Contest: Be the Hero

Next weekend, Interstellar and Big Hero 6 open wide. I think Interstellar will be the bigger film; however, it is opening on IMAX on Wednesday and I'm not sure if the studio will lump those figures into the weekend numbers and that's an added complication I don't want to deal with. Because of this, Big Hero 6 is the target film for this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Big Hero 6.

The prizes this week are codes for a UV digital HD download for The Blair Witch Project. There's actually only supposed to be one code as a prize and one is supposed to be going to me, but I already own the move on Blu-ray, so I thought I would give away both codes as prizes.

Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a code for a UV digital HD download for The Blair Witch Project. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a code for a UV digital HD download for The Blair Witch Project. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for October 5th, 2010

One of the busiest weeks on the DVD / Blu-ray release report; in fact, I set a record for most reviews in a single week. With so much competition, one might think it would be tough picking the Pick of the Week, but that was not the case, as Beauty and the Beast - Blu-ray / DVD Combo walked away with that distinction. The only other release that really came close to it was Phineas and Ferb: A Very Perry Christmas, while there are about a dozen or so other releases worth picking up on this week's list. More...
