"The Machine"

‘The Machine’ Surpasses New VOD Releases, But ‘John Wick’, ‘Fast X’ and ‘Super Mario’ Remain Strong

In VOD charts, action rules. A recent price drop to $5.99 has propelled “John Wick: Chapter 4” (Lionsgate) to maintain the top positions on iTunes and Google Play, while Vudu has kept “Fast X” (Universal) at the top position. “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” (Universal), price now reduced to $19.99 (including download) ranked second across all three sites.

The new entry “The Machine” (Sony), an action comedy starring Bert Kreischer, who adapts his semi-bio stand-up routine here, ranks third on Vudu at $19.99 as it places across three charts. It hit home after its fourth weekend in theaters, where it only garnered $10 million in box office receipts.

After a recent spate of theatrical releases dominating Netflix’s Top Ten Movies chart, their homegrown titles grabbed six slots this week. “Extraction 2” repeats at number 1, with their usual eclectic mix taking up other slots.

“Fast X” joined “John Wick”, “Super Mario” and “The Machine” on all three charts, as well as “The Covenant” (MGM) and “Kandahar” (Open Road). The other new entry is “The Black Demon”. The $5.99 upright version stars Josh Lucas battling a shark in Baja California. He is located at number 8 of Vudu.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” will hit PVOD on July 9, but iTunes is already listing pre-sales, where it ranks ninth. If more sets were included in our charts, then the four-pack of previous “Indiana Jones” movies, now owned by Disney, not Paramount, would be #5 on iTunes for $19.99.

In addition to the repeat of the original “Extraction” (currently #5), three other romantic titles from different countries and a documentary recently presented at the Tribeca Festival have debuted as Netflix productions. The medical themed doc “Take Care of Maya” is number 4.
