About This Project


August 16, 2021 | This week on the SEA Top 20 VOD Premiere Movies (video on demand) list, the young adult franchise’s final installment The Kissing Booth 3 on Netflix debuted at No. 1. Available in theatres, Warner Bros’ The Suicide Squad (No. 2) and Space Jam: A New Legacy (No. 3) on HBO Max retained their appeal to home entertainment audiences. Amazon’s Jolt saw a big uptick of 8 places to the No. 4 spot. Disney’s Black Widow moved up 4 places to No. 5, becoming the top PVOD/EEST title on the Top 20 VOD Premiere Movies list this week. The next PVOD title, Universal’s F9: The Fast Saga, stood at No. 6. With other titles moving up to the top, Vivo on Netflix shifted down from No. 2 to No. 7 in its second week. From the No. 4 spot and onward, this week’s titles shared a similar viewership.

The top cumulative streaming movies, looking like the previous week, were Amazon’s The Tomorrow War and HBO Max’s Space Jam: A New Legacy at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Taking over the No. 3 spot was HBO Max’s The Suicide Squad. The only new release, The Kissing Booth 3 on Netflix, premiered with a fourth place in cumulative viewership.

*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).
