DVD Rentals - Competition Barely Bugs Knocked Up

October 7th, 2007

New releases took the top two spots on the DVD rental chart with Knocked Up taking in $10.11 million during its opening week. More...

DVD Releases for September 25, 2007

September 24th, 2007

The prime window for TV on DVD is closing, and the summer releases are starting to come out, so it is appropriate that the DVD Pick of the Week co-winners are one of each. This includes , Knocked Up - Unrated Collector's Edition and a belated win for Corner Gas - Season 4 - Buy from Amazon.ca. More...

Surfer Overshadows Limited Releases on Per Theater Chart

June 19th, 2007

Only one new release topped $10,000 on the per theater chart this week, and only two films in total were able to do that. That new release was the overall box office leader, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which pulled in an average of $14,663. The only holdover was 12:08 East of Bucharest with $10,108 in its lone theater. More...

Pirates Sail into First Place on Per Theater Chart

May 30th, 2007

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and its record-breaking theater count of 4,362 were able to top the per theater chart this weekend with $26,303. As impressive as that was, both Shrek the Third and Spider-Man 3 opened with better averages. Paprika opened in second place with $17,797, but while that's a great start, its niche market appeal will prevent it from expanding wide. Last week's winner, Once, fell to third with $16,607, but, given the film's expansion, this was an amazing hold. The Golden Door opened with an average of $13,872 in two theaters while Shrek the Third was close behind with $12,713. More...

Brand Rules the Per Theater Chart

May 15th, 2007

Brand Upon the Brain! was the top dog on the per theater chart this week, scoring an impressive $46,412 in its one theater over the weekend and $63,837 since Wednesday. In most cases this would be clear evidence that the film was destined for mainstream success. However, given the nature of the movie, it should have a successful tour of art house theaters in major cities, but it will never play in multiplexes. The second place film was Brooklyn Rules with $41,811 an exclusive engagement ahead of this Friday's opening. Paris, je t'aime remained in third place while its average rose to $20,247. The overall number one film, Spider-man 3, earned an average of $13,680, which was more than the four new wide releases combined. Finally, Waitress just maintained a $10,000 average, earning an average of $10,108 in 65 theaters. There is little doubt the film will earn some measure of mainstream success at this point. More...

Thank Goodness for Organized Crime

May 1st, 2007

Only one film managed to top $10,000 on the per theater chart this weekend, as Triad Election pulled in $10,811 over the weekend and $12,696 since Wednesday, all in one theater. Zoo just missed that mark with $9,920, but only $7,810 of that came over the weekend. More...

Sheep Follow No One on the Per Theater Chart

April 10th, 2007

Killer of Sheep saw its per theater average grow to $15,864 this weekend, which was enough to claim top spot just ahead of Black Book's average of $12,502. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 31 - April 7, 2007

April 7th, 2007

It's the Saturday after Good Friday, which explains why this column was delayed one day. But while the Friday was good, this week's sites were mediocre, at least they were compared to high expectations. If this was January, it would be a great list. However, at this point of the year I'm expecting one potential summer blockbuster to have a major website launch each week, and that didn't happen this time. We still had an award-worthy effort with Grindhouse - Official Site. More...

These Limited Releases are No Hoax

April 6th, 2007

As always, limited releases bring wide variety of films from a Canadian film about a first crush, to a Dutch film about surviving World War II. However, unlike most weeks, this week also has a big release that is almost guaranteed to hit seven figures during its debut. That film, The Hoax, it also opening in more than 200 theaters, which makes it a risky move for the studio. More...

January 20th, 2007

Another slow week, but its been that way for a while. I'm hoping that will change when the summer blockbusters start launching their full sites soon, in fact, Spider-Man 3's Official Site did go live this week, but it is mostly marked coming soon and too soon to give it the award just yet. More...
