Summer time at the box office is amazing. From the first weekend in May until sometime in August, there is usually an average of one $100 million dollar movie released per week. This year will have at least three months in a row with at least one $100 million film. On the home market, on the other hand, summer time is crappy. This year has been particularly tiresome, as the spring wasn't a fun time at the box office. The biggest release this week is Source Code, which was only a midlevel hit. To be fair, it is one of the best-reviewed wide releases of the year. On the other hand, neither the DVD nor the Blu-ray are exactly overloaded with extras.

Summer is starting to come to a close and that makes the box office prediction contest a little more difficult to set up. For instance, next week there are three wide releases, but quite frankly, none of them seem like big box office hits, so which one should be the target film? Cowboys and Aliens is opening the widest, so that's the film we are going with. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Cowboys and Aliens.
Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a copy of Thor: Tales of Asgard on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack.

Thor: Tales of Asgard made its DVD debut just a couple weeks after Thor hit theaters, which was great timing. On the other hand, I had to wait almost two months before the Blu-ray finally arrived on my desk. Was it worth the wait?
