‘Godzilla vs. Kong,’ ‘Nobody’ Remain Atop Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Godzilla vs. Kong stayed No. 1 on the national physical media sales charts for a third consecutive week, taking the top spot on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended July 3.

No. 2 for a second week was Universal Pictures’ Nobody, the actioner from the “John Wick” creative team starring Bob Odenkirk. It sold about 54% as many copies as Godzilla vs. Kong during the week.

The titles held firm atop the charts mainly due to a lack of notable new releases during the week, resulting in a number of catalog titles dominating the top 20.

For instance, Warner’s 1996 animation/live-action sports comedy Space Jam climbed back to No. 4 in anticipation of the July 16 release of its sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy, in theaters and on HBO Max.

And 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, also from Warner, rose to No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc chart (No. 22 overall) thanks to a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray re-release to mark the film’s 50th anniversary, which accounted for 78% of the titles total unit sales.

The No. 3 overall disc seller, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, was Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon.

Warner’s direct-to-video animated movie Batman: The Long Halloween — Part One dropped to No. 5 on the overall chart but stayed No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart.

‘Demon Slayer,’ ‘Nobody’ Top Vudu, FandangoNow Charts

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train took over the top spot of the Vudu chart the week ended June 27, while the Bob Odenkirk actioner Nobody grabbed No. 1 on the FandangoNow chart.

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

The film earned $455 million at the global box office. It was No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Nobody, which was No. 2 on the Vudu chart, stars Bob Odenkirk as a family man repressing a dangerous past that resurfaces after he interrupts burglars robbing his home. When he learns his daughter’s kitty bracelet is missing, he snaps and sets off on a mission of revenge looking to vent his deep-seated rage. Read a review here.

Disney’s Cruella, which became available for digital purchase June 25, was No. 2 on the FandangoNow chart and No. 3 on the Vudu chart. The prequel tells the story of the rise of the 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil.

The previous week’s top Vudu title, Warner’s Godzilla vs. Kong, dropped to No. 4 on that chart and No. 6 on the FandangoNow chart. The film from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.

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

The No. 3 FandangoNow title and No. 5 on the Vudu chart was DreamWorks Animation’s Spirit Untamed, from Universal Pictures.

June 22 Disc Releases Include ‘Nobody,’ ‘The Unholy,’ New Batman Animation

Actioner Nobody from Universal Pictures, horror film The Unholy from Sony Pictures, and a new animated Batman movie from Warner Bros. lead the slate of new releases on DVD and Blu-ray June 22.

The suspense actioner Nobody, starring Bob Odenkirk, is available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD June 22 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. It was previously released for digital sellthrough. From the writer of John Wick, it’s the story of an ordinary family man (Odenkirk, “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul”) who will stop at nothing to defend what is his. Hutch is a suburban husband who takes life’s indignities on the chin and never rocks the boat. But when his daughter loses her beloved kitty-cat bracelet in a robbery, he hits a boiling point no one knew he had, and he flips from regular dad to fearless fighter on a wild ride of explosive revenge. Read a review here.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment June 22 releases Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One on Blu-ray Disc and via digital purchase. The newest entry in the DC Universe animated movie franchise is based on the 1996-97 comic book storyline that takes place early in Batman’s vigilante career, as the young crimefighter forms a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen, police Capt. James Gordon and DA Harvey Dent, to take down organized crime in Gotham City, only to be tested by a serial killer who murders his victims on holidays throughout the year. Part Two arrives for digital purchase July 27 and on Blu-ray Disc Aug. 10. A 4K of both parts combined into a single film will be released next year.

The horror film The Unholy arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and on demand June 22 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. It is already available for digital purchase. 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. The film is produced by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead).

Paramount Home Entertainment releases the crime thriller Georgetown on DVD. The film marks the directorial debut of Christoph Waltz, who also stars alongside Vanessa Redgrave and Annette Bening. In the true crime story, Waltz stars as Ulrich Mott, an eccentric and smooth-talking social climber who seems to have everyone in Washington, D.C. wrapped around his finger. But when his wealthy, well-connected and much older wife (Redgrave) turns up dead in their home, her daughter Amanda (Bening) suspects Ulrich may not be all that he seems as the police investigation begins to uncover a larger deception that goes far deeper than anyone ever imagined.

Also new from Paramount is the action thriller Night of the Sicario from Saban Films. It is already available digitally. In the film, while transporting the family of a key witness in a federal trial against the cartel, DEA agents are ambushed in a fatal shootout. Now the survivors, including the young daughter of the witness, must take refuge in a nearby home as the ruthless sicarios hunt them down. With danger at every corner and a violent hurricane wiping out any chance of outside help, they must play a deadly game of cat and mouse with the cartel to live through the night. Natasha Henstridge (Species) and Costas Mandylor (“Saw” franchise) star.

The martial arts action comedy The Paper Tigers comes out on Blu-ray and DVD from Well Go USA Entertainment. The film is currently available in theaters and for digital purchase. An homage to feel-good martial arts films such as The Karate Kid, the film follows three dedicated kung fu disciples who grow up into washed-up, middle-aged men. When their master is murdered, they must juggle their dead-end jobs, dad duties and old grudges to avenge his death.

The Willem Dafoe thriller Siberia will come out on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and digital June 22 from Lionsgate. In the film written and directed by Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant), the keeper of a snowbound bar is pursued by sinister phantasms. Dafoe plays Clint, who tends bar at a snowbound roadhouse whose patrons speak a language he doesn’t understand, and things may not be what they seem. Desperate for answers, he drives a sled team to a nearby cave, but finds no peace. Are the spirits that confront him mere figments of his imagination — or will they slowly tear his body and soul to pieces?

After breaking global theatrical box office records, anime hit Demon Slayer: Mugen Train will stream exclusively on Funimation in the United States and Canada, starting June 22, and in Australia and New Zealand starting June 23. The film will be dubbed in English and subtitled.

The drama  Life in a Year, starring Jaden Smith and Cara Delevingne, will come out on digital and on demand June 22 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The story follows Daryn (Smith), a high school track star, scholar and aspiring rapper, who learns that his girlfriend Isabelle (Delevingne) is sick.

Also this week, Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution will make Cruella available through digital retailers June 25, with a release on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD to follow on Sept. 21. The film, a prequel to 101 Dalmatians, follows the early years of the villainous Cruella de Vil (Emma Stone), when she was a young grifter named Estella during the punk rock revolution in 1970s London. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson), setting off a chain of events that leads Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.

Nobody

BLU-RAY REVIEW:

Street Date 6/22/21;
Universal;
Action;
Box Office $26.1 million;
$29.99 DVD, $34.99 DVD, $44.99 UHD BD;
Rated ‘R’ for strong violence and bloody images, language throughout and brief drug use.
Stars Bob Odenkirk, Connie Nielsen, RZA, Christopher Lloyd, Michael Ironside, Colin Salmon.

Bob Odenkirk makes for a likable but unlikely action star in Nobody as an unassuming family man pushed to the limit.

Hutch Mansell (Odenkirk) seems like a typical suburban husband and father stuck in the daily routines of his boring job. However, the monotony masks a deep-seeded rage that lingers from a mysterious past that he thought he left behind but always suspected would catch up to him.

After he interrupts burglars robbing his house, he puts his skills to use tracking them down hoping to recover his daughter’s kitty-cat bracelet. This sets off a chain of events in which Hutch’s frustration boils to the surface, drawing him into a confrontation with a deadly Russian gangster as he seeks any excuse to unleash his repressed fury.

As a man with a dangerous past trying to live a normal life but drawn back to a world of violence, Hutch shares a lot of traits with John Wick, which shouldn’t come as much surprise given that the Nobody screenwriter was “John Wick” creator Derek Kolstad.

The two characters even face off with Russian baddies, though that may be more a matter of happenstance since the script originally called for Korean gangsters before director Ilya Naishullar signed on and, since he’s Russian, felt more comfortable depicting his own countrymen as the villains.

The end result is a gritty yet effective actioner highlighted by some brutal close-quarters fight sequences.

Subscribe HERE to the FREE Media Play News Daily Newsletter!

The genesis of the story, according to the bonus materials, came from Odenkirk, who looked back at the traumatic experience of his home being robbed in real life and wondering how someone with explicit combat training would have handled it. The project itself came about because Odenkirk hoped to leverage his popularity from “Better Call Saul” into a modestly budgeted action movie that would center on him as the unassuming hero — an intended departure from his comedic background.

This breaking from expectations also led to the casting of Christopher Lloyd as Hutch’s shotgun toting father, a retired former FBI agent who eventually gets drawn into his son’s street war, as does RZA as Hutch’s adopted brother.

These facets of the production’s history are discussed at length by Odenkirk in a commentary track shared with Naishullar, and in several of the behind-the-scenes featurettes. Naishullar also goes solo on a second commentary that goes more into his own personal reasons for making the movie.

Follow us on Instagram

Among the featurettes are the four-minute “Hutch Hits Hard,” about Odenkirk’s training for the role; four “Breaking Down the Action” featurettes totaling about 19 minutes, focused on the bus fight, a home invasion sequence, a car chase and the final battle; and the 13-minute “Just a Nobody,” which covers the origins and making of the story, most of which is also discussed in the commentaries.

The Blu-ray also includes five minutes of deleted scenes.

The 4K disc includes the same extras as the regular Blu-ray.
