DVD Releases for April 11, 2006

April 10th, 2006

It's a slow week for DVD releases, and next week looks even slower. After searching hard for a hidden gem, there's nothing here I would deem a must have, and none rate as a DVD "Pick of the Week." The Newsroom - The Complete Third Season tops this week's list, and even then I'd recommend you go back and buy the First Season. More...

Clown has Kingly Run in South Korea

January 15th, 2006

It also had debuts in Holland with $139,000 on 57 screens over the weekend and $167,000 overall, and in Greece with $116,000 on 24 and Norway with $113,000 on 26.

International Details: Flightplan has Bumpy Landing

December 11th, 2005

Flightplan fell out of the top five with $5.13 million on 2,430 screens in 38 markets for a total of $94.65 million on the international scene.

Her Shoes Fall out of Fashion

December 4th, 2005

Here's this week's round-up of international box office numbers.

In Her Shoes fell out of the top five this week with $3.95 million on 2,050 screens in 23 markets for a $30.60 million international box office. The film held up amazingly well in Spain, dropping just 8% to $810,000 on 290 screens, but it wasn't as fortunate in France where it lost more than half its opening, earning $400,000 on 293 screens, falling out of the top ten in the process. It suffered a similar fate during its third weekend in the U.K. where it was down 55% to $736,000 on 268 screens, but the film already has $7.06 million there, which is better than its domestic run if you take into account the relative sizes of the two markets.

Zorro Leaves its Mark

November 27th, 2005

The Legend of Zorro fell from second to sixth this week and because of that its quest from $100 million internationally took a serious hit.

In France the film fell 57% to $1.01 million over the weekend and $14.80 million during its four-week run while it had a similar drop-off in Spain where it was down 56% to $475,000 over the weekend and $9.10 million in total.

Other results include a first place debuts in Russia with $1.1 million on 197 screens and in Taiwan with $463,000 on 18 screens, (including previews). More...

Zorro Steals the Show

November 6th, 2005

With The Legend of Zorro earning a nearly worldwide release this past weekend, and the imminent release of another juggernaut, there was little room for other releases this weekend on the international scene. More...

Surprise Twist on the International Charts

October 30th, 2005

Oliver Twist opened in two major markets over the weekend, placing second in both France with $2.4 million on 547 screens and Italy with $1.3 million on 301 screens.

Brothers are not so Grimm

October 23rd, 2005

The Brothers Grimm dropped just 35% during its second weekend in France adding $2.1 million to its $5.7 million total there. In Germany, the film performed a nearly the same level falling 36% to $950,000 over the weekend and $2.9 million during its run. Overall the film made $4 million for a $27.8 million runny tally and that places it fourth on this week's charts. While the film struggled domestically, it is doing quite a bit better on the international scene, and could show a profit sometime during its home market run. More...

Internationl Round-up: Company Nine Reaches $14 Million

October 16th, 2005

Company 9 remained in first place in Russia, its home market, down just 13% to $4.3 million for a running total of $14.3 million, which is well ahead of Revenge of the Sith's final box office in the market (which was just shy of $10 million). More...

Violence has its Rewards

September 27th, 2005

As expected, A History of Violence led the per theatre charts this weekend with an average of $36,857 in 14 theatres. Even if the film wasn't going to expand its theatre count, it would still top David Cronenberg's previous film and depending on how well it holds onto its average as it expands, it could become one of his biggest commercial successes. The only other member of the $10,000 club was Oliver Twist, which earned $68,447 in just 5 theatres for an average of $13,689, which is a little below what I was expecting. More...

Corpse Leads Lively Per Theatre Charts

September 20th, 2005

It's safe to say that Award Season is unofficially underway, as there were four films in the $10,000 club with another just behind. Leading the way was the prestige opening of The Corpse Bride, which pulled in almost $400,000 in just 5 theatres for an average of $77,016. Next up was the Oscar hopeful Proof, which made close to $200,000 in 8 theatres for a $24,230 per theatre average. And lastly we have two films with nearly identical per theatre averages, Separate Lies and Everything is Illuminated with averages of $11,171 and $11,134 respectively. More...

Giving the Devil His Due

September 13th, 2005

There was just the single film in the $10,000 club this weekend and it was the overall box office leader, The Exorcism of Emily Rose. The film, which was a surprise hit over the weekend, earned just over $30 million in 2,981 theaters for a $10,082 per theatre average. More...

Race for Oscar Getting Underway

September 9th, 2005

While Award Season hasn't officially started yet, there's at least one film on this week's list that's obviously meant to win awards. There are also a dozen other films of widely varying themes and quality, but at least that means there's something for everyone. More...

Box Office Suffers Labor Day Pains

September 2nd, 2005

For the third weekend in a row we have a contender for worst movie of the year contest. In fact, this weekend there are two such movies. (And next weekend it looks like we'll have another.) Even so, there should be enough moviegoers interested in the other two releases that the weekend could show significant growth, maybe not compared to last weekend, but certainly compared to last year.
