Lionsgate Snags Top Spot on Redbox Disc, Digital Charts with ‘Hunter Killer’

Lionsgate snagged the top spot on both Redbox charts the week ended Feb. 3 with Hunter Killer, an actioner starring Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman about a squad of Navy SEALs who save the kidnapped Russian president from a military coup.

The film, which earned $15.8 million at the domestic box office, 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 vending machines, and the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks transactional video-on-demand (TVOD), both electronic sellthrough (EST) and streaming.

The new Lionsgate release pushed the prior week’s top Redbox title, Universal Pictures’ First Man, to No. 2 on both charts.

The biopic about Neil Armstrong’s celebrated 1969 moon landing earned $44.9 million at the domestic box office.

Night School, also a Universal Pictures release, held onto the No. 3 on the Redbox disc-rental chart and moved back up to No. 3, from No. 5 the prior week, on the Redbox on Demand digital chart.

A third Universal Pictures films, Halloween, the 11th installment in the horror franchise, slipped from No. 2 on both charts the prior week to No. 4 on the kiosk chart and No. 6 on the kiosk chart.

Rounding out the top five on the kiosk chart was Sony Pictures’ Goosebumps 2, down a notch from the previous week.

On the Redbox On Demand digital chart, 20th Century Fox’s The Hate U Give slipped to No. 4 from No. 3 the prior week, while Sony Pictures’ The Wife debuted at No. 5.

The Wife, starring Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, and Christian Slater, is a drama about a wife who grapples with a lifelong deception as she travels to Stockholm with her husband, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The Wife, an art-house film highly praised by critics, debuted at No. 8 on the Redbox kiosk chart.

A third new release, Walt Disney’s The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, debuted at No. 7 on the Redbox kiosk chart. Disney is the only studio that does not sell product directly to Redbox, prompting the kiosk vendor to buy copies at retail. That explains the relatively low showing for film that earned nearly $55 million in North American theaters.

On the Redbox On Demand chart, the newly released Indivisible, from Universal Pictures, debuted at No. 9. The Christian is based on the true story of Darren Turner, an Army chaplain striving to balance his faith with the war in Iraq.
