Synopsis

You are flying at 37,000 feet, in a new state-of-the-art airliner...so how on earth could a child suddenly disappear from your plane? This nerve-shattering question lies at the heart of FLIGHTPLAN, a visceral suspense thriller that transports the audience into the turbulent confines of an international flight - and puts them at the very center of a chilling human mystery as they jet from Berlin to New York. Kyle Pratt is a frantic but fiercely intelligent mother whose deepest protective instincts will be triggered by a haunting in-flight nightmare: in the middle of the trans-Atlantic trip, her young daughter turns up missing without a trace.

DVD Releases for December 19, 2006

December 19th, 2006

This is the last week before Christmas and there are a lot of DVDs on this week's list that would make perfect last minute Christmas gifts. There are also a lot of DVDs that feel like they are being dumped on the home market in the hopes that they will be scooped up by ever desperate shoppers. Of the contenders, Jackie Chan's Police Story - Special Collector's Edition and The Simpsons - The Complete Ninth Season - Collectable Lisa Head Packaging came close to taking home the honor. But in the end I went with When the Levees Broke. More...

Saw Stands Up to Competition

March 4th, 2006

Despite crumpling by 47% during its second week of release, Saw II remained in first place on the rental charts with $5.29 million for the week and $15.34 million in total. More...

Trio of New Openings Push Casanova Higher on International Charts

February 26th, 2006

Casanova opened in several major markets more than doubling its screen count, and that helped it climb to sixth place over the weekend. Its best market was Italy where the film came in third place with $1.05 million on 243 screens over the weekend and $1.14 million in total while it also managed a third place finish during a very close race in Spain with $919,000 on 250 screens. Its other major market debut was the U.K., but there it had to settle for fifth with $959,000 on 351 screens. Overall the film made $5.17 million on 1699 screens in 18 markets for an international total of just $11.68 million so far. More...

Saw Seen at Home

February 25th, 2006

Saw II dominated the home market easily winning the race for the top of the rental charts while topping the sales charts as well. Rental wise the film brought in $9.96 million in combined rentals, which was $4 million above its nearest competitor. More...

Fun Time on the International Charts

February 19th, 2006

Fun with Dick and Jane added an handful of new markets this week and that allowed the film to remain in sixth place with $6.00 million on 2645 screens in 49 markets for a running tally of $63.30 million. The film opened in first place in Spain with $1.54 million on 316 screens and in the Netherlands with $475,000 on 75 screens over the weekend and $520,000 in total. It took first place in Argentina as well with $136,000 on 48. On the other hand, it had to settle for second place during its debut in Denmark with $319,000 on 45 screens over the weekend and $335,000 in total. Holdovers include the U.K. where the film was down 56% to $699,000 over the weekend and $10.44 million in total and Italy with a 55% decline to $594,000 over the weekend and $4.83 million in total.

Six Pack Sit Atop Sales Chart

February 18th, 2006

There were six new releases charting this weekend with Just Like Heaven leading the way on the rental charts with $7.40 million in combined rentals. More...

Still Having Fun on the International Charts

February 12th, 2006

Fun with Dick and Jane fell to sixth place with $6.45 million on 2487 screens in 43 markets for an running international total of $53.27 million so far, which is less than half of what it earned domestically. The film opened in Singapore with $450,000 from 30 screens and managed to repeat in first place in Italy with $1.33 million on 314 screens over the weekend and a $3.96 million total after two weeks. Meanwhile in the U.K. the film fell from first to third, but it still earned $1.59 million on 374 screens for a three-week total of $9.34 million. More...

Flightplan Comes out on Top

February 11th, 2006

For the second week in a row, Flightplan lead the way on the rental charts taking in $8.22 million in DVD rentals. That was down just 15% from its opening, which pushed its total to $18.07 million so far. More...

International Details: Jet Li has Nothing to Fear

February 5th, 2006

Jey Li's latest Hong Kong production, Fearless, (a.k.a. Huo Yuan Jia) started its international run in sixth place with $7.35 million on 596 screens in 6 markets. The film finished first in four Asian markets including China with $1.39 million, Taiwan with $630,000, Singapore with $605,000 and Malaysia with $590,000. Paradoxically, the film's best market was its home market of Hong Kong, where it had to settle for a close second place with $2.03 million on just 48 screens over the full week. So far there is still no North American release date, but with this start, that should change soon. More...

Flightplan Soars to the Top of the Home Market

February 4th, 2006

Flightplan was the clear winner on this week's home market charts taking first on the rental charts with $9.66 million and also finishing first in sales, (as usual, no sales numbers were released). More...

DVD Releases for January 24, 2006

January 23rd, 2006

It's another slow week for DVDs with little in the way of release worth renting and there's nothing here I would rate as must have. Because of that, there's no DVD Pick of the Week, which is probably for the best as I'm spending too much on DVDs as it is. On a side note, things definitely start to pick up next week. More...

International Details: Chicken Littler

December 23rd, 2005

Chicken Little fell out of the top five with $6.81 million on 3697 screens in 32 markets for a $66.03 million running tally. The film had no major openings while holdovers varied from strong in France, (down just 29% to $3.03 million on 910 screens for the weekend and $7.75 million in total) to very poor in Italy, (down 59% to $658,000 on 367 for a $6.39 million total). The film has yet to open in several major markets including the U.K., Japan, and Germany and when it does it should have no trouble topping its domestic total since it is already more than halfway there. More...

Not Quite Like Heaven

December 18th, 2005

Just Like Heaven dipped at the box office falling out of the top five with $4.53 million on 1609 screens in 30 markets over the weekend for an early total of $18.04 million internationally. Its best opening was in Belgium where it debuted in second place with $252,000 on 40 screens over the weekend and $290,000 in total. It also had debuts in Holland with $139,000 on 57 screens over the weekend and $167,000 overall, and in Greece with $116,000 on 24 and Norway with $113,000 on 26. Holdovers include Germany where the film dropped 24% to $890,000 on 273 screens for a total of $2.41 million so far, while in Spain the film fell 39% to 718,000 on 200 screens for a two-week total of $3.09 million. More...

International Details: Flightplan has Bumpy Landing

December 11th, 2005

Flightplan fell out of the top five with $5.13 million on 2,430 screens in 38 markets for a total of $94.65 million on the international scene. It did fall from second to sixth on this week's charts, but it should still reach $100 million by this time next week. Its best market of the weekend was the U.K. where it remained in second place with $2.14 million on 416 screens for a two-week total of $6.59 million. More...

Harry Grows as Goblet Goes Global

November 30th, 2005

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire added nearly two dozen more markets this weekend, including several major ones, and that allowed its international haul to grow to $96.8 million on 9,488 screens in 42 markets for a two-week total of $208.9 million. New openings this weekend included a record-setting debut in both Italy, with $9.9 million on 869 screens, and in Belgium, with $2.8 million on 177. The film had the second-best opening in several markets, including Spain at $8 million on 527 screens, Brazil with $3.9 million on 550, the Netherlands with $2.7 million on 252, and Greece with $1.5 million on 84. While it didn't set records, it also had very impressive debuts in both Japan, where it made $14.2 million on 856 screens, and in Argentina, with $1.1 million on 156. It should be noted that in Japan the film was on par with other entries in the franchise, and that should lead to a $100 million box office in that market. Speaking of $100 million markets, the film is on track to reach that milestone in the U.K. after dropping just 38% during its second weekend there, adding $15.9 million on 536 screens for running tally of $51.3 million. Holdovers were less kind in Mexico, where it was down 47% to $3.7 million for the weekend and $13.7 million in total, and in Germany, where it fell 53% to $10.3 million on 1,248 screens for a $34.9 million running total. So far the film has nearly $410 million worldwide, which puts it just shy of the Top 50 All-Time, but with several more markets coming this week (including a trio of major ones in France, Australia and South Korea), the film should have no trouble making it there by this time next week. More...

Potter Piles on the Pounds (and Euros and Yuan and Krone...)

November 23rd, 2005

In a result that surprised no one, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire topped the international charts with a fantastic $85.5 million on 4,268 screens in just 16 markets, which was more than the rest of the top 30 combined. This isn't quite as big an opening as Prisoner of Azkaban's $87.2 million, but that film opened in more markets and on more screens, giving Goblet of Fire a significant advantage when it comes to long-term potential. The film was first in every one of its markets, and even set records in many of them, including the U.K., where it earned $25.6 million on 535 screens for the best 3-day weekend ever. In Germany, it made $21.68 million on 1,243 screens, breaking the record for biggest 4-day weekend, while in Denmark its opening was $2.85 million on 97 screens for the best 3-day weekend. It just missed setting records in Taiwan, where it earned $3.5 million on 184 screens, the second biggest opening there behind just Kung Fu Hustle, and it had the third best opening in Mexico with $6.8 million on 654 screens. Other key markets included China, at $3.4 million on 349 screens, Austria, with $2.5 million on 173, Norway, with $2.38 million on 109, Sweden, also with $2.38 million on 168, and Thailand, with $2 million on 218. Next week Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will open in several more major markets including Japan, Italy, and Spain, while it should have million dollar openings in Brazil, Argentina, and others. More...

Flightplan has Mile High Weekend

November 16th, 2005

It was a first place finish for Flightplan this weekend with $15.2 million on 3,484 screens in 39 markets for a running tally of $60.2 million on the international scene. The film had several first place finishes including $2.8 million on 303 screens in Spain, $1.6 million on 313 screens in Australia, $570,000 on 85 screens in the Netherlands. It also performed well in France with $2.3 million on 500 screens finishing in third place, South Korea with $2.1 million on 120 screens in South Korea, and in Russia with $750,000 on 160 screens. Holdovers include a $1.3 million, first place finish on 303 screens in its second weekend in Italy and $1.3 million on 660 screens during its fourth weekend in Germany for a total of $12.4 million total in the market. More...

Zorro Slips but Stays on Top

November 9th, 2005

The Legend of Zorro saw serious declines in many major markets, but was still able to take top spot on the international charts with $17.5 million on 6,150 screens in 60 markets for an international total of $60 million so far. In France, the film fell by 57% to $2.46, and in Spain it fell by 46% to $1.71 million, but remained first in both markets. Meanwhile, it was down 64% in the UK to $1.18 million. It did show surprising legs in Germany, where it was down just 25% to $1.33 million, in Holland down 27% to $270,000, and in Turkey where it was down just 8% to $275,000. However, in that last market, it was one of only two films in the top ten to suffer week-to-week declines. More...

International Weekend: Zorro's Start Far From Legendary

November 2nd, 2005

The Legend of Zorro started its international run with a nearly worldwide day-and-date release, coinciding with its US domestic launch. This allowed the film to take top spot easily on the international charts with $27 million. However, it was playing on 6,140 screens in 50 markets, giving in a rather lame per screen average. The film finished first in many markets, including France with $5.8 million on 690 screens, Spain with $2.8 million on 550 screens, Mexico with $1.4 million on 500, China with $1.38 million on 250, Brazil with $1 million on 319, and Russia with $1 million on 301. But it also struggled in many of the major markets, finishing second in Germany with $1.65 million on 674 screens, third place in the U.K. with $2.8 million on 485 and, and fourth in Italy and South Korea with $1.25 million on 500 and $1.06 million on 160 screens respectively. Even with the better legs most films have on the international scene and a few more markets left to open, The Legend of Zorro will struggle to reach $100 million internationally, which is well below the original. More...

International Weekend: Curse Remains Unbroken

October 26th, 2005

For the third weekend in a row Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit led the race on the international charts. This time it added $15.75 million on 3,782 screens in 32 markets to its total of $63.7 million so far. Slightly more than half of the film's weekend haul came from the U.K. where it added $8.3 million over the weekend, down 26.5% from its opening. It now has $29.4 million in that market, which is nearly half of its international total. Holdovers in other major markets were equally impressive as the film dropped just 19% in Germany to $1.86 million and 24% in France to $2.22 million. On the other hand, the film doubled its opening weekend haul in the Netherlands, taking in $440,000 over the weekend and $960,000 during its run. There was not much on the new openings front, but the film did take first place in Belgium with $427,000 on 86 screens, but that was since Wednesday. More...

International Weekend: Wallace and Gromit a Smashing Success

October 19th, 2005

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit crushed the competition on the international charts this weekend earning a stunning $26.4 million in just eight markets for an early international total of $40.3 million. Unsurprisingly, the film's best market was the U.K., which is the home of Nick Park and Aardman Animations. There, the film pulled in an amazing $11.3 million on 502 screens over the weekend ($16.2 million previews), and beat the nearest competition by a factor of nine. The film also opened in first place in France with $2.88 million on 538 screens, Germany with $2.28 million on 680 screens, and in Austria with $225,000 on 94 screens. As for holdovers, the film fell just 23% to $1 million in Mexico for a $2.65 million total there, and 17% in Spain with $830,000 for the weekend and $2.5 million in total. It wasn't so fortunate in Australia and New Zealand, falling 54% and 78% respectively, but it was a post-holiday weekend there and large drop-off for a film of this type is expected. More...

Thick Fog Foils Box Office

October 17th, 2005

How bad was the weekend box office? Here's a clue... the number one film would have placed fifth during the same weekend last year. It goes without saying that there was a significant drop-off at the box office this weekend, down 16.2% from last weekend, but more importantly down 9.6% from last year. The Fall movie session has now brought in a total of $705.8 million, up by just 3.1% from last year, while the year-to-date total has hit $6.733 billion, down 6.5% from the 2004. I don't see it getting much better next weekend either. More...

Internationl Round-up: Company Nine Reaches $14 Million

October 16th, 2005

Company 9 remained in first place in Russia, its home market, down just 13% to $4.3 million for a running total of $14.3 million, which is well ahead of Revenge of the Sith's final box office in the market (which was just shy of $10 million). More...

Will Elizabethtown be Fogged In?

October 14th, 2005

A trio of wide releases hit the theatres today, but none of them seem to have what it takes to become a breakout hit. With very few strong contenders at the box office this weekend, however, all three should still make it into the top five. More...

Corrected - Wallace and Gromit Capture Top Spot

October 10th, 2005

It was a bad weekend at the box office. Granted, the box office hit $104 million over the weekend, up 17.6% from last weekend, but it was down 2.9% from last year, making this a weak start to October. The fall box office is still ahead of last years pace by 4.9% at $581.8 million, but year-to-date, 2005 is off by 6.5% at $6.608 billion. More...

The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming!

October 9th, 2005

Company 9 opened in its native market of Russia with a stunning $5.0 million over the weekend and $6.25 million including the midweek numbers, which is better than Revenge of the Sith's opening in that market. This also means there were two films that did so well in their local markets that they managed to place in the top five overall. More...

Full House for new Releases

October 7th, 2005

Five new films are opening in varying degrees of wideness from 3,645 theatres for Wallace and Gromit to 969 for The Gospel. All while all five could have an impact at the box office, the real question is whether the overall market can rebound from last weekend's setback. More...

Serenity's Start is Nothing to get Excited About

October 3rd, 2005

The mini-winning streak the box office was on came to a crashing end this weekend as the total box office was only $88 million, down 11.4% from last weekend and a stunning 21.7% from last year. Of course, this time last year was the first weekend in October, so the year-to-year drop-off is to be expected. Year-to-date, 2005 is behind 2004 by 6.6% at $6.479 billion to $6.934 billion. But at least the Fall is still ahead by 7.7% at $453 million, and at this point you have to take whatever good news you can find. More...

International Round-up: Red Eye Takes Off

October 2nd, 2005

Red Eye added another $3.7 million on 2,057 screens in 37 markets to its $22 million international total. The film opened in second place in both Spain with $850,000 on 215 screens and in the Netherlands with $250,000 on 59 ($300,000 including previews). More...

Studios Hoping the Box Office isn't too Serene

September 30th, 2005

Today is the last day of a very successful September. Unfortunately, this does mean the year-to-year gains we've been seeing will come to an end. This time last year was the first weekend in October and all three wide releases combined won't top the debut of Shark Tale. But hopefully that will be a momentary setback for an otherwise healthy Fall box office. More...

Foster Soars with Flightplan

September 26th, 2005

The weekend didn't go exactly as planned as the top two films finished in the opposite order to expectations, but the overall result was the same. The box office was up for the week by 16.4% and was up by an astounding 38.9% from last year. Since Labor Day, 2005 is up 15.6% over the same period last year with $332.7 million. Year-to-date, 2005 has brought in $6.36 billion in ticket sales, which is still behind 2004 but the gap has closed to 6.5%. More...

The Undead Need Love Too

September 23rd, 2005

September is usually an extremely weak month at the box office, but so far we've seen better than expected results and have had significant growth from last year. That trend will likely continue this weekend as there are two films that could top $20 million over the weekend. More...

Movie Website Updates for September 16 - September 22

September 22nd, 2005

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. Here the list of this week's releases, a couple of new sites and few updates. This week's list is a little shorter than usual partially because I'm moving today and had to complete the list on Wednesday. Because of this there was no site that really stood out as deserving the Weekly Website Award; perhaps next week there will be two winners. More...

2005 Preview: September

September 1st, 2005

September is the prime dumping ground for movie studios, where the films that just didn't work get ditched to die an undignified death. So why are there no less than five movies opening wide that look like they should be reasonably good? Either the studios are trying to counteract the poor reputation September has, or I have really bad taste in movies.

This month is very difficult to predict for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fluidity of the release schedule with several films on the bubble for wide releases. In fact, there are almost as many films that may or may not open wide in September than there are films with a solid release schedule. Predicting what a film will earn without knowing if it will open wide is tricky because you have to figure out how much it would earn if it opens wide, how much it will earn if it goes the limited route, and what are the odds it will open wide versus a limited release. This resulting weighted average is lower than a similar prediction for a movie that is known to be opening wide, which makes the month look even worse that it otherwise would. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 29 - May 5

May 5th, 2005

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. Here the list of this week's releases, a couple of new sites and few updates. Slow week with most of the sites being merely average or too early in their development to tell if the film is an award winning site or not. So in the end I decided not to hand out the award to any site. Hopefully next week things will pick up. 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.

Compare this performance with other movies…
