Like last week, there's only one new wide release this week, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2. That film should have no trouble topping the box office charts. In fact, it could break the November weekend record and might even start so strong it has the momentum to win three weekends in a row. It is clearly the only choice for the target film in this week's box office prediction contest. However, while the choice for target film is boring, we do have a fun prize, as we are giving away something we rarely get a chance to do: merchandise! To celebrate the release of Friends: Blu-ray Megaset, we have some merchandise from the show to give away. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), regardless if they go over or under, will win a limited Edition Friends prize pack with two oversized cappuccino mugs and a picture frame just like the one on Monica’s door. (See the image above for what they look like.)
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!
