‘A Star Is Born’ Continues to Shine on Redbox Charts

A Star Is Born is still soaring.

Warner’s 2018 update of the classic film story continued to top both Redbox charts the week ended March 3. It took the No. 1 spot 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, for a second consecutive week.

The film, which garnered an Academy Award for Best Original Song and picked up eight nominations, stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga — both nominated for Oscars for their performances — as two musicians in a love affair on stage and in life. It has earned $212.9 million at the box office.
