Contest: Hiding in the Shadows

May 4th, 2012

The only wide release opening next weekend is Dark Shadows, which could be a huge hit, or one of Tim Burton's rare misses. (I'm a little worried it might be a little too strange for mainstream audiences and it could have a Sweeney Todd-like run.) Despite my concerns, it is the target film in this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Dark Shadows. 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 Spongebob Squarepants: Vs. The Big One on DVD, which features Johnny Depp. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a copy of Spongebob Squarepants: Runaway Roadtrip on DVD. 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
