Projections: ‘Priest’ Hopes to Have a Prayer

22 Aug, 2011 By: John Latchem



The week ending Aug. 21 will test the interest in a few moderately strong new titles against the endurance of some hit holdovers such as Rio. Among the new releases is a TV DVD title for a cult hit show, Dexter: The Fifth Season, which should perform very well.

On the rental chart, with most of the major new releases coming from studios with 28-day kiosk embargoes, the top title for the week could be a holdover emerging from an embargo: Fox’s Limitless. Otherwise top new rentals will be Priest and Lionsgate’s historical drama The Conspirator.
