Blu-ray Sales: A Whole Host of New Releases

Granted, in both cases, new releases dominated, but unlike on DVD, The Host led the way on Blu-ray.

2010 - Holiday Gift Guide - Part II

December 2nd, 2010

Christmas shopping season is in full swing and this week we have the second part of our Holiday Gift Guide. Last week, Part I talked about big first run releases, while this week we look at box sets and TV on DVD releases.

Featured Blu-ray Review: Alien Anthology

November 4th, 2010

It has been just over 30 years since the first Alien hit theaters and around seven years since the franchise Box Set came out on DVD.

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
