Warner Bros.’ ‘Dune: Part Two’ Threepeats Atop Weekly Fandango at Home Chart Through May 5

Warner Bros.’ Dune: Part Two for a third consecutive week topped the chart of the 10 most-popular films on Fandango’s transactional digital service Fandango at Home (previously Vudu) for the week ended May 5.

The sequel, which became available for premium digital rental and sale April 16, is the top box office earner of 2024. The science-fiction story explores the mythic journey of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) as he unites with Chani (Zendaya) and the Fremen while on a path of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee. Meanwhile, the two-film collection of Part One and Two landed at No. 7.

Rising two spots to No. 2 on the chart was Universal/DreamWorks’ animated Kung Fu Panda 4, which became available for premium digital purchase and rental April 9. In the adventure comedy — the fourth in the franchise and the No. 2 box office film of the year — Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee Jack Black returns as the voice of Po, the world’s most unlikely Kung Fu master. After learning he must find a new hero to take over as Dragon Warrior so that he may fulfill his destiny as the next spiritual leader of the Valley of Peace, Po decides to take one last adventurous mission. He teams up with a quick-witted thief named Zhen, a corsac fox (voiced by Awkwafina), to discover the truth about recent sightings of villains he’s defeated in the past. Oscar winner Viola Davis is the voice of the wicked, powerful sorceress The Chameleon.

Falling a spot to No. 3 on the chart was Lionsgate’s Arthur the King, available for premium digital rental and sale starting April 23. Based on a true story, the film follows an unbreakable bond forged between pro adventure racer Michael Light (played by Mark Wahlberg) and a scrappy street dog companion dubbed Arthur over the course of a grueling 10-day, 435-mile racecourse. The Fandango at Home digital release includes the exclusive featurette “Adventure Racing: On Set.”

Reentering the chart at No. 4 was Madame Web, available for digital rental and on sale for digital purchase. Part of Sony’s franchise of “Spider-Man” characters, Madam Web tells the standalone origin story of a Marvel heroine. It stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra Webb, a paramedic in Manhattan who may have clairvoyant abilities. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women destined for powerful futures — if they can all survive a deadly present.

Debuting at No. 5 on the chart was Universal Pictures’ golf-themed drama The Long Game, which became available April 30 for premium digital rental and sale. The film is based on a true story about five young Mexican-American caddies in 1957 who, barred from playing on the courses where they caddied, decided to build their own golf course in the South Texas desert with the help of their superintendent-turned-coach (played by Dennis Quaid). The caddies would go on to shock the golf community by becoming Texas state champions.
