DVD Rentals - Watching Watchmen and Coraline and the Rest of the New Releases

August 5th, 2009

New releases were not as plentiful on the rental chart as they were on the sales chart, mainly due to the fact that TV on DVD dominated the lower half of sales. The top two films were the same with Watchmen opening in first place with roughly 50% more rentals than Coraline had. More...

DVD Sales - New Releases Haunt Sales Chart

July 30th, 2009

There were not a lot of new releases to chart this week, and only one of them made it into the top five. However, that one film was A Haunting in Connecticut, which earned first place earning $8.76 million on 439,000 units sold. More...

DVD Rentals - Nothing Knew On top of the Rental Chart

July 30th, 2009

Firstly, that pun in the headline is so bad I caused my physical pain when I wrote it. But as it implies, none of the new releases were able to topple Knowing leaving the DVD in top spot on the rental chart. More...

DVD Sales - Well Known

July 23rd, 2009

Sales picked up this week with the release of Knowing and a few other new releases that topped the sales chart this week. Knowing led the way with respectable sales of 773,000 units and $12.51 million in consumer spending at retail. More...

DVD Rentals - Getting to Know Knowing

July 23rd, 2009

The same three new releases that topped the sales chart this week also topped the rental charts, and they finished in the same order. Knowing opened in first place with more than Push and The Unborn made combined. More...

DVD Releases for July 7th, 2009

July 6th, 2009

This is a slow week. Even compared to the recent slow weeks we've encountered, this is a slow week. There are a few first run releases on this week's list, but the best of them earned weak reviews and was only a mid-level hit at the box office. The best release overall is Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Volume 15, but it is a bit of a niche market release, and I'm hesitant to award it the DVD Pick of the Week. More...

International Details - Duplicity Doubles

April 5th, 2009

Duplicity doubled its international haul over the weekend landing in sixth place with $6.47 million on 1811 screens in 20 markets for a total of $12.21 million. The film opened in fourth place in France with $2.01 million on 380 screens, while it managed fourth in Russia as well, but with a much weaker $873,000 on 265 screens. It did hold on better than most in the U.K. down just 31% to $775,000 on 355 screens over the weekend for a total of $2.68 million after two. More...

International Details - Confessions of the International Box Office

March 1st, 2009

Confessions Of A Shopaholic expanded this past weekend jumping into sixth place with $6.13 million on 1365 screens in 10 markets for a total of $10.05 million. This includes a second place, $2.80 million opening on 424 screens over the weekend in the U.K., for a total of $4.14 million there. The film also held well in Russia down just 42% with $1.04 million on 415 screens over the weekend for a total of $3.41 million after two. More...

Horror Fans Love Valentine's Day

February 17th, 2009

Another record breaking weekend! President's Day long weekend smashed the previous record with a total of $188 million over three days and $220 million over four. To put this into perspective, the previous record was set in 2007 when the box office pulled in $187 million in four days. That's right, this year we earned more in three days than the previous record was over four. It goes without saying that there were huge increases over last weekend (up 22%) and over the same weekend last year (up 37% over three days and 33% over four). Year to date, 2009 has pulled in $1.47 billion, 22% ahead of last year's $1.20 billion pace. More...

Moviegoers are Into Not That Into You

February 9th, 2009

2009 returned to its winning ways after a tiny 1% drop-off last week. Not only did the number one film beat expectations, but five of the six films on Thursday's column beat expectations. This led to a 22% jump at the box office to $155 million, which is 38% more than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date, 2009 has now pulled in $1.22 billion vs. $1.02 billion for the same time last year, which is an outstanding 19.6% increase. More...

Weekend Estimates: Another Good Weekend at the Movies

February 8th, 2009

Once more, moviegoers defied predictions and visited movie theaters in big numbers this weekend. He's Just Not That Into You overcame mediocre reviews to top the weekend with an impressive $27.465 million, according to Warner Bros. Sunday estimate. Taken fell only 18% from its opening to score $20.3 million. Coraline also had a very strong debut with $16.3 million and clearly managed to find its audience in spite of being a challenge to market. More...

Movie Website Reviews for the Weekend of February 6th, 2009

February 8th, 2009

There was an equal mix of wide and limited releases on this week's list, but as usual, it is the wide releases that dominate the top end of the websites for this week. But it was the smallest wide release for the week, Coraline, that had the best Official Site, and it is this site that wins the Weekly Website Award. More...

Will Moviegoers be into New Releases?

February 6th, 2009

There's a quartet of new wide releases coming out this week, with two coming out at saturation level theater counts, and two coming out that are barely opening truly wide. Additionally, only one of the wide releases is earning overall positive reviews, and most analysts seem to think that won't be enough to save it at the box office. Overall the new releases seem stronger than last year, as are the holdovers, which should help 2009 to expand on its lead, while overcoming last weekend's momentary dip at the box office. More...

2009 Preview: February

February 1st, 2009

2009 got off to a great start and February hopes to continue that run, but I don't think that's likely. First of all, none of the releases coming out this month look like they have what it takes to reach $100 million. Or even $80 million. This means the best film of this month will likely be lower than the biggest-earning film of last month and the biggest earner of this month last year. Hopefully there will be fewer outright misses and more mid-level hits, which will help 2009 keep pace with 2008. More...

Contest - Push It!

January 30th, 2009

Ah, push it - push it good
Ah, push it - push it real good

Now that everyone has Salt 'n' Peppa stuck in their heads, I can move on. There are a number of wide releases this week, including two that are coming out at saturation level. However, instead we are using one of the smaller releases, Push as this week's target film for two reasons. One, so I could mention that DJ Spinderella was always my favorite member of the band. And two, we are giving away plush toys from Space Buddies as prizes, and the Push / Plush went well together. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Push. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win Rosebud and Buddha plush toys from Space Buddies, which will be released on DVD and Blu-ray this week, as well as a large note pads from the movie. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a Spudnick plush toy from Space Buddies, as well as a small note pad from the movie. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! 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.
