DVD Releases for December 16, 2008

This week is a confusing one on the home market as there are DVDs coming out on Tuesday the 16th, as usual, and on Friday the 19th, and Sunday the 21st as well. While there are a number of great releases that are spread out over three days, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is the best on any day, and worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week. More...

DVD Rentals - Juno Enjoys the Number One Spot

Doing what it couldn't do during its theatrical run, Juno finished first during its opening week on the rental charts. It led all movies with $8.38 million in rentals. More...

DVD Sales - Juno has Twin Wins

Like it did on the rental chart, Juno led a large group of new releases on the sales chart and earned first place overall. During its first week of release, the film sold 1.44 million units for opening week sales of $25.37 million. More...

DVD Releases for April 15, 2008

Not a particularly strong week for DVD releases this week. Sure, there are a few worth picking up, but there were far more that felt like filler. In fact, there was only one contender for DVD Pick of the Week, Juno. I would certainly recommend the Blu-ray version over either DVD edition. More...

Cloverfield Shoots for the Stars (Wars)

Records fell this week as Cloverfield became the biggest film ever to debut on Martin Luther King long weekend, as well as setting a few other records (including topping Star Wars long standing January opening record). This helped the weekend bring in $155 million over three days, which was 19% more than last weekend. It was also 56% more than the same weekend last year. However, since Martin Luther King long weekend was a week earlier that isn't a fair comparison. Compared to last year's Martin Luther King long weekend, 2008 was ahead by 21% over three days and 19% over four. More...

Bucket Full of Cash

It's the second weekend of January and we still haven't seen a January release top the charts. This time the biggest hit was a wide expansion from December, which not only finished first, but also helped the overall box office reach $130 million. This is about 7% lower than last weekend, but roughly 1% more than the same weekend last year, and this weekend last year was Martin Luther King Weekend, which helped boost the numbers. More...

Weekend Estimates: Bucket List Just Beats First Sunday

If this was an election and we were CNN, we'd probably still be calling this weekend's box office race "too close to call". With weekend estimates in, The Bucket List heads the list with an estimated $19.54 million. That's just half a million or so ahead of First Sunday with $19 million, and final numbers could yet see the two positions reversed. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of January 11, 2008

We have twice as many sites as last week, but the real improvement is with the quality at the top. The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movies - Official Site - has an excellent mix of regular features, extras, and style and is the clear winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Contest - Good Luck

The film with the loudest buzz of the month is opening next week and that film, Cloverfield, is this week's target film. It's going to be a hard contest to win as this film could open with $5 million or $50 million, I really have no clue on this one. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of White Noise 2 on DVD and a poster from In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale signed by Dr. Uwe Boll. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a copy of White Noise 2 on DVD and a poster from In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale signed by Dr. Uwe Boll. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

Drop in the Bucket

This week, we have three new wide release and there are also a couple of expansions. Add in several strong holdovers, and there could be quite a logjam on the top of the charts. Not every new release / wide expansion will take part in this bounty, with In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, which could turn out to be the worst movie of the year, likely to miss out. More...

Contest - Perfect Ten

As it will become very clear, very fast, the name of this week's contest, Perfect Ten, refers to the prizes and not the target film, which is In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. A Dungeon Siege Tale is the widest release next week, but I can't imagine it will be the number one film. In fact, I think it will earn a negative box office. I'm not sure how, but it will... In order to win the contest, however, one must simply predict the film's opening weekend box office (no negative numbers allowed). Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a poster from In the Name of the King signed by director Uwe Bolle, plus a copy of The Ten on DVD. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a signed In the Name of the King poster, plus a copy of The Last Legion on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

2008 Preview: January

It's the beginning of a new month, and a new year. This new beginning brings with it a sense of hope and exhilaration for many people, but this does not extend into the movie world. January is dominated by films from last year. Not only are holdovers going to overwhelm new releases at the box office for the next couple weeks, but with the award season heating up, most buzz is about who will win what. In fact, only Cloverfield seems to be able to rise above the award season buzz, but this is not a sure sign that the film will survive at the box office. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 22 - July 28

Another big week for movie sites with several excellent entries. In this crowded field there were a lot of sites that showed promise and could be just one big update away from winning the award. But this week the best of the best was World Trade Center - Official Site. Let's hope that the movie can live up to the site. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 24 - March 2

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. There was a three way race for top spot this week with Slither - Official Site taking home the award. However, it won based on equal parts what it is and what it should become once all the content marked coming soon is added to the site. More...
