DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 4th, 2010

May 5th, 2010

We are entering summer, which is a great time of year for the box office, but a terrible time for home market releases. According to Amazon.com, the best-selling release of the week is Saving Private Ryan on Blu-ray, which is also arguably the best release of the week.

Sun is Shining on Per Theater Chart

March 17th, 2009

Sunshine Cleaning had the best per theater average of any film so far this year, pulling in an outstanding $220,000 in 4 theaters for an average of $54,798.

The re-release of Z was the only other film to top $10,000 with an average of $10,144; however, Fados came close with $9,788. More...

The former has better design, the latter has better interactive features. Both should sell the movie to their respective audiences, and both are recipients of the Weekly Website Award. More...

March 13th, 2009

The first limited release with a real shot at expanding wide opens this week. However, Sunshine Cleaning isn't the only movie on this week's list worth checking out. If you live in Toronto or Vancouver, go and see Pontypool, while those in New York City can also catch Tokyo Sonata. More...
