AGEBOC ’14 July 25-27


Juan with the bonus this week! People are zeroing in now.

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 Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Hercules earn more or less in its opening weekend than an adjusted Disney’s Hercules (1997) earned in its first wide release weekend ($37,206,416 adjusted for inflation)?

2. Will Lucy be Director Luc Besson’s highest opening-weekend-grossing (adjusted for inflation) film, yes/no? (Also in 1997, The Fifth Element made $29,535,850 in its first weekend, adjusted)

Deadline is Thursday July 24th 11:59PM (blog time)

  1. re: Hercules – do you ever think there will come a time where Hollywood will finally recognize that Dwayne Johnson is not, and will never be, a draw on his own?

  2. Probably OK to call this right now. There’s a slight chance Juan could get the rare “2-point bonus if within $500k for a movie that finished in the top 3” if estimates adjust down considerably, but I’ll edit that later if it comes through.
