DVD Sales - Wicked Witches Strong, but Monsters Prevail

October 14th, 2009

This week, we saw a more manageable list of new releases reaching the top 30 on the sales chart, with five new titles and one re-release appearing, compared to a total of nine last week. Leading the way was Monsters vs. Aliens with 2.19 million units sold for opening week consumer spending at retail of $38.20 million. More...

DVD Rentals - Monsters and Aliens vs. The Competition

October 14th, 2009

As it did on the sales chart, Monsters vs. Aliens led the way on the rental chart this week, topping all new releases with relative ease. More...

DVD Releases for September 29th, 2009

September 28th, 2009

This week there are not that many releases on this week's list, but there a few releases at the very top that are worthy of being the DVD Pick of the Week. Monsters vs. Aliens is certainly in that list, but until the DVD and Blu-ray shows up, I can't confirm if it's a DVD Pick of the Week of merely a must buy. Wizard of Oz - 70th Anniversary Edition on either DVD or Blu-ray Gift-set is DVD Pick of the Week material. More...

Per Theater Chart Hurting for New Releases

July 7th, 2009

Only three films managed to reach the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart this week, and no new releases were able to top The Hurt Locker. That film led the way with an average or $14,578 in nine theaters, but it will need to strike fast if it wants to expand significantly. The Beaches of Agnes was the best of the new releases, opening with an average of $10,650 in two theaters. Ice Age - Dawn of the Dinosaurs opened with an average of $10,171, while the overall number one film, Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen, just missed the $10,000 market with an average of $9,995. More...

Hurt and Revenge Rise on the Per Theater Chart

June 30th, 2009

The Hurt Locker did something most films about the Iraq War have not been able to do: succeed at the box office. During its opening weekend it earned close to $150,000 in just four theaters for an average of $36,338. The overall number one film, Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen, managed second place with an average of $25,736, and nearly double that since Wednesday. Meanwhile, last week's number one film on the per theater average, Whatever Works, landed in third with $10,280. More...

Food Soars Past the Moon on the Per Theater Chart

June 16th, 2009

There were half-a-dozen films that managed to reach the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart, led by Food, Inc. with an impressive average of $20,171 in three theaters. This suggests at least some potential for expansion. Moon opened in a few more theaters while its average was slightly below at $17,006, but this is also enough to suggest some potential for expansion. Tetro opened on Thursday and earned nearly $40,000 over 4 days, but over the three-day weekend it managed an average of $16,221. Away We Go expanded from 4 to 45 theaters, but still earned an average of $12,463, and this is very good news indeed. Youssou N'Dour: I Bring What I Love opened with an average of $10,866 in three theaters while Le Combat Dans l'Ile opened with $10,217 in one. The overall box office champion, The Hangover, came awfully close to the $10,000 mark with an average of $9,775. More...

Staying Up on the Per Theater Chart

June 9th, 2009

Two new releases cracked $10,000 on the per theater chart this week, including Away We Go, which led the way with $32,603 despite mixed reviews. The overall number one film, The Hangover, was second with $13,759. Perhaps most impressive was Up, which remained in the $10,000 club during its sophomore stint with $11,561. It's rare for a saturation level release to repeat on this chart. More...

Movie Website Reviews for the Weekend of June 5th, 2009

June 6th, 2009

There were three wide releases to crack the top ten this weekend, but when it comes to the best of the websites, it's a smaller Canadian movie that was the best. Waterlife's Official Site had a surprising amount of sound and animation to go with the impressive information and it is the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Hoping Limited Releases Don't Go Away

June 5th, 2009

The latest attempt at an independent sleeper hit opens this week with Away We Go. Sadly, it doesn't have reviews that inspire confidence, but hopefully it can beat expectations. That's the biggest release of the week, but there are also a couple of documentaries that are worth checking out. More...

2009 Preview: June

June 1st, 2009

So far we are one month into summer, and it looks like we will have six $100 million movies already (as I'm writing this, only two are confirmed, while three more should reach that milestone over the weekend.) However, June doesn't look as strong, either compared to last month, or the same month last year. It's not entirely bad, and we could have the bigget movie of the year opening this month, but don't expect six more $100 million movies. In fact, there's a chance we won't get half that many.
