DVD Rentals - Burn, Baby, Burn

This week on the rental charts we have late releases from the week of the 16th, all the releases from the week of the 23rd, and early releases from the 30th. The number on rental for the week was Burn After Reading, which generated about a sixth more revenue than second place Death Race. More...

DVD Sales - Knight Rises

This week, new releases were practically non-existent on the DVD sales chart. In fact, the best selling releases to make their debut on the chart were the late releases from last week. The best seller overall this week was The Dark Knight with 1.69 million units and $37.11 million in consumer retail spending for the week, giving it just a hair under 12.00 million units sold and $252.82 million in sales after three. This is clearly the best selling DVD of 2008 having sold over 1 million units more than WALL-E and nearly $70 million more in retail sales. More...

DVD Rentals - Mummy not Mamma Leads the Way

There were five new releases to chart this week, including The Mummy - Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, which topped the charts just ahead of last week's winner, The Dark Knight. More...

International Details - Bolt Best of the Rest

No new openings left Bolt out of the top five with $4.94 million on 1916 screens in 11 markets for a total of $28.69 million. Its best market was Russia where it slipped to second place with $1.20 million on 570 screens for a three-week total of $10.73 million, while it added $1.06 million on 412 screens over the weekend in Spain for a total of $3.96 million after two. The film has yet to open in most major markets, and won't until the new year, but when it is done it should surpass its domestic total while aiming for $250 million worldwide. More...

DVD Releases for December 16, 2008

This week is a confusing one on the home market as there are DVDs coming out on Tuesday the 16th, as usual, and on Friday the 19th, and Sunday the 21st as well. While there are a number of great releases that are spread out over three days, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is the best on any day, and worthy of the DVD Pick of the Week. More...

Weekend Weakness from the Top on Down

It was not a good weekend at the box office with just one of the four new releases beating expectations, and even then it was by just a rounding error. Overall box office receipts were $88 million over the weekend, which was down 13% from last week. More importantly, it was down 9% from the same weekend last year, which was not expected. Year-to-date, 2008 is still behind 2007, but at a margin of just $6.98 billion to $7.04 billion, and a strong fall and holiday box office would be enough to catch up. More...

International Details - Journey on the International Box Office

Journey To The Centre of the Earth opened in first place in Australia by a huge margin with $2.87 million on 362 screens, more than four times its nearest competitor. Overall the film made $6.41 million on 1417 screens in 27 markets for a total of $57.65 million, with a few smaller openings from now till its debut in Japan at the end of October. More...

Burn on Fire at the Box Office

Four films opened wide this weekend, and all four finished in the top four, which is the first time that's happened in more than a year and a half. The strength of the new releases helped the overall box office bounce back, as it was up 49% from last weekend at $101 million. More importantly, it was up more than 28% from the same weekend last year, which ended a seven-week losing streak. Year-to-date, 2008 is still behind, but the gap was closed somewhat with 2007 leading with $6.92 billion to $6.87 billion. More...

Weekend Estimates: Burn After Reading Leads Four Wide Releases

The Coen Brothers claimed top spot at the box office this weekend as Burn After Reading led four wide releases at the top of the chart. The comedy thriller earned a solid $19.4 million, according to Focus' estimate, which put it safely ahead of Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys, which scored an estimated $18.02 million. Righteous Kill also performed decently, with $16.5 million, while The Women was softer with $10.1 million. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of September 12, 2008

September is the month to release films that studios have no real faith in. Since they have no real faith in these projects, it comes as no surprise that the best of the websites, Righteous Kill - Official Site, doesn't really stand out enough to be worthy of the Weekly Website Award. More...

Contest - Back to School Reward

It has been a couple of weeks since school started, and as a reward the first kids film of the season, Igor, opens next weekend and is our target film in this week's competition. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Igor. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of the Igor Novelization, Baby Beethoven on DVD, and a Prize Pack from The Women (Soundtrack, Cosmetic Bag, etc.) which opens tonight. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a copy of the Igor Novelization, as well as Baby Mozart on DVD, and Fist of Legend on DVD. Finally, one additional entrant will be chosen at random to win the Igor Novelization, as well as Unstable Fable - Tortoise vs. Hare on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

New Releases Come Together

There are four wide releases this week, and the odds are that all four will place in the top four on the chart. However, there are some disagreements among analysts on which films have a shot at topping the chart, and which will struggle. But (almost) everyone agrees that the overall box office will grow from last weekend, and most agree it will grow from the same weekend last year. More...

2008 Preview: September

A pretty bland month with no wide release that look likely to surprise, either becoming a potential $100 million hit, or bombing so bad that they fail even to reach $10 million. The latter is a lot more likely, however, with a number of films that have serious obstacles to overcome, and it is very unlikely all of them will avoid bombing. On the other end of the scale, there are no films that have a legitimate shot at $100 million, while The top film of the month could make less than $70 million. More...
