PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak (NASDAQ: RENT), the leader in precisely measuring movies and TV everywhere, today announced the top weekly cross-platform entertainment rankings for Nov. 18, 2015.
An amazing continued run for Sony's "Spectre" at the global box office is realized with $188 million in 92 territories, including North America, where the 24th Bond movie was number one for the second consecutive weekend, adding another $33.7 million. An astounding $48 million in China this weekend gives this Bond the biggest opening weekend (F-S-S) of all time for a 2D U.S. movie in this all-important marketplace.
Disney's release of Pixar's critically acclaimed "Inside Out" certainly got inside the minds of small screen viewers as it debuted on both Rentrak's Movies on Demand and DVD and Blu-Ray Disc sales charts in the number one spot. Dwayne Johnson in "San Andreas" led DVD and Blu-Ray rentals, while Adam Sandler in "Pixels," the nostalgic walk down video game memory lane, dominated our digital purchases and rentals chart.
CBS's long-time favorite, the original "NCIS," had the most engaged viewers this week in broadcast, while AMC's "The Walking Dead" remains a big hit on cable, but was followed closely this week by "The Republican Presidential Debate" on CNBC. Wrapping up this week's highlights, NBC's "The Voice" uploaded a Digital Exclusive on YouTube of "Rihanna on The Voice" which garnered 457k+ views.
