We are a week away from the opening of High School Musical 3 - Senior Year, which could either be the biggest hit of the month, or a massive, massive bomb. The margin of error on all predictions it practically 100%. This should make for an interesting week when it comes to the weekly box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of High School Musical 3 - Senior Year.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a poster for Happy-Go-Lucky, Lou Reed's Berlin on DVD, Legendary Performers - Tammy Wynette on DVD, and finally Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus - Best of Both Worlds Concert on DVD.

New releases dominated this week's sales chart in a way that is rarely seen. Not only did we have a new number one, but there wasn't a single holdover in the top eight. That new number one was Camp Rock, which sold 535,000 units and generated $8.02 million in revenue. Next up was Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, which sold 414,000 units. However, with a higher average price it was actually the number one seller in terms of raw dollars with $9.16 million.

TV on DVD is starting to dominate the weekly DVD releases, including the top tier releases. In fact, four of the top five picks for the week are TV on DVD. However, while Heroes - Blu-ray - Season One & Season Two, NCIS - The Fifth Season, and The Shield - The Complete Season Six are all easily contenders for the crown, Nightmare Before Christmas - Collector's Edition on DVD or Blu-ray is the DVD Pick of the Week. One last note, it's been another big week for total releases, and the list had to be split into two. You can part Part II here.
