Contest: The Last Straw

September 16th, 2011

Early estimates for next week has all four wide releases opening in 3,000 theaters, plus or minus 100. Obviously the studios have high hopes for these films, but odds are only one or two of them will have any real impact at the box office. Paradoxically, while Moneyball could open in the fewest theaters, it has the best shot at the top of the box office. I certainly doubt any film will top its reviews. Regardless of the accuracy of this early prediction, 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 Moneyball. 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 Straw Dogs on Blu-ray. 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 Dressed to Kill on Blu-ray. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!
