Projections: 'Resident Evil' Looking to Go Out on Top

22 May, 2017 By: John Latchem



Sony Pictures' Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Paramount's xXx: Return of Xander Cage should debut in the top spots on the home video sales charts the week ending May 21.

The sixth "Resident Evil" film earned $26.8 million at the domestic box office, the lowest of the franchise. However, its core fan base could give it a boost in its first week on disc, similarly to how Sony's Underworld: Blood Wars debuted at No. 1 a few weeks ago.

That being said, it wouldn't be much of a surprise should the third "xXx" entry grab the top spot either, despite a domestic gross of just $44.9 million.

Also lurking around is Universal's Fifty Shades Darker in its second week on disc.

On the weekly rental chart, Universal's Split should take over the top spot after a month-long delay at Redbox kiosks.
