Projections: Oscar-Lauded Titles Head to Disc



By : Kelly Burner | Posted: 15 Mar 2010


Several acclaimed new releases came to DVD and Blu-ray Disc for the week ending March 14. Leading the pack with the highest box office gross was Paramount’s Oscar-lauded George Clooney comedy-drama Up in the Air ($83 million). The film earned six Oscar nominations, though it didn’t win any.

Also released March 9 was the Disney comedy Old Dogs ($49 million) starring John Travolta, the follow-up to 2007’s summer blockbuster Wild Hogs, also from Disney and starring Travolta.

Last but not least is Lionsgate’s drama Precious ($47 million), an Oscar-lauded, heartwrenching story about a young woman growing up in Harlem. The movie won two Acadamy Awards at the March 7 ceremony.

Up in the Air should have no problem snagging first place on the top sellers and rentals charts, while Precious should land in second, outperforming Old Dogs.

Also released March 9 was Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s CG-animated Planet 51 ($42.1 million), the latest documentary from Michael Moore, Capitalism: A Love Story ($14 million), and Lionsgate’s The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day ($10 million), the much-anticipated sequel to the 2000 cult classic.
