Screen Engine/ASI Top 20 VOD Premiere Movies* 10.25.21: ‘Dune’ Climbs to Top in Simultaneous Release

About This Project


October 25, 2021 | This week on the SEA Top 20 VOD Premiere Movies (video on demand) list, Warner Bros.’ theatrical and HBO Max simultaneous release Dune, an adaptation to the classic 1965 novel of the same name, topped the list with strong viewership (No. 1). Warner Bros.’ Malignant (entering the PVOD/EEST window) came in at No. 2, ahead of a second week title Universal’s Halloween Kills (streaming on Peacock) at No. 3. Amazon’s Everybody’s Talking About Jamie sat at No. 4, while another Universal title Candyman (PVOD) moved up to No. 5. On their second week, Open Road Film’s Copshop (PVOD) and Universal’s Dear Evan Hansen (PVOD) both dropped on the list—Copshop from No. 2 to No. 10, and Dear Evan Hansen from No. 3 to No. 14. Lionsgate’s The Protégé (EEST) also moved down to No. 17.

For top cumulative streaming viewership, Universal’s Halloween Kills took over the top spot (No. 1) after two weeks’ streaming, ahead of Warner Bros.’ The Suicide Squad (PVOD/EEST) at No. 2, and HBO Max’s Dune at No. 3.

*Screen Engine/ASI’s Weekly Top Watched VOD Premiere Movies list is based on the incidence of respondents from the syndicated weekly PostVODTM online survey where they state which movies they viewed and how recently from a list of recently released VOD movies, in the past six weeks, including PVOD (Premium Video-On-Demand), EEST (Early Electronic Sell Thru), or SVOD (Subscription Video-On-Demand).
