In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for John Carter.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 28th, 2012

February 27th, 2012

There are not a lot of new releases this week, but it includes four-time Oscar winner Hugo. The DVD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, or 3D Blu-ray Combo are clearly contenders for Pick of the Week, but so is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: The Friendship Express. I'm going with the former, but it is close. More...

Per Theater Chart: Strength and Independence

December 6th, 2011

We are right in the prime of Awards Season and over the weekend there were three films earning very impressive per theater averages and two of those films were recently given Independent Spirit Award Nominations. Leading the way for the second weekend in a row was The Artist with an average of $35,211 in six theaters. It is still barely in theaters, but it is already halfway to $1 million. Being a silent film will likely keep the film from expanding truly wide, but it should grab some measure of mainstream success. Shame debuted in second place with an average of $34,952 in ten theaters. It is rare for an NC-17 film to do this well. Rounding out the $10,000 club was A Dangerous Method placed third with an average of $29,894, while still playing in four theaters. More...

Can Limited Releases Pick Up the Slack?

December 2nd, 2011

Since there are no wide releases this weekend, the box office will be looking to limited releases to help boost the numbers. Last year the biggest release was The Warrior's Way, which made just over $3 million during its opening weekend. Obviously no limited release is going to match that this weekend. However, The Warrior's Way finished with less than $6 million and that figure might be within reach for a couple limited releases. Shame has the best shot at reaching that level of box office success, but Outrage is also earning great reviews. More...
