Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 1984 flew to the top spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended April 3.
The film, which leapt from No. 6 the previous week, got a boost from its arrival on Blu-ray and DVD March 30 after being released on digital March 16 (preceded by PVOD release and simultaneous release in theaters and on streaming service HBO Max).
News of the World, The Croods: A New Age, Monster Hunter and Soul all fell one spot, in order, from the previous week to round out the top five spots.
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.
Disney’s Soul (No. 5) is a Pixar Animation Studios film that as a result of the pandemic bypassed theaters and was released directly through the Disney+ streaming service Dec. 25. Soul was made available on disc and digital sellthrough March 23.
Meanwhile, Paramount’s classic The Ten Commandments, director Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 epic starring Charlton Heston, entered the chart at No. 10 following its 4K Ultra HD disc debut March 30.
The 2019 monster flick Godzilla: King of the Monsters also entered the chart at No. 12 for the week, drafting off the theatrical and HBO Max release of Godzilla vs. Kong.
