DVD Rentals - Summer Repeats

September 16th, 2007

There wasn't a single new release in the top five this week leaving the rankings identical to last week. This meant Blades of Glory remained in first place with $7.03 million in rental for the week and $16.50 after two. More...

DVD Rentals - Blades Leads a Quartet of New Releases

September 9th, 2007

There was only one new release to reach the top five this week, or the top ten for that matter, as Blades of Glory opened with $9.47 million in rentals. More...

DVD Rentals - Holdovers Hog the Top Five

September 2nd, 2007

While there were plenty of new releases that charted this week, the top five was nearly identical to last week. In fact, the top four were identical, which left Wild Hogs in first place with $7.81 million in rentals over the week and $17.75 million in total. More...

DVD Rentals - New Releases Hog Half the Spots on the Rental Chart

August 26th, 2007

New releases took three of the top five places on the DVD rental chart, including first place. Wild Hogs was the overall rental leader with $9.94 million, which was in line with Disturbia's opening last week. More...

DVD Sales - Sales Chart Goes Wild

August 26th, 2007

Wild Hogs led a healthy group of new releases to win the race on the DVD sales chart with 2.20 million units sold and $35.16 million in first week sales. More...

DVD Releases for August 14, 2007

August 13th, 2007

It's a busy week for first-run releases, with five such films appearing on this week's list. But even with a couple of them being worth picking up, including Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD - Buy from Amazon, the cream-of-the-crop were releases of new special editions. This includes two Jim Henson films, Labyrinth - Anniversay Edition and The Dark Crystal - 25th Anniversary Edition, but the best of the best is Taxi Driver - Two-Disc Collector's Edition. More...

International Details - Die Hard still has Life Left

August 12th, 2007

Live Free or Die Hard was knocked out of the top five but still earned $7.15 million on 317 screens in 29 markets for a total of $192.83 million. The film opened in first place in four markets, with the biggest being Brazil at $1.60 million on 352 screens over the weekend and $2.07 million in total. At this pace the film would hit $200 million this weekend, even if it didn't open in Australia, while it will top Die Hard with a Vengeance's worldwide total shortly. More...

International Details - Spidey Swings into the Sunset

June 24th, 2007

Spider-Man 3 fell out of the top five for the first time during its run, but since it has already hit $500 million internationally and is closing in on $900 million worldwide, this is hardly a reason to panic. Over the weekend the film added $3.02 million on 3914 screens in 65 markets for a total of $543.87 million, putting it in 11th place all time, just behind Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings. Worldwide the film had $873.88 million at the end of the weekend, which means it also places 11th on that all-time chart, but will top Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets before long. More...

April Ends with an Ugh

May 1st, 2007

Wow. That was one of the worst weekends I can remember. There was almost nothing worth celebrating as the overall box office dipped by 12% from last weekend to $78 million. That's nearly 24% lower than the same weekend last year and probably the worst weekend in more than a year. (We'll have more details on that when the box office chart is certified later this week.) The only silver lining I can think of is a possible reason for this massive dip. In my opinion, a lot of people who thought about going to the movies this weekend likely said, "Let's wait a week and catch Spider-man 3 instead." I can't prove this happened, but this time next weekend if Spider-man 3 has broken records, we'll know that it is a likely scenario. More...

Disturbing News for New Releases

April 23rd, 2007

It was a slow weekend at the box office as most of the new releases, and a couple of the holdovers, were unable to live up to expectations. How slow was it? The overall box office dropped below $100 million. It fell 25% from last weekend to just $89 million and that's a severe 19% drop-off from the same weekend last year. In fact this was the worst weekend since last September. However, it is important to note that overall 2007 is still ahead of last year's pace by 5% and most analysts expect many, many records to fall this summer. More...

Weekend Estimates: Disturbia Unmoved at Top of Chart

April 22nd, 2007

Disturbia held off a batch of openers to spend a second weekend at the top of the box office chart, according to studio estimates released on Sunday. The thriller earned a solid $13.46 million, down just under 40% from last weekend. That was a couple of million more than fellow-thriller Fracture, which opened with an estimated $11.18 million. Vacancy had the most disappointing start among the main contenders for box office victory, earning $7.6 million and falling behind Blades of Glory over the weekend to finish fourth. More...

Movie Website Updates for April 15 - April 21, 2007

April 21st, 2007

There were a few new flash sites to launch this week, but while there might be a couple future winners among those sites, it was a long time resident on this week's list that walked away with top honors. That site was Hot Fuzz - Official Site, which probably could have won several weeks ago if the features were added all at once. However, it's much better to spread the updates out in order to get people coming back week after week. More...

Will a New Release find a Vacancy on Top of the Charts?

April 19th, 2007

Another week, another batch of new movies that are hoping to find a spot in the top ten. While there are four wide - or wide-ish - releases, none are tracking with any real strength and there's a good chance Disturbia will be a repeat winner this weekend. However, two newcomers, Fracture and Vacancy, stand a catch of stealing first. All three films are so evenly matched, we might not know the winner until the final numbers are released on Monday. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 31 - April 7, 2007

April 7th, 2007

It's the Saturday after Good Friday, which explains why this column was delayed one day. But while the Friday was good, this week's sites were mediocre, at least they were compared to high expectations. If this was January, it would be a great list. However, at this point of the year I'm expecting one potential summer blockbuster to have a major website launch each week, and that didn't happen this time. We still had an award-worthy effort with Grindhouse - Official Site. More...

2007 Preview: April

April 1st, 2007

April is an interesting month to open a movie. Interesting, but not a particularly good month. This year it does start with Easter, but that's traditionally not a strong long weekend. Only one movie has topped $40 million over that weekend and only one other has cracked $30 million. Worst still, it's jammed right up against May, the start of the summer blockbusters season. Ironically, the closer you get to this most lucrative time of year, the tougher it is for films to make a buck. No movie wants to open the weekend before Spider-man 3, for instance. Overall, there are a few hits to be found in the month, and a few misses, but nothing that really stands out above the pack. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 24 - March 30, 2007

March 31st, 2007

Awesome. We are finally getting some major updates to the summer blockbuster movies. The ones people are watching to see if they break records. This includes the first half of the massively interactive website for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - Official Site. And while the site isn't done yet, it is still more than enough to win the Weekly Website Award. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 17 - March 23, 2007

March 24th, 2007

Good week for trailers with several on the list, including a trio of major summer blockbusters. However, while those site will obviously generate the most traffic, they are not award-worthy sites, (at least not yet). The best site this week is Pathfinder - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for February 24 - March 2, 2007

March 2nd, 2007

Just an average week in terms of updates, but there are a couple sites of note including the winner of the Weekly Website Award, Wild Hogs - Official Site. More...

New Movie US Release Dates - October 29, 2006

This week's round of new movie release information contains release dates for Blood Diamond, Dark Materials and more. More...

The shaded area represents the expected performance range for a film, based on its opening weekend box office. 95% of films fall within the shaded area. If a film trends towards the top end of the shaded area, it has good legs compared to the average film; if it trends towards the bottom end of the shaded area, it has poor legs. The predictive area is based on movies from the past 5 years.
