Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 1984 held at No. 1 on the “Watched at Home” chart the week ended April 10.
The DC-comic-based film, repeating in the top spot for a second week, continued to get a boost from its arrival on Blu-ray and DVD March 30 after being released though digital retailers on March 16 (a release preceded by PVOD and a simultaneous Christmas Day 2020 debut in theaters and on streaming service HBO Max).
News of the World, The Croods: A New Age and Monster Hunter all repeated in spots two through four, in order, from the previous week. The Oscar-nominated Promising Young Woman, which jumped from No. 6, rounded out the top five.
The comedy Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar, co-starring and co-written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo (Bridesmaids), entered the chart at No. 10 after coming out on Blu-ray and DVD April 6. Also new to the chart for the week was Willy’s Wonderland, starring Nicolas Cage, dropping in at No. 11. Shadow in the Cloud, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as a World War II flight officer on a secret mission when her bomber is attacked by gremlins, returned at No. 18 after its April 6 DVD and Blu-ray release in an otherwise steady chart.
The Watched at Home chart, compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental).
The Western News of the World (No. 2) stars Tom Hanks as a Civil War veteran who makes a living reading newspapers to people in frontier towns and is tasked with returning a young white girl who had been captured and raised by Indians to her family.
Universal Pictures’ DreamWorks Animation sequel The Croods: A New Age (No. 3) features the voices of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Peter Dinklage and follows the caveman Crood family as they encounter the more civilized Bettermans.
Sony Pictures’ video game adaptation Monster Hunter (No. 4) stars Milla Jovovich as the leader of a military unit battling deadly creatures from another world.
Promising Young Woman (No. 5), nominated for five Oscars, stars Carey Mulligan as Cassie, whose promising future was derailed by a mysterious event.
