  1. Brave: $62 million
    1. Less
    2. Buscando un amigo al final del mundo (I think it rolls of the tongue better in Spanish)

  2. I’m thinking Brave will open closer to the Ratatouille end of the Pixar spectrum. The trailers make it look like a How to Train Your Dragon spin-off and reviews haven’t been that great thus far:

    Brave:
    40M
    1. Less
    2. Seeking a Friend at the End of the World

  3. apparently Nick did not savor my half point as well…

    Didn’t I? Oh, no… Ah, everyone do a security check for their points.

    Sorry, Joe.

  4. This one is going to be interesting.

    Anyone taking bets on what happens at the end of SAFFTEOTW? Does everybody die? Do only some die and some survive? Does the meteor burn up in the atmosphere like in that episode of The Simpsons?

  5. I’ve seen SEEKING A FRIEND, but I’ll never tell what happens in the end… other than to say it’s easily the best part of a good (but inconsistent) movie.

  6. I can’t see spending the money and time on it. Will have to decide whether to hold out for video or visit a movie spoiler website on Monday.

  7. Estimates are saying 70 for Brave, far less than 20 for Abraham, while Seeking is looking at under 5.

  8. Estimates are in, and Brave is at $66.7, so looks like it’s between Joe and filmman.

    ALVH is around $16 million … fail.

    SAFFTEOTW is under $4 million … double fail. Only about $2300 per screen, so it’s safe to say that no one cares about this movie. Congrats to filmman for being the only one who guessed right on that question.

  9. Congratulations and well done, filmman! The winner and the only one that got both bonuses right! Halfway through and he’s trouncing us all at this game.

    1. Brave $66,323,594
    2. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted $19,712,3153.
    3. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter $16,306,974
    7. That’s My Boy $7,630,411
    10. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World $3,822,803

  10. Wow. SAFTEOTW did shockingly bad. Wasn’t that a major release? I mean…3 million is shocking. When a movie with Rourke and Megan Fox opens to like 11,000, alright, that’s them, but wasn’t Carrell in this? Wow.
