Awards Season - Juno Scores Hat Trick at Independent Spirit Awards

February 24th, 2008

The Independent Spirit Awards are one of the earliest to announce their nominees, but they don't hand out the hardware until almost the very end. This year the big winner was Juno with three awards, which could be followed by a couple of Oscars tonight. More...

Award Season - Juno and Dylan Have Plenty of Spirit

November 29th, 2007

It's the official start of award season as the Independent Spirit Award nominations were announced. Several films received nods, but I'm Not There and Juno were the big hits. More...

DVD Rentals - New Releases Hog Half the Spots on the Rental Chart

August 26th, 2007

New releases took three of the top five places on the DVD rental chart, including first place. Wild Hogs was the overall rental leader with $9.94 million, which was in line with Disturbia's opening last week. More...

DVD Sales - Sales Chart Goes Wild

August 26th, 2007

Wild Hogs led a healthy group of new releases to win the race on the DVD sales chart with 2.20 million units sold and $35.16 million in first week sales. More...

DVD Releases for August 14, 2007

August 13th, 2007

It's a busy week for first-run releases, with five such films appearing on this week's list. But even with a couple of them being worth picking up, including Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD - Buy from Amazon, the cream-of-the-crop were releases of new special editions. This includes two Jim Henson films, Labyrinth - Anniversay Edition and The Dark Crystal - 25th Anniversary Edition, but the best of the best is Taxi Driver - Two-Disc Collector's Edition. More...

Blades Cut Newcomers down to Size

April 9th, 2007

No new release made much noise at the box office this weekend and, even with the holdovers holding on better than expected, the overall box office still slipped to $124 million. That's roughly 3% lower than last weekend, but still 8% higher than the same weekend last year. Hopefully the new releases going 0 for 4 this weekend is a momentary blip and not a sign of weakness in the marketplace. More...

Blades Cut Competition to Shreds

April 2nd, 2007

March ended on a similar tone as it began, but not as strong as recent weeks. Overall the weekend total gross was $128 million, down 5% from last weekend. That is also down 10% from the same weekend last year. However, it is important to note that was the weekend Ice Age: The Meltdown opened with nearly $70 million and 2007 is still 6% ahead of 2006's pace. More...

Corrected - Weekend Estimates: Blades Skates to Glory

April 2nd, 2007

Blades of Glory made an impressive entrance over the weekend, earning $33 million, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. Its total was very much in line with our prediction on Friday, as it benefited from wide audience appeal. Meet the Robinsons, meanwhile, also had a good weekend, earning $25.1 million, as it drew in family audiences. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 24 - March 30, 2007

March 31st, 2007

Awesome. We are finally getting some major updates to the summer blockbuster movies. The ones people are watching to see if they break records. This includes the first half of the massively interactive website for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - Official Site. And while the site isn't done yet, it is still more than enough to win the Weekly Website Award. More...

Will March Go Out Like a Lamb?

March 29th, 2007

March started like a lion when Wild Hogs opened to nearly $40 million and was even more ferocious the weekend after that when 300 broke records. It is folklore that if March starts like a lion, it ends like a lamb. So what does this mean for this week's box office? Nothing, it's just folklore. The box office looks very vigorous this weekend with two top-tier releases opening at saturation level (3,000 or more theaters). As an added bonus, both films are aimed at different target demographics, so both could be big hits. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 10 - March 16, 2007

March 17th, 2007

We are starting to get some serious updates on the websites for the summer blockbusters, however, it will be a few more weeks before this list is dominated by such films. In the meantime, it is a website for a new release, Dead Silence - Official Site, that is the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 24 - March 2, 2007

March 2nd, 2007

Just an average week in terms of updates, but there are a couple sites of note including the winner of the Weekly Website Award, Wild Hogs - Official Site. More...

2007 Preview: March

March 1st, 2007

March, a month without a holiday. In fact, It's the only month without any holidays to help boost the box office and this prevents studios from releasing big blockbusters. However, it is not the weakest month either and there are a few midlevel hits coming out over the next four weeks and even a couple that could top $100 million More...

New Movie US Release Dates - February 11, 2007

Movie Website Updates for February 3 - February 9, 2007

February 9th, 2007

Still waiting sites for the big summer blockbusters to come online. In the meantime, this week is relatively busy, but with only a couple sites that look like they could be award-worthy once the features are added. The best of the best, and I use that term loosely, is Norbit - Official Site with a site that could be more entertaining than the movie it promotes. More...

Movie Website Updates for January 13 - January 19, 2007

January 20th, 2007

Another slow week, but its been that way for a while. I'm hoping that will change when the summer blockbusters start launching their full sites soon, in fact, Spider-Man 3's Official Site did go live this week, but it is mostly marked coming soon and too soon to give it the award just yet. More...

Movie Website Updates for January 6 - January 12, 2007

January 13th, 2007

A slow week, but that's not surprising. The movie industry is seasonal with peaks and valleys throughout the year. With movie websites, there tends to be the same peaks and valleys, just a few months earlier. (The same is true for DVDs, just a few months later.) While there are a few sites on this week's list that show promise, there are none that are really award-worthy. More...
