The selection of home market releases is rather soft this week. Sure, Cars 2 was a major hit at the box office, but it is the only major hit on this week's list. The best selling TV on DVD release is Californication, which is a cable show, while the top ten selling titles according to Amazon.com include limited releases, catalogue titles and direct-to-DVD releases. There are more second-tier Christmas releases than any other type of release. There are far fewer titles that are worth picking up than last week, and the the Pick of the Week contenders are even more limited. Transformers: Beast Wars comes out on a Complete Series Collection and that could be Pick of the Week material, but I'm still waiting for the screener.
There's an ... interesting mix of limited releases on this week's list, including a film that has been marked for Oscar glory for quite some time, and another that could creep onto our list of the biggest money losers of all time. Also of note, most of these films opened on Wednesday, while a couple don't open till tomorrow.
