DVD Rentals - Feeling Smart

November 19th, 2008

The same two new releases that topped the sales chart this week also topped the rental chart with Get Smart generating about 40% more revenue than Kung Fu Panda. More...

DVD Releases for November 18, 2008 - Part II

November 18th, 2008

It's a weird week for the DVD release report. According to Amazon, seven of the top ten releases come from two movie: WALL-E and Tropic Thunder. Add in the Spanish language edition and there are five versions of the former movie coming out this week, including the 3-Disc DVD and the 3-Disc Blu-ray, either one of which is worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week. The overall group of releases feels weaker than last week, but it is more than enough that it had to be split into two parts. Part one can be found here. More...

Contest - Take Solace in the Blu Skies

November 7th, 2008

One of the most anticipated films of the season, Quantum of Solace opens next week, and it is this week's target film. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Quantum of Solace. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win Firefly - The Complete Series on Blu-ray. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win Transsiberian on DVD and Sukiyaki Western Django on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! Please note that we will be sending the Blu-ray via Amazon directly to the winner, and we need your phone number to do that. More...

DVD Releases for November 4, 2008

November 3rd, 2008

This week's list of DVD and Blu-rays feels a little shorter than usual. Either the problems I've been having with Amazon has caused me to miss a lot of releases, or this is just the calm before the storm. It won't be too long before the holiday shopping season starts, and when it does we will be flooded with DVDs and Blu-rays. As for the best of what's here, I'm going with Futurama - Bender's Game, either on DVD or Blu-ray. More...

Rachel Gets Hitched to Per Theater Chart

October 7th, 2008

It was a light week for limited releases, but we had one of the best results of the year on the per theater chart with Rachel Getting Married earning an amazing $32,597. More...

No Secret Who Tops the Per Theater Chart

September 9th, 2008

There was only one film that earned more than $10,000 on the per theater chart, as A Secret managed to make $37,000 in 3 theaters for an average of $12,378. More...

Siberia Heats Up on the Per Theater Chart

August 5th, 2008

It took three weeks, but Transsiberian landed on top of the per theater chart with an estimated $27,000 in just 2 theaters for an average of $13,500, which was a little more than it earned last week. Also in limited release, Man on Wire saw its overall number drop by a small amount despite doubling its theater count to 4, which resulted in its average falling to $12,119. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor opened with an average of $10,760 in 3,760 theaters. Frozen River barely reached the $10,000 mark with an average of $10,033 in 7 theaters, although it wasn't as close as The Dark Knight was, as that film earned an average of $10,001. More...

Wire Towers Higher than Bat

July 29th, 2008

Man on Wire topped the per theater chart this week by pulling in an impressive average of $25,696 in two theaters. This was ahead of the overall box office leader, The Dark Knight, which earned an average of $17,216 in more than 4,000 theaters. Transsiberian also repeated in the $10,000 club, down roughly 23% to $13,280. Brideshead Revisited opened in 22 theaters, which is a lot of a limited release, but still managed an average of $10,291 during its opening weekend, which bodes well for its prospects at expansion. The final film to reach $10,000 did so by the narrowest of narrow margins as Step Brothers topped that milestone by less than 24 cents. More...

Good Knight on the Per Theater Chart

July 22nd, 2008

During its record-breaking weekend, The Dark Knight set the record for best per theater average for a wide releases, so it comes as no surprise it tops the per theater chart this weekend, and did so with $36,283. The only other film to top $10,000 was Transsiberian with an average of $17,308 in two theaters while Before I Forget came close with $9,676 in one theater. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of July 18, 2008

July 19th, 2008

There were a lot of movies released this week, and while not all of them had real sites, it was still busier than usual. No one site really wowed this week, but The Dark Knight's Official Site, plus its two side sites combined into an award worthy effort. More...

Very Limited Releases

July 18th, 2008

Another week without an obvious breakout hit. I'm starting to think we won't have one this summer. Perhaps Hamlet 2 will have what it takes, but as for this week, there are a large number of releases, but none that are opening in more than 2 theaters and very few are earning overwhelmingly positive reviews.
