"Fast & Furious 6" debuted at No. 1 for movies on demand from Dec. 9 to Dec. 15, 2013, according to Rentrak. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in "Fast & Furious 6." Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano. Since the Rio heist led by Dom (played by Diesel) and Brian (played by Walker) toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (played by Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (played by Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (played by Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again. Universal Pictures has announced that a portion of the home-video proceeds from "Fast & Furious 6" will go to Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide. "Fast & Furious 6" was a hit with critics and audiences.

"We're the Millers" dropped from No. 1 to No. 2. A veteran pot dealer (played by Jason Sudeikis) creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico. So he recruits a stripper (played by Jennifer Aniston) and two teen misfits (played by Emma Roberts and Will Poulter) to pose as his wholesome family, who call themselves the Millers. "We're the Millers" also stars Ed Helms, Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn. "We're the Millers" got mostly negative reviews from critics but was a huge hit at the box office.

"2 Guns" fell from No. 2 to No. 3. For 12 months, DEA agent Robert “Bobby” Trench (played by Denzel Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Michael “Stig” Stigman (played by Mark Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Bobby and Stig are suddenly disavowed by their respective superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way. Critics had mixed reactions to "2 Guns," which did solid business at the box office.

"Red 2" dropped from No. 3 to No. 4. In "Red 2," the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they’ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world—and stay alive in the process. Starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung Hun Lee, Brian Cox and Neal McDonough. "Red 2" got mixed-to-negative reviews and did mediocre business at the box office.

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" fell from No. 4 to No. 5. Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (played by Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series. Also starring Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Kevin Durand, Aidan Turner, Jemima West, Godfrey Gao, CCH Pounder, Jared Harris and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" got mostly negative reviews and flopped at the box office.
