‘Daybreakers’ trailer finishes on top

Vampire pic ends Visible Measures run at No. 1

Vampire pic “Daybreaker’s” bite was deadly enough to claim the No. 1 spot on this week’s Visible Measures online film trailer chart.

In its post-release week, Lionsgate actioner finished with over 1 million views, but only increased a modest 5% — well below the average post-release bump most films receive.

Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” is one to watch as the Johnny Depp starrer debuted at a solid No. 2 on the chart. Adventure pic generated over 873,000 views with seven weeks until release.

“Alice” pushed Sony’s “Legion” down a slot as the action pic picked up 35% more views for a total of over 700,000 with one week until release.

Dimension’s “Youth in Revolt” had a healthy post-release increase of 112% to jump three places into fourth for a final tally of over 537,000 views.

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.

U’s “Leap Year” leaped one spot to ninth place in its post-release week. Comedy increased 77% for a final tally of over 221,000 views.

Lionsgate’s Jackie Chan starrer “The Spy Next Door” made its debut on the chart at No. 10 with over 142,000 views.
