Per Theater Chart is Getting Bloody

It was another slow week on the per theater chart with no film topping $10,000. The closest any film got was The Forgiveness of Blood with an average of $8,908 in three theaters. Goon's opening is also worth noting, as it made $1.27 million in 258 theaters in Canada. It is very rare for a Canadian film to open in more than a handful of theaters, while opening with more than $1 million almost never happens. It would be nice if the film could replicate this success in the States, but it is monstrously unlikely. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for February 28th, 2012

There are not a lot of new releases this week, but it includes four-time Oscar winner Hugo. The DVD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, or 3D Blu-ray Combo are clearly contenders for Pick of the Week, but so is My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: The Friendship Express. I'm going with the former, but it is close. More...

Limited Releases: Goon Looks to Ice Competition

After a couple weeks of Oscar nominated films coming out in limited release, it is literally Oscar week. Fans of art house films will likely be distracted with award ceremonies, so it is no real surprise that there are not that many limited releases. The film I'm most interested in seeing is Goon, but if you don't live in Canada, you will have to wait till the 30th of March to see it. More...
