DVD Sales: Mega Close Race

March 8th, 2011

There was a close race for top spot on the sales chart this week between two new releases. Megamind won that race with 949,000 units / $13.28 million to 923,000 units / $12.92 million for Due Date. But to be fair to Megamind, it went on sale on Friday not Tuesday like Due Date did. More...

Awards Season: Swan Wins Its Independence

February 26th, 2011

Independent Spirit Award hand out their nominations earlier than the other major awards, but don't hand out the hardware till the day before the Oscars. The long wait ended last night and Black Swan became the big winner sweeping the four categories it was nominated it. It wasn't the only winner of the night, however. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 22nd, 2011

February 22nd, 2011

It's a pretty good week on the home market, all things considered, with two $100 million first-run releases on this week's list. On the other hand, there doesn't feel like a whole lot of depth and there are about as many featured reviews as other releases, if you count late reviews and ones where I'm still waiting on the screeners. One of these late reviews, Megamind could be the Pick of the Week, but I'm giving the Blu-ray one last chance to arrive before its release on Friday. More...

Awards Season - SAG Solidifies Awards Season Picture

December 17th, 2010

The SAG nominations were handed out this week, and while there were a couple of interesting notes, overall there was a decided lack of surprises. The King's Speech and The Fighter led the way with four nominations each, while Black Swan and The Kids Are All Right were right behind with three. All four have been considered Awards Season players for a long time, so their success with SAG merely confirms that and is not shocking in the least. More...

Awards Season: Winter Showed Its Independence

December 1st, 2010

The official arrival of winter is still a few weeks away, but Winter's Bone ushered in the start of Awards Season picking up seven Independent Spirit Award nominations. This was the most of any film, with The Kids Are All Right placing second with five. More...

Last Train Arrives at the Top of the Per Theater Chart

September 8th, 2010

Last Train Home earned top spot on the per theater chart with $20,418 in its lone theater over the three-day portion of the weekend. The only other film to reach the $10,000 milestone was My Dog Tulip with $11,550, also in one theater. More...

Top of Per Theater Chart is up for the Taking

August 30th, 2010

No film was able to top the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart with Takers coming very close with an average of $9,298. More...

Doc Tops Per Theater Chart

August 24th, 2010

The Tillman Story led the way on the Per Theater Chart with an average of $13,046 in four theaters. Given its reviews, it could last a long time in theaters. Soul Kitchen was the only other film to reach the $10,000 mark with an average of $10,458 in two theaters. More...

Get Low Finishes High on the Per Theater Chart

August 3rd, 2010

Get Low opened in first place on the per theater chart with an impressive average of $22,046. I expect it will be able to expand significantly. Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child was down barely more than 1% and added $17,226, while still playing in just one theater. The final film to make the $10,000 club was The Concert with an average of $10,871 in two theaters. More...

Weekend Estimates: Inception Sees Off Schmucks

August 1st, 2010

Inception will see off a strong challenge from Dinner for Schmucks to record a third straight win at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. Inception will be down about 36% from last weekend at $27.5 million for a cume to date of $193.3 million. Schmucks hit the ground running on Friday, topping the chart with $8.4 million, but will settle for second place over three days with $23.3 million. That's very much in line with Steve Carell's previous comedy outing this year, Date Night, which opened with $25.2 million (admittedly at a slightly quieter time of year). More...

Death of Limited Releases

July 30th, 2010

There are a number of limited releases on this week's column. However, only one of them, Get Low, is earning overwhelmingly positive reviews and it is clearly the best bet for potential breakout success. On the other hand, if you live in Canada, The Death of Alice Blue is worth keeping an eye on to see if will expand to a theater near you. More...
