For a second consecutive week, Wrath of Man topped the Vudu chart and Cruella led the FandangoNow chart for the week ended July 11.
Both Vudu and FandangoNow are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.
Warner Bros.’ Wrath of Man, newly available for digital purchase, also came in at No. 4 on the FandangoNow chart. Based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck, the actioner pairs director Guy Ritchie with Jason Statham. Statham plays a mysterious new security guard for a cash truck who surprises his co-workers when he unleashes precision skills during a heist. The crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from.
Disney’s Cruella, which became available for premium digital purchase June 25, was also No. 3 on the Vudu chart. The prequel tells the story of the rise of the 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil.
Universal Pictures’ Nobody jumped to No. 2 on the Vudu chart and remained at No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart. The film stars Bob Odenkirk as a family man repressing a dangerous past that resurfaces after he interrupts burglars robbing his home. When he learns his daughter’s kitty bracelet is missing, he snaps and sets off on a mission of revenge looking to vent his deep-seated rage.
Warner’s Angelina Jolie film Those Who Wish Me Dead, newly available for premium rental and sale July 2, came in at No. 2 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 6 on Vudu). Jolie stars as Hannah, a smoke jumper reeling from the loss of three young lives she failed to save from a fire. When she comes across a bloodied and traumatized 12-year-old boy, the two set out together to cross miles of thick forest. Braving deadly lightning storms that challenge even Hannah’s well-honed survival skills, they’re unaware of the true dangers they face as they’re hunted by two killers while a massive fiery blaze heads straight for them.
Universal Pictures/DreamWorks Animation’s Spirit Untamed, available for premium digital rental, came in at No. 3 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 9 on Vudu). The next chapter in the “Spirit” franchise begins as a young girl finds a connection to her mother’s legacy as a trick rider and forms a bond with a wild Mustang named Spirit.
Warner’s Godzilla vs. Kong, available for digital sale and rental, remained at No. 4 on the Vudu chart (No. 6 on FandangoNow). The film, from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, stars Alexander Skarsgård and Millie Bobby Brown. In this installment in the Monsterverse, Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.
No. 5 on the Vudu chart (No. 8 on FandangoNow) was Screen Media’s horror thriller Till Death, starring Megan Fox.
