DVD Releases for August 14, 2007

August 13th, 2007

It's a busy week for first-run releases, with five such films appearing on this week's list. But even with a couple of them being worth picking up, including Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD - Buy from Amazon, the cream-of-the-crop were releases of new special editions. This includes two Jim Henson films, Labyrinth - Anniversay Edition and The Dark Crystal - 25th Anniversary Edition, but the best of the best is Taxi Driver - Two-Disc Collector's Edition. More...

Per Theater Chart is Very Lucky this Week

January 17th, 2007

Seven films made it into the $10,000 club at the weekend, but none of them were able to earn much more than $11,000. Pan's Labyrinth continues to show very strong legs on the per theater chart despite expanding ever wider. This weekend the film earned nearly $2.2 million in 194 screens for an average of $11,180. Comedy of Power grew by nearly 9% to $10,945 in its lone theater, placing it second, less than $20 ahead of God Grew Tired of Us. Next up was Guru, which earned an estimated $760,000 in 71 theatres for a preliminary average of $10,704. The overall box office leader, Stomp the Yard, was next with an average of $10,645 in its 2,051 theaters. Long-term resident, Letters from Iwo Jima saw its first expansion this past weekend, growing from 5 theaters to 35 while its average remained strong at $10,464. Venus grew by more than 11% this week to reenter the $10,000 club with an average $10,079. More...

Movie Website Updates for January 6 - January 12, 2007

January 13th, 2007

A slow week, but that's not surprising. The movie industry is seasonal with peaks and valleys throughout the year. With movie websites, there tends to be the same peaks and valleys, just a few months earlier. (The same is true for DVDs, just a few months later.) While there are a few sites on this week's list that show promise, there are none that are really award-worthy. More...

Limited Releases - Oscar Blues

January 12th, 2007

This is arguably the worst time of year for limited releases. It is too late for Oscar Glory, there are no holidays to take advantage of, and there's a ton of competition from previous weeks. Because of this, there are only two limited releases on this week's list. More...

Movie Website Updates for December 30 - January 5, 2007

January 6th, 2007

Big list as I try to catch up after the holidays. I think I caught all the updates. Not only are there a lot of sites on this week's list, several of them are potential award winners with the best of the best being Smokin' Aces - Official Site. More...
