March 26th, 2015

As expected, Insurgent earned first place on the international chart earning $48.4 million on 10,187 screens in 76 markets. The film's biggest market was France, where it opened in first place with $6 million, while it made $4.37 million in 497 theaters in the U.K. earning first place there as well. Its best growth came from Brazil, where it nearly tripled the first film with $4.2 million. The film had to settle for second place in Russia with $3.76 million on 1,570 screens, but that was still close to 20% more than its predecessor opened with. More...

Per Theater Chart: Danny Boy

March 25th, 2015

Danny Collins led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $14,631 in five theaters. However, since its reviews are merely good and not great, I doubt it will have the legs needed to thrive in limited release. The overall box office leader, Insurgent, was next with an average of $13,487. Last week's winner on the per theater chart, It Follows, was the only holdover in the $10,000 club earning an average of $10,777 in 32 theaters. It has room to grow and should have no trouble earning a least some small measure of mainstream success. Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter was the only other film that did well, with an average of $8,529 in four theaters over the weekend, while it earned an average of $10,101 since Wednesday. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 24th, 2015

March 24th, 2015

There are three $100 million theatrical hits arriving on the home market this week, which is amazing. However, that's really all that's coming out this week. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the biggest of these three hits, but it wasn't the best. The best is Into the Woods and given the lack of competition, the DVD or Blu-ray is the Pick of the Week. More...

Weekend Wrap-Up: Insurgent Dips from Divergent

March 24th, 2015

Insurgent poster

As expected, Insurgent led the way at the box office; however, it didn't live up to Divergent's opening from last year. Worse still, both The Gunman and Do You Believe? failed to match low expectations. Overall, the box office did dip from last week, but by less than $1 million or 0.5%. Its decline from last year was more troublesome at 7.3%. Year-to-date, 2015 is still ahead of 2014, but by only 2.2% at $2.18 billion to $2.13 billion. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Into the Woods

March 23rd, 2015

Into the Woods first debuted 30 years ago in 1985 starting its Broadway run a year later. The show's original Broadway run earned three Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards, while the 2002 revival was nearly as well received with award voters. It is not a surprise that the film was turned into a big budget musical. However, does the theatrical version of Into the Woods live up to the source material? Will fans of musicals who haven't seen the original like it? More...

Weekend Estimates: Insurgent Matches Divergent’s Debut

March 22nd, 2015

Insurgent poster

A mix of positive and negative factors (poor reviews vs. fan loyalty, competition vs. Spring break and so on) are neatly canceling one another out this weekend to give Insurgent an opening weekend almost perfectly in line with the $54.6 million debut enjoyed by Divergent this time last year. Lionsgate is officially projecting a $54 million weekend. The numbers we’re seeing suggest the film will end up a shade lower than that—perhaps $53 million would be a safer bet—but either way, it’s an impressive start, and the fifth-best weekend of 2015 so far.

Home Market Numbers: Home Market Slips Despite Hunger's Opening

March 22nd, 2015

Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 was the best of the new releases and won the race to top spot on the Blu-ray Sales Chart. Unfortunately, it wasn't strong enough to help the overall Blu-ray sales, which were down across the board. Compared to last week, sales were down 17% in terms of units and 12% in terms of revenue. Compared to last year, sales were down 15% in terms of units and 14% in terms of revenue. You can't blame Mockingjay here, as it topped Catching Fire. There was just no depth this time. As expected, the overall Blu-ray slipped a bit dropping to 52%, but this is still a fantastic number. More...

DVD Sales: Mockingjay Leaves DVD Sales a Little Hungry

March 22nd, 2015

There was a flood of new releases on this week's DVD sales chart, including five of the top six best-sellers for the week. Leading the way was Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 with 718,000 units / $9.98 million. This is well below what Catching Fire opened with, but still enough to keep the studio happy. More...
