Projections: 'La La Land' Looking for High Note on Disc Charts

1 May, 2017 By: John Latchem



The time has come for Lionsgate's La La Land to convert its considerable awards-season buzz into home video sales, putting it on track to take the top spot the week ending April 30.

The musical romance, which captured six Oscars and a record seven Golden Globes, including Best Actress for Emma Stone, earned $151.1 million at the domestic box office.

The first-week sales of La La Land should be enough to knock Disney's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from the disc sales perch, where it has been for three weeks, most recently holding off a surge from Universal's Split.

Sony Pictures' Underworld: Blood Wars will also look to debut in a decent chart spot. The fifth film in the "Underworld" franchise earned just $30.35 million domestically, the lowest in the series.

The weekly rental chart looks to be dominated by titles coming off 28-day release delays at Redbox kiosks: Fox's Why Him? and Warner's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
