DVD Sales - No Escape for Competition

February 23rd, 2009

There were a huge number of new releases this week, and they occupied the top four spots on this week's sales chart. The new number one was Madagascar 2 - Escape to Africa, which was released later in the week than the rest of the releases. Over the weekend it sold 1.68 million units and $27.10 million, plus an additional 89,000 units and $2.76 million from the two-pack. More...

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

February 23rd, 2009

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 3, 2009 - Part III

February 3rd, 2009

Wow. That was... Due to technical difficulties, late deliveries, and some misfiled DVDs, this week's list is a little later than normal (but it's still Tuesday, so it's not technically late). It is also a lot larger than normal with a record number of Spotlight reviews (23 in all, or 30 if you count individual movies). There are also some very high quality releases including Zack and Miri Make a Porno on either DVD or Blu-ray. However, given the subject matter of that film, I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. The best release of the week is, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist on DVD or Blu-ray, but especially Blu-ray, which is worth the upgrade. That film is the DVD Pick of the Week. With a record number of spotlight reviews, it goes without saying that the list had to be split up this week, with the first part found here, while the second part can be found here. (First time I had to separate the list into three parts.) More...

Most New Releases Turn Out to be Dogs

October 13th, 2008

With four wide releases this past weekend, I knew not all of them would be hits, but I also didn't expect all of them to be misses. Perhaps that's not entirely fair, and given the production budgets involved, not all films flopped at the box office, but enough did that overall box office receipts dropped 10% to $102 million. Compared to the same week last year, that still represents an increase, albeit by less than 3%, which is more or less in line with ticket price inflation. Year-to-date, 2008 and 2007 have both brought in $7.38 billion, but 2008 has had the edge the past few weeks and could retake the lead this upcoming weekend. More...

Doggoneit!

October 7th, 2008

Of the eight films that opened or expanded on Friday, only two were able to do some serious business, while most were lucky if they topped the Mendoza line by earning more than $2,000 per theater. It was just a disaster, in many ways. That said, it was still the first weekend in October and the overall box office was up 13% from last weekend to $113 million. More importantly, it was 35% higher than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date, 2008 closed the gap with 2007. 2008 is just a little below and 2007 a little above $7.25 billion. By this time next week, 2008 could retake the lead, at least in terms of raw dollars. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of October 3, 2008

October 5th, 2008

A busy week for new releases with more than a dozen sites here, but most were just average. The best of this week's selection was the Official Site for Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, which has enough of the basics, extras, and style to stand out. More...

Weekend Estimates: Beverly Hills Chihuahua Scores Healthy Win

October 5th, 2008

Beverly Hills Chihuahua rose above a very crowded field of openers to claim the box office crown, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. The movie scored Disney's biggest opening weekend in October with an estimated $29 million. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist also performed well with a $12 million debut in 2,421 theaters. That's a great return for a movie with a budget reported at $13 million. The other strong performer was Appaloosa, which expanded to 1,045 theaters and pulled in $5.015 million for an impressive 5th place. The rest of the wide openers didn't fare so well, although a couple of limited releases impressed... More...

Tight Competition Likely to Squeeze out Most Films

October 3rd, 2008

If you thought last weekend was too busy, this weekend is worse with eight films opening or expanding wide, or at least wide-ish. However, only one film is opening at saturation level (3,000 or more theaters) and one other is opening truly wide (2,000 or more theaters). After those two films, the rest of the new releases will be forced to fight over the table scraps. More...

2008 Preview: October

October 1st, 2008

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...

Contest - Infinite Prizes

September 26th, 2008

Usually when it comes to the box office prediction contest, we choose the obvious number one film for the upcoming weekend. Other times we choose the film that is opening the widest. Other times, like this week, we choose a film that is related to some of the prizes, which makes Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist this week's target film. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a set of postcards featuring Kat Dennings, as well as Brian Regan - The Epitome of Hyperbole on DVD, and NCIS - The Fifth Season on DVD. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a set of postcards featuring Kat Dennings and Brian Regan - The Epitome of Hyperbole on DVD, as well as Harold on DVD. Finally, one additional entrant will be chosen and they will win the final copy of Brian Regan - The Epitome of Hyperbole on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...
