DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 16th, 2010

Not a big week in terms of total releases, but there are plenty of top-notch choices from every category. The best wide release on this week's list is The Princess and the Frog, which is a contender for Pick of the Week. It's not the only contender for that title. In fact, there are contenders in nearly every category, including limited releases (Bandslam on DVD), Foreign Language films (Broken Embraces on Blu-ray), TV on DVD (Breaking Bad: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray), and even Canadian (High Life on DVD). While all are worthy of adding to your DVD / Blu-ray collection, I'm going with The Princess and the Frog on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack as the Pick of the Week. More...

Basterds are the Pride of the Charts

Overall the box office was weaker than expected this weekend with only one of four releases meeting expectations, while the holdovers were not able to completely compensate. This led a 10.5% drop-off in ticket sales from last weekend; however, the $127 million total box office take is still 20% higher than the same weekend last year. 2009 stretched its year-to-date lead over 2008 to 6.9%, earning $7.06 billion to $6.60 billion so far.

Nine Helps \'09 Strive to Become Number One

Nine was the lucky number over the weekend as District 9 topped the charts with better than expected results. Also, nine of the ten film talked about in Thursday's column met or exceeded expectations. This helped the box office bring in $142 million overall, which was only 3% lower than last weekend. More importantly, it was 14% higher than the same weekend last year, which was much better than expected. Year-to-date, 2009 has earned $6.86 billion in total revenue, which is 6.6% higher than last year's pace. More...

Weekend Estimates: District 9 Tops Predictions with Big Opening Weekend

District 9 showed that quality is still worth something at the box office this weekend by topping most predictions to score a healthy $37 million opening, according to Sony's estimate released on Sunday morning. While that's some way behind the $54.7 million earned by G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra last weekend, it was made in almost 1,000 theaters, and at a much lower cost to the studio. Profitability for the movie seems assured. More...

Nine Aiming at Number One

As summer slows down, the number of new releases speeds up. This week we have five films with a shot at reaching the top ten, but only three of those are opening truly wide, and only one is a saturation-level release. It's hard to say if this week is much stronger or weaker than last year, but it should be close. More...

Trailers for Movies Opening August 14, 2009


2009 Preview: August

July was a mixed month with several of the big hits failing to live up to great expectations, while still being big hits. There were no surprise hits, but no outright bombs either. No outright bombs is what the industry is hoping for August, but that seems less likely. We could see a monster hit opening on the first week, but that potential hit, G.I.Joe, could also be a monster bomb. There is at least one movie opening each week that I'm personally interested in, although for the most part it is not the widest release of the week that piques my interest. More...
