DVD Releases for July 13, 2004

July 12th, 2004

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases and a few from the growing TV on DVD section. This week's pick of the week was a real buried treasure, so well buried that I couldn't find it. Currently, there isn't a single release in the top ten on Amazon's Sales Chart. And the top performer from this week's releases is a case of controversy over quality. More...

Close, but no Cigar

March 31st, 2004

No team could muster $10,000 per theatre this weekend, but two movies came awfully close. Bon Voyage, last week's winner, took top spot with an impressive $9,879 average in 6 theatres. Just $6 behind was Dogville which opened in 9 theatres. More...

Hello Lenin!

March 11th, 2004

While The Passion of the Christ finished first on the per theatre charts for the second weekend in a row, it the performance of a smaller movie, Goodbye, Lenin! that stole the show. Its per theatre average climbed nearly 10%. Now a movie having its per theatre average climb after the Oscars isn't surprising. However, Goodbye, Lenin! was ignored by the Oscar nomination committee. So the increase bodes very well for its long term success. More...

Oscars Boost Box Office of Several Films

March 8th, 2004

With its 11 Oscar wins and huge jump in theatre count, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King should have had the largest post-Oscar jump at the box office. And while in raw dollars it did, it was the lesser known The Barbarian Invasions that had the biggest percent jump. The Canadian film and winner of Best Foreign Language Film jumped more than 137% at the box office. Its per theatre average also jumped by nearly 40%, compared to the nearly 20% drop by Return of the King. More...

Numbers Readers Predicting Return of the King Oscar Sweep

February 29th, 2004

The final results are in from our Predict the Academy Awards Competition, and Numbers readers are forecasting a Lord of the Rings sweep at the ceremony tonight.

A stunning 90% of voters are calling for Lord of the Rings to win Best Picture and Peter Jackson to win Best Director - some of the strongest predictions we've seen in the 7 years we've been running the poll. The movie is also projected to win in every other category in which its nominated.

With no Rings stars nominated for acting awards though, some of the other results are still ripe for speculation. More...

February 29th, 2004

All week we've been using votes in the competition to predict Oscar winners. This afternoon we'll call the results in all the remaining categories, but this morning we have one more result to call... Best Foreign Language Film. More...

They Couldn't have Dreamt of a Better Opening

February 12th, 2004

It's obvious The Dreamers wasn't hampered by its NC-17 rating. Not only is its per theatre average of $28,526 the best of the week, it was the best this year beating Big Fish by more than $8,000. More...
