THE DO-DECA-PENTATHLON is the story of two grown brothers who secretly rekindle their fiercely competitive childhood sporting event - a homemade Olympics consisting of 25 events - during a family reunion in order to finally determine the ultimate champion. When the rest of the family is disrupted by their unfinished business, the brothers must choose between their passion for beating the hell out of each other or the greater good of the family.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for September 18th, 2012

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. More...

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.

Limited Releases are a Marathon and not a Sprint

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. More...
