‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ Is the Unanimous #1 on VOD Charts

Four (an unusually high number) recent studio theatrical releases added PVOD home availability over the last week. No question which among them scored best — “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” (Disney) took the #1 slot on all charts.

Consumer options vary among the titles. “Indiana Jones” can immediately be digitally downloaded for $19.99. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” (Paramount) is $19.99 for a 48 hour rental, as is “The Last Voyage of the Demeter” (Universal). “Mutant” can be purchased for $24.99. Meanwhile, Disney released “The Boogeyman” at a $14.99 initial rental price.

The rush to open could be related to two factors — holiday viewing, but also the anticipated (but not yet confirmed) release of “Barbie” (Warner Bros.) as early as Tuesday. Presales are available on multiple sites, but none yet list a specific date.

Oddly, only “Indiana Jones” among the four new entries made all three charts. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” was released Friday, which accounts for its absence on Google Play (which usually lags a few days before listing). “Boogeyman” and “Demeter” both placed on two.

Joining “Indiana Jones” across the board were the $19.99 priced “The Meg” (WB) and “Elementary” (Disney), with the former dropping from previous #1 positions on all three. “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (Sony), still at $19.99 also placed on all, as did “No Hard Feelings” (Sony) with a price drop to $5.99. The Jennifer Lawrence-starring comedy is second at both iTunes and Google Play.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” has not reached #1 anywhere yet, with second place on Vudu and third on iTunes. Whatever its relative ranking, figure this to have lengthy appeal to make up for its initial lesser position.

“You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzah” had a shorter run atop Netflix’s movie chart (eight days) even with a much more favorable response than most of their original Adam Sandler comedies. It was replaced by what has become normal for Sony to Netflix transfers. The recent British rom-com “Love Again” with Prijanka Chopra Jonas, Sam Heughan, and Celine Dion (playing herself) barely reached a domestic $6 million gross during its May wide release.

But the streaming transition to Netflix provided the service with a title with familiar names that, in the eyes of many viewers, might at well have been made for the streamer. It led a slew of diverse studio releases on their current top 10 (“Snitch” with Dwayne Johnson #2), with only “The Monkey King” as a second home-grown title on the list.

One curious addition is “Don’t Worry Darling” at #7. Olivia Wilde’s film from just under a year ago with Florence Pugh and Harry Styles comes from Warner Bros., and is also currently streaming on Max. That’s unusual, and a further sign of how important making deals for theatrical titles is for Netflix.
