Another slow week when it comes to first-run releases, the biggest of which is Pirate Radio, which opened in just under 900 theaters and made just over $8 million at the box office. The only other new release of interest is Defendor, which is coming out on DVD in the States and also on Blu-ray in Canada, the latter of which is the Puck of the Week.

Lovely Bones defied critics to open on top of the per theater chart with $38,872 in three theaters.
Up in the Air remained in second place with an average of $33,255 in 72 theaters, while it nearly reached the top ten on the overall chart.
A Single Man opened with more than $200,000 in 9 theaters for an average of $24,148.
Broken Embraces spent its fourth weekend in the $10,000 club with an average of $18,255 in six theaters.
It is starting to expand, so it should start hitting major milestones soon.

Another week, another batch of limited releases. This time of year we normally see a lot of Oscar hopefuls being released; however, half the film's on this week's list have no shot at Awards Season glory, and only one of the Oscar bait movies seems to have fulfilled its potential.

Weekly US Blu-ray Sales
|Date||Rank||Units this Week||% Change||Total Units||Spending this Week||Total Spending||Weeks in Release|
Our DVD and Blu-ray sales estimates are based on weekly retail surveys, which we use to build a weekly market share estimate for each title we are tracking. The market share is converted into a weekly sales estimate based on industry reports on the overall size of the market, including reports published in Home Media Magazine.
For example, if our weekly retail survey estimates that a particular title sold 1% of all units that week, and the industry reports sales of 1,500,000 units in total, we will estimate 15,000 units were sold of that title. The consumer spending estimate is based on the average sales price for the title in the retailers we survey.
We refine our estimates from week to week as more data becomes available. In particular, we adjust weekly sales figures for the quarter once the total market estimates are published by the Digital Entertainment Group. Figures will therefore fluctuate each week, and totals for individual titles can go up or down as we update our estimates.
Because sales figures are estimated based on sampling, they will be more accurate for higher-selling titles.
Full financial estimates for this film, including domestic and international box office, video sales, video rentals, TV and ancillary revenue
are available through our research services. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
