About This Project


October 4, 2021 | This week on the SEA Top 20 VOD Premiere Movies (video on demand) list, Warner Bros.’ new day-and-date release The Many Saints of Newark (story of Tony Soprano’s early years) came in at No. 1 over the weekend’s streaming on HBO Max. The box office hit Free Guy (EEST), from 20th Century Studios, premiered at No. 2 following its theatrical win. United Artists Releasing’s animated comedy The Addams Family 2 (PVOD) debuted at No. 3. Warner Bros.’ Reminiscence, shifting to a second window (PVOD/EEST) over the weekend, climbed up to No. 4. Another premiere title from Focus Features, The Card Counter (PVOD), came in at No. 7. The previous top performer, Amazon’s Cinderella, dropped a few spots to No. 5 with new releases coming in. Also dropped on the list are Netflix’s Afterlife of the Party from No. 2 to No. 9, and Lionsgate’s The Protégé (EEST) from No. 3 to No. 15. Meanwhile, HBO Max’s Cry Macho climbed to No. 6 after two weeks’ streaming.

For top cumulative streaming viewership, the No. 1 spot is still held firmly by Amazon’s Cinderella. HBO Max’s Malignant moved up one place to No. 2, switching positions with Paramount’s PAW Patrol: The Movie (EEST/SVOD) which now stood 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).
