Home Market Releases for February 20th, 2018

February 19th, 2018

The Florida Project

It’s another slow week; however, I prefer to think of it as the calm before the storm, as there are several blockbusters and Oscar contenders coming out over the next few weeks. That’s not to say there are no big hits or Oscar contenders on this week’s list. The Florida Project and Loving Vincent are both up for an Oscar, while there are some massive hits coming out on VOD, like Thor: Ragnarok. As for the Pick of the Week, it was an easy choice: The Florida Project on Blu-ray. More...

Monday Estimates: Black Panther Now Over $200 Million in Three Days

February 19th, 2018

Black Panther

Disney posted updated weekend projections for Black Panther this morning, and if your jaw was dropped already, it’s time to pick it up and drop it again. The film’s box office fell just 9% on Sunday to an estimated $60.096 million, giving it the second-best Sunday in box office history, just fractionally behind The Force Awakens’ $60.553 million. That pushes Panther’s three-day opening weekend to an estimated $201.797 million, making it the fifth film in history to top $200 million on opening weekend.

There are a couple of other telling statistics that reveal just how strongly the film is performing… More...

2017 Awards Season: BAFTA Winners

February 18th, 2018

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

The BAFTAs were handed out on Sunday night, with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri winning the most awards at five. This is not too surprising, as it was technically a British film, despite its setting, and that gave it a leg up on the competition. More...

Analysis: What Gives a Marvel Movie Legs?

February 18th, 2018

Black Panther

Black Panther is currently eating up the charts, with a projected $218 million 4-day opening. The film is tracking for the second- or third-best opening weekend for a Marvel Cinematic Universe film, so its status as a hit is practically confirmed, even if it ends up having the worst multiplier in MCU history. That said, and despite having 17 previous films in the series, the patterns for what gives an MCU film good legs or not is hard to pin down.

Weekend Estimates: Black Panther Powers to $218 Million Long Weekend

February 18th, 2018

Black Panther

Black Panther is riding a waving of positive feedback all the way to record territory this weekend, with Disney projecting a $192 million three-day, and $218 million four-day weekend, as of Sunday morning. That gives the film three outright records right off the bat: biggest weekend in February, biggest three-day Presidents Day weekend, and biggest four-day Presidents Day weekend. In each case, the film is topping the jaw-dropping-at-the-time opening of Deadpool in 2016. More...

Featured Blu-ray Review: Lady and the Tramp: The Signature Collection

February 17th, 2018

Lady and the Tramp

Lady and the Tramp first hit theaters in 1955 and over the years it has earned nearly $100 million at the box office. It has also been released numerous times on the home market, including multiple times on Blu-ray. The newest edition, The Signature Collection Blu-ray Combo Pack, comes out on the 27th of February. However, the screener arrived early and I have nothing else to review this week, so I thought I would get to it early. (It also comes out on Video on Demand this Tuesday). More...

Friday Estimates: Black Panther Crushes Expectations, Headed over $200 million for Weekend

February 17th, 2018

Black Panther

As expected, Black Panther crushed the competition on Friday. However, it beat all but the most enthusiastic predictions to earn $75.81 million for the day. Add in 97% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and an A+ from CinemaScore, and the film should have good legs over the weekend. On the negative side, it is a monster hit thanks in part to the deafening hype, so that’s going to result in shorter legs. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Monster Hits and Animated Flicks

February 16th, 2018

Tehran Taboo

It’s a strange week for limited releases with a wide variety of films to check out. There’s an Oscar nominationed Russian film, Loveless. As well as two Chinese films that are going to be monster hits back home, Detective Chinatown 2 and Monster Hunt 2. And finally, two animated films, Mind Game and Tehran Taboo. More...

Thursday Night Previews: Deadpool is no Match for Black Panther and Wakandan Might

February 16th, 2018

Black Panther

I tried to remain cautious in the face of the overwhelming hype surrounding the release of Black Panther. This could be a mistake. It started its domestic box office run with $25.2 million in previews on Thursday, which crushed the $12.7 million Deadpool earned during the beginning of its record-breaking debut weekend. Not only is this the best previews for a Presidents Day debut, it is the best pre-summer preview, topping The Hunger Games’s $19.7 million. It is also the second best for the MCU, just ahead of Civil War’s $25 million mark, and just behind Age of Ultron’s result of $27.6 million. The film’s 97% positive reviews suggest it will have long legs; however, as we’ve seen time and time again, even Award-worthy reviews are almost never a match for an extreme Fanboy Effect. That said, this result is way above the $20 million I was expecting and a $200 million four-day debut is now more likely than not. More...
