DVD Rentals - Jump to the Top

June 23rd, 2008

The top three rentals this week were all new releases, including Jumper, which landed in first place. More...

DVD Sales - Weak Competition the Secret to National Treasure's Success

June 18th, 2008

Another week with no powerhouse new releases has left National Treasure: Book of Secrets atop the DVD sales chart. During its third week in a row in first place, it sold 483,000 units for $7.45 million in revenue and running tallies of 4.91 million units and $78.33 million, which places it in third for the year. More...

DVD Rentals - Semi-Pro Jumps to the Top

June 18th, 2008

Semi-Pro led a trio of new releases on top of the rental charts this week, earning a solid $8.1 million in its first week. More...

DVD Releases for June 3, 2008

June 3rd, 2008

This was a bad week for big movies, with not a single first run release is even worth rating a solid purchase, never mind being a contender for DVD Pick of the Week. There were a few other contenders for the title, including Dirty Harry Collection on DVD or Blu-ray. However, I found it impossible to decide which format was the better deal. Had the Blu-ray provided anything more than High Definition, or been a more reasonable price compared to the DVD, it would have been an easier choice. One of them is the DVD Pick of the Week, I just don't know which one. On a side note, there is an immense flood of Blu-ray releases, including a few I thought were coming out previously. More...

International Details - No Foolin'

May 4th, 2008

Fool's Gold opened in a trio of major markets and that helped the film climb into sixth place with $4.93 million on 1809 screens in 39 markets for a total of $26.30 million. The film did relatively well in Spain with $1.03 million on 272 screens and in Germany with $934,000 on 254 screens while earning second place in both markets. On the other hand, it bombed in Italy with just $516,000 on 232 screens landing in sixth place. Overall, it was better than the film's average so far, but not nearly enough to recover from its previous troubles. It should hit $100 million worldwide this weekend, but that's not much compared to its domestic run, nor compared to its production budget. More...

International Details - Island Scores Solid Sixth in Debut

April 20th, 2008

Nim's Island made its first push onto the international chart landing in sixth place with $4.53 million on 970 screens in 7 markets for a very early total of $5.64 million. The film opened in first place in Italy with $1.71 million on 304 screens while it expanded into fourth place in Australia with $780,000 on 196 screens over the weekend for a total of $1.69 million after two. The film also made its debut in France with $1.65 million on 399 screens, which was only enough for fifth place. Nim's Island is using a graduated release schedule and doesn't have a major opening for the rest of the month. On the other hand, it has major openings practically every month right through till the end of summer. More...

International Details - Men Still Not Getting Old

March 23rd, 2008

No Country For Old Men remained in sixth place with $4.92 million on 1660 screens in 44 markets for a total of $68.25 million. The film ended its international run in Japan where it earned $492,000 on 41, but it missed the top ten there. Perhaps it can expand there. More...

Weekend Box Office Equal Parts Gold and Fool

February 12th, 2008

Results over the weekend were mixed with the number one film opening above expectations by a small degree, but the top five weaker than predicted. This led to the overall box office coming in at just over $112 million, which is down 12% from last weekend. However, it is virtually tied with the same weekend last year. (It is currently down by less than $200,000, but that could change as some independent films finalize their weekend figures and release the numbers later this week.) If late returns can't make up the difference, 2008's winning streak will be over, but it is still up 15% over 2007, which is a huge margin. More...

Three Films in the Hunt for Box Office Treasure

February 7th, 2008

We have two wide releases this week, Fool's Gold and Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, but we could have a repeat champion atop the box office as Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour has proven strong during the week thus far. More...

Super Bowl Weekend Offers a Number of Surprises

February 5th, 2008

The New York Giants stopped the Patriots from completing a perfect season. However, from where I'm sitting, this isn't the biggest news of the weekend. Multiple records were broken by Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. This helped the overall box office hit $128 million over the weekend, which is down 10% from last weekend, but this is reasonable considering this is a post-holiday weekend and Super Bowl Weekend. More importantly, the overall box office was up 40% from the same weekend in 2007, and 2008 is off to an early 16% lead from last year. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of February 1, 2008

February 2nd, 2008

Like most weeks this year, I was not wowed by any of the sites for this week's releases. Most could not rise above effective or average. Hopefully this trend will change soon as we get out of the early year doldrums. More...

2008 Preview: February

February 1st, 2008

2008 got off to a faster than expected start with January helping the year to a 17.5% lead over 2007. It seems unlikely that February will be able to keep up that pace, but there are still enough releases that most avid moviegoers should find something to get excited about. Granted, this is partially due to the combination of the lead year and February 29th landing on a Friday. This means we have five weekends in February this year, something that only happens approximately once every 28 years, which explains the number of films. More...

Hannah Headed for the Top

February 1st, 2008

February starts off with what could be the most unlikely of box office hits in Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. It isn't the only new release this week, but it is looking very likely that it will be the strongest. Granted, a lot of this has to due with Super Bowl Sunday, which siphons off a lot of potential moviegoers, especially the younger male demographic. More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
