June 24th, 2006

DVD Releases for June 13, 2006

June 12th, 2006

It's another busy week both in terms of quantity and especially quality with half-a-dozen films in contention for DVD Pick of the Week. In the end I narrowed it down to The Dead Zone - The Complete Fourth Season, although I will probably end up buying all of them. More...

Close Race on Per Theatre Chart Ends with no Real Winner

May 16th, 2006

No films topped $10,000 on the per theatre charts, but there were three films in a very close race at the top of the list. Stolen led the way with $8,829 in its single theatre, while Giuliani Time earned $8,661, also in just one theatre. Easily the widest release of the three was Sketches of Frank Gehry, which played in a grand total of 2 theatres and pulled in an average of $8,620. More...

International Details - Its Sink of Swim for New Releases

April 16th, 2006

Several films made they international debut this past weekend with even more returning to the charts, but because of the power of Ice Age: The Meltdown, none of them were able to reach the top five, but a few came close. Leading that list is Jean-Philippe; the French film debuted in third place in its native home with $3.34 million on 550 screens. It also opened in two other French-speaking markets but was much weaker earning seventh in Switzerland with $62,000 on 12 screens over the weekend and $68,000 in total while in Belgium it managed just ninth with $131,000 on 29 screens over the weekend and $144,000 in total. Add it up and the film pulled in $3.53 million on 591 screens in 3 markets during its first weekend of release. More...

International Details - Ice Age Freezes out Competition

April 9th, 2006

With Ice Age: The Meltdown dominating the international box office, the rest of the charts were weaker than usual with several films in the top 30 this week that would not have charted last week. Failure to Launch had its best weekend haul on the international scene taking in $4.17 million on 1300 screens in 14 markets for a running tally of $13.61 million. Much of that came from the film's opening in two major markets, the U.K. and Italy. In the former is finished second with $1.88 million on 352 screens while in the latter it managed just fourth with $686,000 on 220 screens. It's best market in total is Germany, despite the fact that it fell out of the top five there; so far the film has pulled in $4.10 million after three weeks there, including $841,000 on 354 screens this weekend.

Solid as a Brick Art House

April 4th, 2006

We have a new leader on the per theatre charts as Brick opened with more than $80,000 in just 2 theatres for a per theatre average of $41,787. This bodes very well for this Friday's planned expansion and the film is nearly guaranteed some measure of mainstream success. That can't be said for the second place movie, Drawing Restraint 9; even though the film earned $18,011 in its lone theatre, it is destined to spend it time on the art house circuit by its very nature. Next up is the overall box office leader, Ice Age: The Meltdown with an average of $17,163; it will be interesting to see if it can repeat in the $10,000 club next weekend. Finally, we have Thank You for Smoking, the only holdover to top $10,000 per theatre. During its third week of release the film more than doubled it theatre count but its per theatre average remained solid at $12,749. More...

Per Theatre Chart addicted to Smoking

March 21st, 2006

Thank You for Smoking was the only film to top the $10,000 per theatre average this weekend. It blew away the competition with just over $260,000 in 5 theatres for an average of $52,585. More...

Fastest earns the Widest Limited Release

February 3rd, 2006

There's a huge selection of limited releases this weekend with nine film's listed below. And that's not counting the nearly half-a-dozen films expanding to take advantage of their Oscar Nods. On a side note, as you can probably tell by how late this story is, I am still sick. Good news, I'm over the worst of it. Bad news, according to the news story I saw, the symptoms should last another one to two weeks. (You know a particular strain is bad when they do a story about it on the local news.) More...

Movie Website Updates for January 27 - February 2

February 2nd, 2006

During the past week promotional websites for several movies were launched and some older ones added additional content. It was another slow week with nothing really grabbing my attention and nothing award-winning, (although there are a couple of sites that show promise). Hopefully some of the summer blockbusters will start launching flash sites so this slump can end. More...

Not Quite Like Heaven

December 18th, 2005

Just Like Heaven dipped at the box office falling out of the top five with $4.53 million on 1609 screens in 30 markets over the weekend for an early total of $18.04 million internationally.

International Details: Flightplan has Bumpy Landing

December 11th, 2005

Flightplan fell out of the top five with $5.13 million on 2,430 screens in 38 markets for a total of $94.65 million on the international scene. It did fall from second to sixth on this week's charts, but it should still reach $100 million by this time next week. Its best market of the weekend was the U.K. where it remained in second place with $2.14 million on 416 screens for a two-week total of $6.59 million. More...

Quartet Serenade Oscar

December 9th, 2005

Oscar is clearly the word of the day as four of the seven limited releases on this week's list are obvious Oscar bait. It is unlikely that all will be winners, but all could earn at least one nomination and more than a dozen in total. More...

Her Shoes Fall out of Fashion

December 4th, 2005

Here's this week's round-up of international box office numbers.

In Her Shoes fell out of the top five this week with $3.95 million on 2,050 screens in 23 markets for a $30.60 million international box office. The film held up amazingly well in Spain, dropping just 8% to $810,000 on 290 screens, but it wasn't as fortunate in France where it lost more than half its opening, earning $400,000 on 293 screens, falling out of the top ten in the process. It suffered a similar fate during its third weekend in the U.K. where it was down 55% to $736,000 on 268 screens, but the film already has $7.06 million there, which is better than its domestic run if you take into account the relative sizes of the two markets. More...

Zorro Leaves its Mark

November 27th, 2005

The Legend of Zorro fell from second to sixth this week and because of that its quest from $100 million internationally took a serious hit. Over the weekend the film pulled in $4.20 million on 4062 screens in 62 markets for a running tally of $80.73 million. In France the film fell 57% to $1.01 million over the weekend and $14.80 million during its four-week run while it had a similar drop-off in Spain where it was down 56% to $475,000 over the weekend and $9.10 million in total. The box office was less kind in Russia, (down 68% to $136,000); Germany, (down 70% to $232,000) and the U.K., (down 83% to $120,000). More...

Corpse Bridesmaid

November 20th, 2005

More...

Chicken's Little Start on the International Scene is Lucrative

November 13th, 2005

Chicken Little started its international run with day-and-date debuts in 9 markets earning $5.54 million on 900 screens, just missing the top five in the process. Its best market was kid-friendly Mexico with $3.1 million on 600 screens, which is about on par with its opening domestically.

Other results include a first place debuts in Russia with $1.1 million on 197 screens and in Taiwan with $463,000 on 18 screens, (including previews). More...

Zorro Steals the Show

Brothers are not so Grimm

Overall the film made $4 million for a $27.8 million runny tally and that places it fourth on this week's charts. While the film struggled domestically, it is doing quite a bit better on the international scene, and could show a profit sometime during its home market run. More...
