The podcast is much shorter than normal (and late). I was really sick this past week (I’m still feeling slightly better than miserable). I had originally recorded almost 40 minutes but much of it was nonsensical rambling, coughing, and blowing my nose. I was able to piece together the normal segments of the show (box-office figures and movie releases). I wanted to make sure that I published this podcast in some form so even though it’s small, it’s still pretty good all things considering.

Continue reading for the top five charts from last week’s box office (all data coming from www.the-numbers.com). There’s also a list of all the movies coming out this weekend in theatres and the movies that were released for the home video market this week (with trailers where available).
