DVD Rentals - Hulk Brings in the Green

November 4th, 2008

Most of the new releases that charted on this week's sales chart also charted on this week's rental chart, and they even shared the same new number one film, The Incredible Hulk. More...

DVD Sales - Indiana Jones and the Millions of Sales

October 28th, 2008

There were more than half-a-dozen new releases to reach the top 30 on this week's sales chart, including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. That film topped the charts with 3.03 million units sold for sales of $70.57 million. However, the Franchise Collection placed sixth with 177,000 units sold and $10.85 million in sales. Add in the individual releases and the total sales were more than $80 million from 3.3 million units sold. More...

DVD Rentals - Crystal is Golden

October 28th, 2008

There were fewer new releases that were able to reach the top 30 on the rental chart this week, but the same film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was able to come out on top. More...

DVD Releases for October 14, 2008 - Part II

October 15th, 2008

The DVD Release Report finally comes out this week after a couple of delays. At least it is worth the wait as one of the most anticipated films of the year, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, comes out on both Two-Disc Collector's Edition and Blu-ray. This release is clearly the DVD Pick of the Week, either format, while there are so many other releases that the list had to split into two. You can find the first part here. More...

Cloverfield Shoots for the Stars (Wars)

January 22nd, 2008

Records fell this week as Cloverfield became the biggest film ever to debut on Martin Luther King long weekend, as well as setting a few other records (including topping Star Wars long standing January opening record). This helped the weekend bring in $155 million over three days, which was 19% more than last weekend. It was also 56% more than the same weekend last year. However, since Martin Luther King long weekend was a week earlier that isn't a fair comparison. Compared to last year's Martin Luther King long weekend, 2008 was ahead by 21% over three days and 19% over four. More...

Bucket Full of Cash

January 15th, 2008

It's the second weekend of January and we still haven't seen a January release top the charts. This time the biggest hit was a wide expansion from December, which not only finished first, but also helped the overall box office reach $130 million. This is about 7% lower than last weekend, but roughly 1% more than the same weekend last year, and this weekend last year was Martin Luther King Weekend, which helped boost the numbers. More...

Weekend Estimates: Bucket List Just Beats First Sunday

January 13th, 2008

If this was an election and we were CNN, we'd probably still be calling this weekend's box office race "too close to call". With weekend estimates in, The Bucket List heads the list with an estimated $19.54 million. That's just half a million or so ahead of First Sunday with $19 million, and final numbers could yet see the two positions reversed. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of January 11, 2008

January 12th, 2008

We have twice as many sites as last week, but the real improvement is with the quality at the top. The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movies - Official Site - has an excellent mix of regular features, extras, and style and is the clear winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Drop in the Bucket

January 10th, 2008

This week, we have three new wide release and there are also a couple of expansions. Add in several strong holdovers, and there could be quite a logjam on the top of the charts. Not every new release / wide expansion will take part in this bounty, with In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, which could turn out to be the worst movie of the year, likely to miss out. More...

2008 Preview: January

January 1st, 2008

It's the beginning of a new month, and a new year. This new beginning brings with it a sense of hope and exhilaration for many people, but this does not extend into the movie world. January is dominated by films from last year. Not only are holdovers going to overwhelm new releases at the box office for the next couple weeks, but with the award season heating up, most buzz is about who will win what. In fact, only Cloverfield seems to be able to rise above the award season buzz, but this is not a sure sign that the film will survive at the box office. More...
