Rentrak Cross-Platform Entertainment Rankings – Jan. 6, 2016

Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” continues its record-breakingstar-wars-force-awakens-official-poster run at an astounding pace, crossing $1.5 billion globally this weekend. Through Monday, it now stands as the fourth-highest grossing movie of all-time worldwide. Meanwhile, homegrown title “Detective Chinatown” made its mark in the China movie market, earning an impressive $45 million there this weekend.
In North American box office action, the momentum created by a record-breaking Christmas weekend continues as New Year’s weekend’s overall total was just shy of the record $220 million set back in the 2009 into 2010 New Year’s when “Avatar,” in its third weekend, and “Sherlock Holmes,” in its second weekend, propelled strong returns. Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” lead the charge for the third straight weekend adding another $88.3 million and pushed its North American total within striking distance of the all-time North American box office total of $760.5 million by “Avatar.”

tomThe Movies on Demand chart this week was topped by two very different movies with Paramount’s action-packed “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” followed by Universal’s R-rated comedy “Ted 2.”  The top DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales leaders were Universal’s beloved “Minions” followed by a renewed interest in “Star Wars” with “Star wars: The Complete Saga” coming in second place on the chart.
