Both Vudu and FandangoNow are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

Warner Bros.’ Wrath of Man, newly available for digital rental as well as purchase, took the silver on both charts. Based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck, the actioner pairs director Guy Ritchie with Jason Statham.

Taking the third spot on the FandangoNow chart (No. 4 on Vudu) was Warner’s actioner Mortal Kombat, available for digital purchase.

Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with.

Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies from Outworld.

Disney’s Cruella, which became available for premium digital purchase June 25, landed at No. 4 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 7 on Vudu). The prequel tells the story of the rise of the 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil.

‘Nobody,’ ‘Wrath of Man’ Top Vudu, FandangoNow Charts

The Bob Odenkirk action thriller Nobody led the Vudu chart for the week ended June 13, while the Jason Statham actioner Wrath of Man, which led both the Vudu and FandangoNow charts for two consecutive weeks, managed to hang on to the top spot on the FandangoNow chart for a third consecutive week.

Both Vudu and FandangoNow are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

Universal Pictures’ Nobody, newly available for digital purchase, managed to dethrone Wrath of Man for the top spot on the Vudu chart. In the film, Odenkirk plays a mild-mannered father and husband who hits a boiling point when he’s robbed. The film took the bronze on the FandangoNow chart.

Warner Bros.’ Wrath of Man, based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck and available as a premium VOD rental, pairs Statham with director Guy Ritchie. In the film, a mysterious new security guard for a cash truck surprises his co-workers when he unleashes precision skills during a heist, and the crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. The marksman’s ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score. It took the No. 2 spot on the Vudu chart.

Coming in at No. 2 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 3 on Vudu) was Lionsgate’s horror sequel Spiral: From the Book of Saw, available as a premium digital rental. Spiral centers on Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock), who is working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran played by Samuel L. Jackson. Along with his rookie partner (Max Minghella), Banks takes charge of an investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past.

Godzilla vs. Kong, from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, fell to No. 4 on both charts. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård and Millie Bobby Brown and is available for premium digital purchase ($29.99). In this installment in the MonsterVerse, Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.

Coming in at No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart was Gravitas Ventures’ dramatic comedy Queen Bees, available at a premium digital rental. In the film, while her house undergoes repairs, a fiercely independent senior Helen (Ellen Burstyn) moves into a nearby retirement community temporarily. Once behind the doors of Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a hotbed of bullying “mean girls” the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school, all of which leaves her yearning for the solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it’s never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love. The film also stars James Caan, Ann-Margret, Jane Curtain and Christopher Lloyd.

Taking the fifth spot on the Vudu chart was Warner Bros.’ Tom & Jerry, the live-action/animation hybrid family comedy based on the iconic cat and mouse duo.

The 1993 family favorite The Sandlot made it to the Vudu top 10 list in the No. 7 position. The title is currently on sale for $4.99 for Father’s Day.

Vudu Bows List of Top NYC Movies as ‘In the Heights’ Debuts

Fandango’s Vudu streaming service has created a list of the best New York City movies ever made, ranked on Rotten Tomatoes.

The list celebrates movies in which the five boroughs play a role, in honor of this week’s theatrical release of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights, which offers a tour of Manhattan’s Washington Heights community and ranks as Fandango’s top ticket-seller for the weekend.

The Vudu collection of top NYC Movies includes comedies, dramas, horror flicks, monster movies and musicals.

“There’s something about New York City that’s incredibly cinematic, and it’s not a coincidence that many of the most popular movies of all time, from The Godfather to Goodfellas to Do the Right Thing to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, are set in the five boroughs,” Fandango managing editor Erik Davis said in a statement. “With this week’s release of In the Heights, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the best of the Big Apple on the big screen.”

To compile the films in the editorial guide, Rotten Tomatoes gathered an extensive list of movies set in and about New York, and then ranked them by their adjusted Tomatometer, a formula that takes into account their Tomatometer scores but also number of reviews, year of release, and more, to make comparing movies from different eras fairer. The top 212 selections made the cut, with the “212” number chosen because it was the first area code assigned to New York City in 1947.

‘Wrath of Man’ Continues Atop Vudu and FandangoNow Charts

The Jason Statham actioner Wrath of Man led both the Vudu and FandangoNow charts for a second consecutive week.

Both are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.

Falling from No. 3 to No. 4 on both charts was the Sony Pictures horror film The Unholy, which became available for digital purchase May 25. Based on James Herbert’s best-selling book Shrine, the film follows a young hearing-impaired girl who is visited by the Virgin Mary and can suddenly hear, speak and heal the sick. As people from near and far flock to witness her miracles, a disgraced journalist (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) hoping to revive his career visits a small New England town to investigate. As terrifying events begin to happen all around him, he starts questioning if these miracles are the works of the Virgin Mary or something much more sinister.

‘Wrath of Man’ Tops Vudu and FandangoNow Charts

The Jason Statham actioner Wrath of Man led both the Vudu and FandangoNow charts the week ended May 30.

Both are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

Director Guy Ritchie teams up with Statham in Warner Bros.’ Wrath of Man, based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck and available as a premium VOD rental. In the film, a mysterious new security guard for a cash truck surprises his co-workers when he unleashes precision skills during a heist. The crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. Soon, the marksman’s ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score.

From Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, Godzilla vs. Kong dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 on both charts. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård and Millie Bobby Brown and debuted for digital purchase May 21. In this installment in the MonsterVerse, Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.

Coming in at No. 3 on both charts was the Sony Pictures horror film The Unholy, which became available for digital purchase May 25.

As terrifying events begin to happen all around him, he starts questioning if these miracles are the works of the Virgin Mary or something much more sinister.

Disney’s animated Raya and the Last Dragon, available for digital rental or purchase, landed at No. 4 on both charts. In the fantasy adventure, 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.

The Warner Bros. film, featuring Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña and Colin Jost, follows the iconic mouse Jerry who moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner (Moretz) to hire Tom to get rid of him.

But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.
