While three of the top five renters this week were new releases
, none of them did particularly well. Leading the way was The Lake House
with $7.92 million, which is merely adequate given the film's theatrical run.

No films topped $10,000 on the per theatre charts, but there were three films in a very close race at the top of the list.
Stolen led the way with $8,829 in its single theatre, while Giuliani Time earned $8,661, also in just one theatre.
Easily the widest release of the three was Sketches of Frank Gehry, which played in a grand total of 2 theatres and pulled in an average of $8,620.

Hard Candy easily won the race on the per theatre charts, taking in nearly $60,000 in 2 theatres for an average of $29,025.
Friends with Money slipped to second place with a still impressive $17,611 average in 42 theatres, which bodes well for Friday when it is scheduled to open in several hundred more theatres.
The only other movie in the $10,000 club was the overall box office leader, Scary Movie 4, with $11,167.

Usually there is one film that looks like it could breakout of its limited release and score some mainstream success, maybe. Some weeks no film has a real chance at escaping its art house origins. This week, there are three such films. However, while this is a bounty for moviegoers, the competition could hurt the films.

Back to normal levels of traffic on this list, but like last week there's not an over abundance of huge sites on this week's list. I hope that changes soon as the summer box office season is just around the corner. The best of the bunch this week is Hard Candy
- Official Site
, which has been slowly growing for months.

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. This week's winner was one of last week's best sites, She's the Man
- Official Site
, which added a lot of content this week including some old stuff that was off site for previous weeks.

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. It was another slow week with nothing really grabbing my attention and nothing award-winning, (although there are a couple of sites that show promise). Hopefully some of the summer blockbusters will start launching flash sites so this slump can end.
