HAGEBOC 2015 – Week Three

Standard

HAGEBOCMUNKS

Marco takes six points for accurately predicting (within 250k) the financial death of Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea at the North American box office.  I get two points for thinking even less of the film’s appeal.

Hunger Games and Krampus fell -40.1% and -50.8%, making the correct answer for both UNDER.

With a long awaited sequel to a beloved trilogy opening: this weekend has the potential to be one of the biggest in box office history.  Good luck, contenders!

Marco – 7
Jackrabbit Slim – 6.5
Joe Webb – 3
James – 2.5
Juan – 1.5
Nick – 1
Rob – 1

  4. It easily could have gone 2-3 million in either direction of 55. I like that we have a true 50-50% split on that one in terms of guesses.

  5. Wow! So you and Marco might have points locked as early as Sunday am and we’ll still have a full day’s gross to go.
