DVD Sales - Snow Kidding

February 18th, 2008

There were plenty of new releases this week and five of them managed to squeeze into the top five on the sales chart. However, the new number one came as a complete surprise as Snow Buddies sold 1.23 million units during the week for sales of $22.29 million. That's almost as much as the rest of the top five combined. More...

DVD Rentals - Hat Trick for Game Plan

February 18th, 2008

There were plenty of new releases to chart this week on the rental chart, but The Game Plan remained in first place for the third week in a row with $7.41 million for the week and $26.08 million after three. More...

DVD Releases for February 5, 2008 - Part I

February 4th, 2008

A big list this week with plenty releases, so many releases that we had to split the DVD Release Report into two parts. And there also includes many that are worth adding to your DVD collection. However, it is soft at the very top and there are none that jump out as obvious DVD Pick of the Week contenders. That will change next week. More...

Awards Season - No Shortage of Love for Country or Blood

January 22nd, 2008

The Oscar nominations were announced today and there is no shortage of contenders. In fact, with no real juggernaut to deal with, the competition is more up in the air that most years. More...

Award Season - Globes Spread the Love Around

December 13th, 2007

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their Golden Globe nominations this week, but there were no truly dominate films out of the 14 theatrical categories. More...

Gangster's Future is Now on the Per Theater Chart

November 6th, 2007

The overall box office leader, American Gangster, was also the champion on the per theater chart with $14,265. The only other film to crack $10,000 was Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten with an average of $10,440 in two theaters. More...

Still in Control on the Per Theater Chart

October 23rd, 2007

While there were plenty of new releases this past weekend, most failed to make an impact at the box office and that left Control an opportunity to capture first place with $19,121. This represents a drop-off of only 30% in its per theater average despite doubling its theater count. Meanwhile, Wristcutters: A Love Story opened in second place with an average of $14,269 in three theaters. Finally, Blade Runner managed more than $10,000 on the per theater chart for the third weekend in a row with $13,004. More...

Blade Runner Controls the Per Theater Chart

October 16th, 2007

Blade Runner climbed into first place on the Per Theater Chart with an average of $32,681 in two theaters during its second week of re-release. Control debuted in second place with $27,674 in its one theater. Lars and the Real Girl opened with just over $90,000 in 7 theaters for an average of $12,917. This is a good start, better than most limited releases can hope for, but less than I was expecting. The Darjeeling Limited continues to perform marvelously as it expands as it earned an average of $11,425 in nearly 100 theaters. The overall box office leader, Why Did I Get Married? opened with an average of $10,618. More...

Nothing Limited About the Per Theater Chart

October 2nd, 2007

The Darjeeling Limited was the top pick for limited releases over the weekend, earning nearly $140,000 in just two theaters for an average of $67,469. This is the best opening for a Wes Anderson film since The Royal Tenenbaums, at least in terms of raw dollars, and this film still earned a better average. Second place went to Lust, Caution with $63,918, which is one of the best averages we've seen all year. Into the Wild performed marvelously during its expansion this past weekend, earning an average of $19,135 in 33 theaters. On the other hand, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford fell nearly 40% without any expansion; it still earned an average of $18,470 in five theaters, but I was expecting more given its start. Finally, Itty Bitty Titty Committee opened with $11,505 in its lone theater. More...

Per Theater Chart Goes Wild

September 25th, 2007

Into the Wild took top prize on the per theater chart earning an average of $53,110 in four theaters. The only other film to top $10,000 was The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford with nearly $150,000 in 5 theaters for an average of $29,562. More...

Promise Kept on Per Theater Chart

September 18th, 2007

While no wide release cracked $5000 on the per theater chart, three limited released topped $10,000, two by massive margins. This was led by possible Oscar contender, Eastern Promises, which pulled in an impressive $550,000 in 15 theaters for an average of $36,473. Meanwhile, Across the Universe opened in more theaters, 23, but to a smaller average, $29,034. Finally, In the Valley of Elah managed an average of $14,840 in 9. More...

Movie Website Updates for September 9 - September 15, 2007

September 16th, 2007

A stronger week for website than we've seen in a few weeks, including the launch of a potential fall blockbuster. However, that site is mostly marked coming soon allowing Elizabeth - The Golden Age - Official Site to take the Weekly Website Award this week. More...

Few Limited Releases Show Promise

September 14th, 2007

Dozen films on this week's list, but only Eastern Promises has a clear shot at mainstream success. A couple others might do well on the art house circuit, while most won't find an audience till the home market, if that. More...

2007 Preview: September

September 1st, 2007

After a record-breaking summer, we come to the worst month of the year. There are a few films that look promising, but for the most part the month is filled with projects that should probably never been given the greenlight to begin with. September is a dumping ground for failed projects, and like most similar times of the year, it is crowded with 20 movies that at least have a shot at opening or expanding wide over a period of just four weeks. Five new releases a week is far too many, even if they were all high quality at least half will fail just due to the competition. More...

New Movie US Release Dates - August 5, 2007

August 5th, 2007

This week's round of new movie release information contains release dates for Fame, Watchmen, Shrek 4 and more. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 29 - August 4, 2007

August 5th, 2007

Another big list of movie sites, but not much in the way of top-notch entries. For a movie site to be an award winner, I expect it to have all of the usual features, extras like clips, something interactive like a game, and background sound and animation. The film that best exemplifies that criteria is Stardust - Official Site, which is the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 8 - July 14, 2007

July 14th, 2007

One of the last summer blockbusters launched its full site this week. This means two things, The Bourne Ultimatum - Official Site is the clear winner of the weekly website award. And secondly, there will likely be a slowdown in top-notch sites as we approach the dog days of summer, and the even worse days of September. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 3 - February 9, 2007

February 9th, 2007

Still waiting sites for the big summer blockbusters to come online. In the meantime, this week is relatively busy, but with only a couple sites that look like they could be award-worthy once the features are added. The best of the best, and I use that term loosely, is Norbit - Official Site with a site that could be more entertaining than the movie it promotes. More...

New Movie US Release Dates - February 4, 2007

February 4th, 2007

This week's round of new movie release information contains release dates for The Waterhorse, Across the Universe and more. More...

Movie Website Updates for January 20 - January 26, 2007

January 26th, 2007

This year's crop of summer blockbusters still haven't started opening movies site in earnest yet, and until they do, this column will be lacking. It's yet another week without a truly award-winning site but Catch & Release - Official Site is the best of the rest. More...
