‘Nobody’ Again Tops Vudu and FandangoNow Charts

The Bob Odenkirk suspense actioner Nobody again took the top spot on the Vudu and FandangoNow charts for the week ended April 25.

Both are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

Available for premium VOD rental, Universal Pictures’ Nobody stars Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) as a seemingly ordinary suburban husband and father whose pent-up fury is unleashed when his home is broken into. His search for vengeance unveils a secret from his past.

Disney’s animated Raya and the Last Dragon repeated at No. 2 on the Vudu chart and fell to No. 3 on the FandangoNow. The fantasy adventure became available for digital purchase April 2 following its debut in theaters and via Premier Access with an added charge for subscribers to the Disney+ streaming service. In the film, long ago, in the world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. When sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned, and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good.

Warner Bros.’ animated and live-action comedy Tom & Jerry repeated at No. 3 on the Vudu chart and moved up from No. 3 to No. 2 on the FandangoNow chart. Available for premium VOD rental starting April 16, the film previously debuted simultaneously in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service. In the film, the iconic mouse Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner (Chloë Grace Moretz) to hire Tom to get rid of him. The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and possibly the hotel itself. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.

Warner Bros.’ The Little Things, which became available for digital purchase April 20 after a stint as a premium VOD rental and simultaneous release in theaters and on HBO Max, took the No. 4 spot on the Vudu chart and landed at No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart. The psychological thriller stars Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto. It follows Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Washington), who is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city. Leading the hunt is L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim Baxter (Malek), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help. But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.

Lionsgate’s The Courier, which became available for premium VOD rental April 16, stayed in the fourth spot on the FandangoNow chart. In the true-life Cold War spy thriller, unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) becomes entangled in one of the greatest international conflicts in history. Recruited by MI6 and a CIA operative (Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), Wynne forms a covert partnership with a Soviet officer, and both men risk everything in a danger-fraught race against time to provide the intelligence needed to prevent nuclear confrontation and end the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Oscar-lauded films Minari (No. 6), Nomadland (No. 7) and Promising Young Woman (No. 8) appeared on the FandangoNow chart. During the Academy Award ceremony April 25, Nomadland, available for digital purchase April 13, won three Oscars (Best Picture, Best Actress for Frances McDormand and Best Director for Chloé Zhao); Minari, available for premium VOD rental, picked up a Best Supporting Actress award for Yuh-Jung Youn; and Promising Young Woman, available for digital rental and purchase, earned a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Emerald Fennell.
