DVD Sales - First place to Yuma

January 21st, 2008

3:10 to Yuma led a group of new releases on this week's sales chart earning an impressive $20.16 million from 1.07 million in sales. More...

DVD Rentals - Yuma on Track

January 21st, 2008

Just as it did on the sales chart, 3:10 to Yuma was the best on the rental charts. It was part of a group of six new releases to chart, and pulled in $10.76 million during its first week of release. More...

DVD Releases for January 8, 2008

January 8th, 2008

We are back to a relatively normal level of DVD releases this week, including a few that are worth considering for DVD Pick of the Week. Both 3:10 to Yuma on Blu-Ray and The Riches - Season 1 on DVD are prime contenders. If you don't have Blu-Ray, it's the latter, while if you do, it's the former. More...

Two Tops on Per Theater Chart

August 14th, 2007

2 Days in Paris was number one on the per theater chart with an average of $17,364 in its 10 theaters. This suggests a strong possibility it will expand and it should earn at least some measure of mainstream success. The overall box office leader, Rush Hour 3, was the only other film to top $10,000 as it grabbed an average of $12,996. More...

Ultimatum Alone on Top of the Per Theater Chart

August 7th, 2007

The Bourne Ultimatum was the only film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart this week, earning an impressive $18,930, which was close to double its nearest competition. But, while there was only one member of the $10,000 club, a few films came very close, including Becoming Jane with $9,721, which is even more impressive with a theater count of 100. It is also more than enough to guarantee expansion. More...

No End on the Per Theater Chart

July 31st, 2007

Transformation: The Life & Legacy of Werner Erhard surprised on top of the per theater chart with an impressive $25,460 earned in its lone theater. The overall box office leader, The Simpsons Movie, was in second place with $18,877 while This is England was close behind with $18,430. The political documentary, No End in Sight opened very strongly with more than $30,000 in 2 theaters for an average of $15,767. Finally, The Devil Came on Horseback also topped $10,000 with $11,143 over the weekend and $18,336 since Wednesday. More...

Simpsons Rake in the D'oh!

July 30th, 2007

Practically every film in the top five beat expectations, including The Simpsons Movie, which crushed expectations. This helped push the overall box office to $185 million over the weekend and that was roughly 19% higher than the last weekend and a stunning 40% higher than the same weekend last year. With one or two more summer releases that could top $200 million, this has been a very lucrative season and one that helped to put 2007 in the record books. More...

The Writing is on the Wall (or should that be Blackboard?)

July 27th, 2007

One of the most important and anticipated films of modern times opens in theaters this weekend. The Simpsons Movie looks to change how we look at culture and perhaps change the very way we humans interact. OK, probably not, but it should make a boatload of money at the box office this weekend. More...

Joint Partnership for Sunshine on Per Theater Chart

July 24th, 2007

Sunshine opened stronger than expected at the weekend, earning close to $250,000 in 10 theaters for an average of $24,296. This is more than enough to justify expanding over the coming weeks, but a wide release is still not guaranteed. The only other film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart was Partner with $10,073. More...

Movie Website Updates for July 15 - July 21, 2007

July 21st, 2007

Big list in terms of numbers, not so much in terms of quality. In fact, the best film in terms of updates this week was The Simpsons Movie - Official Site, which has already won the Weekly Website Award. Because of that, there are no new winners this week. More...

New Movie US Release Dates - July 22, 2007

Your Mommy goes to Limited Releases

July 20th, 2007

There are a couple of films opening in limited release this weekend that might expand wide, Sunshine and Goya's Ghosts. If I were to put money on the outcome, I would say Sunshine has the better shot at mainstream success, but both will have a difficult time making it. More...

2007 Preview: July

July 1st, 2007

After a record-breaking start, the summer has slowed down considerably. Granted, it is still hot with a number of big, big blockbusters coming out. In fact, every week in July there's at least one potential $100 million movie. But that's nothing compared to what we saw in May when we have three films open with $100 million. Even worse, outside the four main releases, none of the counter-programming releases look like they will become hits and that will hurt the overall box office. More...

New Movie US Release Dates - May 27, 2007

International Details - 300's Last Stab at Glory

May 6th, 2007

300 was knocked out of the top five this week but still added $3.82 million on 3,537 screens in 52 markets for a total of $223.77 million. The film has yet to open in Japan, but that's about it at this point and there's little hope that the movie will hit any more milestones from now until then. However, it is already a massive hit and a huge financial boon for the studio, so everything it does earn will be pure gravy. More...

International Details - Reaping the Rewards

April 29th, 2007

The Reaping climbed into sixth place this past weekend with $5.98 million on 2634 screens in 39 markets for a total of just $20.38 million. The film had a couple respectable openings including South Korea where it made $1.17 million on 129 screens over the weekend and $1.34 million in total while it took in $335,000 in Brazil. However, in most markets the film stumbled, like in France where is placed seventh with $684,000 or the the U.K. where it placed eighth with $622,000 on 282 screens. The film debuted in ninth place in Australia, ($405,000 on 133 screens); in Russia, ($261,000 on 111); and in Germany, ($247,000 on 201). Mexico became the film's best market as it has pulled in $4.45 million in three weeks, including $589,000 on 350 screens this past weekend; this is just ahead of the $4.25 million the film has earned in Spain, but it only managed $334,000 on 299 screens this past weekend and will quickly disappear there. More...

International Details - Sun Shines during Sophomore Stint

April 22nd, 2007

Sunshine climbed into sixth place with $5.20 million on 1866 screens in 30 markets for a total of $10.20 million. However, while it nearly doubled last week's opening, this was entirely due to the film's expansion. Its biggest market of the weekend was France where it placed fourth with $1.36 million on 339 screens while it placed eighth in its debut in Australia with just $611,000 on 161 screens. On the other hand, the film only managed $508,000 on 192 screens during its debut in Japan and while likely see a sharp drop-off next weekend given its weak per screen average. Meanwhile in the U.K. the film suffered the worst week-to-week drop-off in the top ten down 57% to $879,000 on 409 screens over the weekend and a total of $4.45 million in total. More...

International Details - Hogs Gone Wild

April 15th, 2007

Wild Hogs had its best performance of its run so far climbing into sixth place with $3.33 million on 817 screens in 8 markets for a total of $18.43 million after a month of release. About half of that came from the film's number one debut in Mexico where it earned $1.33 million on 355 screens over the weekend and $1.67 million including previews while the film did reasonable business in Taiwan with $345,000 on 40. Its best market to date has been Australia where the film has earned $11.30 million, including $907,000 on 263 screens this past weekend. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 31 - April 7, 2007

April 7th, 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

March 31st, 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...
