James Cameron has a rival as two Rian Johnson films are huge hits at home

Both of Johnson’s “Knives Out” features score with home viewers, but “Avatar” maestro Cameron also makes an appearance.

James Cameron, you have company. It turns out the “Avatar” filmmaker isn’t the only movie franchise creator to have had a bang during the New Year’s weekend (“Avatar: The Way of Water” has grossed $446 million so far and there are still a lot to do ). Rian Johnson, whose Star Wars episode The Last Jedi grossed $539 million at lower box office prices that same weekend five years ago, is now boasting two Films that were also seen a lot at the weekend.

Its Netflix original Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery tops the streamer’s top ten for its second weekend (and has already cracked the streamer’s all-time top movies), while franchise starter Knives Out (Lionsgate /$3.99) it’s #1 on both iTunes and Google Play, while it ranks 7th on Vudu, which tabulates earnings (which favors higher-priced releases). Meanwhile, 2009’s “Avatar” (Disney/$3.99) is #8 on both iTunes and Google Play.

Glass Onion’s reign at Netflix was embraced when the company previously announced its first weekend topping 35 million global viewers (close to a record, somewhat surprisingly). But it’s possible that December 23-25 ​​(the first three days of the film’s Netflix availability) was less good to watch than other, earlier, original films. In time, the film could become her biggest hit.

Also on Netflix, Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s White Noise, another stellar original, ranked #2. The cast of Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, and Don Cheadle, along with the celebrity of the original novel, could propel this entry, which received significantly worse reviews than the director’s “Marriage Story,” also for Netflix, previously.

In contrast to the theatrical top ten, which changed little over the weekend (although Black Panther: Wakanda Forever ended before the second weeks of Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody and Babylon), were both VOD and Netflix listings looked significantly different than last week. That’s partly due to the near-total absence of classic Christmas titles, which thrived throughout December. But it also saw the impact of price cuts, as well as the continued appeal of several recent hits.

Along with “Knives Out” and “Violent Night” (Universal/$19.99, still #1 on Vudu), three other titles made all three lists. “Top Gun: Maverick” (Paramount/$4.99-$5.99), although now streaming free on Paramount+, had the second-best performance with two spots at #2 and one at #3. “The Woman King” and “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” (both Sony/$5.99) joined them, both with two fourth-place finishes or better.

The only new entry this week is Strange World (Disney/$19.99), whose disappointing theatrical release was partially hampered by expectations of a small window. It also streams on Disney+, making for significant competition. It only landed at number 7 on Vudu.

Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans (Universal/$19.99) only placed #6 on iTunes and again failed to make the top ten on Vudu, where the higher price should speak for it. The film remains vibrant but subdued in theaters, climbing 38 percent over the Christmas weekend last weekend.

Matilda: The Musical, a third Netflix original, is #3 in the streamer’s top ten. The rest of the titles are older theatrical releases, with The Invitation, the newest, coming in at #4.
