Contest - O Canada

June 26th, 2008

It's Canada Day on Tuesday so we are having a Canadian themed Weekly Box Office Prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Hancock, which opens on the Wednesday, but we are only interested in the Friday to Sunday number. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a Canada Day prize pack consisting of 2112 by Rush, which coincidentally is how much I weight. (It's actually 211.2 pounds. Although if I can keep up with my diet, I might be able to get down to Moving Pictures by my birthday, perhaps even A Farewell to Kings.) In addition to those three CDs, they will win the greatest Canadian movie of all time, Strange Brew 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 2112, Moving Pictures, and A Farewell to Kings by Rush, as well as Strange Brew on DVD. Finally, whoever comes closest regardless if they went over or under will win a The Wackness prize pack consisting of a T-shirt, CD Soundtrack and signed poster. 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
