DVD Releases for November 9, 2004

November 8th, 2004

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases and a few from the growing TV on DVD section, including the nominees for the DVD Pick of the Week, which we'll get to in a second. This was a strange week, there was only one first run release, a few limited releases, several nearly re-releases complete with ads for upcoming movies and more than a couple really old movies mostly sold in sets. Even the best of the bunch is going to have a really narrow appeal, so instead of naming a Pick of the Week, I'll name the best of each group. Best Limited Release: Ju-On: The Grudge - Buy from Amazon. Best Ad for A Sequel: Bridget Jones's Diary - Collector's Series - Buy from Amazon. Best Box Set Containing Movies Made Before I was Born: Fritz Lang Epic Collection - Buy from Amazon. More...

No Change in Heart for the Per Theater Charts

October 12th, 2004

I Heart Huckabees again led a busy week on the Per Theatre Charts with just over $900,000 in 44 theatres for an average of $20,480. Guiana 1838 continues to impress, earning $16,610 in its lone theatre. The award season hopeful, Stage Beauty, got off to a good start with an average of $12,885 in three theatres. And Tarnation opened in one theatre over the weekend and earned an estimate 58 times its $220 production budget with $12,740. (Although that production budget is misleading because it only takes into account the editing software and not the decade's worth of home movie film, still photographs, etc. used to make the film, nor post-production, prints and advertising.)

Robot Tops Very Light Competition

August 10th, 2004

With the summer juggernauts mostly wrapping up their runs, and very little in the way of new competition, I, Robot easily finished first on the international box office charts. Its weekend earnings of $31.3 million on more than 6,000 screens in 29 markets was nearly triple what the nearest competitor could take in. The film opened number one in the U.K. (8.7 million), Germany ($5.3 million) and Russia ($2.4 million) as well as strong holdovers in France ($2.6 million) and other nations. The film has already earned $71.2 million internationally, and should top its domestic numbers within a few weeks. More...

Hunting the Top Spot

June 23rd, 2004

A trio of films topped $10,000 in a very close race on the Per Theatre Charts. Coming out on top was The Hunting of the President with $11,649 per theatre in its two theatres. Just behind was the overall chart topper Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story with $11,162 and last week's winner Napoleon Dynamite with an average of $10,750. More...

More Records Fall as Harry Potter Opens

June 7th, 2004

Just a month ago it was looking as if 2004 would suffer through a disastrous summer as the first two tent-pole releases failed to live up to expectations. However, since then we've had record after record fall. The first weekend in June continued this trend as the top 3 films broke several records between them. Since it was a post holiday weekend, a drop in the overall box office was expected, but with a decline of just 2.8% to $186.7 million it was enough to become the largest ever 3-day weekend. And the increase from last year was an incredible 14.6% there's more and more to celebrate about 2004. More...

Still in Control

June 3rd, 2004

The boost to the box office due to the long weekend helped several films cross $10,000 per theatre with a pretty even mix of wide and limited releases. But it was last week's winner Control Room that won the weekend with $24,755 per theatre over the 3-day weekend. Coming in second was The Day After Tomorrow with an impressive $20,071; coincidentally, the film also came in second place on the overall charts. Next on the list were two films with very similar averages: Saved! brought in $17,257 and just behind was Shrek 2 at $17,090 per theatre. Rounding out the $10,000 films was My Mother Likes Women, which saw its per theatre average increased to $11,024 last weekend. More...

Control Room Reigns over Per Theatre Charts

May 26th, 2004

Three films earned per theatre averages of more than $10,000 this weekend lead by the debut of the documentary Control Room, which earned an impressive $27,125 in its lone theatre. Close behind in second place was Shrek 2's record setting debut with an unbelievable average of $25,952 in an unprecedented 4,163 theatres. Lastly, Coffee and Cigarettes managed a second weekend above the $10,000 average mark with $11,558 despite more than tripling its theatre count to 17. More...

Per Theatre Average takes a Coffee Break

May 19th, 2004

While the overall box office hasn't caught on fire since the beginning of May, the per theatre average charts have seen a much needed boost. This week another four movies were able to earn more than $10,000 per theatre lead by the debut of Coffee and Cigarettes with an impressive average of $19,832 in 5 theatres. Next on the list was the overall box office leader Troy, which was well back with $13,739. Perhaps more impressive is the sophomore stint of Godzilla: The Original Japanese Version; despite doubling its theatre count it was able to maintain a large portion of its average finishing at $12,176. Rounding out our quartet of $10,000 films is the comedy / social commentary film A Day Without A Mexican, which earned over $600,000 in 56 theatres throughout Southern California for an average of $11,071.
