Melissa McCarthy Is Redbox’s Top-Rented Actress of 2013

Melissa McCarthy Is Redbox's Top-Rented Actress of 2013

Melissa McCarthy gave the male demo a swift kick-in-the-pants this year while proving her box office bankability in her raucous comedies “Identity Thief” and “The Heat.” The brazen comedienne is now Redbox’s top-rented actress of 2013, and the two films are the DVD/Blu-ray kiosk’s top-rented movies of the year.

But audiences still love a good ole-fashioned soulless macho action flick starring a washed-up, middling movie star because Bruce Willis is Redbox’s top-rented male actor of the year. Though as you’ll see below, he didn’t star in any of the company’s top ten rented movies. 

With the exception of 2012 awards hopefuls “Django Unchained” and “Flight” (the year’s top-rented drama), the top-rented films are summer or spring blockbusters and tentpoles (does anyone remember “Here Comes the Boom”?). And it looks like Roland Emmerich’s flop “White House Down” has done better on the home video market. Here’s the Redbox top ten of 2013:

1.   “Identity Thief

2.   “The Heat”

3.   “World War Z”

4.   “Flight”

5.  “Olympus Has Fallen”

6.   “Django Unchained”

7.   “Grown Ups 2”

8.   “White House Down”

9.   “Here Comes the Boom”

10. “Now You See Me”
