FAN-FAVORITE TITLES JOIN THE LATEST DEG
“WATCHED AT HOME” TOP 20 LIST
Paramount’s three seasons of Yellowstone take back the top three spots in the DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group’s ‘‘Watched at Home Top 20’ list, dropping Universal’s Trolls World Tour out of the top 5 for the first time since entering the chart in late June. Consumers sought out Disney’s Black Panther to remember Chadwick Boseman, who passed away after a battle with cancer, making the groundbreaking superhero movie No. 9 on the chart. MGM’s Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure joined the list at No. 13 and 14, respectively, fueled by buzz for the franchise’s latest installment Bill & Ted Face the Music.
DEG compiles the ‘Watched at Home Top 20’ list with the most widely consumed titles on disc and digital during the previous week (except for outside subscription-based streaming platforms).
