film, which earned just under $31.5 million domestically, had been No. 4 the prior week. On Redbox’s kiosk chart, Adrift slipped to No. 7 from No. 5.

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

‘Adrift,’ ‘Hereditary,’ ‘Destination Wedding’ New to Redbox Charts

Twentieth Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 and Warner’s Tag remained at No. 1 on Redbox’s disc rental and digital charts for the week ended Sept. 10.

Deadpool 2, a superhero spoof that earned $318.5 million in U.S. theaters, topped the Redbox kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, for the second consecutive week.

Tag, a comedy about a group of grown men who spend one month each year playing the game of tag, accomplished the same feat on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD).

Tag also repeated at No. 2 on the Redbox disc-rental chart, while on the digital chart Deadpool 2 – which was released digitally two weeks before it came out on DVD and Blu-ray Disc – slipped to No. 3.

Taking its place at No. 2 on the Redbox On Demand chart was Adrift, from Universal Pictures, about two seafaring adventurers who unwittingly sail into a hurricane. The film, with a domestic box office gross of just under $31.5 million, debuted at No. 4 on the disc-rental chart.

Adrift was released digitally on Aug. 21 and on disc two weeks later.

Hereditary, a supernatural horror film from Lionsgate about a family haunted after the death of their grandmother, debuted at No. 3 on the Redbox kiosk chart. The film premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to earn $44 million in U.S. theaters.

On the digital chart, Book Club slipped to No. 4 from No. 3, while the Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party, from Warner, remains at No. 5.

Book Club, with a domestic gross of $68.6 million, is a romantic comedy that stars Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton and Mary Steenburgen as four friends who read Fifty Shades of Grey for their monthly book club, with a pronounced change in how they view their personal relationships.

‘Deadpool 2,’ ‘Tag’ Top Redbox Charts

Twentieth Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 debuted at No. 1 on Redbox’s kiosk chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals, for the week ended Sept. 3.

Meanwhile, on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital purchases (EST) and rentals (TVOD), the No. 1 spot went to Warner’s Tag. Deadpool 2, the No. 1 digital title the prior week, slipped to No. 2.

(Deadpool 2 was released digitally two weeks before it came out on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.)

On Redbox’s kiosk chart, the No. 2 spot went to Tag, also newly available on disc.

Deadpool 2 is a superhero spoof and the 11th installment in the X-Men film series. Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character, a disfigured and deeply disturbed mercenary and assassin with superhuman healing ability and strength. Deadpool 2 came to the home sector with $318.5 million in domestic theatrical earnings.

Tag is a comedy based on a true story about a group of grown men who spend one month a year playing the game of tag. The film grossed $53.6 million at the box office.

Paramount’s Book Club, with a domestic gross of $68.6 million, debuted at No. 3 on both the disc rental and the digital chart. The romantic comedy stars Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton and Mary Steenburgen as four friends who read Fifty Shades of Grey for their monthly book club, with a pronounced change in how they view their personal relationships.

On the kiosk chart, Walt Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War slipped to No. 4 from No. 1 the previous week. Disney is the only studio that does not sell product directly to Redbox, forcing the company to send crews into stores to buy copies at retail.

On the Redbox On Demand chart, Universal Pictures’ Upgrade came in at No. 4. The horror film, about a man – paralyzed in a mugging – who is implanted with a chip that lets him control his body, was released digitally on Aug. 14, the same day as Book Club.

Upgrade was released on disc on Aug. 28 and is the fourth new release to debut among the top 10 on the Redbox kiosk chart, bowing at No. 7.

Rounding out the top five on both charts is the Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party, from Warner Bros., down from No. 2 the prior week.
