AGEBOC ’14 June 27-29


Juan takes top honors, but Slim extends his lead.

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 Transformers: Age of Extinction earn more or less this weekend than the first Transformers earned before its opening weekend (it curiously opened late on a Monday night and earned $84,903,028 through Thursday)?

2. Will Jersey Boys fall more or less than 50% this weekend compared to last?

Deadline is Thursday June 26 11:59pm (blog time)

***Double (1pt) Bonus: You can qualify for this if your full guess (#1 movie, plus the 2 bonus answers, plus the double bonus) is entered by 12:00pm EDT on Thursday June 26***

Bonus: Will the USA win, lose, or draw vs. Germany in Thursday’s World Cup match?

    I don’t follow [sport] so I’ll guess lose?

  2. Transformers is 100 and 65 minutes?! 165?!

    Transformers: 105 million

    1. More
    2. Less


  3. 2 teams with the highest points advance from each group. In the case of a tie the first tiebreaker is goal differential. When Portugal won, they ended up at 4points and -3 GD and our loss kept us at 4 points and gave us a 0 GD.

    Rob & Marco with the double-bonus!

  4. 41 million Friday…come on, Middle America.

    Best line about this movie I’ve heard: “This is like a really, really, really, really lot of F-150 commercials strung together with action scenes between it.

  5. The IMAX 3D showing on Friday night was packed and the crowd loved it. I’m sure Paramount will be trying to convince Bay to do another.
    The posters say it’s the first film using IMAX 3D cameras and it looks pretty. But man was it long. Could have dropped 45 minutes without losing anything.

  6. You act as if it hasn’t been a fight to the death every week. …I get no respect.

  7. I think Slim got this one again. Man……I think the reason James quit is because Slim broke into the command center and tied James to a chair and took control to get these so right every week.

  8. I’m counting 5 points Slim. Juan sneaks in and steals my 2 points at the last minute as he is wont to do.

  9. I was going to say 100 million but I wanted to adhere to my own moral imperative of never just upping the highest by a million. Hoisted on my own petard.
