Contest: Complete Disaster

May 22nd, 2015

There are two wide releases coming out next week, Aloha and San Andreas. The former will likely earn better reviews, but the latter will likely open faster. Because of this, 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 San Andreas.

Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a Frankenprize. Because San Andreas is a disaster movie, I was going to find another disaster film to feature as part of the prize pack and I found Airplane! Don't Call Me Shirley Edition on DVD, which is the greatest disaster movie ever made. I also own it on Blu-ray, so the DVD is up for grabs. The winner will also get another previously reviewed DVD. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win two previously reviewed DVDs and / or Blu-rays. Finally, we will be choosing an entrant from the group of people who haven't won, or haven't won recently, and they will also win two previously reviewed DVDs and / or Blu-rays. 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
