AGEBOC ’13 *FINALE* August 30 – September 1

Standard

AGEBOC 2013

Predict the #1 film of the weekend.

The one who predicts closest to the total Friday to Sunday gross for the #1 film wins 4 points. Runner-up gains 2 points. Predicting within half a million earns 2 extra points.

Bonus questions:

1. Will Closed Circuit’s opening weekend gross be more than Short Circuit’s (unadjusted $5,346,808 in 1986)?

2. Separated by 22 years and 52 RottenTomatoes percentage points, Alec Baldwin’s The Getaway & Steve McQueen’s The Getaway are pretty far apart. Another 19 years later I wonder if Ethan Hawke’s Getaway can bridge the gap. Will Getaway land between 33% and 85% on the Tomatometer by the end of Sunday?

Deadline is Thursday, August 29 11:59 pm (blog time)

  1. Please privately send me your guesses for the final week. You can DM me on twitter @joewebb1, or you can PM me on Facebook, or send me an e-mail (joewebb1ATgmail).

    Bonus #1 includes Fri-Sun totals only. A ‘yes’ answer for Bonus #2 does not include the endpoints (33 & 85), but a ‘no’ answer does.

  2. I got it Juan…Thank you. Here they are in the order they were received:

    Jackrabbit Slim
    One direction, 22 million
    1. No
    2. Yes

    Rob Hunter
    THE BUTLER DID IT $10.1 million
    1) No
    2) No

    Joe Webb
    1D – $18m,
    1. Yes,
    2. Yes

    Juan
    One Direction – $20 million
    1. No
    2. No

  3. Well that gamble didn’t pay off… and now the question becomes can/will Slim earn six and a half points to snatch a victory? The suspense!

  4. Estimates are far enough away from the guesses that I can score it. In a nutshell – Rob wins the season!

    Jackrabbit Slim
    One direction, 22 million
    1. No +0.5
    2. Yes

    Rob Hunter
    THE BUTLER DID IT $10.1 million
    1) No +0.5
    2) No +0.5

    Joe Webb
    1D – $18m, +4
    1. Yes,
    2. Yes

    Juan
    One Direction – $20 million +2
    1. No +0.5
    2. No +0.5

  5. On the one hand I feel terrible for taking victory from an Elsewherian, but on the other my AGEBOC championship in 2010 feels so long ago now that it was really about time I secured another win.

    Hooray! And a sincere thanks once again to all of you for letting me play here too.

  6. Congratulations, Rob! While we’re waiting for the final totals, I’ve got to imagine that you shattered pretty much every AGEBOC record with your performance this year.

    Looking forward to your inevitable cratering in the next contest!
