DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 12th, 2012

It's another strong week at the home market, at least for this time of year. Usually at this time of year we are dealing with January and February releases, which tend to be rather bad and are rarely big hits at the box office. However, we have the last of the winter blockbusters coming out this Tuesday. The Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Blu-ray Combo Pack will be the best selling release of the week, and good enough to buy, but it is not Pick of the Week material. There were a couple others that came close, like Too Big to Fail on DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack and In Darkness on DVD or Blu-ray. In the end, I went with Shallow Grave's Criterion Collection Blu-ray as the pick of the week, although Harold and Maude's Criterion Collection Blu-ray and Gold Rush's Criterion Collection Blu-ray are really close behind. More...

2007 - Holiday Gift Guide - Part I

It's the first of December. (At least it was when I was writing this intro the first time. I was only going to do a dozen or so releases, but the list ballooned well out of control.) This week kicks off our second annual Holiday Gift Guide with a look at some high definition releases, because nothing says holidays like a format war. More...

DVD Rentals - Shrek Even Stronger on Rental Charts

There were only four new releases to chart this week on the DVD rental chart, including Shrek the Third, which opened in top spot with $11.01 million in rentals. More...

DVD Sales - Shrek Stomps Competition

Shrek the Third was the second digitally animated film to debut on top of the sales chart in two weeks. Preliminary numbers have the DVD selling 4.10 million units for $62.42 million in sales. The Thanksgiving holiday delayed full numbers and this could change when final updates are in, although they won't change by enough to drop it out of first place. More...

DVD Rentals - Why Buy Chuck and Larry When You can Rent It?

There were just four new releases to chart on this week's rental charts, but three of them placed in the top five. This includes the new number one renter, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, which pulled in $9.26 million in rentals. More...

DVD Sales - Ratatouille Rules the Sales Chart

Ratatouille led a large group of new releases on this week's sales chart selling a massive 3.86 million units for first week sales of $57.82 million. More...

Spiderman 3 world wide gross


DVD Rentals - Spidey Finds Friendly Reception on the Rental Chart

As it was on the sales chart, so it was on the rental chart: there were plenty of new releases, but Spider-man 3 came away on top with $9.70 million in rentals. More...

DVD Sales - Spidey\'s DVD Sales not that Super

It was a busy week for new releases but, as expected, Spider-man 3 topped the sales chart with 2.40 million units sold for $42.44 million in sales. This is substantially lower than The Transformers' first week sales, despite Spider-man 3 being the highest grossing film of the year. On the other hand, the film sold 130,000 Blu-Ray discs, which may or may not be a record for high definition releases. There are some... confusion with the numbers, so much so that there are accusations of impropriety, intentional or otherwise. More...

DVD Releases for October 30, 2007 - Part I

Another massive week for releases with dozens of releases mentioned below (and in the second part). Of these numerous releases, there were several that were in contention for the DVD Pick of the Week, but I was able to narrow the selection down to just two: Spider-Man 3 - Blu-Ray Edition and Looney Tunes - Golden Collection - Volume Five. Blu-Ray finally gets on the board and scores a DVD Pick of the Week, but it won't be the last. In fact, I have a funny feeling the format will score its second award. More...

DVD Releases for October 30, 2007 - Part II

Another massive week for releases with dozens of releases mentioned below (and in the first part). Of these numerous releases, there were several that were in contention for the DVD Pick of the Week, but I was able to narrow the selection down to just two: Spider-Man 3 - Blu-Ray Edition and Looney Tunes - Golden Collection - Volume Five. Blu-Ray finally gets on the board and scores a DVD Pick of the Week, but it won't be the last. In fact, I have a funny feeling the format will score its second award soon. More...

DVD Sales - Knocked Up Knocks Out Next Best Seller

New releases were not plentiful on the sales chart this week, but they did take the first two places. Leading the way was Knocked Up, which sold 2.29 million DVDs for first week sales of $43.87 million. (The studio has reported that it sold 3.5 million units, but this is likely the number of units shipped, not the number sold during its opening week.) More...

IMAX - Potter Profits on Big Big Screen

There were even more records falling this weekend as Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix broke several IMAX records during its opening. This includes the largest number of screens (91 domestically and 35 internationally); biggest Wednesday ($1.9 million); the largest 5-day domestic total ($7.4 million); largest domestic per screen average ($80,500); and the largest worldwide opening ($9.4 million). And because of massive pre-sales and sold out showings, the film should show stronger legs on IMAX screens that it will as a whole. More...

International Details - Pirates Still Have Some Fight Left in Them

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End remained in sixth place with $8.94 million on 5442 screens in 101 markets for a total of $624.93 million. Internationally the film is in fifth place all-time and should top Dead Man's Chest shortly. Worldwide, it is also in fifth place but Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone's $974.56 million seems safe. As for At World's End's individual markets, the U.K. is still ahead of Japan $80.06 million to $77.58 million. However, Japan is catching up $2.28 million on 674 screens compared to just $738,000 on 357 in the U.K. At this pace Japan will need just two weeks to become the film's biggest draw. More...

International Details - Pirates Ship Starts to Sink

Some very interesting news on the international front this weekend regarding Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. First of all, it fell out of the top five; however, it was still able to pull in more than $10 million over the weekend. Not too long ago it was a chore to find a dozen films that cracked $1 million, while this past weekend we had 6 that earned $10 million or more. Over the weekend the film added $14.02 million on 5775 screens in 104 markets for a total of $608.89 million internationally. It is the sixth film to cross $600 million internationally and is now in fifth place on that chart. Worldwide the film has $906.89 million making it the ninth highest grosser of all time. The U.K. is still the film's best market at $78.51 million compared to second pace Japan where it has made $74.02 million. However, that gap continues to narrow with the film making $3.23 million on 691 screens in the latter and $1.37 million on 401 screens in the former. More...

International Details - Black Mark at the Box Office

There was a troubling lack of final results this week and this results in a few studio estimates with some of the numbers. However, it appears that Black House was able to place fourth on the international charts after winning the box office race in South Korea The film was able to top its native market with $2.71 million on 325 screens over the weekend and $3.35 million in total. More...

International Details - Spidey Swings into the Sunset

Spider-Man 3 fell out of the top five for the first time during its run, but since it has already hit $500 million internationally and is closing in on $900 million worldwide, this is hardly a reason to panic. Over the weekend the film added $3.02 million on 3914 screens in 65 markets for a total of $543.87 million, putting it in 11th place all time, just behind Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings. Worldwide the film had $873.88 million at the end of the weekend, which means it also places 11th on that all-time chart, but will top Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets before long. More...

International Top Five - Pirates Lucky Streak Continues

Weaker than expected competition helped Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End maintain its stranglehold on first place, despite losing more than 50% at the box office. Over the weekend the film added $50.70 million on 12,591 screens in 103 markets for a total of $495.16 million meaning it should crack $500 million internationally by this time this column in published while $600 million is still the target number. However, due to weaker than expected domestic numbers $1 billion worldwide is out of reach. The film hit $50 million in Japan over the weekend after earning $7.68 million on 842 screens, down just 20%. That was the film's biggest single market over the weekend, but its total there of $50.41 million is second place to the U.K.'s $66.22 million running tally. However, in that market the film is fading fast and Japan could eventually become At World's End's most lucrative market. More...

International Top Five - Pirates Catching Up

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End lost more than 50% of its international opening this past weekend, but it was still the clear winner with an outstanding $103.22 million on 17,500 screens in 103 markets. It also became the fastest film to reach $400 million internationally with $406.41 million after the weekend and that places it 25th on that particular chart. Worldwide the film had $623.96 million, which put it in 30th place just behind The Incredibles (it overtook that film during the week). At this pace, the film should have no difficulty catching Spider-Man 3 and become the biggest international box office hit this year. It should manage to become the worldwide leader shortly afterward. More...

Pirates Hit Hard but not Knocked Out

The post-holiday weekend saw a massive collapse at the box office, with receipts down 34% to $135 million. However, that collapse was entirely predictable. On the other hand, the film market fell below the same weekend last year, which is a lot more troublesome. Granted, the drop-off is less than one percent, and year-to-date 2007 is still showing strong growth, but it is concerning nonetheless. More...

International Details - Spidey Sinks to Second but Still Reaches Milestones

Spider-Man 3 earned a comfortable second place earning almost as much as the rest of the films on this list with $21.07 million on 10,365 screens in 76 markets for a total of $501.00 million. It is only the 14th film to reach that milestone while it became the 16th film to top $800 million worldwide and has already climbed into 14th place overall. The U.K. regained the lead as the best market for the film adding $2.58 million on 460 screens for a total of $61.09 million. Japan took in $2.36 million on 630 screens while France made $2.31 million on 866 screens as the only other two markets to top $2 million over the weekend and the film now has $47.79 million and $48.55 million respectively. There were a quartet of led by Brazil, ($1.29 million for the weekend and $21.55 million in total); Spain, ($1.29 million / $22.49 million); Mexico, ($1.22 million / $32.90 million); and Germany, ($1.01 million / $27.16 million). More...

Newcomers Try to Knock Pirates out of Top Spot

The post holiday weekend sees three new releases, but for the first time in three weeks, there's no massive blockbuster on the horizon and there's little chance we will have a new number one at the box office. More...

International Top One - Pirates Score Record Plunder in International Seas

The second worldwide release of the summer occurred over the weekend when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End debuted in more than a hundred markets. Needless to say, records were broken. More...

Can a $150 million Opening Weekend Really be a Disappointment?

The Memorial Weekend was one of the biggest weekends of all time, pulling in a combined $193 million. Yet, for many, it will be looked at as a disappointment. In fact, the whole month of May has been like that as, while it will go down as one of the most lucrative months of all time, it will still be remembered by some for not reaching expectations. More...

Weekend Estimates: Pirates Plunder Memorial Day Record

As expected, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End has taken the Memorial Day weekend record with an estimated Friday-Saturday-Sunday haul of $112,547,000, according to Buena Vista's Sunday estimate. That gives the movie a four day total of $126,547,000, including Thursday previews. While somewhat behind the early pace of Spider-Man 3, the long weekend and official start of the Summer vacation season will help Pirates catch up in the coming days, and we look set for a box office battle royale. More...

Pirates set for a Memorable Memorial Day

For the third time in four weeks there will be another $100 million opening. It's strange, for four years after Spider-Man set the record, no film matched its record-setting debut. In fact, no film really came that close. However, in the past 12 months, three films have topped that mark and another film will do the same this weekend. More...

International Top Five - Spider-Man remains Strong as Shrek debuts in Second

Spider-Man 3 earned its third, and likely last, first place finish on the international charts scoring $51.07 million on 13,491 screens in 73 markets. Internationally the film has amassed a total of $466.71 million, which places it 17th on the all-time chart while worldwide the film had pulled in $749.09 million and is in 23rd place there. Moving onto individual markets, France was the best bet over the weekend adding $6.5 million at 973, ahead of the U.K.'s $5.3 million on 508 screens, (although the U.K. still leads on the cumulative totals $57.2 million to $46.4 million). More...

Shrek Sets Records for Animated Movie

There was another massive opening over the weekend, something we'll have to get used to this summer, but not all reports are glowing. The second $100 million opening of the month helped push the overall box office up, way up, to $182 million, which is 70% higher than last weekend. However impressive these weekly fluctuations may seem, it is the year-to-year increase of 11% that is more important. The other number of note is 15%, which is how much higher this summer is over the record-setting pace of 2004. That summer not only gave us Shrek 2, but also Spider-Man 2 and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Those three movies combined for more than $1 billion, a mark this summer's top three films should be able to top. More...

Shrek Sets His Sights on Spidey

So far May has been softer than expected. Sure, Spider-man 3 opened with a record breaking weekend, but since then it has started tracking below expectations. Meanwhile, every other film has missed their modest expectations, some by large margins. This weekend things should get back on track with one of the most anticipated films of the year debuting tomorrow, but even here there are some warning signs. More...

International Top Five - Spidey Solid on International Scene

Spider-Man 3's performance at the international box office at the weekend was even more dominant than its domestic performance. Over the weekend, the film added $84.27 million on 13,799 screens in 73 markets for a total of $385.43 million, which puts it on pace to become the biggest hit of the franchise by this weekend. Worldwide, the film hit $625.66 million at the end of the weekend, and should also top the previous releases before long. On the all-time charts, the film is now in 24th place and should catch the 23rd place film (Spider-Man 2), and the 22nd place film ( Spider-Man), before long while it could grab a temporary spot in the top ten. Worldwide, it currently ranks 28th with eyes on Attack of the Clones. More...

Brand Rules the Per Theater Chart

Brand Upon the Brain! was the top dog on the per theater chart this week, scoring an impressive $46,412 in its one theater over the weekend and $63,837 since Wednesday. In most cases this would be clear evidence that the film was destined for mainstream success. However, given the nature of the movie, it should have a successful tour of art house theaters in major cities, but it will never play in multiplexes. The second place film was Brooklyn Rules with $41,811 an exclusive engagement ahead of this Friday's opening. Paris, je t'aime remained in third place while its average rose to $20,247. The overall number one film, Spider-man 3, earned an average of $13,680, which was more than the four new wide releases combined. Finally, Waitress just maintained a $10,000 average, earning an average of $10,108 in 65 theaters. There is little doubt the film will earn some measure of mainstream success at this point. More...

Records Fall, Falling Records Fall

As expected, no new release came close to challenging Spider-man 3 for top spot. In fact, the four newcomers were even weaker than expected. However, while this led to a 44% drop-off from last weekend, the overall box office take of $106 million was still more than 6% higher than the same weekend last year and that's the more important figure. Next weekend there should be a big bounce as Shrek the Third should earn significantly more than that all by itself. More...

Will Spidey Sink or Swing?

This is the only soft weekend in the month of May with new releases forced to fight for the scraps of last weekend's record breaker, which explains why we have four such films trying to split already weak box office prospects. However, none of these new releases has any real shot at unseating Spider-man 3, even though that film is expected to sink pretty far at the box office. More...

International Top One - Spider-Man Spins a Worldwide Web

Spider-Man 3's performance on the international scene was truly amazing as it outpaced almost all expectations and beat earlier weekend estimates. The film earned $176.84 million overall on 16,711 screens in 75 markets and since its opening last Tuesday the film has already made $230.89 million. This means the film surpassed 300 in less than one week, to become the biggest international hit of the year, and should do the same on the worldwide chart by the weekend. More...

Spidey Climbs to the Top of the Per Theater Chart

Spider-man 3 not set records on the overall charts, but it also earned the highest-ever per theater average for a movie playing in wide release. Its average of $35,540 beats the record set by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest when it set the previous all-time high weekend mark in July last year. Spider-Man wasn't the only film to reach the $10,000 club though, as three new limited releases also managed that feat, led by Waitress, which made $92,000 over the weekend (and $112,000 in total), for an average of $23,009 in its four theaters. This is enough to suggest the film should be able to earn at least some measure of mainstream success. Paris, Je T'Aime was close behind with an average of $19,621 in its two theaters, while Away From Her earned an average of $13,317 in four. More...

IMAX - Spidey\'s Record Breaking Debut was Big, Really Big

Spider-Man 3 broke several IMAX records over the weekend, starting with biggest single day at $2.2 million. The film also has the biggest domestic weekend at $4.8 million and the biggest worldwide weekend at $6.3 million. More...

Weekend Finals: Spider-Man Nets Record $151,116,516 Opening

Spider-Man 3 matched the most optimistic predictions with a $151.1 million opening, smashing all previous opening weekend records. After setting an all-time record for a single day on Friday (an estimated $59.8 million), the movie barely let up its pace over the weekend. Saturday's $51.3 million is a new record for the day of the week, and Sunday's $39.9 million is another record. Perhaps most remarkably, given its huge distribution, the movie also set a record for the highest per theater average for a movie playing in over 3,000 theaters. This new mark, $35,540, is about on par with the inflation-adjusted figure for the first movie in the franchise, which earned $31,679 per theater when it was setting records back in 2002. In box office terms, Spider-Man is king again. More...

Spider-Man Sinks Pirates in Opening Salvo of the Summer Battle

Now that's what the Summer is all about. With Spider-man 3, the blockbuster season got off to a record-breaking start and that lifted the overall box office to amazing heights. Last weekend was one of the worst weekends in a long time, but Spider-man 3 alone earned nearly twice as much as the previous week's total box office and, adding in the holdovers, the 3-day take of $190 million was 144% more than last weekend, and already ranks as the fourth-biggest single weekend in history with reports for some movies still to come in (see the full list). More importantly, it is 72% more than the same weekend last year. Granted, last Summer got off to a slow start, but this is still a huge year-to-year increase and a very good omen for the season as a whole. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 29 - May 5, 2007

Among the more than two-dozen films on this week's list, there were a few that came very close to winning the Weekly Website Award. Of the three, Spider-Man 3 - Official Site was probably the closest to winning, but in the end was brought down by high expectations. More...

Weekend Estimates - Spider-Man Nets Record $148 Million Opening

Spider-Man 3 matched the most optimistic predictions by opening with a phenomenal $148 million, according to Sony's estimate released on Sunday. After setting an all-time record for a single day on Friday (an estimated $59.3 million), the movie barely let up its pace over the weekend. Saturday's $51 million was also a record for the day of the week, and Sunday's projected $37.7 million will be another record. Perhaps most remarkably, given its huge distribution, the movie also set a record for the highest per theater average for a movie playing in over 3,000 theaters. This new mark, $34,807, is about on par with the inflation-adjusted figure for the first movie in the franchise, which earned $31,679 per theater when it was setting records back in 2002. In box office terms, Spider-Man is king again. More...

Spider-Man Opens With $59 Million Day

Spider-Man 3 swung straight into the record books on Friday, opening with an estimated $59 million, the biggest single day in box office history (see the full list). The new record sets Spidey up for a record-breaking weekend in the region of $140 million, although it will have to maintain its momentum to guarantee breaking the $135.6 million record held by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (see the full list). More...

Spidey Has His Eye on Jack Sparrow

With the start of the summer blockbuster season, all eyes are on Spider-man 3. But the real question isn't whether Spider-man 3 will win the box office race, there's very little doubt that it will. No, the real question is whether Spider-man 3 can break Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest's opening weekend record. More...

2007 Preview: May

It's the first of May, which means it is the start of the summer blockbuster season. This year, May is dominated by sequels, and not just sequels; there are three monster franchises releasing their third installments this month. If these films were the only monster hits being released this month, I would assume that any of them would have little difficulty hitting $300 million; for that matter, all three would have a better than 50% shot at $400 million. However, it seems highly unlikely to have three $400 million movies open in one month, especially given there's never been two $400 million movies to open in the same year. But who knows, records have already fallen this year, so anything's possible. On a side note, there is a real gap between the big three and the rest of the new releases. There's a slim chance another sequel, 28 Weeks Later, could crack $100 million. However, it looks like the any of the big three releases will earn twice as much as all of the other films on this list will earn combined. More...

Contest - Friendly Neighborhood Box Office Prediction Contest

Woo hoo, the summer blockbuster season is here and to celebrate we have a packed box office prediction contest, including copies of Spider-Man 2 Special Edition on DVD. To win one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Spider-Man 3. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Spider-Man 2 Special Edition on DVD as well as Beverly Hills, 90210 - The Second Season on DVD. Meanwhile, the person who comes the closest to the film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a copy of Spider-Man 2 Special Edition on DVD as well as Born to Fight on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

Movie Website Updates for April 22 - April 28, 2007

It's a slow week in terms of the cream-of-the-crop sites. There are a few that look like they could be award-worthy once they have a few more updates, but for the most part this week we have a collection that is rather average. There was one stand-out site, Evan Almighty - Official Site, and it was the only choice for the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 15 - April 21, 2007

There were a few new flash sites to launch this week, but while there might be a couple future winners among those sites, it was a long time resident on this week's list that walked away with top honors. That site was Hot Fuzz - Official Site, which probably could have won several weeks ago if the features were added all at once. However, it's much better to spread the updates out in order to get people coming back week after week. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 8 - April 14, 2007

Even with the extra day, it was a slow week for websites. There were a couple films to have their full sites go live this week, but in both cases there was a lack of features. The best of the list is Pathfinder - Official Site, but it's not up to the level of an award winner. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 31 - April 7, 2007

It's the Saturday after Good Friday, which explains why this column was delayed one day. But while the Friday was good, this week's sites were mediocre, at least they were compared to high expectations. If this was January, it would be a great list. However, at this point of the year I'm expecting one potential summer blockbuster to have a major website launch each week, and that didn't happen this time. We still had an award-worthy effort with Grindhouse - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 24 - March 30, 2007

Awesome. We are finally getting some major updates to the summer blockbuster movies. The ones people are watching to see if they break records. This includes the first half of the massively interactive website for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - Official Site. And while the site isn't done yet, it is still more than enough to win the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 17 - March 23, 2007

Good week for trailers with several on the list, including a trio of major summer blockbusters. However, while those site will obviously generate the most traffic, they are not award-worthy sites, (at least not yet). The best site this week is Pathfinder - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 10 - March 16, 2007

We are starting to get some serious updates on the websites for the summer blockbusters, however, it will be a few more weeks before this list is dominated by such films. In the meantime, it is a website for a new release, Dead Silence - Official Site, that is the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 3 - March 9, 2007

We are starting to see more and more summer blockbusters launching or updating their websites. However, this week it was still a spring release taking top spot as The Fracture - Official Site won the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 17 - February 23, 2007

Big week in terms of flash sites launching, but a tough one when it comes to picking a winner. There were several sites that were contenders, and a few that will likely be winners after a few more updates, but none that stood out as the best for the week. It's almost like there were so many that were so close to winning the award that none were able to stand out and get me excited. However, there was one site that was updated this week that did, The Simpsons Movie - Official Site. This site did get a new look, but the real draw here is the first full trailer, to go along with the three previous teasers. Is that enough to make it award worthy? No. But while my rational side was distracted by a game of Sudoku the Fanboy in me made that decisions, and all Fanboy freak-outs are legally binding. Hopefully the final site will live up to the award. I have a feeling it will. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 3 - February 9, 2007

Still waiting sites for the big summer blockbusters to come online. In the meantime, this week is relatively busy, but with only a couple sites that look like they could be award-worthy once the features are added. The best of the best, and I use that term loosely, is Norbit - Official Site with a site that could be more entertaining than the movie it promotes. More...

Movie Website Updates for January 27 - February 2, 2007

Busy week for limited releases and a busy week for websites, which explains why I'm wrapping things up at midnight. There wasn't a whole lot on this week's list that really attracted my attention, but I'm giving the Weekly Website Award to Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters - Official Site, mainly for their ... extracurricular activities of the viral marketers in Boston. And remember people, real bombs are meant to be inconspicuous, they won't sing you a song or make rude gestures at you. More...

Movie Website Updates for January 13 - January 19, 2007

Another slow week, but its been that way for a while. I'm hoping that will change when the summer blockbusters start launching their full sites soon, in fact, Spider-Man 3's Official Site did go live this week, but it is mostly marked coming soon and too soon to give it the award just yet. More...

Movie Website Updates for December 30 - January 5, 2007

Big list as I try to catch up after the holidays. I think I caught all the updates. Not only are there a lot of sites on this week's list, several of them are potential award winners with the best of the best being Smokin' Aces - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for November 4 - November 10, 2006

There was a clear winner amongst this week's batch of websites as Stranger than Fiction - Official Site took home the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for October 21 - October 27, 2006

There was a good selection of sites this week in terms of updates, but unlike last week there were fewer contenders for the Weekly Website Award. That's not to say Let's Go to Prison - Official Site didn't deserve to win, it just had a lot less competition than it would have had if it launched last week. More...

Movie Website Updates for September 30 - October 6, 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...

Movie Website Updates for September 9 - September 15

High quantity on sites this week, but many of them were for new releases, most of which haven't had any updates in a while. Those that did have updates were generally quite small, but one site stood above them all, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny - Official Site, which is easily the winner of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for August 26 - September 1

Another busy week with plenty of top-notch films to chose from In the end, however, it was a two-way race between The Black Dahlia - Official Site and Stranger than Fiction - Official Site with the former site winning out by a narrow margin. More...

Movie Website Updates for August 19 - August 25

It's another busy week with nearly three dozen films being represented here. Taking top prize is Invincible - Official Site, although there were a few others that could take that claim before all is said and done. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 29 - August 4

Third week in a row where the number of sites featured on this list has topped 30. With such a busy week it would take something different to win the award, and that's something Michel Gondry excels at delivering giving The Science of Sleep - Official Site the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 15 - July 21

Another busy week, but unlike last week there was no massive blockbuster launching its flash site. Two sites stood out this week, (not counting past winners), and they are wildly different both in terms of style and in terms of the movie they are selling: Accepted - Official Site and World Trade Center - Official Site. The former is goofy and seriously immature, while the latter is one of the most emotional sites I've ever seen. In was nearly a coin flip, but in the end I went with Accepted - Official Site, but I would be willing to bet the other site will win before the movie comes out. More...

Movie Website Updates for June 24th - June 30th

It seems a lot of people are starting their holidays early, but not this column as it's the busiest it's been in more than a month. Including in this list are a few newly released teaser trailers and a handful of flash sites, most of which are worth checking out. But the best of the best is the Running With Scissors - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 7 - April 13

Back to normal levels of traffic on this list, but like last week there's not an over abundance of huge sites on this week's list. I hope that changes soon as the summer box office season is just around the corner. The best of the bunch this week is Hard Candy - Official Site, which has been slowly growing for months. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 24 - March 2

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. There was a three way race for top spot this week with Slither - Official Site taking home the award. However, it won based on equal parts what it is and what it should become once all the content marked coming soon is added to the site. More...

2004 Summer Preview - Part 3: June


Buy this poster at
AllPosters.com

After a rather mediocre May, June looks a lot stronger with two films that should break $300 million. Not surprisingly, these monster hits are being released unopposed during their respective weeks. And also not surprisingly, they are being released at opposite ends of the month. The rest of the films are unlikely to make much of an impact, although a few should cross the increasingly irrelevant $100 million plateau. More...
