DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 31st, 2012

January 31st, 2012

It's kind of an unusual week on the home market with five first run releases coming out on DVD and Blu-ray. However, all five films missed expectations in one degree or another. Some were outright bombs by anyone's definition, while others were expected to struggle to find a large audience, just not by as much as they did. That is not to say they were all bad movies.

Per Theater Chart Shows Some Skin

There was only one film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart this weekend.

This suggests it will perform very well on the art house circuit, but this is a film that will never play to wide audiences. More...

Will Limited Releases get Under Your Skin?

October 14th, 2011

There are quite a few limited releases coming out this week that have earned advance buzz, or have casts with strong name recognition, or are earning strong reviews. There are a few that have two, but only one film has all three. The Skin I Live In is the lone film to earn the trifecta, but this film has a difficult premise to overcome if it wants to earn any real measure of mainstream success. Perhaps some of the other films will mange to translate buzz into ticket sales, but that rarely lasts long. More...
