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...

DVD Releases for January 31, 2006

January 30th, 2006

This week is busier than it has been for about a month, but there still isn't much in the way of contenders for the DVD Pick of the Week. The best of the bunch is Corpse Bride - Buy from Amazon, but the special features are not up to par and that prevents it from being a true DVD Pick of the 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.

Cowboys find Gold in Brokeback Mountain

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...

Her Shoes Fall out of Fashion

December 4th, 2005

Here's this week's round-up of international box office numbers.

In Her Shoes fell out of the top five this week with $3.95 million on 2,050 screens in 23 markets for a $30.60 million international box office. The film held up amazingly well in Spain, dropping just 8% to $810,000 on 290 screens, but it wasn't as fortunate in France where it lost more than half its opening, earning $400,000 on 293 screens, falling out of the top ten in the process. It suffered a similar fate during its third weekend in the U.K. where it was down 55% to $736,000 on 268 screens, but the film already has $7.06 million there, which is better than its domestic run if you take into account the relative sizes of the two markets. 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.

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.

Chicken's Little Start on the International Scene is Lucrative

November 13th, 2005

Chicken Little started its international run with day-and-date debuts in 9 markets earning $5.54 million on 900 screens, just missing the top five in the process. Its best market was kid-friendly Mexico with $3.1 million on 600 screens, which is about on par with its opening domestically. On the other hand, the film broke records in Malaysia with $477,000 on 40 screens. Other results include a first place debuts in Russia with $1.1 million on 197 screens and in Taiwan with $463,000 on 18 screens, (including previews). More...

Zorro Steals the Show

November 6th, 2005

With The Legend of Zorro earning a nearly worldwide release this past weekend, and the imminent release of another juggernaut, there was little room for other releases this weekend on the international scene. More...

Surprise Twist on the International Charts

October 30th, 2005

Oliver Twist opened in two major markets over the weekend, placing second in both France with $2.4 million on 547 screens and Italy with $1.3 million on 301 screens. Other markets include $360,000 in the U.K. for a $3.6 million total there and $140,000 in Poland for $1.1 million. Add it up and you have $4.2 million for the weekend and $9.6 million in total. More...

Brothers are not so Grimm

October 23rd, 2005

The Brothers Grimm dropped just 35% during its second weekend in France adding $2.1 million to its $5.7 million total there. In Germany, the film performed a nearly the same level falling 36% to $950,000 over the weekend and $2.9 million during its run. Overall the film made $4 million for a $27.8 million runny tally and that places it fourth on this week's charts. While the film struggled domestically, it is doing quite a bit better on the international scene, and could show a profit sometime during its home market run. 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...

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...

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...

Movie Website Updates for September 30 - October 6

October 6th, 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, including this week's winner, Waiting... - Official Site. More...

2005 Preview: October

October 1st, 2005

October is a transition month. No holidays to boost the box office, but at least Halloween will help the few Horror films playing during the month. There are no sure-fire winners this month, nor does there appear to be any major flops. The competition will again hurt box office potentials as there are on average four wide releases each weekend, and that is way too many. Also worth noting, with award season heating up, there are more and more limited releases that could make noise at the box office (Good Night and Good Luck, for example). Discuss the upcoming movies on our forums. 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...

Movie Website Updates for September 23 - September 29

September 29th, 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, including this week's winner, The Greatest Game Ever Played - Official Site. 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...
