As theaters struggle without new releases, the VOD charts look a lot like the top 10 at the box office.

It’s Labor Day weekend, more than three months after “Top Gun: Maverick” (Paramount) rose to No. 1 in theaters over Memorial Day weekend, and it’s No. 1 thanks to no competition and the September 5 boost of $3 National Cinema tickets. Day.

As for those who didn’t go to theaters, many selected “Maverick” at $19.99 to download and watch at home. It spent the second of what will likely be many weeks at the top of all VOD charts.
