AGEBOC ’14 May 9-11

Standard

We have our first leaderboard! Where’s Juan with the logo?

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. What will the #2 film be?

2. Will The Amazing Spiderman 2 drop more/less than 52% this weekend (compared to last)?

3. Long-term question that we should be able to answer by Monday anyway: Will Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return gross more/less in its entire run than Oz The Great & Powerful did in its first weekend ($79.11m)?

Deadline is Thursday May 8 11:59pm (blog time)

To find out the rules of the game, go to the main thread for AGEBOC 09.

  1. Logos are open to everyone! I’m just giving Juan a hard time.

    And since I say “Age-Bock” in my head, I searched for “aged box” and found that one.

  2. Neighbors – 46M
    1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
    2. More
    3. Lol, not a chance. You could probably change the question to “will it gross Oz’s opening day, total?”

  3. In summary:

    Rob
    SPIDERMAN 2 – $41.5 million
    1) NEIGHBORS
    2) more

    3. Lol, not a chance. You could probably change the question to “will it gross Oz’s opening day, total?” (NOTE: although not technically a valid answer, I’m going to allow it as a “less”)

  4. I was gonna say 50, but then I assume James would have just said ’51’ and gotten 7 points, so…silver lining?

  5. No real need to wait for actuals (though I will fill them in when it happens) James wins the week! What happened to Juan?

  6. Well, Spider-Man should be a lock to be the lowest grossing of the franchise. I’d imagine Sony’s grand plan of multiple spin-offs, etc. is far from certain now.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they Casino Royale this thing by bringing back Raimi to reboot the series after the next one.

  7. Whoah, some serious downward revisions. Doesn’t change our scores, but there were some vast overestimations on the top 2!
