DVD and Blu-ray Releases for June 29th, 2010

June 28th, 2010

It's not a bad week on the home market (for this time of year anyway), with a few midlevel hits worth checking out, as well as an assortment of TV on DVD, Limited Releases, and others to fill in the gaps. Of the first run releases, Hot Tub Time Machine is the one I'm looking forward to the most and if it has a good selection of extras, it could be Pick of the Week material. However, the screener won't be shipped to me till tomorrow, so the review will be a few days late at the earliest. That leaves Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage - Blu-ray as the clear Pick of the Week winner. More...

How to Win on the Per Theater Chart

March 30th, 2010

Only one film earned more than $10,000 on the per theater chart, and that was the overall box office leader, How to Train Your Dragon. That film earned an average or $10,785 in more than 4,000 theaters. More...

My Name is King of the Per Theater Chart

February 17th, 2010

My Name is Khan beat expectations by a large margin with an average of $16,200 in 120 theaters over the three-day weekend and $18,875 million over four. The overall box office champ, Valentine's Day, placed second with an average of $15,351 over the three-day weekend. The Red Riding Trilogy held on strong with averages of $13,374 / $17,056. The re-release of Ran took in $10,128 from Friday to Sunday and $13,470 including Monday in its lone theater. More...

Awards Season: Avatar Not Hurting for Oscar Nominations

February 2nd, 2010

Oscar nominations were announced at 5:38 this morning, continuing a tradition that have never been adequately explained to me. (Why so early in the morning? Does earning an Oscar nomination become sweeter if people have to wake you up to congratulate you?) Leading the way in nominations were Avatar and The Hurt Locker, both of which pick up nine nods each, many of them in the same categories. More...

Awards Season: Avatar Has a Golden Night

January 17th, 2010

Some might debate the predictive value of The Golden Globes. After all, they don't have all of the same categories as the Oscars, and the results for Best Picture in particular have varied from the Oscar result many times over the years. However, it is hard to argue with the free publicity a film gets from winning, and the big winner tonight was Avatar. More...

Imaginarium Tops the Per Theater Chart

January 5th, 2010

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus topped the per theater chart this weekend, based on reports from theaters in the United States. The film earned $128,000 in 4 theaters for an average of $31,909, which is roughly what it made last weekend. It is also playing in many more theaters in Canada, but numbers have not been reported from those locations, at least so far this week. The final figures may therefore, as last week, push the final average down considerably. Second place went to to Lovely Bones, which climbed more than 54% to an average of $21,559 in three theaters. This is excellent news for its planned expansion in a couple of weeks, assuming it doesn't fall by the same amount next week. White Ribbon opened next with an average of $19,949, also in three theaters. The overall number one film, Avatar, was just a fraction behind, earning an average of $19,789. At this point, we've nearly run out of superlatives to describe the film's box office run and it is far from over. Crazy Heart saw growth over the weekend, up 38% to an average of $18,416. 3 Idiots expanded somewhat and earned a very impressive average of $11,322 in 132 theaters. A Single Man returned to the $10,000 club with an average of $10,586 in 46 theaters. The final film in the $10,000 club was Sherlock Holmes, which fell sharply but still managed an average of $10,097. More...

Oscar Hopefuls have one Last Chance

January 1st, 2010

In order to qualify for this year's Oscars, a film had to open before today, so it comes as no surprise that the two films on this week's list of limited releases both opened on Wednesday. However, it does come as a bit of a surprise that there are only two films and only one of them has any real shot at picking up a nomination. More...

Awards Season - Golden Globe Nominations are Up in the Air

December 16th, 2009

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations this week, but looking over the list of films chosen, it is hard to declare any one film as the big winner. Up in the Air did pick up six Golden Globe nominations, including several of the most prestigious nominations, but it is far from the only major player. More...
