Happy Two Year Anniversary DVDlaunch, 600
This past Sunday,
DVDlaunch celebrated two years worth of DVD reviewing, movie
talk and a lot of crazy nonsense. It's really hard to
believe how fast these past two years have gone. It doesn't
even feel like two years since I started this site. From our
humble beginnings to what this site has become, I'd once
again like to thank the great reviewing staff, the studios
for their support and you the readers, all for extending
your support and making this site what it is right now. I
could go on and on with kind words and thank yous... but I
don't want to get too sitcom, or sound like I'm repeating
what I said last
looking at that, I sorta just did that). Well, read what I
said last year... I still feel the same way more or less.
To tie in with two
years on the job, this site now supports six hundred DVD
reviews. Yes, 600 DVD reviews (and plenty more on the way
this year). From film classics to your latest
direct-to-video schlock, it's all here and this year we'll
keep on bringing you the latest, greatest and perhaps
crappiest and eclectic titles out there.
To wrap up this
simple two year anniversary message, it's time to fill this
box with what goes here every week. That's right, your
weekly box office report. So, it's sad to say, but summer is
now pretty much over (movie wise, at least). The final
weekend for summer tallys, there wasn't much going on over
Labor Day weekend.
In first was
Signs once again, with a nifty 17 million
for the three days. "Signs" is the only film this summer to
be number one during three weekends. It should pass 200
million this week. Close behind it was the summer's biggest
success story, My Big Fat Greek
still riding on all the buzz and theater expansions with
14.8 million. It's interesting to note that "Greek Wedding"
is playing in around half the theaters "Signs" is.
In third place was
XXX with 13.1 million, while
Spy Kids 2:
The Island Of Lost Dreams took in another 8.2 million (while
this will do quite well, it probably won't match the
original's 106 million box office take). Newcomer
only opened to horrendous reviews, but in a fifth place
opening with a dismal 7 million.
Austin Powers In
crossed 200 million with 7 million as well, while
continues to plummet, only taking in 5.5 million this
weekend. Serving Sara also continued it's road to bombing
with 4.3 million, while the excellent The Good
in 3.8 million this weekend. Rounding it all out is
with 3.5 million... it should finally cross 100 million this
And that's it...
enjoy the end of summer DVD fans.
