DVD Rentals - Lake has Lingering View on top of Rental Chart

Lakeview Terrace repeated on top of the rental chart this week, despite there being four new releases trying to cram into the top five. This week it was a close race as it earned just over 10% more than the second place Madagascar 2 - Escape to Africa. More...

DVD Releases for February 17, 2009 - Part II

This felt like a slow week to me, but looking at the list there were 15 spotlight reviews, which is a huge amount for one week. There are a large number of DVDs worth checking out, but looking at the top of the list, I think Christopher Titus - Love is Evol is the best DVD coming out this week, and the winner of the DVD Pick of the Week. As has happened pretty much every week this year, there are so many DVDs on this week's list that is had to be split into two. The second part can be found here. More...

DVD Rentals - Lake Viewed on the Home Market

While Lakeview Terrace only managed third place on the sales chart this week, it led all new releases and took first place on the rental chart, generating about 33% more revenue than last week's winner, Max Payne More...

DVD Sales - Open on Fire!

New releases dominated the DVD sales chart this week, taking the top three spots, four of the top five, and seven of the top ten. This includes a surprise number one film, Open Season 2, which took first place with 554,000 units sold, and it was the only release to crack $10 million with opening week sales of $11.07 million. More...

DVD Rentals - Saw Seen While Payne Maxed Out

New releases were just as spread out on the rental chart as they were on the sales chart, including taking the top two spots with Max Payne generating about 25% more revenue than Saw V. More...

DVD Sales - All Max and No Payne

New releases were all over the top 30 this week, including Max Payne, which took first place with 543,000 units sold for the week and $12.92 million in sales. More...

DVD Releases for January 20, 2009 - Part I

A terrible week for first run releases. There are five such releases on this week's list, but they has a combined haul of around $130 million, and nearly $100 million of that came from two films. With no big releases, we had to look other places for the DVD Pick of the Week. Repo! The Genetic Opera on Blu-ray is a clear contender for that title, but its lack of mass appeal is troublesome. This American Life - Season Two is a safer pick, but it is a Borders Exclusive release. Regardless of these issues, both releases are worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week. Despite the weakness at the top, there are still more than enough total releases to cause this column to stretch into two parts. The second part can be found here. More...

International Details - International Releases are Enthralling

There were nine international releases making their debuts on the charts this week, as well as several holdovers. The best of these films was Forever Enthralled, as the Chinese film took first place in its native market and sixth place internationally with $6.15 million on 1375 screens. More...

International Details - Bolting to the Top

Bolt started its run on the international charts in sixth place with $7.90 million on 1417 screens in 4 markets.

Meanwhile in Poland, it topped the charts with $855,000 on 120 screens, but this is par for the course as films of this nature tend to do very well in Poland. More...

International Details - Body is Best of the Rest and that\'s No Lie

Body Of Lies opened in a quartet of major markets, the U.K., Germany, Italy, and Russia, and that helped it climb into second place with $10.17 million on 2837 screens in 32 markets for a total of $33.62 million. It earned second place in both the U.K. with $1.48 million on 393 screens and in Germany where it scored $1.43 million on 427 screens.

More...

International Details - School Climbing Higher

Its best market was the U.K. where it added $1.46 million on 483 screens over the weekend for a total of $31.76 million. More...

International Details - High School Graduates to the Century Mark

High School Musical 3: Senior Year remained in second place with $14.63 million on 4413 screens in 30 markets for a total of $110.38 million internationally. This is more than it will make domestically by the end of its run, and at this pace hitting $200 million worldwide will not be an issue, as it has openings in Russia, Australia, and Japan still to go. Its biggest market of the weekend was Italy where it made $2.60 million on 487 screens over the weekend for a total of $9.02 million. Meanwhile, its biggest market overall was the U.K. with $31.44 million, including $2.39 million on 470 screens over the past weekend. More...

Next up for the film is Italy this weekend, while it doesn't end its run until Japan in February, so it could be in the charts for a long time. More...

High School is Box Office Valedictorian

The weekend proved profitable, with the overall box office $133 million, which was more than 33% greater than last weekend. More importantly, it was more close to 33% greater than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date 2008 has increased its lead over 2007, but it is still up by less than 1% at $7.67 billion to $7.63 billion. However, next weekend could be tricky as Halloween lands on a Friday, and Halloween is one of the worst days at the box office. More...

International Top Five - Eagle Flies to the Top

Eagle Eye reached the top spot on the international charts this weekend with $11.48 million on 3,546 screens in 45 markets for a total of $44.81 million.

Will We Hear Some Box Office Music?

One of the most unpredictable weekends in recent memory opens today, with the debut of High School Musical 3, but it is not the only new release of the week. There are two other wide releases, plus a re-release that could challenge for a spot in the top ten. Overall the box office compares very well to last year and unless something unexpected happens, 2008 should extend its lead over 2007. More...

Box Office is not in Payne, but not Exactly Healthy Either

It was a mixed weekend at the box office. The new releases were not able to match modest expectations, which caused the overall box office to drop 2% to $100 million compared to last weekend. However, this was close to 4% higher than the same weekend last year. Even better, year-to-date, 2008 has now just over $7.51 billion in ticket sales while at the same point in 2007, total receipts were just under $7.51 billion. With High School Musical 3 and Saw V opening this Friday, we could see continued growth at the box office. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of October 17, 2008

As we've seen already on the box office, the movies that came out this weekend were not strong, and neither were their sites. The best of the list was Passchendaele - Official Site, which was the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Weekend Estimates: Max Payne Makes Explosive Debut

Fox broke a dry spell over the weekend with two strong opening weekends. Video game adaptation Max Payne scored a good $18 million opening. That's not exactly blockbuster territory, but a good result for this time of year. Searchlight's The Secret Life of Bees also scored well. Beverly Hills Chihuahua continued its good run, falling 36% to an estimated $11.2 million, and $69 million in total. Two other openers were third and fourth, although both were close enough to Chihuahua that the rankings could easily be reversed when final results are announced on Monday. More...

Maximum Box Office or Payneful Weekend?

Another week, another four movies opening wide. At least the four films are widely different (violent action film, teenage sex comedy, political drama, and female-centric movie) and they shouldn't steal too many moviegoers from each other. On the other hand, none are doing particularly well with the critics, nor are they tracking well at the box office. Back to the original hand, five of seven wide releases from last year bombed, so this year has a shot at pulling ahead for the first time in a while. More...

Contest - Maximum Prizes

There's only one saturation level opener next week and that film, Max Payne, is this week's target film. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Max Payne. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win Mother or Tears on DVD, Feast II - Sloppy Seconds on DVD, and Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD.

Finally, one additional entrant will be chosen at random to win Yo Gabba Gabba! - The Dancey Dance Bunch on DVD, as well as Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

2008 Preview: October

September ends, and for that we are all very grateful. However, while we are entering the final push for 2008 at the box office, things don't look too rosy for the upcoming month. First of all, there are way too many films opening, including eight that are opening or expanding on the first weekend. Of those two, maybe three will thrive. Most will sink without being noticed, which could negatively affect the overall box office going forward. On the other hand, there are a few films opening this month that could be players come Awards Season, which is just around the corner. Perhaps this will help a few mid-level hits rise above the crowd. More...
