AGEBOC ’15 June 12-14

Standard

Sorry for the delay…I’m sulking since James dropped me to 3rd place

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. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl opens in limited release this weekend and those usually get higher-than-normal per-theater averages. Will its per-theater average be MORE or LESS than DOUBLE last year’s teen cancer (not to make light of a serious illness) drama The Fault In Our Stars?  ($15,128 average, so $30,256 is the number to beat)

2. Will Jurassic World have the highest-grossing opening weekend of the franchise (currently The Lost World with $72,132,785) – YES or NO?

Deadline is Thursday June 11th 11:59pm blog time

  1. My original bonus had something to do with the over/under on Chris Pratt saying “Hold on to your butts” but I decided to go in the box office direction…
    And welcome back Nick!

    Jurassic World – $114.411m
    1. Less
    2. Yes

  2. Looks like Nick comes through with a win in his first week and Slim will be 2nd. Could go north of $160m for the weekend. I wonder if this bodes well for The Good Dinosaur? (haha)

  3. So, basically Jurassic World took its low-end projections and doubled them. This weekend it will have made more than Jurassic Park III did in its entire run, non-adjusted.

  4. Pretty phenomenal. I don’t have the AGEBOC stats with me, but I don’t know that we’ve had someone correctly guess the #1 film but be off by $70m+ and still grab 1st place.
    Congrats Nick!

  5. Saw it. It’s one of the dumbest movies I have seen in ages.

    I was still slightly entertained at times, helps if you can let go of critical thinking, but it’s mostly fun for being one of the most openly money-grubbing greed blockbusters made in a long time. D+

  6. I don’t have the AGEBOC stats with me, but I don’t know that we’ve had someone correctly guess the #1 film but be off by $70m+ and still grab 1st place.

    Every year there seems to be one picture that we dramatically underestimate, but this is probably the worst we’ve ever done collectively.

  7. JW is approaching $210m at ludicrous speed. Actuals are unnecessary for this week
