It's a bit of a madhouse in terms of DVD and Blu-ray releases this week: Amazon.com has more than 400 listed. That said, a lot of them are catalogue titles that would barely warrant a mention during a slow week. The most intriguing first run release is Sucker Punch on Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy Combo Pack, but while I think it's worth picking up, it's appeal is limited enough that it is not worthy of the Pick of the Week honors. Fortunately, one of the catalogue titles is clearly Pick of the Week material. In fact, Lord of the Rings Trilogy: Extended Edition - Blu-ray is one of the most anticipated releases in the history of Blu-ray.

Cave of Forgotten Dreams had the best per theater average for any Werner Herzog film with an average of $27,820. The 3-D ticket prices helped, but so did the reviews. The overall number one film, Fast Five, was in second place on the per theater chart with an average of $23,655, which is a stunning result. The only other film to reach the $10,000 mark was 13 Assassins with an average of $11,464 in four theaters.

With summer blockbusters coming, the smaller limited releases will be overshadowed. But that doesn't mean there are no films worth checking out, or that they have no potential to find an audience. Both Cave of Forgotten Dreams and 13 Assassins are earning stunning reviews and both have potential to find an audience. On the other hand, it's never easy to thrive in limited release and expanding significantly is hard at the best of times.
