DVD Sales - New Releases Flood Sales Chart

September 3rd, 2008

New releases dominated this week's sales chart in a way that is rarely seen. Not only did we have a new number one, but there wasn't a single holdover in the top eight. That new number one was Camp Rock, which sold 535,000 units and generated $8.02 million in revenue. Next up was Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, which sold 414,000 units. However, with a higher average price it was actually the number one seller in terms of raw dollars with $9.16 million. More...

DVD Rentals - Street is Kings of the Rentals

September 3rd, 2008

New releases did well on the rental charts, but they did not dominate in the way they did on the sales chart. We still had a new number one as Street Kings topped the charts with nearly double the revenue of its nearest competitor. More...

DVD Releases for August 19, 2008, Part II

August 18th, 2008

This is the week that Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour makes its debut on DVD and Blu-ray. This movie was a huge hit theatrically, so it will be interesting to see how well it sells on the home market. However, while it is certainly a very good deal, I'm not sure it is a real contender for DVD Pick of the Week. For that we have to look to Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles on either DVD or Blu-ray, but there are also a few other releases worth checking out. There are are plenty of other releases, so much so that we had to split this week's list into two. Look for part I here. More...

Blueberries Take Flight on the Per Theater Chart

Per Theater Average Victory is no Walk in the Park

March 11th, 2008

Paranoid Park opened in first place on the per theater chart with an average of $14,914. The only other film to cross $10,000 was the overall box office leader, 10,000 B.C., with an average of $10,518. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of March 7, 2008

March 8th, 2008

After a slump in site that had much the in way of style, we have two sites that were in contention for the Weekly Website Award. While College Road Trip - Official Site - came close, it was CJ7 - Official Site - that took home the award. More...

Limited Releases Live for a Weekend

March 7th, 2008

Big list of limited releases, including one that's opening so wide it could reach the top ten and another that could expand wide later on. I wouldn't put money on either film doing that, but there's certainly a legitimate chance. More...
