It's another slow week for top level DVD releases, but I should probably stop saying that as practically every week from May until the end of summer is going to be somewhat slow.
The third quarter is historically the slowest time of year for DVD sales as people who rather go to the cinema and watch the latest blockbuster rather that sit at home.
That is not to say there isn't any DVD worth picking up this week, and the DVD Pick of the Week, Pan's Labyrinth - 2-Disc Platinum Series, would have earned that designation regardless of how busy the week was.
Also earning that distinction this week is Robson Arms - The Complete First Season, a great Canadian TV series.

There were no films able to crack $10,000 on the per theatre charts this week, but one did come close. Inland Empire, an experimental film by David Lynch
, opened in Boston on the weekend and took in $27,508 in its 3 theatres for an average of $9,169. Correction - We have been informed that the film was only playing in 2 theatres and not 3 giving the film a per theatre average of $13,754. Sorry for the error.
Full financial estimates for this film, including domestic and international box office, video sales, video rentals, TV and ancillary revenue
are available through our research services. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
