Contest - No Half-Measure

July 10th, 2009

For the third time in four weeks we have a Wednesday opening, which complicates things for the Weekly Box Office Prediction Contest. The one wide opening of the week is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and it is the target film for this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. 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 The State - The Complete Series on DVD, as well as the related Reno 911! - Season Six 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 Penn & Teller - Bullshit - Season Six on DVD, as well as the almost totally unrelated Matlock - Season Three on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Warning: While Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens on Wednesday, we are only interested in the Friday to Sunday portion of its box office. Keep that in mind when submitting your prediction.
