DVD and Blu-ray Releases for November 23rd, 2010

November 22nd, 2010

This Friday is Black Friday, but there's a lull on the home market with not a whole lot of great releases. (This is the usual pattern for Thanksgiving.) The biggest hit coming out is The Expendables, which should top the chart, while there are a number of smaller releases that are in contention for Pick of the Week. The best of these is Metropolis: The Complete Metropolis, which comes out on Blu-ray this week after being released on DVD last week. More...

Life on the Per Theater Chart

July 27th, 2010

July 25th, 2010

An impressive second weekend hold by Inception will give it a relatively comfortable win this weekend, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. With a decline of just 31%, Christopher Nolan's sci-fi thriller will end up with around $43.5 million, according to Warner Bros., $7 million ahead of Salt, which is set to open with about $36.5 million. Both movies topped a per theater average of $10,000, and Sony won't be too disappointed with second place. More...

Countdown to Limited Releases

July 23rd, 2010

We have four limited releases on this week's list, five if you count the re-release of Orlando, which is arguably the best film to check out. The only other release opening in more than a single theater is Countdown to Zero. More...
