May 7th, 2006

A pair of openings in major markets helped Eight Below climb a spot to sixth with $5.05 million on 2129 screens in 24 markets for a total of $24.26 million so far. The film opened in France but could only manage sixth place with $1.85 million on 473 screens while in Spain it opened in first place, but only managed $981,000 on 224 screens.

Narnia Overthrows King for Home Market Crown

April 15th, 2006

Narnia opened in first place on the home market with a lower than expected $8.73 million in rentals, and it did even better on the sales charts. But more on that in a bit. More...

DVD Releases for April 4, 2006

April 3rd, 2006

The first Tuesday of the month is usually the busiest when it comes to DVD releases, and while there are certainly more releases coming out tomorrow than there are in the next two weeks, it is not as busy as I would like when it comes to top notch releases. At first glance there are only two that are even contenders for the DVD pick of the week, including Brokeback Mountain - Buy from Amazon and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - Collector's Edition. But while there are a couple of DVDs that are worth picking up, none make it to the level of DVD Pick of the Week. (And a quick glance at the coming weeks suggest there might not be one till the end of the month.) One last note, if you are interested in picking up Narnia, check out our contest first. More...

Syriana Transcends Competition

December 6th, 2005

The post-holiday weekend and a nearly doubling of its theatre count didn't hurt Syriana's per theatre average much as it earned more than $500,000 in just 9 theatres for an average of $57,936. That was more than twice the second place film, Transamerica, which earned just shy of $47,000 in two theatres for a per theater average of $23,454. More...

Zorro Leaves its Mark

November 27th, 2005

The Legend of Zorro fell from second to sixth this week and because of that its quest from $100 million internationally took a serious hit. Over the weekend the film pulled in $4.20 million on 4062 screens in 62 markets for a running tally of $80.73 million. In France the film fell 57% to $1.01 million over the weekend and $14.80 million during its four-week run while it had a similar drop-off in Spain where it was down 56% to $475,000 over the weekend and $9.10 million in total. The box office was less kind in Russia, (down 68% to $136,000); Germany, (down 70% to $232,000) and the U.K., (down 83% to $120,000). More...

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. Here the list of this week's releases, a couple of new sites and few updates. This week's list is a little shorter than usual partially because I'm moving today and had to complete the list on Wednesday. Because of this there was no site that really stood out as deserving the Weekly Website Award; perhaps next week there will be two winners. More...
