DVD Releases for September 15th, 2009 - Part II

September 15th, 2009

The Christmas shopping season starts early this year, as it seems to do every year. Only 15 days into September we have the first summer blockbuster of the year coming out. While X-Men Origins - Wolverine will easily be the biggest release of the week, it won't be the best. I think the best selections out there are from the TV on DVD categories, which is common this time of year, and I would rank Sanctuary - Season One and Transformers - Season Two - Volume One as the best of the best and both are my pick for the DVD Pick of the Week. There was a large number of spotlight reviews, including a trio that arrived late, so the list had to be split into two. The first part can be found here. More...

Kit Still Making News on the Per Theater Chart

July 1st, 2008

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl repeated on top of the per theater chart this week, pulling in close to $110,000 in 5 theaters for an average of $21,404. However, that was more than 50% less that its opening weekend average, which is a sharp drop-off for a limited release. The Last Mistress opened in second place with an average of $16,777 in two theaters. Two wide releases were neck-and-neck with Wanted earning an average of $16,040 and WALL-E right behind with $15,803. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of June 27, 2008

June 28th, 2008

Strange week for movie sites as both wide releases could have won the weekly website award. However, of the seven limited releases, most didn't even have full sites. The best of the week was WALL-E - Official Site, while an honorable mention goes to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, which released its teaser trailer this week. More...

#1 Limited Release

June 27th, 2008

Not a lot in terms of limited releases this week, especially when it comes to high quality releases. While 60% positive reviews are considered overall positive, it generally takes 80% positive reviews for a limited release to thrive. This week, there are no limited releases to reach that level (although a couple come close and could reach that mark as more reviews come in). This makes it difficult to see which, if any of these films will break out. More...
