‘Violent Night’ Again Tops Weekly Vudu Chart

Universal’s Violent Night again led the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu the week ended Jan. 1.

Available for premium digital rental and purchase, Violent Night follows mercenaries who attack the estate of a wealthy family, but who run up against Santa Claus. It stars David Harbour and John Leguizamo.

Rising to four spots to No. 2 was Top Gun: Maverick, available for digital rental and on sale for digital purchase. The sequel features Tom Cruise reprising his role as daring pilot Maverick, who is assigned to train a new generation of pilots how to complete a difficult mission.

Falling a spot to No. 3 on the chart was Warner Bros.’ superhero film Black Adam, based on the DC Comics. In the actioner, available for digital purchase, nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods — and imprisoned just as quickly — Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

Reappearing at No. 4 on the chart was Lyle, Lyle Crocodile, available for digital rental and on sale for digital purchase. In the film, when the Primm family moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. That changes when he discovers Lyle — a singing crocodile who loves baths, caviar and great music — living in the attic of his new home.
