AGEBOC IX – Week Eighteen

Standard

Predict the grosses of the films opening the weekend of September 1st-3rd, 2017

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 on the first question each week earns 2 bonus points.

Deadline is Friday, September 1st at 12:00 pm (EST).  

Note: This is a snoozer of a week with only one wide release (the long-delayed Tulip Fever) that was scheduled at the last minute. AGEBOC 2017 will conclude next weekend with the release of WB’s IT, which has the potential to topple some box office records.

    1. What will Tulip Fever earn this weekend?
    2. Will this weekend’s top twelve grossing films earn LESS than the top twelve grossing films May 8th-10th, 1992 adjusted ($47,352,400)?
    3. What % will Birth of The Dragon fall this weekend (4 points for closest guess, 2 points for second closest)
    4. Here’s a challenging one: what will Marvel’s Inhumans, a cheap-looking ABC television pilot which is (for some reason) premiering on IMAX screens earn this weekend? It will be splitting showtimes with other IMAX movies at most theaters. (4 points for closest guess, 2 points for second closest)
    5. Rank or discuss your favorite (or least favorite) films of the Summer. (1 point)

Current rankings:
Jackrabbit Slim – 82
Juan – 61
James – 57
Marco – 39
Joe – 33
Filmman – 12
Rob – 8

  1. 1. 800K
    2. Less
    3. 66%
    4. 199K
    5. Tough one–I’ll give it to Baby Driver. But I liked Wonder Woman a lot. I stayed away from the movies that were supposed to be bad. It seems like Valerian was the worst.

  2. 1) 900k
    2) No
    3) 65%
    4) 500k
    5) I really dug Spider-Man: Homecoming. Baby Driver was good, but that third act was too problematic for me to love it. I don’t think I’d ever watch Okja again. While I hate to go into “TV is where it’s at!” mode: Twin Peaks was my real Summer blockbuster.

  3. Looks like Question 2 will be a “no”, but just barely (by 3-4 million). It’s still the worst Labor Day weekend since 1993, unadjusted.

  4. The studio is not releasing actuals for Inhumans. No idea why, probably to avoid embarrassment.

    So do we go with the estimate (1.5m) or scrub the question entirely? I’ll leave it up to you guys.

  5. I agree.

    1) What will Tulip Fever earn this weekend? James +4, Slim +2
    2) Will this weekend’s top twelve grossing films earn LESS OR MORE than the top twelve grossing films May 8th-10th, 1992 adjusted ($47,352,400): MORE, but just barely. James +1
    3) Birth of the Dragon fell 35%: James +4, Slim +2 (although neither of us were even close)
    4) Actuals for Inhumans were not released: no points awarded
    5) Rank or discuss your favorite (or least favorite) films of the Summer. Slim +1, Marco +1, James +1
