DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 10th, 2012

January 9th, 2012

It's a pretty good week on the home market, for this time of year, with a number of releases that are worth checking out. This includes big budget releases, like Moneyball on Blu-ray Combo Pack, as well as TV on DVD releases like Doctor Who: Story 71: Invasion of the Dinosaurs and Story 83: The Android Invasion, as well as smaller releases like Higher Ground on Blu-ray Combo Pack. Unfortunately, it's not a particularly deep week for releases, and it isn't long before we start getting to DVDs and Blu-rays that would be ignored during a typically busy week. Not only that, but I'm still waiting for screeners for a number of bigger releases. One of these, Boardwalk Empire: Season One on Blu-ray, is the most likely candidate for Pick of the Week. More...

Featured DVD Review: Saving Private Perez

January 6th, 2012

Saving Private Perez is a Mexican film that opened in more theaters than most limited releases debut it. It did respectable business on the per theater chart during its opening weekend, but collapsed quite quickly after that. This suggests it is a niche market film. But now that it is coming out on the home market, will it find a wider audience? Or is the crossover appeal too limited? More...

Per Theater Chart: Laughing at the Competition

September 14th, 2011

There was only one film to reach the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart, but it did it with style. Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain earned just under $2 million in 98 theaters for an average of $19,474. I wasn't expecting it to earn $2 million in total. More...

Per Theater Chart: Detective Dee on the Case

September 7th, 2011

The per theater chart is nearly empty and only Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame topping $10,000 over the three-day portion of the weekend. It's average from Friday through Sunday was $17,533 in three theaters. Bodyguard earned an average of $9,813 in 88 theaters over the three-day portion of the weekend, but crossed over the $10,000 mark if you include Monday. It was even more impressive if you take into account its Wednesday and Thursday numbers. More...

Labor Day Delivers Big Limited Releases

September 2nd, 2011

The selection of limited releases is not great with only one, Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. On the other hand, there are three films opening in more than 100 theaters, none of which are likely to become hits. It could be a really soft weekend on the per theater chart. Fortunately, Awards Season is not too far away. More...
