DVD Releases for October 18, 2005

October 17th, 2005

Every week, films get a second chance at success on the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success.

Charlie Crashes the Per Theater Charts

July 19th, 2005

Wide releases finished first and second on the Per Theater Charts this weekend, with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory leading with $14,901 average in 3,770 theaters. The Wedding Crashers didn't open in nearly as many theaters but its $11,590 average was impressive nonetheless. While March of the Penguins did yield the crown on the Per Theater Charts to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it is still the big story on this week's chart. The Documentary more than doubled its theater count, again, but its average dropped just 28% to $11,478. More...

Sith Still has Stranglehold on Per Theater Charts

The only limited release to crack the $10,000 club was Saving Face with $75,000 in 6 theaters for a $12,517 average. Lastly, we have Madagascar with $11,432. More...
