DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 9th, 2010

February 9th, 2010

Not a particularly great week for DVD or Blu-ray releases. The biggest movie to hit the home market is Couples Retreat, but it was a terrible movie and should be avoided at all costs. The best film coming out this week is A Serious Man and while the DVD is worth picking up, the Blu-ray is the better deal. However, the Pick of the Week goes to The Guild: Season Three, which is one of the funniest things on the Web. More...

Featured Blu-ray: Serious Moonlight

Second place went to Up in the Air with an average of $78,763 in 15 theaters. That is an impressive start and with the film already proving itself to be an Awards Season player, its future is indeed bright. Broken Embraces continues to perform in limited release and earned an average of $44,285 in two theaters, but it better expand fast before momentum is lost. Mystery Team was a surprise entry in the $10,000 club earning a reported $11,259 in one theater. More...

December 4th, 2009
