"Lone Survivor" debuted at No. 1 for movies on demand from June 2 to June 8, 2014, according to Rentrak. Based on a true story, "Lone Survivor" tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs who get trapped in the mountains of Afghanistan, leading them into an enemy ambush. The all-star cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana. "Lone Survivor" got mostly positive reviews from critics and was a hit at the box office.
"RoboCop" debuted at No. 2. In "RoboCop," the year is 2028, and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years, but have been forbidden for law enforcement in America. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (played by Joel Kinnaman) — a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit — is critically injured, OmniCorp sees their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine. This "RoboCop" remake got mixed reviews and was considered a disappointment at the box office.
"3 Days to Kill" fell from No. 2 to No. 3. In this action thriller (directed by McG), Kevin Costner is a dangerous international spy, who is determined to give up his high stakes life to finally build a closer relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger. But first, he must complete one last mission — even if it means juggling the two toughest assignments yet: hunting down the world’s most ruthless terrorist and looking after his teenage daughter for the first time in ten years, while his wife is out of town. Also starring Amber Heard, Hailee Steinfeld and Connie Nielsen. "3 Days to Kill" was a flop with critics and in movie theaters.
"The Monuments Men" dropped from No. 1 to No. 4. Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, "The Monuments Men" (directed and co-written by George Clooney, who also stars in the film) is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys — seven museum directors, curators and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 — possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements. Also starring Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, Cate Blanchett, Hugh Bonneville and Jean Dujardin. "The Monuments Men" got mostly negative reviews from critics but was a solid hit at the box office.
"Frozen" held steady at No. 5. In the animated musical “Frozen,” Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and save their kingdom from eternal winter. "Frozen" won two Oscars: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (for "Let It Go"). "Frozen" got excellent reviews from critics and now holds the record for the highest-grossing animated film of all time.
