DVD Releases for March 13, 2007

March 12th, 2007

Not much worth talking about this week. However, that's because one of the biggest hits of last year is coming out, and studios don't want to go head-to-head with such a behemoth. The behemoth in question is Casino Royale - Buy from Amazon. But while this release is keeping the overall traffic a bit light, there's more than one DVD that's worth picking up, including the aforementioned Bond blockbuster. But the best of the best is Without a Trace - The Complete Second Season - Buy from Amazon. And if you want to see season 3 come out on DVD anytime soon, buy this DVD A.S.A.P. More...

Babel Broke the Bank

October 31st, 2006

It was a busy week on the per theater charts with five films topping $10,000 and another coming awfully close. Leading the way was Oscar bait, Babel with nearly $400,000 in 7 theaters for an average of $55,622, which was four times the next highest earner. That film, The Queen, earned nearly $2 million in 152 for an average of $12,560 during its fifth week of release. Shut Up and Sing was in a virtual tie for second place with an average of $12,526 in its four theaters, while The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D wasn't that far behind with $11,409. The final film to top $10,000 was the overall box office leader, Saw III, which managed an average of $10,613 in its 3,167 theaters. More...

Queen's Royal Reign Continues

October 10th, 2006

For the second weekend in a row, The Queen top the per theatre charts with an average of $36,543, down just over 10%. This is even more impressive since the movie saw its theatre count climb from 3 to 11. Little Children came in next after earning nearly $100,000 in 5 theatres for an average of $19,591 while Shortbus earned just over $100,000 in 6 theatres for an average of $17,985. The former film has a much better shot at earning some mainstream success as the latter is just too much for the average moviegoer. More...

Movie Website Updates for September 30 - October 6, 2006

October 7th, 2006

Good week for websites, but most were smaller updates or new sites with just a few features. Two sites, Happy Feet - Official Site and The Prestige - Official Site, stood out above the crowd, but both will need a few more update to take home the Weekly Website Award. More...

Limited Releases - Looking for a Little Bit of Love (and a lot of Cash)

October 6th, 2006

A dozen films on this list and while there are few Oscar contenders, it could be the Canadian film, Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, that has the best long-term potential. More...
