DVD Releases for April 14th, 2009 - Part I

April 14th, 2009

Not a busy week on the home market with the least number of new releases on this week for a number of weeks. (It seems busier than it is, because of all of the spotlight reviews. In fact, there are as many spotlight reviews as there are simple mentions. Additionally, there are more spotlight reviews for late arrivals than there are for this week's releases.) Looking for the best of the best, there's not a lot on top worth of the DVD Pick of the Week. The release I'm looking forward to the most is Lost in Austen - Buy from Amazon, which I'm awarding the DVD Pick of the Week. Thanks to the number of spotlight reviews, this week's list had to be split into two with the second part found here. More...

DVD Sales - Treasure Richer on the Sales Chart

June 1st, 2008

The last of 2008's monster hits finally hit the home market last week, and it made quite an impact. National Treasure: Book of Secrets opened in first place on the sales chart and had the second best opening for the year with 3.49 million units sold and opening week sales of $55.77 million. More...

DVD Rentals - National Finds Treasure

June 1st, 2008

There were not many new releases to chart this week, but one of them, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, took first place with $8.66 million in rentals. More...

DVD Releases for May 20, 2008

May 20th, 2008

This week's list is dominated by Blu-ray releases. This is not surprising as this is the first week Paramount has released Blu-ray discs after dropping the format last August for an exclusive HD DVD commitment. However, it is another Blu-ray release that caught my eye: the National Treasure Blu-ray Two-Pack. This is the best format has to offer this week, but it is not the best movie coming out. If you want the DVD Pick of the Week, you have to grab Night of the Living Dead Buy from Amazon. More...

Weekend Box Office Equal Parts Gold and Fool

February 12th, 2008

Results over the weekend were mixed with the number one film opening above expectations by a small degree, but the top five weaker than predicted. This led to the overall box office coming in at just over $112 million, which is down 12% from last weekend. However, it is virtually tied with the same weekend last year. (It is currently down by less than $200,000, but that could change as some independent films finalize their weekend figures and release the numbers later this week.) If late returns can't make up the difference, 2008's winning streak will be over, but it is still up 15% over 2007, which is a huge margin. More...

Super Bowl Weekend Offers a Number of Surprises

February 5th, 2008

The New York Giants stopped the Patriots from completing a perfect season. However, from where I'm sitting, this isn't the biggest news of the weekend. Multiple records were broken by Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. This helped the overall box office hit $128 million over the weekend, which is down 10% from last weekend, but this is reasonable considering this is a post-holiday weekend and Super Bowl Weekend. More importantly, the overall box office was up 40% from the same weekend in 2007, and 2008 is off to an early 16% lead from last year. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of February 1, 2008

February 2nd, 2008

Like most weeks this year, I was not wowed by any of the sites for this week's releases. Most could not rise above effective or average. Hopefully this trend will change soon as we get out of the early year doldrums. More...

2008 Preview: February

February 1st, 2008

2008 got off to a faster than expected start with January helping the year to a 17.5% lead over 2007. It seems unlikely that February will be able to keep up that pace, but there are still enough releases that most avid moviegoers should find something to get excited about. Granted, this is partially due to the combination of the lead year and February 29th landing on a Friday. This means we have five weekends in February this year, something that only happens approximately once every 28 years, which explains the number of films. More...

Hannah Headed for the Top

February 1st, 2008

February starts off with what could be the most unlikely of box office hits in Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. It isn't the only new release this week, but it is looking very likely that it will be the strongest. Granted, a lot of this has to due with Super Bowl Sunday, which siphons off a lot of potential moviegoers, especially the younger male demographic. More...

If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
