Pre-HAGEBOC 2012 Thread: ‘Twilight’ Edition!


While HAGEBOC will officially begin next week, someone (Brian?) noted that Twilight opens in a few days.  Since the film is bound to put up some record-breaking numbers, let’s kick off the contest with a quick single-point preliminary round:

1) What will Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 earn the weekend of November 16th-18th? 

What will Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 earn during it’s Midnight showings on Friday, November 16th?  

In an HAGEBOC first – the person closest to the actual total gets their choice of bonus:

1) 1/2 point
2) One extension on a missed deadline, up to 12 hours.
3) The ability to take away 1/2 point from a competitor of their choice at any point in the contest.

Deadline is Thursday at 11:59 PM EST.

  1. Twilight BD P2 – $147.2 million

    Midnight showings – $33.1 million

    Should I be lucky enough to win, I choose #2.

  2. I still can’t understand how you guys think Theron is prettier than her. Uhn.

    Gonna sit this one out. I have no idea.

  3. TBDP2: 150M
    Midnights: 35M

    BTW, you don’t have to chose your bonus now. If you win, you can choose at any point during the course of the contest.

  4. That’s unexpected. I wonder if they’ll separate them out? Not sure what to do from a scoring perspective as you could make the case for awarding to either Rob or Slim.

  5. Actuals:
    Twilight – 141.1M
    Winner – Rob

    Winner – ?

    Lionsgate has lumped the Thursday PM and Friday midnight grosses into a single number, which means that it’s impossible for us to determine the actual answer to the bonus.

    That said: Slim is almost certainly closest to the actual Midnight number and therefore wins. He can choose between 1/2 point, a delayed deadline or taking away 1/2 point from a competitor.

    HOWEVER, I will also award 1/2 point to Rob for being closest to Lionsgate’s reported number.
