This is the week that Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour makes its debut on DVD and Blu-ray. This movie was a huge hit theatrically, so it will be interesting to see how well it sells on the home market. However, while it is certainly a very good deal, I'm not sure it is a real contender for DVD Pick of the Week. For that we have to look to Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles on either DVD or Blu-ray, but there are also a few other releases worth checking out. There are are plenty of other releases, so much so that we had to split this week's list into two. Look for part I here.

A handful of films crossed the $10,000 mark this past weekend led by The 11th Hour with just over $60,000 in 4 theaters for an average of $15,213. This is an impressive, but well below the opening of An Inconvenient Truth, which averaged more than The 11th Hour made in total. Send a Bullet was second with an estimated $13,000 in one theater. The overall box office leader, Superbad, placed third, averaging $11,212 in just under 3,000 theaters. The King of Kong was the only other film to top $10,000 and the third documentary to reach that milestone this weekend.
It earned just over $50,000 in 5 theaters for an average of $10,299.

There are close to a dozen limited releases on this week's list, many of which are documentaries. A couple of these limited releases could see some widespread success, but that's a different feat of a limited release even under the best of circumstances. And as it is usually the case, the widest releases are not necessarily the ones that have the best shot at escaping their limited release.
