You might be wondering, “Wait a minute. Didn’t this Blu-ray come out nearly a month ago?” Yes. House: Two Stories was released on April 11th and the studio sent a screener to me more than two weeks in advance. Normally, this is plenty of time to get the review done on time. Unfortunately, it got stuck at the border for a month, so the review is late. Was it worth the wait?

Top-grossing actors and actresses in leading roles
Over the past two or so years, we've been working on one of the biggest projects we've ever undertaken: building out our database of acting and technical credits to include complete information on every acting role and significant technical credit for movies for which we have box office information. While work on this vast task continues (and will, of course, continue as long as films are being made), we have enough coverage of the industry now to start doing some serious analysis. Over the next month or two, I'll be looking at some of the things we've found and we'll be rolling out new features at The Numbers that take advantage of the dataset. This week, I'll look into how we are categorizing acting roles, and discuss the first charts in our new People Records section.
