‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Dominates VOD Again, but Here’s Your Oscar Surge

Oscar winners "Dune," "Belfast," and "King Richard" all placed high on VOD this week; so did "Licorice Pizza."

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” (Sony/$19.99) scored a second of what will be likely many weeks atop VOD charts. That comes after the film reached $800 million in domestic box office and it’s about to enter its fifth month in theaters.

Little else changed this week, with fewer films than usual finding positions on all three iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu charts. “Sing 2” (Universal/$19.99), high on all charts again, has spent more than three months at a $19.99 or higher. Like “Spider-Man,” it still ranked in the top 10 this weekend.

“Dog” (United Artists/$19.99), a much more recent release and #7 in theaters, was the third across-the-board placer. The only new entry of note was “Panama” (Saban/$6.99), an action thriller about an arms dealer in the country during the invasion. It costars Mel Gibson, with Mark Neveldine (“Crank,” “Gamer”) directing. It placed on two charts.

Four Best Picture nominees showed up on at least one chart. “Dune” (Warner Bros./$7.99) benefited from a just-reduced price (like “Sing 2,” it had phenomenal higher-priced interest) was #2 at Google Play. “Licorice Pizza” (United Artists) placed third at iTunes. “Belfast” (Focus/$5.99) and “King Richard” (Warner Bros./$5.99) were #2 and #4, respectively, on iTunes.

Speaking of Denis Villeneuve, “Blade Runner 2049” showed up at #1 at Netflix, displacing Ryan Reynolds vehicle “The Adam Project” after two weeks. Long-term deals Netflix made years ago; Warner Bros., like Universal (“Despicable Me”) and Disney (“Shrek”), continue to be the source for much of the streamer’s most-watched movies.
