The Change-Up 2011 English.[DVD] New Dvd Releases

It was a record-breaking week on Blu-ray as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 made its debut on the home market. That film crushed competition selling 2.71 million units / $60.75 million during its debut, which is even more impressive, as it was released on Friday and not Tuesday. By comparison, Avatar sold 2.55 million units and generated $52.80 million during its debut. (It was also a Friday release, so the comparisons are valid.) Its opening Blu-ray ratio was 49%, which is a little lower than some first run releases have earned. However, I think some of the people who are most likely to buy the films on high definition would either grab the Box Set, or perhaps are waiting for next year's Uber collection. Even without taking into account the box set numbers, the film is instantly in seventh place on the all time chart and, by this time next week, it should be in second place. (It will be a while before Avatar is dethroned). More...DVD Sales: Harry Potter has a Lot of Life on the Home MarketNovember 22nd, 2011

The Change-Up 2011 English.[DVD] new dvd releases

While there were a few new releases on this week's DVD Sale Chart, one of them dominated so thoroughly that the others pale in comparison. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 opened with 2.83 million units sold and $42.22 million in sales. This is about 800,000 more units than Part 1 sold during its first week of release, and it is already in fourth place for the year. And this doesn't take into account the Box Set, which placed 13th with 98,000 units / $4.82 million. More...DVD and Blu-ray Releases for November 8th, 2011November 7th, 2011

It's a rather mixed week on the home market. Granted, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 is coming out this week, but it doesn't make its home market debut till Friday. Also, after the Harry Potter releases, there's a huge drop in quality. Given the issue with the Harry Potter releases, it's best to wait till next year and grab the ultimate editions. I'm not sure there's anything here that rises to the level of Pick of the Week. In the end I went with Captain America: The First Avenger on Blu-ray Combo Pack, even though it didn't come out this week. However, the screener was late and it is the best release on this week's list. More...Weekend Wrap-Up: Box Office gets a Little HelpAugust 16th, 2011

While three of the four wide releases that opened this week missed expectations, the one that beat expectations did so by enough that we can still say the box office was a success pulling in $155 million. That was off by 7% when compared to last weekend, but more importantly it was 8% higher than the same weekend last year. The year-over-year winning streak has hit five weeks, while 2010's lead over 2011 has shrunk to just a hair over $300 million at $7.23 billion to $6.93 billion. Should 2011 continue its recent winning ways, the total box office should reach $10 billion for the year and perhaps show a little growth over 2010 in the end. More...Weekend Wrap-Up: Apes Conquer Box OfficeAugust 8th, 2011

August begins with two wide releases, include one opening in well over 3,000 theaters, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and one that's just below the saturation level, The Change-Up. This time last year, the one-two punch came from The Other Guys and Step Up 3D, which combined to earn just over $51 million. There are some who think Rise of the Planet of the Apes will earn that much by itself. That's a little too bullish for me, but it does suggest 2011 should extend its winning streak over 2010 to four weeks. More...2011 Preview: AugustAugust 1st, 2011 350c69d7ab
