DVD Sales: Alice Shuts Out New Releases

No new release was able to take top spot on this week's sales chart leaving Alice in Wonderland as the repeat champion. It added $12.34 million from 657,000 units sold to take its two-week totals to 2.75 million units and $52.47 million in consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 8th, 2010

This time of year is normally very slow at the home market. It's too late for the last of the winter blockbusters to find their way onto DVD, while it is too early for the flood of TV on DVD releases coming out to promote the upcoming season. However, thanks to a better than expected spring at the box office, we have another strong week at the top. The best-selling release is Shutter Island. While that movie is good enough to be worth picking up on its own, the DVD and Blu-ray are weak enough to prevent it from being the Pick of the Week. To find the Pick of the Week we have to go a little further down the sales list till we get to Not the Messiah: He's a Very Naughty Boy on Blu-ray from Amazon and Animation Express on Blu-ray.

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: From Paris With Love

From Paris With Love was a January release... oh boy. Then again, it was written by Luc Besson, who has given us a number of cool action movies over the years. Plus, it was directed by Pierre Morel who has just directed the massive surprise hit, Taken, and who made the breakout hit, District 13, which in just four years has influenced a number of films. Given the type of films these men make, I expected a stylish action film, and nothing more. Some might say I'm setting the bar a little too low, but can the film accomplish this task? More...

International Details: Foreign Releases Go Lala

There were more than a dozen foreign releases to reach the top 30 on the international chart, starting with Go Lala Go!. This Chinese film opened in first place in its native market and sixth place overall with $6.44 million on 655 screens. More...

International Details: Things are Looking Up for The Round Up

The Round Up opened in sixth place with $6.32 million on 632 screens in 3 markets. Of that, $5.67 million was earned on 602 screens in France, which was easily enough for first place in that market. More...

International Details: Princess Still Powerful

The Princess and the Frog may have slipped out of the top five internationally, but it still added $8.32 million on 3053 screens in 28 markets for a total of $143.18 million. It had no major market openings again this week, but it added $2.84 million on 689 screens over the weekend in France for a total of $27.30 million after a month of release there. This weekend the film debuted in Japan, which could help it return to the top five. Regardless, it has made enough money that it should show a profit, eventually. More...

International Details: Shutter Island is International Destination

Shutter Island started its international run with a sixth place finish this past weekend, earning $9.28 million on 1229 screens in 9 markets. The film opened in first place in Spain with $3.25 million on 406 screens. It had to settle for second place in Australia, in a virtual tie with Valentine's Day at $2.50 million on 250 screens. It's way too early to tell where the film will end up, but matching its domestic run internationally is a solid goal. More...

Presidents' Weekend Was Lovely

Okay. Wow. All three wide releases beat expectations, some by massive margins, which helped this year shatter the previous Presidents' Day long weekend record. The three-day tally this year was $205 million, ahead of the previous record by more than $16 million. And, adding in Monday, the total box office over four days was $239 million, nearly $20 million more than the previous best. (In both cases, the previous best was last year.) This helped push the year-to-date box office to $1.48 billion, which is 1.6% higher than last year's pace. However, ticket sales still lag behind, albeit by less than half a percent. More...

International Details: Squeakquel Squeezed out of the Top Five

For the first time during its international run, Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel missed the top five and placed sixth with $7.10 million on 3,699 screens in 42 markets for a total of $200.87 million internationally and $413.03 million worldwide. With no major market openings left, the film will likely fall further down the chart over the coming weeks, but it has already made a huge profit, so Fox will be more than happy. More...

The Streak Ends in More Ways Than One

In a shocking development, Avatar didn't win at the box office race over the weekend. Instead, the romantic drama Dear John, based on the Nicholas Sparks novel, took top spot. Unfortunately, while Dear John did much better than expected, the overall box office was still weak. Total box office was $114 million, which was 9% lower than last weekend and 26% lower than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date, 2010 has brought it $1.21 billion, which is 1.2% more than last year; however, for the first time admissions are down, by 0.8%. This is a troubling sign. More...

Weekend Estimates: Dear John Tops Avatar

Avatar's run at the top of the chart came to an end over the weekend, according to studio estimates released on Sunday morning. Its surprise vanquisher turned out to be Dear John, which ran up an impressive $32.4 million opening, a record for Superbowl weekend. Avatar was down almost 25% to $23.6 million -- its weakest weekend yet, in spite of an impressive list of Oscar nominations earlier in the week. But with $630 million in the bank now from North America alone, this can hardly be described a disappointment. More...

Any Oscar Bounce for Avatar?

It appears Avatar will walk away with yet another victory at the box office and it appears likely that it will set yet another record in the process. There are some factors that make the box office potential of all films a little more fluid this weekend. This includes the Super Bowl, which should draw away a lot of potential ticket buyers. Secondly, the Oscar nominations should help Avatar and a few other holdovers still playing in multiplexes. Depending on which factor is greater, we could keep pace with last year, or the slump could continue. More...

2010 Preview: February

Buy at AllPosters.com

2010 started in record-breaking fashion with the most lucrative January of all time, and only the second time that the box office reached $1 billion before the end of the month. The first year to do that was 2009. There were two problems preventing real celebration, however. Firstly, roughly 30% of the total box office for the month came from one film, Avatar, which was a holdover. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, most films that were released / expanded wide in January missed expectations. Because of this, February starts on a bit of a down note. Compared to last year, the top of the list is about as strong with a couple of films aiming for $100 million, while there are fewer films that seem like they will bomb at the box office. More...
