Night Three Weeks Long

May 19th, 2007

It was not a good week for new releases on the DVD rental chart. None were able to take a spot in the top three, and this left Night at the Museum in first place with $7.38 million for the week and $28.01 million during its run. More...

DVD Releases for May 8, 2007

May 8th, 2007

It is not a particularly strong week for DVD releases, and I think Spider-Man 3 had a lot to do with that as it is dominating the news so much that it scared studios enough to keep them from putting out their A-list releases. There were a few TV on DVD releases that caught my eye, like The 4400 - The Complete Third Season, as well as a few Special Editions, like Big - Extended Edition. But in the end I'm going with a double-shot of Canadian releases, Things to Do and Trailer Park Boys - Season 6, because I'm such a hoser. (Important note, you must import the latter title from Canada, but it's worth it.) More...

International Details - Taxi Still Picking Up Plenty of Passengers

March 25th, 2007

The French film, Taxi 4, just missed the top five with $3.94 million on 1255 screens in 7 markets for a total of $49.56 million. Obviously, most of that has come from France, $35.70 million in fact, but the film is also doing well in Russia with $10.63 million so far, including $2.22 million on 466 screens over the weekend. More...

International Details - Rushing to the Top

March 18th, 2007

There was quite an international flavor on the charts this past weekend with five local hits charting, and one more just missing that mark. The best of these was Lubov Morkov, which opened in sixth place with $5.38 million on 492 screens in 4 markets over the weekend and $6.28 million in total. Of this amount, $4.90 million on 427 screens was earned over the weekend in Russia while it managed $5.80 million including midweek numbers. More...

Girl has Reasonable Start on Per Theater Chart

February 6th, 2007

There was only one member of the $10,000 club this week as Factory Girl pulled in nearly $90,000 in 3 theaters for an average of $29,159. However, An Unreasonable Man came awfully close with $9,813 in its lone theater. More...

Per Theater Chart is Made

January 24th, 2007

Just the one film in the $10,000 Club this weekend, but it was a real stand up movie, if you know what I mean. The re-release of Mafioso took in nearly $30,000 in 2 theatres for an average of $14,983. More...

Award Season - First There's the Globes, then Comes the Gold

January 23rd, 2007

The Golden Globes were handed out last week, but the real winners were rewarded this weekend as the Golden Globe Bounce was in full effect. More...

Per Theater Chart is Very Lucky this Week

January 17th, 2007

Seven films made it into the $10,000 club at the weekend, but none of them were able to earn much more than $11,000. Pan's Labyrinth continues to show very strong legs on the per theater chart despite expanding ever wider. This weekend the film earned nearly $2.2 million in 194 screens for an average of $11,180. Comedy of Power grew by nearly 9% to $10,945 in its lone theater, placing it second, less than $20 ahead of God Grew Tired of Us. Next up was Guru, which earned an estimated $760,000 in 71 theatres for a preliminary average of $10,704. The overall box office leader, Stomp the Yard, was next with an average of $10,645 in its 2,051 theaters. Long-term resident, Letters from Iwo Jima saw its first expansion this past weekend, growing from 5 theaters to 35 while its average remained strong at $10,464. Venus grew by more than 11% this week to reenter the $10,000 club with an average $10,079. More...

Award Season - The Queen has Golden Dreams

January 16th, 2007

Only two films were repeat winners on tonights Golden Globes, Dreamgirls with three wins and The Queen with two. There were a few surprises along the way and some troubling signs for Oscar hopefuls. More...

Labyrinth Leads as Holdovers Dominate Per Theater Chart

January 9th, 2007

Pan's Labyrinth saw its theater count more than double this past weekend, but it was still able to win the race on the Per Theater Chart with $17,359 in 44 venues. Letters from Iwo Jima climbed to second place with $15,859, which represents a less than 10% drop-off from the weekend before. Notes of a Scandal showed amazingly strong resilience on the chart, as it dipped just 36% to $12,100, this despite quadrupling its theater count. Two other films just managed to top $10,000: Dreamgirls with $10,168 and Comedy of Power with $10,061. More...

2007 Preview: January

January 2nd, 2007

It is the beginning of a new year. A time to start fresh. So why do most of the new releases smell so stale? It's the January dumping ground, home to films that looked promising on paper but just didn't pan out. That doesn't mean there are no films that could be worth checking out. Out of the twelve new films opening wide this month (that's opening, not expanding), Smokin' Aces looks great and so does ... no, that's about it. Almost all of the new releases are likely to struggle at the box office and with critics alike. And to make matters worse, six of these new releases are going wide on the same weekend. This is complete madness and guarantees that at least two films that would otherwise succeed are going to fail. On the other hand, there are nearly a dozen films that have previously opened and are expanding wide (Children of Men and Pan's Labyrinth, for example), or are being re-released to grab some last minute Oscar buzz, (The Queen and The Last King of Scotland, among others). This makes for an incredibly busy month, but not one that will likely produce many hits.

Two additional notes... Firstly, Letters from Iwo Jima is expanding throughout the month but likely won't go wide until February. Secondly, The Dead Girl has a planned expansion on the 19th, but after struggling in limited release since opening last weekend, this seems unlikely. More...

Girls are Road Warriors

December 28th, 2006

Dreamgirls fell 40% during the second weekend of its road tour, but it still earned an incredible $228,000 in three theaters for an average of $75,879. There were three other films to crack $10,000, all of them new releases. Leading this pack was Letters from Iwo Jima with just under $90,000 in 5 theaters for an average of $17,819. This is a better start than expected after the disappointing run by Flags of Our Fathers and if it earns a few more nominations, it could expand wide later on. Another Oscar hopeful, The Painted Veil, placed third with an average of $12,771. Finally there was Venus, which started its run with $35,000 in 3 theaters for an average of $11,868. More...

Movie Website Updates for December 16 - December 21, 2006

December 22nd, 2006

An abridged list with just the sites for movies opening this week, and maybe one or two others. Because it is such a short list, there's no real strong choice for Weekly Website Award. Rocky Balboa - Official Site comes the closest, but it doesn't quite get there. More...

Limited Releases - Deluge of Limited Releases

December 21st, 2006

We are again flooded with limited releases this week, most of which were obviously made with Oscar glory in mind. That said, only a few will earn any nominations and none here are likely to be the big winner on Oscar night, but there are still more than a enough to satisfy even the most dedicated cinemaphile. More...

Award Season - Babel and Departed are Golden
