"We're the Millers" rose from No. 7 to at No. 1 for movie digital sales and rentals from Nov. 18 to Nov. 24, 2013, according to Rentrak. The list includes Internet Video on Demand (iVOD) and Electronic Sell-Through (EST), for both Standard-Definition and Digital HD movie purchases and rentals. (Rentrak's chart for movies on demand is a chart that ranks movies rented through traditional TV outlets.) 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.

"Man of Steel" dropped from No. 1 to No. 2. A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind. Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue and Russell Crowe. "Man of Steel" got mixed reviews from critics, but that didn't stop the movie from being one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.

"The Wolverine" debuted at No. 3. Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality. "The Wolverine" got mostly positive reviews from critics and was a big hit in movie theaters.

"Planes" debuted at No. 4. From above the world of “Cars” comes “Planes,” an action-packed 3-D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing — and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar. "Planes" got mostly negative reviews from critics, but it was still a hit at the box office.

"Turbo" fell from No. 2 to No. 5. From the makers of "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda," "Turbo" is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500. Featuring the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Ken Jeong, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson. "Turbo" got mixed reviews and did mediocre business at the box office.
