      My guess is The Artist wasn’t on offer to hotels in February. LodgeNet shows premium movies in hotels 60 days prior to their release on DVD and 90 days prior to their release on Netflicks. The Descendants opened in US movie theaters a few weeks before The Artist, so it makes sense it got to hotel rooms first.

    “Pass the Popcorn” is a nifty addition to OvernightNewYork, Terry. I’m glad “The Descendants” topped both lists, and I’m delighted that “Young Adult” and “J. Edgar” also did well. As for “Tower Heist,” no comment!
