DVD Releases for May 17, 2005

May 16th, 2005

Every week films get a second chance at success from the home market; or, in some cases, a first chance at success. Here is a list of wide releases, limited releases, classics and a few from the growing TV on DVD section. While this week's releases are very deep, there are two very, very strong TV on DVD releases. First we have the greatest sitcom on TV today, Scrubs - The Complete First Season - Buy from Amazon and second we have possibly the greatest sitcom of all time Seinfeld - The Complete Fourth Season - Buy from Amazon.

Slow Dancing to $100 million

May 8th, 2005

Golden Week helped Shall We Dance? climb 19% to $2,250,195 for the weekend and $7,270,348 during its run. The film now has $90.3 million internationally and could break $100 million if it continues to show strong legs in Japan. More...

International: Constantine Continues to Climb

May 1st, 2005

It was a good news, bad news kind of weekend for Constantine. The film remained in top spot in Japan with $2,330,027 on 349 screens for a $9,011,671 running tally in the market. Bad news, it dropped 37% during its second weekend in the market, which is really steep for Japan. Overall the film brought in $3 million on 1,200 screens in 40 markets for a international box office of $136.4 million. More...

No Change in Heart for the Per Theater Charts

October 12th, 2004

I Heart Huckabees again led a busy week on the Per Theatre Charts with just over $900,000 in 44 theatres for an average of $20,480. Guiana 1838 continues to impress, earning $16,610 in its lone theatre. The award season hopeful, Stage Beauty, got off to a good start with an average of $12,885 in three theatres. And Tarnation opened in one theatre over the weekend and earned an estimate 58 times its $220 production budget with $12,740. (Although that production budget is misleading because it only takes into account the editing software and not the decade's worth of home movie film, still photographs, etc. used to make the film, nor post-production, prints and advertising.)
