With ‘The Flash’ Leading VOD, Warner Bros. Discovery Gets Another #1 Film

With a troubled history and soft box office, DC Comics’ “The Flash” ($19.99) on PVOD gives Warner Bros. its second #1 film right now. As “Barbie” comes off a $162 million domestic opening in theaters, “The Flash” takes the top spot at all three VOD charts this week, just over a month after debuting in theaters. Never mind that “Barbie” made more in its opening weekend than “The Flash” did in its under-$110 million domestic run, on a movie with twice the production cost.

In an even quicker turnaround, “Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken” ($19.99), consistent with Universal’s home release strategy after three weekends in theaters, also made all three lists after the animated feature grossed $15 million. Vudu, with a revenue-based chart that favors higher-priced titles, is best at #3.

At some undetermined point, those studios will have massive potential post-theater play films Based on its agreement with Christopher Nolan on “Oppenheimer,” Universal will not execute its standard practice deal of PVOD after five weekends. WB doesn’t have an established pattern but usually the bigger the film, the later the release.

The three platform’s top 10 lists are nearly identical, with only 11 titles among them. These included “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Asteroid City,” “Fast X,” all at $19.99, and “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” and “John Wick: Chapter 4” at $5.99. Universal (with Focus included) returns to it outsized showing, with 13 of the 30 positions held by their films.

“They Cloned Tyrone” led six Netflix originals on the top 10. It stars John Boyega and Jamie Foxx in a comedy about a government conspiracy to experiment on the Black population. Three more new originals on the chart include two documentaries (“The Deepest Breath,” “Unknown: Cave of Bones”) and a Mexican comedy (“The Almost Legends”). The highest-ranked studio film is last week’s #1, “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” at #2.
