DVD and Blu-ray Releases for December 29th, 2009

December 28th, 2009

The Tuesday after Christmas might seem a strange week to release a DVD or Blu-ray because it's too late to be a Christmas gift. On the other hand, it's perfect for Boxing Week sales. Overall we have a very short list this week, but there are still a few releases of note, including 9, which is bit expensive on Blu-ray, but still Pick of the Week material. Meanwhile, Paranormal Activity is also a Pick of the Week contender, but the screener is late, so I can't say for sure. I blame the Christmas shipping rush for the delay in getting here.

No One to Carry the Per Theater Chart

September 9th, 2009

Not a single film reached the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart this weekend. In fact, there weren't even any films that came close. The best movie overall was The September Issue with an average of just $7,303, which was one fifth of its opening per theater average. Granted it did triple its theater count this past weekend, so a decline in its per theater average was expected, but it also saw its overall box office fall by a third. The best new release of the week was All About Steve, which was only halfway there at $4,994. More...

Carrying On With Limited Releases

September 4th, 2009

Just the two limited releases coming out this week, but they are opening in a combined 104 theaters. One of these films, Amreeka, could expand, but it has a tough road ahead of it. The other film, Carriers, will likely crash and burn. More...

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...
