    any comparison with last year’s takings? Is the movie industry dying like so many pundits reckon. How’s HD-DVD and Blu-Ray impacting on the movie going experience in your opinion?

    The box-office is actually doing a bit stronger this year compared to last.

    This frame last year (counting the President’s Day holiday, so 2/17/2006-2/20/2006), the top 10 movies grossed $128.14, with the top earner being Eight Below with $24.97M.

    Not counting the President’s Day holiday, through three days (2/16/2007-2/18/2007) the top 10 movies this past weekend grossed $137.80M, with Ghost Rider ahead with $44.5M.

    Add in the takes from Monday, and the box office will be well up over the same time frame last season.

    I personally don’t think penetration of any of the High Definition video formats are high enough quite yet to make any noticeable impact.

    Studios will make use of both mediums to make a profit. They will be ramping up Direct-to-DVD productions over the coming years. Check out this article from Video Business for some specifics on that aspect.

    I’ll put up the top 10 studio estimates in about a half hour.
