On this week’s podcast, I briefly discuss the potential impact The Interview may have on how we will watch new movies. I will have an article on the site later today that goes into greater detail. Also on the podcast are the box office numbers from the holiday weekend and the new releases coming out in theatres and on video.

Continue reading for the top five charts from the 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).

Get well soon, Steve.
