Contest: Expect the Unexpected

December 7th, 2012

There's only one wide release coming out next weekend and it is expected to be huge. In fact, it should be the biggest hit of the winter. Yes, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is opening next weekend and if it doesn't earn first place, then box office analysts will throw in their towel and give up hope, because nothing in the industry will make sense anymore. I would argue there's a better chance of the so-called Mayan doomsday prediction coming true than The Hobbit not opening in first place. Hyperbole aside, The Hobbit is the only choice for 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 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. 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 Homeland: Season One 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 American Horror Story: Season One on Blu-ray. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!
