AGEBOC ’14 June 20-22

Standard

Jackrabbit Slim crushes it again whilst traversing the country!

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. Jersey Boys is still enjoying a phenomenal run on Broadway and in the last 52 weeks it has grossed $41,655,212 (according to Playbill Vault). Will its opening weekend in movie theaters gross more or less than the stage play has in the past year?

2. I honestly didn’t remember there was a first one, but will Think Like A Man Too gross more or less in its opening weekend than the predecessor did ($33,636,303)?

Deadline is Thursday June 19 11:59pm (blog time)

  1. It’s not just this weekend – the entire Summer has these weird breaks with no blockbusters. I think I mentioned earlier that there are essentially no studio films I plan on seeing theatrically between now and the Fall.

  2. I really want to think Jersey Boys will break out, but that would be kinda absurd, no?

    Great twist on the bonus questions with that first question. Well done.
    That’s some gross for a Broadway show. I had no idea they made that much.

  3. Huh. I would’ve thought the audience would be tracking in their 50’s & 60’s. (ha. ha. ha.)
    And thanks filmman. According to that website the Broadway showings alone have grossed $460m+ in its lifetime thus far.

  4. I really don’t understand adaptating a successful Broadway musical by stripping most of the music out of it.

    Clint’s people are on PR overdrive. The Deadline Hollywood piece on tracking today basically made it sound like Clint had already forgotten about the film and was far more focused on American Sniper.

  5. Weekly Summary

  6. Looks like Juan’s got this one, as TLAM2 is estimated at 30 million. 22 Jump Street could end up winning the week, though, and I forget what we do when no one gets the number film.

  7. Juan to grow on!
