Contest: Scary Timing

August 31st, 2012

This weekend is the Labor Day long weekend, which means next week is the first week of the year that it is acceptable to mention Halloween. To celebrate, we have two Halloween DVDs for prizes. As for a target film, there is only one film opening truly wide next weekend, The Words, while The Cold Light of Day is opening in less than 2000 theaters. This makes The Words the clear choice for 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 The Words. 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: Ghouls Fools on DVD. 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 Dora the Explorer: Dora's Halloween Parade on . (That's the French-Language bi-lingual edition.) 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
