DVD and Blu-ray Releases for December 29th, 2009

December 28th, 2009

The Tuesday after Christmas might seem a strange week to release a DVD or Blu-ray because it's too late to be a Christmas gift. On the other hand, it's perfect for Boxing Week sales. Overall we have a very short list this week, but there are still a few releases of note, including 9, which is bit expensive on Blu-ray, but still Pick of the Week material. Meanwhile, Paranormal Activity is also a Pick of the Week contender, but the screener is late, so I can't say for sure. I blame the Christmas shipping rush for the delay in getting here.

Nine Helps '09 Strive to Become Number One

August 18th, 2009

Nine was the lucky number over the weekend as District 9 topped the charts with better than expected results. Also, nine of the ten film talked about in Thursday's column met or exceeded expectations. This helped the box office bring in $142 million overall, which was only 3% lower than last weekend. More importantly, it was 14% higher than the same weekend last year, which was much better than expected. Year-to-date, 2009 has earned $6.86 billion in total revenue, which is 6.6% higher than last year's pace. More...

G.I. Joe Fires Up the Box Office

August 11th, 2009

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra topped expectations and that helped 2009 finally snap its month-long slump at the box office. Overall the industry brought in $146 million, which was 17% higher than last weekend, and more importantly, 22% higher than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date, 2009 has brought in $6.64 billion, which is 6.6% higher than 2008's pace; however, while that's impressive, it is seriously off its highs for the year and 2009 will need to work to make sure ticket sales don't fall behind last year's pace.

Weekend Estimates: G.I. Joe Enlivens Late Summer Box Office

August 9th, 2009

While its hefty price tag means it's got a long way to go before it turns a profit, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra did enjoy a strong opening weekend at the US and international box office, according to Paramount's numbers, released on Sunday. The action flick stormed to $56.2 million in the US, the 4th biggest August weekend ever (see complete list) and picked up an estimated $44 million internationally for a $100 million worldwide opening. After a lukewarm reception from critics, Paramount reports a solid response from audiences, which bodes well for healthy numbers for a few weeks. More...

Go Joe!

August 7th, 2009

August begins with the movie industry hoping that summer will last at least one more week. There is some hope that we will have a $60 or $70 million opener this weekend, but even if G.I.Joe earns just half of that, it will be a better start than the top film from last year and hopefully that means 2009 will finally end its recent slump.

2009 Preview: August

August 1st, 2009

July was a mixed month with several of the big hits failing to live up to great expectations, while still being big hits. There were no surprise hits, but no outright bombs either. No outright bombs is what the industry is hoping for August, but that seems less likely. We could see a monster hit opening on the first week, but that potential hit, G.I.Joe, could also be a monster bomb. There is at least one movie opening each week that I'm personally interested in, although for the most part it is not the widest release of the week that piques my interest. More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
