AGEBOC ’15 August 28-30

Standard

This game appears to be running on fumes at the moment. Time to give away more points!

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. Major Action Star of the early aughts Owen Wilson (think Behind Enemy Lines, Shanghai Noon & Knights, I Spy, etc..) finally returns to the genre this week with No Escape. Will it exceed his previous comedy release Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’s paltry $17.1m on opening weekend (FSS only)?

2. Will Zac Efron’s latest effort land closer to his previous opening weekend (Neighbors at $49m) or the one before that (That Awkward Moment at $8.74m)?

The Mario Kart “Bullet Bill” Bonus:

Guess the weekend Box Office total of one or more of the following limited-ish releases:

-Memories of the Sword
-War Room
-Z is for Zachariah
-The Second Mother
-Turbo Kid

Closest guess on each movie gets 1 bonus point. If you are currently in the bottom 3 (Marco, Juan, Nick) take 2 bonus points for being the closest. No extras for being within a certain amount.

Deadline is Thursday August 27th 11:59pm blog time

  1. Bonus Questions:

    Compton – 13.5m

    1. No. The Ernie Hudson-less No Escape shouldn’t even be opening in theaters.

  2. James, with the exception of the overall label & numbering, you did it right. You have weekend box office guesses for each of the films for a shot at up to 5 extra points!

  3. Compton: 15m

    1. No
    2. That Awkward Moment

    -Memories of the Sword – $150k
    -War Room – $4m

    2) Awkward

    Memories – $100k
    War – $2.1m
    Z – $235k
    Second – $10k
    Turbo – $65k

  5. Compton – $11.5m
    1. No
    2. Awkward

    Memories of the Sword – $1.1m
    War Room – $5.8m
    Z is for Zachariah – $6.0m
    The Second Mother – $0.9m
    Turbo Kid – $0.3m

  6. We Are Your Friends had a historically bad opening, the third worst of a wide release since records were kept (1982). One point 8 million, and a $772 per screen average. I’d say Zac Efron is ready for a TV series now.

  7. I think the surprise success of Neighbors means that Efron will have one or two more chances before his chances of being a viable movie star are done.

    But having a BO opening that was less than ‘The Real Cancun’ is going to hurt. I think Efron needs to play roles that are older types than what he’s been playing recently; I think it’s safe to say the audience has moved on from him.

    1 Straight Outta Compton $13,133,560
