Contest: Reel Steal

September 30th, 2011

October starts next weekend with the release of two films, including Real Steel, which should have no trouble winning the box office, as its main competition is a political drama opening in 1,000 fewer theaters. Because it is the only saturation level release next week, and because it allows me to use a rare double-pun in the title, 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 Real Steel. 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 Living Will on DVD. 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 Season of the Witch 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
