Contest: Short Trip

November 27th, 2014

Next weekend is the weekend after Thanksgiving weekend, which is historically one of the two worst weekends of the year to release a new film. (The other is the weekend after Labor Day.) This year, there is only one wide release, The Pyramid, which I'm not 100% sure is opening truly wide. Even so, it is the only real choice for the target film for this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for The Pyramid.

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 The Hundred-Foot Journey on DVD, I think. It might be on Blu-ray. I wasn't able to confirm which format it was and it's Thanksgiving, so they are closed till Monday. I will update the contest then with the format. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a previously reviewed DVD or Blu-ray. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

To enter, send your prediction for the opening weekend gross, along with your name, address and phone number to
