DVD Sales - A Fool and His Gold

July 1st, 2008

Fool's Gold led a quartet of new releases on the DVD sales chart this week, selling 595,000 units for opening week revenue of $10.65 million. More...

DVD Rentals - Golden Debut

July 1st, 2008

Just as it did on the sales chart, Fool's Gold led a all new releases on its way to placing first on the rental chart. However, it was a close race between it and Jumper. More...

DVD Releases for June 17, 2008

June 16th, 2008

Another busy week, but one that feels loaded with quantity and low on quality. None of the first run releases stand out and there's precious little else to make up. That's not to say there are no DVDs worth buying, as there are. My recommended list includes Burn Notice - Season One - Buy from Amazon, Classe Tous Risques - Criterion Collection - Buy from Amazon, Popeye the Sailor - 1938-1940 - Volume 2 - Buy from Amazon, and Men in Black - Special Edition - Blu-ray - Buy from Amazon, to name more than a few. However, none struck me as qualifiers for DVD Pick of the Week. More...

Jumping to the Top

February 20th, 2008

The streak is over. For the first time in a while we saw decline on the year-to-year comparison. In fact, it wasn't even close as the overall box office earned $136 million over three days and $165 million over four. In both cases this represents double-digit declines, but 2008 is still leading 2007 by 11%, $1.29 billion to $1.16 billion. More...

Weekend Box Office Equal Parts Gold and Fool

February 12th, 2008

Results over the weekend were mixed with the number one film opening above expectations by a small degree, but the top five weaker than predicted. This led to the overall box office coming in at just over $112 million, which is down 12% from last weekend. However, it is virtually tied with the same weekend last year. (It is currently down by less than $200,000, but that could change as some independent films finalize their weekend figures and release the numbers later this week.) If late returns can't make up the difference, 2008's winning streak will be over, but it is still up 15% over 2007, which is a huge margin. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of February 8, 2008

February 9th, 2008

Not much competition for the Weekly Website Award as only one site truly stood out as above average. That site was for Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins - Official Site, and won thanks to a combination of regular features, video clips, and games. More...

Three Films in the Hunt for Box Office Treasure

February 7th, 2008

We have two wide releases this week, Fool's Gold and Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, but we could have a repeat champion atop the box office as Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour has proven strong during the week thus far. More...

2008 Preview: February

February 1st, 2008

2008 got off to a faster than expected start with January helping the year to a 17.5% lead over 2007. It seems unlikely that February will be able to keep up that pace, but there are still enough releases that most avid moviegoers should find something to get excited about. Granted, this is partially due to the combination of the lead year and February 29th landing on a Friday. This means we have five weekends in February this year, something that only happens approximately once every 28 years, which explains the number of films. More...
