Contest: Forecast is Cloudy

October 18th, 2012

Next week there are four films opening wide, but not really. Cloud Atlas is opening in less than 2000 theaters, while Chasing Mavericks is also in the same range. Fun Size's theater count estimate is 2800 theaters, but it is a live action kids movie with a female lead and these rarely do well. Silent Hill: Revolution could open in more than 3000 theaters, but its buzz is pretty weak. While Cloud Atlas could open in the fewest theaters, it still has the loudest buzz and reviews are amazing. I think it will be the biggest hit of the week and as such, 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 Cloud Atlas. 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 Degrassi: Season 11, Part 2 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 also win a copy of Degrassi: Season 11, Part 2 on DVD. And finally, one additional entrant will be chosen and they will win the final copy of a Degrassi: Season 11, Part 2 on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!
