DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour, distributed by Universal Pictures, pushed to the top of the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended July 4. The animated film was released for digital sellthrough June 23 and was No. 2 the previous week on the chart, which tracks transactional video activity compiled from studio and retailer data through DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group.
The film was released for premium VOD in April instead of its intended widespread theatrical release, but the DEG doesn’t track films marked as PVOD until their traditional home entertainment window.
Trolls World Tour was released on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD disc July 7 so it should continue to hold a high place on the chart for the next several weeks.
Homebound consumers continued to be enthralled with the TV series “Yellowstone,” which occupied the next three spots on the chart. The third season, which topped the chart the previous week, slipped to No. 2. Season one was No. 3 and season two was No. 4.
No. 5 was a regular VOD release, Screen Media’s war film The Outpost. Based on the 2012 book by Jake Tapper about the Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan, the film stars Orlando Bloom and Scott Eastwood.
The American Fourth of July holiday helped push the Fox catalog title Independence Day from 1996 into the top 20, at No. 8.
