Projections: 'SpongeBob' Seeking Top Spot on Disc Charts

8 Jun, 2015 By: John Latchem



Paramount's The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is poised to top both the disc sales and rental charts the week ending June 7.

The film, the second based on the popular Nickelodeon animated series, was a huge hit in U.S. theaters with a $163 million gross, almost twice as much as its predecessor.

It's also more than $100 million more than any of the other new releases during the week. The top other titles vying for a top chart spot include the widely panned sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending and the heist comedy Focus, both from Warner, and Disney's McFarland USA.

SpongeBob is also in line to top the rental chart for the week. Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey comes off its 28-day holdback at Redbox and is also looking to move into a top spot.
