See how The Green Hornet and The Dilemma fair in their debut week.
Votes are in for the 2011 MTV Movie Awards and the nominees for this year have been named. Leading the pack with the most nominations is Twilight: Eclipse. I guess that’s very telling of how seriously this awards show can really be taken. But, the fans have spoken and the glittery vampires have some serious mass appeal. Not far behind, though, is Nolan’s Inception picking up 7 nominations (behind Eclipse‘s 8). Meanwhile, Harry Potter, The Social Network and Black Swantrail just behind those two, with all five being the nominees for “Best Movie”.
Back again looking into the top selling and renting movies on DVD and Blu-ray. Today, we look into the week ending April 17th, 2011. With very few big releases for last week, it comes as no surprise that the top 10 is populated with previous releases and hasn’t changed much.
Last week saw the release of Tron: Legacy, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Little Fockers on DVD and Blu-ray. This week, we look to see how the newcomers and others performed in the home media market for the whole of last week.
I’m back for another week taking a look at the DVD sales and rentals market and seeing which movies made an impact last week. This covers the entire week’s sales and rentals for the week ending April 3, 2011. Last week we saw the release of two critically-acclaimed movies: Black Swan and Tangled, as well as a few other more minor releases.
I’m back for another week highlighting the movies hitting DVD and Blu-ray. This week we have a much better week than last. We see the Oscar-winning Black Swan making it’s way to DVD and Blu-ray. Also, we see the hit animated film Tangled being released along with the Ryan Gosling thriller All Good Things. On top of that, to celebrate the release of Scream 4 next month, we get a Blu-ray release of the original Scream Trilogy. You can check the full list through the link.
Fox Home Entertainment have finally announced an official date for Black Swan on DVD and Blu-ray. On March 29, 2011 you’ll be able to join Oscar-winning Natalie Portman for this haunting thriller as Darren Aronofsky’s movie takes you on a descent into madness and obession.

Well the studio estimates are in for the weekend box office and it looks as if Green Hornet has put a sting on all competition. Ok, fine. Corny puns aside, Green Hornet starring Seth Rogen is the clear winner for the weekend, pulling in twice as much as any other movie over the weekend. Bringing in roughly $34 Million, Green Hornet topped the second place contender The Dilemma which brought in $17.4 Million for the weekend.
With the beginning of the year underway, the movie awards season is really kicking off. Friday night (January 14th), the BFCA held the 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. Coming into the ceremony, Black Swan was riding high on an unprecedented 12 nominations. However, at the ceremony, The Social Network and Inception walked away as the real winners.
So, we have finally closed the book on 2010. Now, as we transition into the new year, this is when most people reflect back on the year before. In the movie world, this is also when critics and movie lovers take the time to review the past year. Not to mention, this is awards season. With the Critics’ Choice Awards in just a couple of weeks and the Oscars less than two months ago, suffice to say the red carpet is officially out. Today, I’m going to throw myself into that very ring as we bring you Couch Potato Club’s 2010 Movie Awards.
