AGEBOC ’14 May 2-4

Standard

It’s on!

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. Also, Juan needs to come up with a new logo.

Bonus Questions:

1. Will The Amazing Spiderman 2 gross more/less this weekend than The Winter Soldier did 4 weekends prior ($95-ish million)?

2. Will The Other Woman drop more/less than 55% this weekend (compared to last)?

Deadline is Thursday May 1 11:59pm (blog time)

  1. I finally followed through on my threat to rip off your box office challenge over on my site! Not gonna lie, being reigning AGEBOC champion added to my clout and made the pitch a lot easier.

  2. I will say I sense zero hype at all for Spider-Man this time out. I wouldn’t be shocked if it opened the same or slightly below the last picture, although Sony would almost certainly do some creative reporting to ensure that didn’t happen.

  3. I just looked up Amazing Spiderman and saw that it only grossed $62m when it opened on 4th of July weekend…A guess revision may be in order!

  4. Spidey did 37 million on Friday, heading to a 90 plus weekend, so I should have this in the bag. Don’t know why you guys de-valued it so much.

  5. Forgot to do the summary. Will update this with scores when actuals are released later today.

    UPDATE: Slim *barely* wins (by just over $108k..I should have stuck with my filmrejects guess) and both bonus questions are “LESS”
    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 $91,608,337
    The Other Woman $14,407,264 -41.8%
