About This Project


September 27, 2021 | This week on the SEA Top 20 VOD Premiere Movies (video on demand) list, two Labor Day weekend SVOD titles rebounded to the top: Amazon’s Cinderella won the No. 1 spot again, and Netflix’s Afterlife of the Party (pictured r.) moved up to No. 2 for the first time. Lionsgate’s The Protégé (EEST) debuted at No. 3. Paramount’s PAW Patrol: The Movie, streaming on Paramount+ and debuting on its second window (EEST), climbed six places to No. 7. Meanwhile, last week’s new releases all dropped a few or more spots. Universal’s Candyman (PVOD) dropped slightly, now sitting at No. 4; Amazon’s Everybody’s Talking About Jamie shifted down to No. 8; Warner Bros.’ day-and-date release on HBO Max, Cry Macho, pulled back to No. 13, and another HBO Max title ,The Suicide Squad (PVOD/EEST), dropped from the top to No. 15.

For top cumulative streaming viewership, Amazon’s Cinderella held the top spot (No. 1) firmly. Paramount’s PAW Patrol: The Movie stood at No. 2 with a solid performance, ahead of HBO Max’s Malignant (No. 3) and The Suicide Squad (No. 4).

*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).
