Awards Season - Precious and Station Lead Independent Spirit Awards

December 2nd, 2009

As always, the Independent Spirit Awards represent the unofficial start of Awards Season with the announcement of their nominations. This year The Last Station and Precious topped the list of nominees with five each. For the former, it should help build buzz for its 2010 release. For the latter, it is the first step towards possible Awards Season glory and further enhances its already lofty box office potential. More...

DVD Releases for June 30th, 2009

June 29th, 2009

Summer blockbuster might fill multiplexes at the moment, but the home market releases are terrible. None of the first run releases are that worthy, and there are few limited release, catalogue titles, and TV on DVD to back them up. The best of the best all came from that last category with Eureka - Season 3.0, The IT Crowd - The Complete Second Season, Parker Lewis Can't Lose - Season One, and Stargate - Atlantis - Season Five all being in consideration for DVD Pick of the Week. I can't decide which one deserves the title the most, and while four releases are a bit much to be called DVD Pick of the Week, I'm going to call them all co-winners. More...

Valentino is a Monster on the Per Theater Chart

March 31st, 2009

Valentino: The Last Emperor remained on the top of the per theater chart with an average of $15,553 in two theaters. The overall number one film of the past weekend, Monsters vs. Aliens, opened in second place on the per theater chart with an average of $14,454 in more than 4,000 theaters. Ramin Bahrani finally had a box office hit, as Goodbye Solo earned nearly $40,000 in three theaters for an average of $12,681. Hopefully it will continue its strong run in the coming weeks. Sin Nombre was down less than 14% to $70,000 in 6 theaters for an average of $11,695. Meanwhile, American Swing rounded out the $10,000 club with $10,174. More...

Per Theater Chart is Being Watched

March 11th, 2009

The overall box office leader, Watchmen, was also the leader on the per theater chart with an average of $15,291 in more than 3,600 theaters. This was below expectations of many, but still a strong start. Tokyo! and Fados were able to reach the $10,000 mark with $11,730 and $10,823 respectively. More...

Updated Weekend Estimates: Madea Holds Top Spot as Jonas Brothers Bomb

March 1st, 2009

It is fair to say that expectations were generally too high for Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience this weekend, but even so its opening weekend, estimated at $12.7 million, is a major disappointment. The biggest surprise is that it didn't even take number one spot on the weekend chart, in spite of Madea Goes to Jail dropping nearly 60% from its opening weekend. Madea finished with $16.5 million, for a two week total of $64.8 million. Slumdog Millionaire earned an estimated $12.15 million on the back of its big Oscar wins. That's the biggest weekend so far for the movie, and its box office take has actually grown for 13 out of the 16 weekends it has been in theaters. More...

Gomorrah Heats up the Per Theater Chart

February 18th, 2009

Gomorrah led the way on the per theater chart this weekend with an average of $15,540 in seven theaters. Second place went to Two Lovers with an average of $13,569, proving yet again there is no such thing as bad publicity. Under the Sea 3-D opened with $13,490, and it should be in theaters for at least a year, if not two. The final film in the $10,000 club was the overall box office leader, Friday the 13th, which opened with an average of $13,066 in more than 3,000 theaters. More...

Movie Website Reviews for the Weekend of February 13th, 2009

February 15th, 2009

Three wide releases and three limited releases on this week's list, and while most have good sites, none have great sites. And none are worthy of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Limited Releases make an Offer You Can't Refuse

February 13th, 2009

Only three limited releases on this week's list, but all three are earning amazing reviews. This includes an IMAX documentary, a foreign language drama, and possibly the last film Joaquin Phoenix promotes before he is taken away in a straight-jacket. Or starts his rap career. For his sake, I hope it's the former. More...

International Details - Bolting to the Top

December 7th, 2008

Bolt started its run on the international charts in sixth place with $7.90 million on 1417 screens in 4 markets.
