HAGEBOC 2014 – Week Three!

Standard

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 8.16.47 PM

 

It was a brutal holiday weekend for Hollywood!  Sony was shut down by hackers and saw their financials, passwords and several upcoming films (including the Annie remake) leaked to the internet. Meanwhile, new releases from FOX / Dreamworks and Warner Brothers suffered brutal, franchise-killing openings.

Fortunately this weekend should be a lot less exciting as it’s possibly the most uneventful since we’ve been doing these contests.  As a result: the questions might be a little odd in order to keep things interesting.

Joe Webb – 7 (+4.5)
Marco – 4.5
Jackrabbit Slim – 2.5 (+2)
James – 1 (+.5)
Juan – 0
Rob – 0

HAGEBOC – WEEKEND OF DECEMBER 5TH, 2014:

What will Horrible Bosses 2’s TOTAL GROSS be with weekend actuals?  Closest earns 4 points.  Second closest earns 2 points.  2 bonus points for being within 500k.

BONUS #1

Will Dumb and Dumber To‘s gross be OVER or UNDER 80m with weekend actuals?

BONUS #2

How many views will the official Youtube version of the Terminator: Genisys trailer receive from the time it goes online (likely Wednesday or Thursday of this week) through Monday?  For guidance: the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer received about 40-50 million views in the same timeframe.  Closest to the actual number receives two points.  Second closest receives one point.

Answers are due on Thursday, December 4th by 12:00 pm EST.  Good luck!

  1. What the shit is with this weekend anyway?

    It’s like every studio forgot to schedule something. I wasn’t kidding when I said that it’s probably the least interesting weekend in the (6 or 7?) years we’ve been doing this.

    You’ve got to think it’s a missed opportunity for one or more films that are going to get lost in the deluge of new releases in the next few weeks (Annie, for example).

  2. And wouldn’t Exodus have benefitted from having an extra week of play before The Hobbit opens? Just crazy that no one capitalized on the void.

  3. Scoring:

    Horrible Bosses 2 – 35,986 (James + 4, Slim + 2)
    Dumb and Dumber To – Under 80m (Marco, James, Slim +.5)
    Terminator – Around 15M (Rob +2, Juan +1)
