‘Greenland’ Climbs to Top of ‘Watched at Home’ List

STX Films’ Greenland, released on Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 9 by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, jumped up to the No. 1 spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended Feb. 20.

Greenland, in which Gerard Butler plays a man trying to get his family to get his family to a military shelter while comets threaten life on Earth, had been in second place a week earlier on the Watched at Home chart, which tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group. This is its fourth week on the chart, having started in the fourth spot at the end of January and moved up one spot each week since.

The previous week’s most-watched title, DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods: A New Age from Universal Pictures, dropped to No. 2.

The top newcomer to the chart was No. 3 Monster Hunter, from Sony Pictures. Based on the video game franchise of the same name, the film stars Milla Jovovich as Capt. Artemis, whose unit is caught in a sandstorm that transports them to a world ruled by dangerous and monsters. As they fight to survive, they encounter the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. Monster Hunter became available for digital sellthrough on Feb. 16, ahead of its March 2 release on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

Rounding out the top five were Universal’s Let Him Go at No. 4 and Warner’s Tenet at No. 5.

The film, which stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a World War II flight officer on a secret mission when her bomber is attacked by gremlins, was released through digital channels at the beginning of the year and is currently available on disc exclusively through Redbox (though the Watched at Home chart doesn’t account for disc rentals).

‘American Skin’ Again the Most-Watched Movie in Homes Last Week

With a scarcity of new releases, there were few changes to the weekly “Watched at Home” chart for the week ended Feb. 6.

The Vertical Entertainment drama American Skin, about a Marine veteran who seeks justice when his son is killed by a police officer, finished in first place for the third consecutive week on the chart, which tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group.

Universal’s Let Him Go shot up to No. 2 from No. 14 the prior week, fueled by its Feb. 2 release on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Based on the novel of the same name by Larry Watson, the film stars Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as a husband and wife who, following the death of their son, leave their Montana ranch to trek through North Dakota to rescue their young grandson from the clutches of a ruthless family. The film earned $9.4 million in U.S. theaters and was released for digital sellthrough on Jan. 19.

Let Him Go displaced Warner Bros.’ Tenet from the No. 2 slot. The Christopher Nolan actioner slipped to No. 6.

Greenland, another STX Films release, switched spots with Universal’s Honest Thief to land at No. 3, with the latter slipping a spot to No. 4.

Once again rounding out the top 5 was Universal’s The War With Grandpa.

Groundhog Day, the 1993 Bill Murray comedy about a man caught in a time loop who has to relive Groundhog Day, Feb. 2, over and over again, was the highest-charting new entry. The Sony Pictures release debuted at No. 7.

There is only one other new entry on the “Watched at Home” chart, Bleeker Street’s Wild Mountain Thyme, which bowed at No. 20. The film was released on DVD and through digital retailers Feb. 2 by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Wild Mountain Thyme, directed by John Patrick Shanley (Moonstruck), follows headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt), who has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly’s love. The problem is Anthony (Jamie Dornan) seems to have inherited a family curse and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father Tony Reilly’s (Christopher Walken) plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew (Jon Hamm), Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams in this comedic romantic tale.

‘Greenland’ Top New Release on Weekly ‘Watched at Home’ Chart

The doomsday actioner Greenland debuted at No. 4 on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart for the week ended Jan. 30.

It’s the week’s highest-charting new release, and the only one to make the top five on the chart, which tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group.

Greenland, starring Gerard Butler and Morena Baccarin, follows a family’s fight for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. The film launched on premium VOD in the United States Dec. 18 as a $19.99 48-hour rental. The STX Entertainment release subsequently became available for digital purchase Jan. 26 and will be issued on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Feb. 9.

Other new releases on the “Watched at Home” chart for the week ended Jan. 30 include Batman: Soul of the Dragon, which debuted at No. 12; Synchronic, which bowed at No. 17; Come Play, which entered the chart at No. 16; and Freaky at No. 18.

Batman, Synchronic and Come Play were released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Jan. 26 after two weeks of availability via digital sellthrough.

The animated Batman: Soul of the Dragon, also available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray from Warner Bros., is the 41st film in the DC Universe series of animated movies. The Elseworlds tale, set in the 1970s, has Bruce Wayne in martial arts training alongside other students under a master sensei to confront a deadly menace. Read a review of the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray here.

Synchronic, from independent distributor Well Go USA, is a sci-fi thriller about two paramedics who discover a drug that enables time travel. The film enjoyed a one-week disc rental window at Redbox kiosks a week before its wide disc release on Jan. 26.

The supernatural thriller Come Play, from Universal, follows a young boy who relies on his cell phone and tablet for companionship as he befriends a strange and sinister non-human creature. When the mysterious creature uses the devices to break into our world, his parents must fight to save their son.

Freaky, the latest horror film from Blumhouse, stars Kathryn Newton as Millie, a high school senior who switches bodies with a relentless serial killer nicknamed “The Butcher,” portrayed by Vince Vaughn. Now looking like a towering psychopath, Millie learns she only has 24 hours to reverse the curse and get her body back before the switch becomes permanent and she’s trapped in the form of a middle-aged maniac forever. It was made available via VOD in December.

Also new to the “Watched at Home” chart is Warner’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, a summer 2019 home release that popped up at No. 11 as excitement builds over the next installment in the monster franchise, Godzilla vs. Kong, a mashup that will bow March 31 in theaters and on HBO Max.

Consumers were also intrigued with two Wall Street movies from Paramount Pictures in the wake of the GameStop stock frenzy. The Wolf of Wall Street jumped 10 spots to No. 9 on the “Watched at Home” chart, while The Big Short entered the top 20 for the first time at No. 13.

The Vertical Entertainment drama American Skin, about a Marine veteran who seeks justice when his son is killed by a police officer, remained at No. 1 for a second consecutive week, with Warner Bros.’ Tenet repeating at No. 2 and Universal’s Honest Thief again at No. 3. Rounding out the top 5 was Universal’s The War With Grandpa, down a notch from No. 4 the prior week.

Returning to the top 20 for the first time since early January was Paramount’s dark comedy Fatman, which stars Mel Gibson as a curmudgeonly Chris Cringle who after gifting a spoiled rich kid a lump of coal finds himself the target of a hitman. Read a review of the  Blu-ray Disc here.

‘Tenet’ Tops ‘Watched at Home’ Chart for Third Straight Week

Warner Bros.’ Tenet topped the weekly “Watched at Home” chart for the third consecutive week the week ended Jan. 16. The latest thriller from Christopher Nolan has been No. 1 four of the five weeks since it arrived on DVD and Blu-ray Dec. 15.

The “Watched at Home” chart tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group.

Without much in the way of big new releases, the top seven titles remained unchanged from the previous week. So Universal Pictures’ Honest Thief and The War With Grandpa were No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, while Paramount’s Love and Monsters was No. 4.

Ranking fifth through seventh were the three seasons of Paramount’s “Yellowstone,” with season three at No. 5, season one at No. 6, and season two at No. 7, just like the previous week.

Also new to the chart were No. 17 Songbird, the pandemic thriller from STX Entertainment; No. 18 The Dissident, a Vertical Entertainment documentary about the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi; and Viva Pictures’ animated comedy 100% Wolf at No. 20.

‘Tenet’ Repeats at No. 1 on ‘Watched at Home’ Chart; ‘Parallel’ Sole New Entry

With few new releases, the weekly “Watched at Home” chart remains largely unchanged from the prior week.

Warner Bros.’ Tenet is again No. 1 on the chart for the week ended Jan. 9, while Universal Pictures’ Honest Thief and The War With Grandpa switched places their sophomore week to place at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

Paramount’s Love and Monsters is the week’s biggest gainer, moving up to No. 4 from No. 9 the previous week due to its Jan. 5 release on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray Disc and DVD. The film also was the week’s top disc seller (see related story).

Love and Monsters is a post-apocalyptic action film about a man (Dylan O’Brien) traveling through a world populated by monsters in order to reconnect with his girlfriend (Jessica Henwick). The monsters were created when chemical fallout from the destruction of an asteroid headed for Earth caused all cold-blood creatures to mutate into ferocious monsters. Love and Monsters was released theatrically and on VOD in October 2020.

Rounding out the top five is season three of perennial favorite “Yellowstone,” from Paramount.

Warner Bros. “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy re-entered the chart at No. 16. The set made its 4K Ultra HD debut in December 2020.

The sole new entry on the “Watched at Home” chart was Lionsgate’s Parallel, bowing at No. 20. A Vertical Entertainment release, Parallel revolves around a group of friends who stumble upon a mirror that serves as a portal to a “multiverse,” only to discover that importing knowledge from the other side in order to better their lives brings increasingly dangerous consequences. The film’s cast includes Alyssa Diaz, Kathleen Quinlan Martin Wallstrom, David Harewood and Georgia King.

Newer Releases ‘Tenet,’ ‘War With Grandpa,’ ‘Honest Thief’ Top Weekly ‘Watched at Home’ Chart

Now that Christmas is over, home viewers are done with holiday classics and eager for newer hit movies to watch.

Warner Bros.’ Tenet shot up from No. 3 to take the top spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart for the week ended Jan. 2, while Universal Pictures’ The War With Grandpa and Honest Thief debuted at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

The “Watched at Home” chart tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group.

Honest Thief, which earned $14.2 million at the domestic box office, was the only new release of the three, arriving on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on Dec. 29 — two weeks after it became available for purchase or rent from digital retailers such as FandangoNow and Redbox on Demand. The film stars Liam Neeson as a bank robber who agrees to give up his life of crime for the woman he loves, only to encounter corrupt FBI agents in search of his loot.

The War With Grandpa made its disc debut the week before, on Dec. 22, just one week after its release through digital channels. The film stars Robert De Niro as a recently widowed grandfather who moves in with his daughter (Uma Thurman), forcing his sixth-grader grandson, Peter (Oakes Fegley), to begrudgingly give up his bedroom. To get his room back, Peter stages an assortment of inventive pranks, only to find Grandpa is an expert at payback — and soon the two are engaged in an all-out “war.”

Tenet, from director Christopher Nolan, had debuted at No. 1 on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended Dec. 19, four days after its release on DVD, Blu-ray Disc, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and digital sellthrough following a $57.9 million haul at the domestic box office. It subsequently slipped to No. 3 as viewers shifted to holiday films such as National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, which succeeded Tenet in the top spot.

Christmas Vacation fell out of the top 20 entirely, as did each of the eight other holiday movies on the chart the previous week, including Elf (No. 2), A Christmas Story (No. 4) and Home Alone (No. 6).

Rounding out the top five on this week’s chart were The Office: The Complete Series, from Universal, which moved up to No. 4 from No. 16 the prior week on the eve of its streaming shift from Netflix to NBCUniversal’s Peacock, and Season 1 of perennial chart favorite “Yellowstone,” from Paramount.

Other new releases on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart for the week ended Jan. 2 were Sony Pictures’ The Craft: Legacy (No. 12); the Vertical Entertainment thriller The Informer (No. 13); Warner’s original 2017 Wonder Woman (No. 18), drafting off the theatrical and HBO Max success of the sequel Wonder Woman 1984, which came out Dec. 25; and IFC’s Hunter Hunter (No. 20).

‘Christmas Vacation’ Visits No. 1 Spot on ‘Watched at Home’ Chart

The week of Christmas fittingly saw Warner’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation move into the No. 1 spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended Dec. 26. The 1989 comedy, the third in the raunchy “Vacation” series, had been No. 4 the previous week.

The previous week’s most-watched title, director Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, also distributed by Warner, dropped to No. 3 on the chart that tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group.

Warner’s Elf remained in the No. 2 spot.

Another holiday classic getting a bump from Christmas week was Warner’s A Christmas Story. The family comedy from 1983 rose to No. 4, up from No. 10 the previous week.

Completing a clean sweep for Warner in the top five was the eight-film “Harry Potter” collection.

Among catalog titles new to the chart were 20th Century Studios’ Die Hard, the Christmas-set action classic starring Bruce Willis, at No. 14, and the Bill Murray comedy Scrooged, from Paramount, at No. 19.

The glut of holiday movies pushed season two of Paramount’s “Yellowstone” off the top 20 for the first time since June. The other two seasons remained on the chart, with season three at No. 10 and season one at No. 18.
