AGEBOC ’15 May 29-31

Standard

Four weeks in and we have had four different winners. Rob takes the honors this week but it’s still anyone’s game!

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.

Multi-part Bonus Question (half-point for each, total of 2 points possible):

1. One of this weekend’s big releases was the subject of the first Gone Elsewhere Exclusive (back in 2008) to get widespread coverage beyond our little enclave.

a. Which movie is it?

b. What was it known as previously?

c. Who scooped it for us? (either name, or both, is acceptable)

d. Who were the original two (rumored) leads?

Deadline is Thursday May 28th 11:59pm blog time

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

Joe – 9.5

  1. Of course, the big problem with this bonus is that once one person gets it the rest can copy as well. It’s all in good fun, but should I take private guesses for the bonus this week?

  2. SAN ANDREAS $47.4m

    1a – ALOHA
    1b – Untitled Cameron Crowe
    1c – Sasha Stone
    1d – Ben Stiller & Reese Witherspoon

    I may have made one or more of these intentionally incorrect to throw off those hoping to simply copy my answers.

  3. Hmm… Rob flummoxes me by going higher than I was prepared to go. I’ll throw one extra million on top of my original number for good measure.

    San Andreas – $45.6 million

    Aloha
    Untitled Cameron Crowe
    James
    Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon

    “Done right, it could be Crowe’s biggest mainstream hit in 13 years.” – James

    *Juan shakes head*

  4. On another note, should San Andreas fall flat at the box office, Dwayne Johnson will undergo another re-branding. First came The Rock. Then came Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Then came Dwayne Johnson. Next it will be Rock Johnson.

  5. San Andreas 35.5m
    Aloha
    Untitled Cameron Crowe Project
    James and Nick (miss that guy)
    Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon, dodging a big bullet.

  6. No need to wait for actuals as San Andreas is estimated at $53m
