We have one of our biggest selections of prizes ever for our box office prediction contest this week with a total of six posters, two T-shirts, and 2 DVDs being given away.
Prizes come from The Departed, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, I Am a Sex Addict, and more.
To win, you need to predict the opening weekend for The Departed.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over will win posters from both The Departed and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, a Police T-shirt from The Departed, and I Am a Sex Addict.
Meanwhile the person who comes the closest to the film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win posters from both The Departed and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, an Irish T-shirt from The Departed, and Windy City Heat on DVD.
In addition, two other lucky winners will be chosen at random and each will receive an additional The Departed poster.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Another busy week, but without much in the way of first run releases. There were a couple of limited releases that looking intriguing, and some special editions worth the upgrade, but in the end there were only two real contenders for DVD Pick of the Week: The Office - The Complete Second Season - Buy from Amazon and Smallville - The Complete Fifth Season - Buy from Amazon.
In a photo finish, Smallville - The Complete Fifth Season - Buy from Amazon won out, but this was partially because no matter how good The Office is, it's not as good as the original.

Friends with Money easily led the per theatre charts after earning nearly $600,000 in 28 theatres for an average of $21,048.
It was the only film to top $10,000 on the per theatre charts, although last week's winner, Brick came awfully close with $9,490 in 21 theatres.

This week we have another three-way contest with prizes from Show Me, I Am a Sex Addict, and Barry Manilow.
As always, the object of the contest is to predict the opening box office of a certain film with the person who comes closest to predicting the opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over, winning the prize.
To win Barry Manilow - Music and Passion, predict the opening weekend of Scary Movie 4.
To win an autographed poster from I Am a Sex Addict, predict the opening weekend of Kinky Boots.
Finally, to win a copy of Show Me on DVD, predict the opening weekend of Hard Candy.
And, if that wasn't enough, of the three winners, the person whose margin of error is the lowest (on a percentage basis), will win a bonus prize.
Entries must be received by 10am, Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

It's a busy week for limited releases, with the number of films on this week's list hitting double-digits (and that doesn't count Kinky Boots, which has a sneak peak this Saturday).
There are a few films that look poised for some measure of mainstream success, with Friends with Money leading the way.

It's a much busier week this week including several sites that I found through e-mails. Thanks for the tips. (On a side note, if you sent me an e-mail regarding a movie site and I forgot it, please send it again. It was a big list this week and I'm almost positive one or two sites slipped between the cracks.) Unfortunately, while there are plenty of sites on this week's list, there's not a lot of top notch ones. The movie on this list that made me the most excited was The Simpsons Movie
, and that one doesn't even have an official movie site, just the teaser trailer
