DVD Sales: Winning the Game

February 18th, 2010

Half a dozen new releases reached the top 30 on this week's sales chart and one of them reached number one. Even so, it was a really weak list. Gamer opened in first place, but it only sold 346,000 units and generated $5.78 million in consumer spending at retail. That's mediocre, no matter what its ranking. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 19th, 2010

January 19th, 2010

The flood of home debuts for September releases continues this week and unfortunately there are not a lot of TV on DVD releases or limited releases to take up the slack at the top. There are a few releases that are of interest though, including The Invention of Lying on Blu-ray and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging on DVD. The former probably has more mainstream appeal, but the latter is the better film, and with plenty of extras on the DVD, it is the Pick of the Week. More...

That's A Spicy Box Office

September 21st, 2009

As expected, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs finished in first place over the weekend, and it beat industry expectations by earning more than $30 million. This helped the overall box office grow by 9.9% from last weekend. The total weekend haul of $101 million was also 14.9% higher than the same weekend last year. Year to date, 2009 has made $7.70 billion at the box office, which is 7.9% higher than last year's pace. This isn't as large a lead as the box office has had this year, but it's still fantastic. More...

Autumn Box Office Starts a Little Soft

September 15th, 2009

The first official weekend of Autumn was not great at the box office, as every single new release missed expectations, some by small margins, others quite dramatically. This was enough to push the total box office down to $92 million, off 6.7% from last weekend and 8.7% lower than the same weekend last year. Year-to-date, 2009 is still up on 2008 by a significant margin, leading $7.53 billion to $7.00 billion. More...

Weekend Estimates: Perry Tops Chart with $24 Million

September 13th, 2009

Tyler Perry topped the charts once again this weekend as I Can Do Bad All By Myself scored a solid $24 million opening, according to Lionsgate's Sunday estimate. While that's not a record for Perry, it is the best he's managed with a Fall release so far. His strategy of releasing two movies a year in what are generally down periods at the box office -- February/March and September/October -- has paid off again with his fifth number one opening. Focus Features' 9 came in second with an estimated $10.9 million over the weekend for a total of $15.3 million after five days. More...

How Good Will Bad Do?

September 11th, 2009

Fall officially begins with the weekend after Labor Day, which in many years is the worst weekend of the year. That probably won't be the case now thanks to Tyler Perry's propensity for wearing dresses. This time last year wasn't the first weekend after Labor Day (it's a strange year this year and the weekends don't line up perfectly) and this will mean 2009 might have a little more trouble keeping up with last year than it normally would. 2009 should still come out ahead, but it will be close compared to the first weekend of Fall from last year.

Trailers for Movies Opening September 8-11, 2009

September 9th, 2009


2009 Preview: September

September 1st, 2009

Summer ended on a strong note with three films from August that have the potential to cross $100 million at the box office. But I don't think there's a single film coming out this month that has the potential to do the same. Then again, we're not concerned with keeping up with August, we are concerned with keeping up with September last year, and that will be an easier task most weeks. More...

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.
