Home Market Numbers: Walt Disney Shorts Come Up a Little Short

September 13th, 2015

Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

A huge number of new releases from August 18th reached the top 30 on the combined DVD and Blu-ray chart for August 23rd. However, none of them could overtake Home, which rose to first place with 216,000 units / $3.89 million for the week, giving it four-week totals of 2.09 million / $38.58 million. It became just the sixth film to sell more than 2 million units during 2015. More...

Home Market Releases for August 18th, 2015

August 18th, 2015

Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

The TV on DVD season is kicking into high gear, but it is still too soon for the summer blockbusters to arrive on the home market. This has led to a number of good releases, but not a lot of great ones. It was a pretty easy race for Pick of the Week with Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection on Blu-ray Combo Pack well ahead of the rest. More...

Per Theater Chart: Tangerine Has Sweet Start

July 14th, 2015


The $10,000 club was busier that it was last week with four films earning a per theater average of more than $10,000. This includes the overall number one film, Minions, which earned an average of $26,905 in over 4,000 theaters. The best limited release was Tangerine with an average $15,171 in four theaters. I thought this might be a little too niche to find a large audience, but perhaps I was wrong. Up next is Baahubali: The Beginning, which was also a surprise hit with an average of $13,559 in 236 theaters. It is very rare for a Bollywood film to do that well. The final film in the $10,000 club was Do I Sound Gay? with $11,000 in its lone theater. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: What Films to see on Our Holiday

July 10th, 2015

What We Did on Our Holiday

Very few movies on this week's list have a real shot at box office success. Stations of the Cross and Tangerine are both earning amazing reviews, but both are niche market releases. Many movies are also earning good reviews, like What We Did on Our Holiday, but are playing on VOD, so they likely won't find audiences in theaters. More...
