Don’t Look Up Netflix Holiday Rankings, Resident Evil Sequel Scores

Watching at home mostly brings replays this holiday, as movie fans get plenty of new productions that only show in theaters.

This weekend, old Christmas-related movies took 15 of the 30 spots out of three VOD chart we listed. That’s a record percentage of non-recent titles, underscoring the absence of current movies showing early at home. Take it as a sign of a return to partial theater dominance, at least for now.

The weak response to most new movies hitting theaters to date beyond “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (Sony) and “Sing 2” (Universal) could be an even bigger boost for key studios. mind their window lengths, or even their original theatrical releases. As always, we have little clue of increased revenue from popular titles at home, but a steady stream of appearances from a number of feature series like “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” (Sony/ $5.99), “Free Guy” (Disney/$5.99) and “No Time to Die” (United Artists/$5.99) raise their potential profits.

All three were among the six films that made all three lists. “Venom” took #1 at Google Play, while “No Time” took the lead at iTunes (this week’s price drop has led to its return to the top three across all charts). In addition, across three charts are seasonal favorites”Grinch” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (both Universal/$3.99) and “Elf” (Warner Bros./$3.99).

Notable this week is the almost complete absence of premium VOD titles, which not only cost three times or more than standard VOD but also earn higher profits for the studios. It seems that this is a rare entertainment segment that does not have high sales during the holidays.

Sony stands out for its powerful projection capabilities not only in theaters with “No Way Home” but also at home. In addition to “Venom” and the more recent “Spider-Man” titles “Homecoming” and “Far from Home” ($3.99 each), Google Play is offering pre-purchases for an unknown date by “No Way Home,” for $19.99 and already at #8.

That takes up seven seats for the studio. The eighth part is “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” ($19.99), is #1 at Vudu. That site, unlike iTunes and Google Play, counts by revenue, not transactions. Also launching on Vudu is “Encanto” (Disney/$19.99), also free for Disney+ subscribers, and the horror title “Antlers” (Searchlight/$14.99).

In its infancy, MGM claimed to have more stars than there were stars in the sky. They have an opponent for that. Netflix’s chart is led by original films starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Tyler Perry, Sandra Bullock, Viola Davis, Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reyolds and Gal Gadot , with others. Their movies are all in the top 4 most watched movies of this weekend on Netflix.

Adam McKay’s newly released climate crisis comedy “Don’t Look Up” instantly hit #1, replacing Bullock’s “The Unforgivable”. “Red Notice,” scorned by some for its reported $200 million budget, has become one of their best performers, displaying atypical pins on the site. . Now in its sixth week, the action-comedy has jumped to #4. That’s unusual for a site where even the most popular originals often disappear after more than a week. A recent case in point: “Dog Power” by Jane Campion.

Netflix’s other new original this week is “Vicky and Her Mystery,” at No. 5. The streamer bought this French-language drama about a girl recovering from her mother’s death in the mountains with with her father, as well as a companion of wild animals. It was recently released theatrically in France and Italy, with domestic availability impossible without this option.
