DVD and Blu-ray Releases for September 13th, 2011

It is an incredibly busy week on the home market with several major releases, including Thor on Blu-ray, as well as Star Wars The Complete Saga, which comes out this Friday. Unfortunately, neither of the screeners have arrived yet, so it is hard to tell if they are pick of the week material. I figured Star Wars would easily take that honor, but the changes made have pissed off enough people that I think it's best that I hold off making a judgment till after it arrives. After spending way too long trying to pick between the two, I'm going with Degrassi: Season Ten, Part Two instead. More...

DVD Rentals - State Solid

State of Play remained on top of the rental chart this week with roughly 20% more rentals than Crank 2 - High Voltage, which was the best new releases on this week's list. More...

DVD Rentals - Play it Again

Just as it did on the sales chart, State of Play topped all new releases finishing first on this week's rental chart. More...

DVD Rentals - Duplicity Earns an Honest Win on the Rental Chart

There were five new release to reach the top 30 on the rental chart this week, led by a pair that took the top two spots. Duplicity came out ahead with roughly 40% more rentals than Fighting, which opened in second place. More...

DVD Rentals - Last Starts in First Place

There were only half as many new releases to reach the top 30 on the rental chart this week as there were on the sales chart, but we still had a new number one. The Last House on the Left opened in first place with nearly 50% more rentals that I Love You, Man. More...

DVD Sales - Hannah Dominates DVD Sales

There were eight new releases to reach the top 30 on the sales chart this week, and one of them dominated the chart. The big winner was Hannah Montana the Movie, as the Tween Queen opened in first place after selling 1.23 million units and generating $20.59 million in opening week consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD Releases for August 18th, 2009 - Part I

It's that time of year again. It's getting closer to the start of the new TV season, which means there is a flood of TV on DVD releases this week. And next week. And all next month. While there are several TV on DVD releases that are worth picking up, like Dexter - Season Three, there are no releases this week that combines an excellent show plus excellent extras, and therefore there are none that rise to the level of DVD Pick of the Week. However, while there are not a lot of top tier releases, there are plenty of total releases and this week's list had to be split into two. The second part can be found here. More...

DVD Releases for August 18th, 2009 - Part II

It's that time of year again. It's getting closer to the start of the new TV season, which means there is a flood of TV on DVD releases this week. And next week. And all next month.

In the Know

It was a relatively predictable weekend at the box office with all five films finishing in the right order and within an acceptable margin of error. The main difference was the top three films were more spread out than expected, which gave Knowing a much easier win. Overall, the box office pulled in $105 million, which was 4.5% higher than last weekend, but as expected, it was 6.6% lower than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date 2009 has pulled in $2.20 billion, which is 12% higher than last year's pace. More...

Witch Wins the Race, but Box Office Slows Down

For the first time in a long time, 2009 showed signs of weakness at the box office as all three new releases were unable to match expectations. Overall the box office was down 14% from last weekend to $101 million. More troubling was the fact that is was down 16% from the same weekend last year. However, to be fair, this weekend last year saw the debut of Horton Hears a Who, which was the biggest hit of 2008 at that point and opened with $45 million. More...

Weekend Estimates: Witch Mountain Opens with $25 Million, Watchmen Struggles

Disney remake Race to Witch Mountain made a solid debut over the weekend, according to studio estimates released on Sunday morning. The adventure movie picked up about $25 million, enough for a comfortable first place. Watchmen, which was widely tipped to earn a second weekend on top, dropped 67% to $18.07 million, not far ahead of Universal remake Last House on the Left, which earned a decent $14.86 million opening. More...

Movie Website Reviews for the Weekend of March 13th, 2009

After several weeks without much in terms of Award-worthy sites, we have two sites this week that are both worthy of the award: The Last House on the Left's Official Site and Race to Witch Mountain's Official Site. The former has better design, the latter has better interactive features. Both should sell the movie to their respective audiences, and both are recipients of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Will Watchmen Win the Race to the Top?

There are some who think there will be a close race for first place on the box office chart this weekend with Watchmen having a shot at repeating on top ahead of Race to Witch Mountain. I am not one of those people. After bowing to the majority two weeks in a row, I think Watchmen will see a bigger than expected drop-off, while Race to Witch Mountain will open with a larger than expected box office. On a related note, 2009's winning streak over 2008 could come to an end, as this weekend last year saw the debut of Horton Hears a Who, which opened with $45 million. That's more than the consensus prediction for the top film over this weekend. In fact, it could be more than the three new releases will earn combined. More...

2009 Preview: March

2009 got off to such a great start that I didn't think February would continue winning, but so far that has proven to be the case, for the most part. Now March has a great chance of continuing that run with several big hits, including three potential $100 million movies. At the beginning of the year, I didn't think there would be so many hits in March, but a high tide lifts all boats, and the more people see movies, the more trailers they see in theaters, and the more likely they are to watch the upcoming movies.
