It's another week where first run releases are taking a backseat to limited releases and TV on DVD.
That latter category is especially busy with the Fall season under way.
In fact, it is from that list that we get the DVD Pick of the Week, My Name Is Earl - The Complete First Season - Buy from Amazon, but Hard Candy - Buy from Amazon earns an honorable mention.

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.
