Awards Season: And the Oscars go to... The King's Speech for Best Picture

February 27th, 2011

The Oscar are being handed out tonight and we will be going over the winners as they are announced and giving a few reactions, perhaps there will be a few surprises along the way. This story will be updated as the winners are announced, so check back throughout the evening to see if The King's Speech will be this year's winner, or if The Social Network will manage the upset. Plus there are many other potentially interesting results ahead. More...

Awards Season: Oscars Offer a Truly Regal Performance

January 25th, 2011

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, thus ending months of speculation. Along with a (very) few surprises, the list of nominees is mostly a case of Deja Vu. Leading the way, as it has so often this year, was The King's Speech, with 12 nominations, including six in seven of the most prestigious categories (Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, and the four acting categories). But it was far from the only multi-nominated film on the list. More...

Awards Season - King of the Globes, or at Least the Nominations

December 14th, 2010

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations early this morning, and there are some interesting surprises included in the mix. Leading the way was The King's Speech, which has long been seen as one of the major players this Awards Season. Meanwhile, The Fighter and The Social Network were right behind with six each. There were many, many other films nomination, including more than a few shocks. ... Mostly in one category. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for December 7th, 2010

December 6th, 2010

It's the first Tuesday of December, and the last real week with multiple major releases. After this, the next few weeks are rather shallow in terms of first run releases. This week there are a number of titles that are worth adding to you collection, including the Pick of the Week, Inception on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack. Restrepo is also worthy of consideration for that honor, as was either of the Criterion Collection releases, Cronos and Videodrome. More...

DVD Sales: Not the Finest Week on the Home Market

July 20th, 2010

It has been a full month since we had any real activity on the sales chart, and this is starting to take its toll on the overall numbers. New releases were almost nonexistent at the box office, but one of them, Brooklyn's Finest, still managed to top the sales chart this week, albeit with just 297,000 units sold and $4.63 million in consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD Sales: New Releases Light Up the Sales Chart

July 13th, 2010

A trio of new releases led the way on the sales chart this week with Percy & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief topping the chart. It sold 823,000 units over its opening week for consumer spending at retail of $13.99 million. More...

DVD Sales: New Releases Fail to Pull in the Green

July 7th, 2010

Only a handful of new releases reached the top 30 on the sales chart this week, and none of them were able to dethrown The Book of Eli. The DVD sold an additional 291,000 units for the week to lift its total to 1.08 million units and $24.04 million in consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD Sales: Booking Top Spot on the Chart

June 29th, 2010

Few new releases reached the top 30 on the sales chart this week, but one of them, The Book of Eli, led the way with 789,000 units / $17.62 million in opening week consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD Sales: Alice Shuts Out New Releases

June 22nd, 2010

No new release was able to take top spot on this week's sales chart leaving Alice in Wonderland as the repeat champion. It added $12.34 million from 657,000 units sold to take its two-week totals to 2.75 million units and $52.47 million in consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD Sales: "Wonder" Lands on Top

June 14th, 2010

There was a quartet of new releases that reached the top 30 on this week's sales chart, starting with the new number one film, Alice in Wonderland. The $1 billion hit sold 2.10 million units during its first week of release, generating sales of $40.13 million. It just missed the top ten for 2010 (one of the films ahead of it was actually released in 2009). More...

International Details: Box Office as a Strong Indian Flavor

June 13th, 2010

Rajneeti was the second Indian film within a few weeks to open strong on the global scene. Internationally, it earned third place with $11.01 million on 925 screens in 16 markets, which is an excellent start for this type of film. After Kites opened respectively well, it quickly collapsed. Thanks to a higher than average production budget, it will end up costing the studio money. However, this film is already well on its way to profitability and hopefully it will show much better legs. More...

International Details: Sex Debuts in Second

June 6th, 2010

Sex and the City 2 started its international run in second place with $23.98 million on 2739 screens in 18 markets for a total opening of $27.11 million. The film's biggest opening came in the U.K., where it made $8.93 million on 530 screens, 24% more than the original's opening. It had the biggest opening of the year in Germany with $5.90 million on 736 screens over the weekend for a total of $7.72 million. This was 23% higher than the original managed. On the other hand, it only saw 4% growth in Italy, with $2.4 million on 499 screens. This is not enough to keep pace with inflation. However, it is still better than it managed here. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 1st, 2010

June 2nd, 2010

This should be a strong week for DVD sales, as Alice in Wonderland hits the home market. While the $1 billion blockbuster is leading the way in terms of sales, it isn't the best release on this week's list. That would be Life (the version narrated by David Attenborough) on DVD or Blu-ray. Both formats of the show are excellent value, but the high definition is worth paying extra for and is our Pick of the Week. On a side note, there are two other releases that could vie for Pick of the Week, The Man with No Name Trilogy on Blu-ray and Burn Notice: Season Three. We'll have more on those when the screeners arrive. More...

International Details: Iron Shines Brighter than Predecessor

May 30th, 2010

Iron Man 2 is starting to see sharp declines in its theater count, but it still hit a major milestone during the past weekend. It added $13.90 million on 8739 screens in 55 markets for a total of $269.30 million internationally, which is just ahead of the total earned by Iron Man. Additionally, the film reached the half billion dollar mark with total ticket sales of $520.32 million worldwide. By the time it opened in Japan on the 11th, it will have surpassed its predecessor on the worldwide stage, while it has likely already broken even at this point. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Alice in Wonderland

May 27th, 2010

It appears that this weekend Alice in Wonderland will cross the $1 billion milestone at the worldwide box office making it just the sixth film to do so. It set a number of box office records during its run, including biggest weekend in March, biggest single day in March, etc. Granted, a lot of this was earned on 3D screens with all of the extra money that brings in, but this is still a huge amount of money. That said, not every movie that makes a bundle at the box office is worthy of its success, so how well can Alice in Wonderland fare in this regard? More...

International Details: Iron No Longer Golden, But Still Rich

May 23rd, 2010

Iron Man 2 slipped to second place with $30.47 million on 10,223 screens in 57 markets for a total of $245.75 million internationally and $456.95 million worldwide. While this is impressive, its per theater average has become very weak and the competition is heating up. Look for sharp declines in the film's screen count over the next few weeks. That said, the original Iron Man earned a total of $264 million internationally and it is likely that the sequel has already topped that figure. It has also likely topped $500 million worldwide, while $600 million globally is a safe bet, so there's no reason for the studio to worry about shedding screens at this point. The film's biggest individual market so far is still the U.K. where it has made $25.80 million, including $2.30 million on 491 screens this past weekend. South Korea is right behind with $2.11 million on 600 screens over the weekend and $25.27 million after two. More...

International Details: Another Milestone for Alice

May 16th, 2010

For the fourth weekend in a row, Alice in Wonderland remained in second place, this time adding $13.28 million on 3843 screens in 54 markets for a total of $630.30 million internationally and $961.15 million worldwide. Since last week it has crossed the $600 million milestone on the international scene, making it just the 13th film to do so. It is now the seventh highest grossing film of all time. The film's per screen average has declined enough that it will likely shed screens and markets rather quickly. That said, if the worst thing you can say about a movie's box office run is, "It might not make it to $1 billion!" then the film is a massive success. More...

International Details: Wonderful Milestone for Alice

May 9th, 2010

With Iron Man 2 debuting over the past weekend, Alice in Wonderland had one last gasp before the onslaught of summer blockbusters. It remained in second place with $23.54 million on 4263 screens in 54 markets over the weekend for a total of $592.23 million after two months of release. Worldwide, the film now has $921.92 million, which means that over the weekend it became just the 14th film to cross the $900 million milestone. It has already overtaken Shrek 2 for 13th place. By now, it is likely already in the top ten all-time and has a nominal shot at $1 billion worldwide. More...

Weekend Estimates: Iron Man 2 Leads Off Summer with Fifth Best Opening

May 9th, 2010

A prime launch date, inflated ticket prices, and the unbeatable formula of a superhero sequel combined to give Iron Man 2 a massive opening weekend, according to Paramount's estimate, released on Sunday. Their projected $133.6 million would make the movie the fifth-biggest opener of all time, and cements Iron Man's place among the industry's mega-franchises, alongside Batman, Spider-Man, Pirates of the Caribbean, Twilight and Harry Potter. More...

IMAX: Iron Golden during International Debut

May 6th, 2010

Iron Man 2 started its international run a week ahead of its domestic run and among its many impressive results was a record-breaking debut on IMAX. During its opening weekend, it pulled in $2.25 million on IMAX 48 screens, which was a record for a live action film, topping the $2.1 million earned by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. More...

International Top Five: Clash Cracks Another Milestone

April 28th, 2010

Clash of the Titans remained in first place with $34.12 million on 9703 screens in 63 markets for a total of $244.18 million internationally and $389.74 million worldwide. Since last week, the film crossed $200 million internationally. It will cross $400 million worldwide before the weekend. It opened in Japan over the weekend, earning fourth place with $3.01 million on 479 screens, including previews, while it debuted in first place in the United Arab Emirates with $1.1 million on 54 screens. Meanwhile, it added $3.67 million on 992 screens in Mexico for a total of $13.69 million after two weeks of release, which is more than How To Train Your Dragon has earned there in a month... and Mexico tends to reward family films. At this point, $300 million internationally is practically guaranteed, while it might reach $500 million worldwide, if Iron Man 2 doesn't steal away too many screens. More...

International Top Five: Titans Titanic but Alice is Wonderful

April 21st, 2010

Clash of the Titans tread water, down just 2% to $52.67 million on 10,165 screens in 55 markets for a total of $191.64 million internationally and $324.24 million worldwide. The film had a surprisingly strong start in Mexico, earning $7.18 million on 980 screens, which is close to the amount Alice in Wonderland opened with last month. It also placed first in Italy with $4.26 million on 533 screens. With an opening in Japan this weekend and Brazil next month (as well as some smaller markets), hitting $300 million internationally shouldn't be an issue. It could reach $500 million worldwide. More...

International Top Five: Titan Towers Above Competition

April 14th, 2010

Clash of the Titans nearly doubled its reach over the weekend as it remained in top spot with $53.87 million on 6629 screens in 32 markets for a still early total of $120.95 million internationally and $231.18 million worldwide. The film opened in first place in Russia with $11.82 million on 920 screens. That's a lot given the size of the market, but Russia has a history of rewarding fantasy films. In France it also opened in first place, earning $6.41 million on 576 screens, while in Germany it showed similar strength with $5.93 million on 628 screens. As far as holdovers were concerned, it remained in first place in South Korea with $4.11 million on 642 screens over the weekend for a total of $14.17 million after two. It also remained on top in the U.K. with $3.77 million on 468 screens over the weekend for a total of $19.56 million after two. More...

International Top Five: Clash Heard Around the World

April 7th, 2010

Clash of the Titans started its international run in first place with $41.14 million on 3458 screens in 17 markets over the weekend for a total opening of $45.96 million. This includes first place openings in a number of major markets, led by the U.K. where it opened with $8.68 million on 446 screens. In Australia, the film debuted with $5.90 million on 351 screens. In Spain it managed $5.52 million on 544 screens over the weekend and $8.53 million, including midweek numbers. More...

Clash Sets Titanic Easter Record

April 6th, 2010

Easter weekend resulted in records being broken as Clash of the Titans became the biggest Easter opener of all time. The strength of that film and others in the top five helped the box office pull in $177 million overall. That's 38% more than last weekend and 14% more than the same weekend last year. 2010 has now pulled in $2.83 billion, a 10% advantage when compared to 2009's pace. Double-digit growth is amazing and if it can keep this pace up, we could be in for an amazing ride this summer. More...

Titans Set to Tower Above the Rest

April 1st, 2010

It's the start of a new month and many are predicting that we will get off to a record start. The big release of the week is Clash of the Titans and its only competition is Fast & Furious, which opened with nearly $71 million this time last year. Will this movie be able to meet or exceed that figure? We shall soon find out. More...

International Top Five: Dragon Soars, But Alice Still Wonderful

March 31st, 2010

A couple of major market debuts helped Alice in Wonderland keep its hold on first place, with $50.63 million on 8369 screens in 51 markets for a total of $367.77 million internationally and $661.30 million worldwide. In France it debuted in first place with $11.67 million on 735 screens, while it opened with $5.1 million on 450 screens in China. The film added $3.74 million on 510 screens in the U.K. for a total of $52.18 million, which is the film's best single foreign market. By this time next week it should have crossed the $400 million mark internationally and $700 million worldwide. $800 million is practically a lock at this point. Depending on how well it does in Spain, Japan, and Brazil, it could finish with more than $900 million. It has done particularly well in Mexico, with a running tally of $22.56 million. This bodes well for its chances in Spain and Brazil. However, it hasn't managed the same success in South Korea, with $16.95 million. This could be an omen for its run in Japan. More...

Dragon Tops Mixed Box Office

March 30th, 2010

How to Train Your Dragon became the third 3D film to top the box office this year, but its opening didn't match my lofty expectations. Additionally, the rest of the box office wasn't able to compensate and that left the overall box office a little on the soft side. On a positive note, it did rise 1.7% from last weekend to $129 million. On the negative side, that represents a 12% decline from the same weekend last year, ending 2010's winning streak at four weeks. Year-to-date, 2010 has pulled in $2.59 billion at the box office. This figure is still 8.9% higher than the same point last year, which is fantastic. More...

Weekend Estimates: Dragon Tops Alice, But Doesn't Set Box Office on Fire

March 28th, 2010

As expected, How to Train Your Dragon comfortably won the weekend at the box office, but its early performance can be best described as solid rather than spectacular. With $43.3 million over the weekend, according to Paramount's Sunday estimate, it was easily able to beat Alice in Wonderland ($17.3 million, per Disney), but falls some way behind the opening of Monsters vs. Aliens, which debuted this weekend last year. Given Dragon's better reviews, it should have better legs than Monsters vs. Aliens, but it has a lot of work to do if it's going to earn much more than $100 million. More...

Does Dragon Know How to Win at the Box Office?

March 25th, 2010

After three weeks on top, there's really no doubt that Alice in Wonderland will surrender its crown to How to Train Your Dragon this weekend. The real question is whether or not the newcomer can earn more than Monsters vs. Aliens did last year. More...

International Top Five: Alice is Just a Little Shy

March 24th, 2010

Alice in Wonderland remained in first place for the third weekend in a row, adding $47.50 million on 6,827 screens in 49 markets for a total of $299.78 million internationally. I guarantee it reached $300 million internationally early on Monday. In fact, weekend estimates had it topping $300 million on Sunday, before the revised final numbers were released. The film again had no major market openings this weekend, but it remains a powerhouse in many countries. This includes the U.K., where it pulled in $7.26 million on 525 screens over the weekend for a total of $45.65 million after just three weeks of release. The film now has made $565.22 million worldwide after just three weeks of release. With openings in France, Spain, Japan, and Brazil ahead of it, it is on track for $750 million. More...

Alice Completes (Mad) Hat-Trick

March 22nd, 2010

For the third weekend in a row, Alice in Wonderland topped the chart at the box office. The number one new release was also bigger than expected. However, the rest of the chart failed to live up to expectations, which led to a total weekend of $126 million, a nearly 14% drop-off from the previous weekend. That said, this was a 20% increase from the same weekend last year, which is obviously a much more important number. Year-to-date, 2010 has pulled in $2.42 billion, 9.0% higher than the same pace last year. It's still way too early to crack open the champagne, but this is a great start. More...

Weekend Estimates: Alice Makes it Three in a Row

March 21st, 2010

Alice in Wonderland is enjoying a third straight win on the box office charts this weekend, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. With another $34.5 million or so in the bank, Alice will have rung up over $265 million by the end of the day. After Avatar's domination at the beginning of the year, 2010 is really shaping up to be the year of 3D movies. More...

Alice has a Bounty on New Releases

March 18th, 2010

After Alice in Wonderland held on better than expected last weekend, almost all analysts think it will repeat on top again this weekend. The three new releases should at least come close to matching last year's new releases, and with Alice leading the way, it should be another strong week on a year-to-year basis. More...

International Top Five: Alice Replicates Incredible Holds Worldwide

March 17th, 2010

Despite no major market openings this past weekend, Alice in Wonderland slipped just 15% during its second weekend of release as it easily topped the international charts yet again. Over the past weekend it managed $80.59 million on 7065 screens in 45 markets for a total of $225.05 million internationally and $434.39 million worldwide. It did open in first place in Belgium, with $1.44 million on 112 screens over the weekend and $1.65 million in total. Its biggest market of the weekend was the U.K. where it added $11.07 million on 533 screens over the weekend for a total of $34.29 million after two. In Germany, the film actually grew a tiny bit to $7.15 million on 555 screens over the weekend for a total of $16.53 million. In South Korea it was down just 2% to $4.57 million on 444 screens, giving the film $11.28 million in total. With debuts in France, Spain, Japan, and Brazil over the next month and a half, the film will have no trouble adding to its totals. It could more than double its current worldwide box office. More...

Alice Overtakes Kells on the Per Theater Chart

March 16th, 2010

Just like last week, there were only two films to top $10,000 on the per theater chart. In fact, these were the same two films that managed the same feat last week. However, they finished in the opposite order with Alice in Wonderland taking the top spot with an average of $16,822 per theater while The Secret of Kells earned $12,537 in one theater. More...

Audiences Stay Mad over Alice

March 16th, 2010

The box office results were mostly fantastic over the weekend, thanks almost entirely to one film, Alice in Wonderland. The movie was able to hold on better than almost everyone predicted, but the rest of the new releases failed to connect. This resulted in a 26% drop from last weekend, as the overall market pulled in $147 million. However, this was 45% higher than the same weekend last year. Meanwhile, year-to-date 2010 has now pulled in $2.24 billion, which is nearly 9.0% higher than last year's pace. More...

Weekend Estimates: Alice Leads Way for Second Weekend

March 14th, 2010

Alice in Wonderland comfortably held top spot at the box office this weekend, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. In these days of 60% drops for big releases, its decline of 47% can be considered a victory for Disney and earned it an impressive $62 million in its second outing. Its total cume to date passed $200 million, and the movie is already Tim Burton's second-highest grossing movie after 1989's Batman. More...

Alice is out of New Releases' League

March 11th, 2010

There are three or four new wide releases coming out this week (depending on your definition of wide) but it appears that none of them have a real shot at taking top spot away from Alice in Wonderland. This is true despite the overwhelming majority of analysts who are predicting that the film will suffer at least a 55% drop-off this weekend. Fortunately for the box office as a whole, this should still be more than enough to keep pace with last year, even if none of the new releases match the best of last year's crop. More...

International Top Five: Alice is a Worldwide Wonderland

March 10th, 2010

As it did domestically, Alice in Wonderland opened in first place internationally with $95.27 million on 6389 screens in 41 markets over the weekend for a total opening of $100.52 million. This is a little lower that its domestic debut, but it has yet to open in about a third of the international markets, so if it can open with similar strength in those place, the film should have about a 60 / 40 international/ domestic split. This means that even if the film has poor legs, it should have no trouble topping $500 million globally. The film's biggest single market was the U.K., where it opened in first place with $16.04 million on 533 screens for a per screen average of just over $30,000. It was surprisingly strong in Italy, where it made $11.15 million on 668 screens over the weekend for a total of $14.37 million. It nearly cracked $10 million in its opening in Australia, pulling in $9.46 million on 48 screens. Other major markets include Mexico ($7.92 million on 780 screens), Germany ($7.12 million on 452), South Korea ($4.69 million on 440), and Russia ($4.11 million on 868). More...

Alice Tops Avatar on IMAX

March 9th, 2010

This weekend, Alice in Wonderland destroyed expectations and along the way broke records. This extended to its IMAX run, as it pulled in $12.1 million on 188 domestic IMAX screens. This represents more than 10% of its total box office from just 2.5% of its total screens, giving it a per screen average of $64,362. Even with the higher ticket prices for IMAX, this is still impressive. Additionally, the film made $3.1 million on 53 screens internationally, while it is scheduled to expand by 29 more screens over the coming weeks. I don't think this film will have the same legs as Avatar, but it could top The Polar Express's current total of $71 million worldwide, climbing into second place for a DMR film. More...

Kells Success is no Secret

March 9th, 2010

There were only two films to top $10,000 on the per theater chart, but they both did amazingly well. The Secret of Kells led the way with $39,826 in one theater, including a sellout of all seven shows on Saturday. Second place went to the overall number one film, Alice in Wonderland, which earned an average of $31,143. More...

Alice Shatters Records, Turns 2010 Around

March 8th, 2010

Wow. There's no other word to describe it. Alice in Wonderland's record-breaking opening blew away all expectations and by itself was almost as much as the entire weekend box office last weekend and last year. Overall, the box office pulled in $197 million, which was 65% higher than last weekend and 69% higher than the same weekend last year. It pushed the year-to-date box office to $2.04 billion, which is 5.9% higher than last year's record-setting pace. Additionally, attendance is also above last year's pace by close to 4%. More...

Weekend Estimates: Alice in Box Office Wonderland

March 7th, 2010

Alice in Wonderland blasted into the record books with a huge $116.3 million opening weekend, according to Disney's Sunday estimate. Among other notable records, it's on track to break the record for the biggest weekend by a non-sequel (overtaking Spider-Man). It's also the biggest weekend in the first quarter of the third, and only the third movie to top $100 million outside of the Summer season. The combination of 3D and Tim Burton couldn't have been better timed for Disney. More...

Alice's Expectations are Wonderful

March 4th, 2010

It is the beginning of a new month and there's lots of pressure on the box office to keep up pace with last year. There was only one wide release this time last year, Watchmen, but it opened with more than $55 million, which at the time was the third best March opening ever. This time around Alice in Wonderland is expecting to top that figure. In fact, a lot think it will set the March opening record. More...

2010 Preview: March

March 1st, 2010

February was a stronger than expected month, for the most part, but 2010 continued to lose ground to 2009. Hopefully this trend will reverse itself, but it could be tough. Last March started with Watchmen, which earned just over $100 million at the box office. The month ended with Monsters vs. Aliens, which earned nearly $200 million. Granted, between these two releases there were a fair number of bombs, but it might be hard for this year to match last year at the top. More...

Avatar is as Big as They Get on IMAX

January 5th, 2010

Avatar added another $8.7 million from 179 IMAX theaters domestically, which was virtually identical to last week's result. This pushed its running tally to $47.1 million after just three weeks of release. Internationally it grew to $4.0 million on 71 IMAX screens, including a single-day record of $1.425 million on Saturday, for a total of $20 million internationally and $67 million worldwide, which is a record for a day-and-date Hollywood release like this. More...

And You Thought Avatar was Big in Regular Theaters

December 22nd, 2009

Avatar set records over the weekend on IMAX screens across the nation, pulling in $9.5 million on 178 screens, which is the largest opening for an IMAX film and also the widest release in the format's history. There were reports of nearly every ticket being sold with theater owners adding shows at 3 am, and in some cases 6 am, to deal with the demand. Internationally, the film made $4.1 million on 58 screens for a worldwide total of $13.6 million so far. The film has yet to fully expand internationally, while historically films have had better legs on IMAX than on regular screens, which will undoubtedly help it going forward. More...

At Least It Was Big on IMAX

November 11th, 2009

Disney's A Christmas Carol took in $4.2 million on 181 IMAX screens during its opening, which represented 14% of its total box office in just 3% of the theaters it played in. Some are reporting this is the highest percentage earned by a wide release, which is partially due to its per screen average of $23,000, but it also had a lot to do with its softer than expected theatrical debut. It opened with $560,000 internationally in 28 IMAX theaters, and it is only half way done with its international rollout. More...

IMAX Opening of Monstrous Proportions

March 31st, 2009

Monsters vs. Aliens broke several records over the week on IMAX screens on its way to a weekend haul of $5.1 million on 143 screens, which is the highest opening for an IMAX 3-D film. Additionally, the film earned $2.02 million on Saturday, which was the highest Saturday box office for any IMAX film, 3-D or not. The film's per screen average on IMAX was $35,682 compared to its non-IMAX per screen average of roughly $8,400. Internationally, the film broke IMAX records in a number of markets, including Russia, the Ukraine, and the Philippines, but numbers were not immediately available. More...
