‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Takes Over Redbox Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Wonder Woman 1984 debuted at No. 1 on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended April 4, and also moved into the top spot on the Redbox On Demand chart for the week.

The film arrived on Blu-ray and DVD formats March 30 after becoming the beta test for WarnerMedia’s bold strategy of releasing its film slate in theaters with simultaneous month-long availability on HBO Max. Premiering on Christmas, it earned $46.11 million at the domestic box office before bowing on PVOD in February.

The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot reprising the superheroine, this time coming up against a corrupt businessman in the 1980s who gains the power to grant wishes from a magical stone.

The previous week’s top Redbox title, Universal Pictures’ News of the World, slid to No. 2 on both charts. The Western stars Tom Hanks as a Civil War veteran who makes a living reading newspapers to people in frontier towns, whose travels get sidetracked when he is encounters a young white girl who had been captured and raised by Indians, and is tasked with returning her to her family.

That pushed Universal’s The Croods: A New Age to the No. 3 spot on both charts.

The No. 4 title on the disc rental chart, which tracks DVD and Blu-ray Disc rentals at Redbox’s more than 40,000 red kiosks, was the Redbox exclusive The Seventh Day, a horror film starring Guy Pearce. It tells the story of a renowned exorcist who teams up with a rookie priest to battle demons. The Seventh Day was No. 10 on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital rental transactions.

The No. 5 digital title was the newly released The Vault, a heist film from Paramount that stars Freddie Highmore. It was released on VOD March 26.

Other newcomers on the disc rental chart include No. 7 Our Friend, a drama from Universal about a man who moves in with his best friend’s family when his friend’s wife is diagnosed with cancer; and No. 10 The Toll, from Lionsgate, about a cab that wanders onto a dark route where the driver and passenger are stalked by a mysterious presence.
