It's the official start of award season as the Independent Spirit Award nominations were announced. Several films received nods, but I'm Not There and Juno were the big hits.

While there were plenty of new releases that charted this week, the top five was nearly identical to last week. In fact, the top four were identical, which left Wild Hogs in first place with $7.81 million in rentals over the week and $17.75 million in total.

This is another week without a first run release that demands to be purchased.
That is not to say there are no first run releases coming out tomorrow, just none that need picking up.
Fortunately, TV on DVD and Special Editions were able to pick up the slack.
From the former category we have Ugly Betty - The Complete First Season and House, M.D. - Season Three that were contenders for DVD Pick of the Week.
From the latter, we have House of Games - Criterion Collection and Serenity - Collector's Edition.
And the winner is... Serenity - Collector's Edition.
Buy it early, buy it often, and maybe we'll have a sequel before too long.

Only one film was able to top $10,000 on the per theater chart, but it did so with ease.
Sicko earned $68,969 in its lone theater, and also sold out all 43 advanced screenings.
This is a very good sign for Friday's wide release, although I'm still not confident it will open in the top five.

One of the most anticipate films of the summer became the best site of the week. The Simpsons Movie - Official Site is finally here and the winner of the Weekly Website Award.

This week's collection of limited releases includes movies about killer sheep, health care that can kill, and guys who get paid to kill.
Despite this wide, wide range of subjects, there is one thing that almost all these films have in common -- they are all earning excellent reviews.
This week, earning just 75% positive is considered average.
Hopefully the competition doesn't hurt the films too much as they deserve to reach wider audiences.
