DVD Releases for March 17th, 2009

March 17th, 2009

This is a smaller list than it should be as there were no fewer than six DVDs on this list where I am supposed to receive a screener, but the screener is late. The next few weeks could be busy, as I attempt to catch up. In the meantime, there are a trio of serious contenders for DVD Pick of the Week, starting with Murnau, a box set that is a must have for silent movie fans, especially those who enjoy F.W.Murnau. Also up for the honor is Degrassi - The Next Generation - Season Seven, which is fast becoming one of the longest running kids shows ever. Finally, Bolt is making its debut on a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack on Sunday, and the movie is fantastic, while the Blu-ray has enough exclusives to be worth the small premium in price. (On a side note, there have been reports that Hounddog's home market debut was pushed back to this week, but that appears not to be the case. It could have been pulled from the schedule temporarily, or it might have been canceled entirely.) More...

2007 Preview: September

September 1st, 2007

After a record-breaking summer, we come to the worst month of the year. There are a few films that look promising, but for the most part the month is filled with projects that should probably never been given the greenlight to begin with. September is a dumping ground for failed projects, and like most similar times of the year, it is crowded with 20 movies that at least have a shot at opening or expanding wide over a period of just four weeks. Five new releases a week is far too many, even if they were all high quality at least half will fail just due to the competition. More...

International Details - Sun Shines during Sophomore Stint

April 22nd, 2007

Sunshine climbed into sixth place with $5.20 million on 1866 screens in 30 markets for a total of $10.20 million. However, while it nearly doubled last week's opening, this was entirely due to the film's expansion. Its biggest market of the weekend was France where it placed fourth with $1.36 million on 339 screens while it placed eighth in its debut in Australia with just $611,000 on 161 screens. On the other hand, the film only managed $508,000 on 192 screens during its debut in Japan and while likely see a sharp drop-off next weekend given its weak per screen average. Meanwhile in the U.K. the film suffered the worst week-to-week drop-off in the top ten down 57% to $879,000 on 409 screens over the weekend and a total of $4.45 million in total. More...

International Details - Charlotte's Sticky Situation

February 18th, 2007

Charlotte's Web's return to the international charts was a successful one as it just missed the top five with $6.37 million on 2192 screens in 40 markets. However, its international tally of $32.57 is still a terrible result given the film's production budget, which has been estimated to be north of $100 million. The film has one strong opening this weekend as it earned second place in the U.K. with $3.69 million on 489 screens. On the other hand, the film flopped in France missing the top ten with $762,000 on 347 screens and that was for the full week. It did little better in South Korea with $872,000 on 150 screens over the weekend and $969,000 in total while scoring $218,000 on 54 screens over the weekend in Belgium and $271,000 in total.
