Plane and M3GAN Show How to Top the VOD Charts: Play Theaters First

Plane and M3GAN Show How to Top the VOD Charts: Play Theaters First ...

The $19.99 “Plane” (Lionsgate) and “M3GAN” (Universal) are leading the VOD charts, followed by Christmas titles “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” (Universal/$24.99) and “Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody” (Sony/$19.99). That’s awesome, after all, considering three of those films are still in the box office top 10.

"Plane" is #1 on iTunes and Vudu and #2 on Google Play, with the order reversed for "M3GAN." "Whitney," new this week, is #3 on Vudu and #7 on iTunes. Perhaps it isn't helped by the website listing it as a "documentary." "Triangle of Sadness" (Neon/$6.99) is the number one on iTunes.

"Legion of Super-Heroes," a DC Comics direct-to-video animated feature, is the only other new entry this week on Vudu. Anna Kendrick's "Alice Darling" (Lionsgate/$6.99), has a second week on all three charts. "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" (Disney/$19.99), also available for Disney+ customers, rounds out the list of titles.

Sadness is a "triangle."

Only "Triangle" was included on any list of special Oscar nominees that depend on high-quality domestic production to supplement theatrical production.

"Your Place or Mine," a rom-com starring Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kushner, continues Netflix's long list of original titles. It was an instant #1 upon its weekend release ahead of Valentine's Day. Similar to "Glass Onion," "The Pale Blue Eye," and "You People," these are films that may have dominated the theaters in the past.

"Minions: The Rise of Gru" stayed on the top for a few days. In recent times, a huge family hit within a few months of theater and VOD play might have dominated the list for weeks. It may be there for a while (it's now #2), but this is proof of Netflix's recent original movies.
