DVD Releases for January 23, 2007

January 23rd, 2007

Business is starting to pick up again for DVD releases. It's still not up to the level of the pre-Christmas boom, or even the yearly average, but at least it's not a desolate wasteland either. There were a couple releases that were contenders for DVD Pick of the Week, but in the end I went with This Film is Not Yet Rated - Buy from Amazon, but since I work in the industry, at least tangentially, my enjoyment of the movie may have been increased somewhat.

Busy Week can't Lift Home Market Numbers

May 6th, 2006

There were eighth new releases to chart this week led by Aeon Flux; however, while the film topped the charts, its $6.08 million in rentals was hardly impressive. More...

DVD Releases for April 25, 2006

April 24th, 2006

It was a big week for DVD releases, but mostly in terms of quantity and not quality. The two releases I was looking forward to the most were Match Point - Buy from Amazon and Crumb - Special Edition, but neither DVD is overloaded with special features. On the other hand, American Dad - Volume 1 is packed, but I never really got into the show. I don't think any of the releases really deserves to by the DVD Pick of the Week, but Crumb - Special Edition is the best of the bunch. More...

International Charts - Memories haven't Faded Yet

March 12th, 2006

A fourth place, $1.63 million debut on 250 screens in France helped Memoirs Of A Geisha leap up the charts this weekend. Overall the film finished in sixth place on the international charts with $3.98 million on 1723 screens in 47 markets for an international total of $88.34 million. The film placed higher during its opening in Finland with $79,000 on 12 screen over the weekend and $95,000 in total while it had to settle for ninth place in Belgium with $200,000 on 29 screens.

Mountain Climbs Back Up International Charts

March 5th, 2006

On the weekend before the Oscars are announced, Brokeback Mountain climbed a couple of spots to sixth with $4.44 million on 1368 screens in 30 markets for an international total of $53.89 million. New openings include Belgium where the filmed debuted in second place with $312,000 on a mere 27 screens for the best per screen average in the market. It wasn't as potent in Poland where it had to settle for fourth place with $194,000 on 40 screens over the weekend and $217,000 in total. The film also benefited from soft in the U.K. where it slipped just 5% to $442,000 on 245 screens for a very impressive total of $15.83 million so far. It was even better during its second weekend in Holland where it rose 1% to $210,000 for the weekend and $562,000 in total. More...

Trio of New Openings Push Casanova Higher on International Charts

Its other major market debut was the U.K., but there it had to settle for fifth with $959,000 on 351 screens. Overall the film made $5.17 million on 1699 screens in 18 markets for an international total of just $11.68 million so far. More...

Taking the Fight out of the Per Theatre Charts

January 24th, 2006

Not one film could reach the $10,000 per theatre average mark this weekend, with Why We Fight coming the closest with $8,929. More...

Holidays Help Holdovers Hold On

January 18th, 2006

There were three films that topped $10,000 on the Per Theatre Charts this week, and not one of them was a new release. Cache (Hidden) continued to lead the way earning nearly $120,000 in 10 theatres for a $11,732 average. Not far behind was Fateless, which dropped less than 15% to $10,805 in its lone theatre. Rounding out the list was Transamerica, which dropped less than 1% to $10,108 despite increasing its theatre count from 6 to 9. More...

Hidden Finds Success

January 10th, 2006

Cache (Hidden) shot back to the top of the per theatre charts thanks to a tiny 4.68% decline, as the film earned an average of $13,851 in its 5 theatres. Second place went to Fateless with $12,680 in its lone theatre, while Brokeback Mountain maintained is per theatre average with $11,856 despite a very healthy growth in its theatre count. Word of mouth is helping Transamerica, as the film climbed above the $10,000 mark for the first time in a few weeks. It saw its average grow to $10,191. More...

Game, Set, Match - Updated

January 3rd, 2006

Match Point was the clear winner on this week's per theatre average charts, as it earned nearly $400,000 in just 8 theatres for an average of $49,824. The second placed film, The New World, was well back with an average of $19,383 during its first full weekend of release. The Matador, which was the only other new film of the weekend, earned $69,000 in 4 theatres for a per theatre average of $17,275. Last week's number one film, Cache (Hidden), slipped to fourth place with a still healthy $14,532. Brokeback Mountain climbed back above the $10,000 market with $3.6 million in 269 theatres for an amazing average of $13,455 during its fourth week of release.

Movie Website Updates for December 16 - December 22

December 22nd, 2005

This week's list of movie site is abridged and only contains the films that are opening this week, unfortunately, of those eleven films, only one had any significant updates this week. That site was Munich - Official Site, but I can't say its an award-winning site. I guess that means the Weekly Website Award is taking a vacation over the holidays. More...

Limited Releases: Master of the Golden Statues

December 21st, 2005

There's not much time for films looking for a little Oscar glory, so there's no surprise that a few films are trying to squeak in under the wire. However, outside a near certain Best Foreign Language nod to Master of the Crimson Armor, it doesn't seem like any of the films on this week's list are destined for Oscar glory. More...

Movie Website Updates for December 9 - December 15

December 15th, 2005

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. We've hit another slow patch for movie websites, which is not unexpected since the most of the new site on this list are for films that open months from now so there's hardly any content, or open during the dead zone that is January. I would say the best of the rest would be King Kong - Official Site, but it is not strong enough to win the Weekly Website Award. More...
