Three weeks from release, Sony romancer “Dear John” moved up one spot with a 77% increase for over 468,000 views Warners’ “Book of Eli” may be lacking buzz going into this weekend’s theatrical release as views increased only 3% for a total of just under 349,000. Fox 2000′s “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” posted an un-Olympic performance as the trailer experienced the largest decrease of 27% for a total of over 326,000 with four weeks until release. Universal’s “The Wolfman” also declined this week, dropping 5% to fall from fifth to eighth for over 309,000 views with four weeks until release.
