  1. Sorry about not being to come up with better bonus questions, but I have a feeling it’s gonna be a tight race at the top. Just like on AGEBOC!

  2. Dang…missed an extra two by some…random mathematical number under 100,000.

    The Possession: 12 million

    1. Lawless
    2. No

  3. Ugh….I’m nervous about this schizophrenic AGEBOC.
    Lawless, Possession. Lawless, Possession.
    I really feel confident that Lawless, no matter how frigging awesome it looks, is going to tank, and the movie-cum-pap, Possession, is going to enforce what so many already know…that quality never, ever dictates ticket sales.

  4. Well crap, I am now mathematically eliminated from the top prize. Still hoping for a Possession win close-to-but-slightly-above-$14.65m-or-below-$15.5m!

  5. I’m mathematically eliminated from finishing anything but last. Now that guesses are in, all I can accomplish this week is preventing Rob from winning – everyone else picked The Possession.

  6. Brian
    Lawless: $14 million
    1. Possession
    2. No

    Rob
    LAWLESS $13.1 million
    1) Expendables 2
    2) No

    Juan
    The Possession – $17 million
    1. The Expendables 2
    2. No

    Joe Webb
    The Possession – $15m
    1. Lawless
    2. No

    Nick
    The Possession – 14.3 million
    1. Lawless
    2. Yes

    Jackrabbit Slim
    The Possession: 14 milllion
    1. Lawless
    2. No

    filmman
    The Possession: 12 million
    1. Lawless
    2. No

  7. Good luck Brian!

    Nah, I don’t want to do that to you, honestly. Winning the last week, while mired in last place regardless, would just feel like the AGEBOC gods mocking me. I should have picked Oogieloves and retained my dignity.

  8. Since the Possession is overperforming, looks like Juan will win the week, but since Filmman will get both the bonus questions correct, he will hold off the charge, and win the grand prize!

  9. Dang, if I hadn’t missed those two weekends or whatever it was, I could have had a shot. Still – good showing. Gave it a good run. Congrats to filmman.

  10. …now to get those keys back to James without him noticing and reset the computers in the secret lair before I accept my accolades.

  11. In the immortal words of Boss Carl Grissom:
    “That will be all, gentlemen, thank you. Thank you, gentlemen, that will be all.”

  12. 1. The Possession – $17,732,480
    2. Lawless – $10,001,982
