Slevin was More Than Just Lucky

September 23rd, 2006

The rental chart was not overburdened by numerous new releases, however, the top two DVDs were both new to the charts. Leading the way was Lucky Number Slevin at $7.37 million, which is a good start given its theatrical run. More...

Sentinel Secures Top Spot on Home Market

September 9th, 2006

A ton of new releases to chart this week led by The Sentinel with $8.34 million. That's a reasonable start compared to its theatrical total, but weak given its production budget. More...

Poseidon Capsizes Competition on Home Market

September 2nd, 2006

It was a relatively slow week for new releases, but without much competition there were two newcomers finishing atop the standings. In first place was Poseidon as the disaster flick hopes to save its run on the home market; the $8.97 million it was able to bring in put it in first place comfortably, but it won't be enough to help it show a profit any time soon. More...

Home Market Numbers Take a Vacation

August 26th, 2006

This week's batch of DVDs managed to place a handful of new releases on the chart, including the top two films. R.V. opened in top spot with $9.08 million, a reasonable start given its domestic total and its target audience. More...

International Details - Worldwide Mission Ends in China

July 30th, 2006

A first place debut in China lifted Mission: Impossible 3 into sixth place overall with $5.74 million on 838 screens in 21 markets for a total of $239.82 million. In China it earned $2.8 million on 394 screens while in Japan it managed $2.50 million on 540 for a total of $29.92 million after three weeks of release. More...

International Details - Peninsula at Pinnacle

July 23rd, 2006

A South Korean film, Hanbando, a.k.a. The Korean Peninsula, topped its native market with a huge $6.14 million on 520 screens over the weekend and a total of $9.85 million overall. That was good enough for sixth place on the international charts. More...

International Details - Da Vinci Outpaces Fast and the Furious

July 16th, 2006

The Da Vinci Code slipped out of the top five with $3.85 million on 3037 screens in 55 markets for a total of $515.15 million. This is the 11th best international total ever, while its worldwide mark of $728.36 million places it 23rd on the all-time worldwide chart. More...

International Details - Da Vinci Sinks Poseidon

July 9th, 2006

Last minute updates in weekend numbers showed that it was The Da Vinci Code and not Poseidon grabbing the final spot in the top five. It was an exceedingly close race with the former film topping the latter by less than $3000 both with $5.68 million. The Da Vinci Code earned its box office on 4352 screens in 57 markets while Poseidon needed just 3584 in 48. On the other hand, their running tallies are worlds apart with The Da Vinci Code leading $507.68 million to $94.72 million. That film became just the 12th film to cross $500 million internationally and is less than $20 million from overtaking Finding Nemo for 10th place on the international charts. More...

International Details - Furious' Start not quite Fast Enough

June 25th, 2006

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift started its international run last weekend but missed the top five with $7.93 million on 810 screens in 8 markets. The film took first place in five markets, including the U.K. with $3.35 million on 415 screens, in Australia with $2.28 million on 221 screens, and New Zealand with $444,000 on 53 screens. This is inline with what the original opened with in those markets, but with shorter legs due to Sequelitis it won't have as high a final box office. More...

International Details - Treat for Trick 2

June 18th, 2006

Trick 2 opened in its native Japan finishing in a close second with $3.83 million on 282 screens. That was enough for sixth place on the overall charts and the best per screen average in the top 30. More...

International Details - Re-Volving Door

June 11th, 2006

The final weekend before the start of World Cup saw Volver become the latest best of the rest finishing sixth with $4.46 million on 863 screens in 5 markets for a total of $27.25 million. The film was again led by its performance in France where it grew for the second week in a row up 14% to $3.02 million on 404 screens for a total of $9.09 million while in Italy it grew by 28% to $1.44 million on 268 screens for a total of $5.61 million after three weeks. In both of those markets the film is on pace to top such worldwide blockbusters as Mission: Impossible 3, something nobody would have predicted before the start of the summer. Even more impressively, it is about a week away from France becoming the film's most lucrative market topping the $11.94 million it made in its native Spain. More...

Da Vinci is Da Vine

May 22nd, 2006

It was a good news, bad news weekend. Good news, The Da Vinci Code had one of the biggest opening weekends of all time and that helped the overall box office climb 63.8% from last weekend to $163 million. Bad news, every other film in the top five missed expectations, leaving the box office of flat with the same weekend last year. Not all of the smaller, independent releases have reported yet, but when they do, this weekend should see just a tiny increase, one that would round to 0.0%, but that's compared to microscopic decline of 0.001% it is showing right now. More...

Decoding Da Vinci

May 18th, 2006

One of the most hotly anticipated movies of the year opens this weekend, as does the latest digitally animated movie. Neither film looks likely to break any opening weekend box office records on its own, but we could have the biggest one-two opening punch ever, and with their respective target audiences, both movies should have strong legs. Whatever happens, one record will be broken this weekend, although it's a mark that no-one will be proud of achieving. More...

Ship Sinks while Secret Agents Swim

May 15th, 2006

It was a bad week for new releases with no newcomer able to beat expectations. Even though the holdovers held up well the overall weekend box office numbers sank. In total, theatrical releases earned $100 million, which was down 9.7% from last week and more importantly 2.7% from last year. This was the first year-to-year drop-off in eight weeks, although it was relatively small. In fact, had either Poseidon or Just My Luck matched expectations, the total box office would have seen a small growth. The small decline wasn't enough to put a dent in 2006's lead over 2005, which remains at 6%. More...

Sink or Swim for a Pair of Summer Flicks

May 11th, 2006

The second weekend of summer is looking soft this year with Mission: Impossible 3 getting off to a slower than expected start last weekend and buzz surrounding Poseidon being rather weak. The good news is that both those films should top last year's winner and that should lead to another week of year-to-year growth. More...

Mission: Implodes

May 8th, 2006

The unofficial start of summer was a disappointment, with the number one film missing expectations by nearly $20 million. However, the overall numbers were still very positive with the box office bringing in a total of $110 million. That's 7.8% higher than last weekend and 26.5% higher than the same weekend last year. Even better are the year-to-date numbers, which now stand 6% higher than last year. There is some bad news ahead as next week looks weaker and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and its $100 million weekend will hurt year-to-year comparisons the week after that. More...

Studios Eagerly Await Start of Summer

May 4th, 2006

This weekend is the unofficial start of the summer box office season with what should be the biggest movie of the year, at least so far. There's little doubt that Mission: Impossible 3 will be the biggest movie of the weekend, the only question is how well will it compare with other blockbusters, both this year and years past. More...

R.V. Sticks it to Competition

May 1st, 2006

The last weekend in April is generally not a good time to open a new movie since the first weekend in May is the unofficial start of the Summer Blockbuster season. Movies that open now generally only get one weekend of release before being crushed by the competition. Because of this, studios tend to dump films that have lowered expectations during this weekend. So there's little surprise that the total box office was down 6.6% from last week to $102 million. But more importantly, that represents a 12.6% increase from the same weekend last year despite the fact that last year's number one film earned nearly $5 million more than this year's number one film did. This surge had helped the year-to-date figure grow to $2.603 billion, up 4.7% over last year's pace. This is significant because it puts ticket sales on the rise as well as total box office. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 21 - April 28

April 28th, 2006

The first of the new Friday edition Weekly Website Review column is here, but not without a hitch. We had a bit of a power outage early in the day so I did what any modern man would do when faced with the prospects of going without the Internet for an undetermined amount of time, I took a nap. Fortunately, I was mostly done before the power went out so there was no real affect on this week's list, but I am starting to this that this column is cursed. As for the list, its pretty average with the best of the bunch being A Scanner Darkly - Official Site. More...

Getting a Head Start on Vacation

April 27th, 2006

It's a busy week for wide releases with four such films coming out, although none of them look like breakout hits. In fact, only one of the films is opening in significantly more than 2,000 theatres. Continuing the overriding trend of the year, the film that is earning the worst reviews of the weekend should also top the charts. More...

2006 Preview: April

April 1st, 2006

March wasn't as strong as expected and April doesn't seem to have what it takes to turn things around. IMDb has a poll they run every month on what film you are looking forward to the most. This time the number one film is Silent Hill was in first with 16.5% of the vote. Number two went to 'Other' at 13.0% of the vote. This is a really, really bad sign. With no advanced buzz, many films will have a hard time attracting an audience, which not only means less people are seeing the movies, but also less people are seeing the trailers for the big summer releases, which means less buzz about the summer releases... On the other hand, there are several limited releases that look promising including Friends with Money, Hard Candy, The Notorious Bettie Page, and Kinky Boots. Unfortunately, all but the first are being released on April 14th. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 24 - March 30

March 30th, 2006

Another week with less sites than I would have liked. (On a side note, it seems every time something weird happens it happens on a Thursday. This time its slight internet connection problems / memory leak. I think. Whatever it is, it's causing my computer to act really slowly.) This shorter list doesn't mean there isn't an award-worthy site and the best of the best is Over the Hedge - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 3 - March 9

March 9th, 2006

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. This week's winner was one of last week's best sites, She's the Man - Official Site, which added a lot of content this week including some old stuff that was off site for previous weeks. More...

Movie Website Updates for December 23 - December 29

December 29th, 2005

This week's list of movie site is abridged and only contains the two films that are opening this week plus more than a dozen site that have never appeared on this list before. However, it was one of the two new openings, Match Point - Official Site, that took the weekly website award. 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.
