News Stories About Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 14th, 2012

2012-02-14

It's a really slow week at the box office with only one first run release, The Rum Diary, and it bombed in theaters. Paranormal Activity 3 is coming out on DVD this week, but it came out on Blu-ray a few weeks ago, so it is not much of a factor in terms of sales this week. In fact, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 will likely lead the sales charts, despite coming out on Saturday. As for the best of the new releases, Take Shelter on DVD or Blu-ray is probably the best, but I'm still waiting for the screener to confirm that.

Per Theater Chart Goes Through Hell

2011-10-12

There were no films that reached the $10,000 mark on this week's per theater chart. The film that came closest was Real Steel with an average of $7,942, which is good for a wide release, but disappointing for the top film on the per theater chart. The best limited release was Munger Road with an average of $5,675 during its second week of release. This is excellent for the genre and bodes well for its home market run. As for the best new limited release, that was Hell and Back Again with just $3,413 in its lone theater. It's hard to put a good spin on that result.

Limited Releases and Going to Hell and Back

2011-10-07

There are quite a few releases on this week's list that are opening with stronger buzz than the average limited release manages. However, none of the higher profile films are earning better than average reviews. Maybe one of them will be able to ride the buzz to a strong opening weekend before word-of-mouth catches up to them, but there's also a chance none of them will attract a sizable audience over the weekend. There are two films earning perfect review at the moment, Hell and Back Again and Flying Monsters 3D, but that might not be enough for either to find an audience, since they are both documentaries.
