AGEBOC ’15 July 3-5

Standard

Jackrabbit Slim pulls way out in front with a 7-pointer.

***HOLIDAY WEEKEND***

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. Sequels are running rampant at the box office. How many original films (non- prequel/sequel/reboot/reimagined franchise/etc…) will be in the top 10 this weekend – LESS THAN 5 or 5 OR MORE?

2. Will Magic Mike XXL earn more this weekend than the first did in its opening weekend 3 years ago ($39,127,170)?

Deadline is Thursday July 2nd 11:59pm blog time

  1. Clearly I should have used “outstrip”. Will XXL outstrip the first Magic Mike? Come on Joe…get your head in the game.

  2. D’oh! Forgot TERMINATOR was opening on Wed. Changing my guess!

    TERMINATOR GENISYS $35.35 million
    1) 5 or more
    2) No

  3. Mike bizarrely bottoming out all of a sudden. Everything else doubling up, but Mike down 1%.

  4. I wonder if the absence of much of Magic Mike’s original cast (co-lead Alex Pettyfer, Cody Horn and Matthew McConaughey) + a marketing campaign that barely touched on the sequel’s plot hurt it.

  5. I’ve seen neither Mikes of Magic, but I recall the ads for the original focusing at least somewhat on a romance subplot. They even used that awful Rihana (not looking up how to spell that) song about finding love in a hopeless place. The ads for this are 100% beefcake. I don’t know why, but some straight men went to see the last one of their own free will – I’m guessing the campaign for this cut down on the appeal for them.

  6. Sorry for the delays!
