September 18th, 2012
It's quite a busy week on the home market front, but most of the new releases are TV on DVD. This includes Modern Family: Season Three on DVD or Blu-ray, which is a contender for Pick of the Week. The best limited release of the week is The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on DVD or Blu-ray, while the Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures Blu-ray Box Set is also a contender for Pick of the Week. However, in the end I went with The Cabin in the Woods Blu-ray, which is practically the only first-run release of the week.
July 10th, 2012
Beasts of the Southern Wild remained on top of the per theater chart with an average $19,687 in 19 theaters. It is very close to its first major milestone and it has a lot of room to grow. The Amazing Spider-man opened in second place with an average of $14,360. Two IMAX films bounced into the $10,000 club. Deep Space 3-D and Space Station earned $13,069 and $11,996 respectively.
July 6th, 2012
After several weeks of explosive limited releases, this week seems more subdued. That's not to say there are no limited releases that have a shot at finding an audience, but there's no film that seems likely to open with $40,000, $50,000, or more on the per theater chart. The Do-Deca-Pentathlon has the best chance of being a breakout hit, as it has the best hype. However, while the reviews are good, they didn't live up to the hype, which could hurt it at the box office.
