DVD Sales - Why did Tyler Perry Earn Top Spot?

February 25th, 2008

There were eight new releases to reach the top 30 on the sales chart this week, and this includes Why did I get Married? with 842,000 units sold for opening week revenue of $14.78 million. In comparison, it missed the top 10 on the rental charts by quite a margin, which is the sign of a serious Fanboy Effect. More...

DVD Rentals - One, Baby, One

February 25th, 2008

Like on the sales chart, there were eight new releases to chart this week, but not the same eight releases, nor did they finish in the same order. For instance, Gone, Baby, Gone topped the charts with $8.87 million. More...

DVD Releases for February 12, 2008

February 12th, 2008

It is still early in the year, and, once more, most first run releases this week come from the second tier. That is not to say there are no quality releases, but there are no big box office hits. For instance, Gone, Baby, Gone is certainly the best movie on this week's list, and the DVD is certainly worth picking up, as is the Blu-ray to a lesser extent. However, the best of the best and the DVD Pick of the Week is the Warner Brothers Home Entertainment Academy Awards Animation Collection - Winners & Nominees. More...

Claus is Box Office Coal

November 12th, 2007

There was little to cheer over the weekend, as all four of the new releases missed expectations, some by substantial margins. This left the overall box office struggling with $113 million over the weekend, down 16% from last weekend and 11% from the same weekend last year. This means the streak of year-to-year growth ends at one. On the other hand, had the four wide releases mere met expectations, the overall box office would have been within a rounding error of last year. More...

Gangsters are Busy Bees at the Box Office

November 5th, 2007

November got the box office back on track as a record-breaking opening for Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe, (and for that matter, Jerry Seinfeld), helped the overall box office earn $134 million over the weekend. That's 33% higher than the last weekend, but more importantly, it was 4% more than the same weekend last year. That growth doesn't even keep up with the growth in ticket prices, (although it is extremely close), however, it does stop the six-week slid we've been experiencing and hopefully this will mean bigger business over the holidays. More...

Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of November 2, 2007

November 3rd, 2007

Just like at the box office, we have two movie sites in a close battle it out for first place. But in this case it is Bee Movie - Official Site that takes the top prize while the movie will likely have to settle for second place at the box office. More...

First Weekend in November is Buzzing

November 1st, 2007

Thankfully October is done, but it did a lot of damage in four weeks. However, the damage has been done and the fall box office is down just under 1% from last year while ticket sales are down more than 5%. However, this weekend we have two potential $100 million movies and both should be significantly stronger than last year's surprise champ, Borat. More...

2007 Preview: November

November 1st, 2007

After a horrible October, we finally get to November and the start of the holiday season. Just like the summer season doesn't officially begin until Memorial Day, the winter holiday season doesn't officially begin until the Thanksgiving long weekend. However, studios are trying to stretch the lucrative box office season as long as possible and the holiday-like releases start during the first weekend of the month. This means practically every weekend this month, there's at least one potential $100 million movie. There are also a few that might be Oscar contenders, although not as many as I had expected. In fact, so far Award Season has been particularly slow, but at least this means there should be more buzz surrounding the upcoming films as the race is wide open. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 31 - April 7, 2007

April 7th, 2007

It's the Saturday after Good Friday, which explains why this column was delayed one day. But while the Friday was good, this week's sites were mediocre, at least they were compared to high expectations. If this was January, it would be a great list. However, at this point of the year I'm expecting one potential summer blockbuster to have a major website launch each week, and that didn't happen this time. We still had an award-worthy effort with Grindhouse - Official Site. More...

Movie Website Updates for March 24 - March 30, 2007

March 31st, 2007

Awesome. We are finally getting some major updates to the summer blockbuster movies. The ones people are watching to see if they break records. This includes the first half of the massively interactive website for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - Official Site. And while the site isn't done yet, it is still more than enough to win the Weekly Website Award. More...
