Contest: Get Some New Possessions

August 24th, 2012

Next week is the last weekend in August, and it really feels like it. There are three wide releases, which is one more than expected at the beginning of the month. (I never thought The Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure would open in 2000 theaters.) Lawless will very likely be the best movie, but it is opening in only 2300 theaters and is opening on Wednesday. This leaves The Possession as the clear choice as 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 Possession. 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 Hunger Games on Blu-ray. 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 Freelancers 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
