Contest: Once Bitten

August 7th, 2015

There are three wide releases next week, well, two and a half, as Underdogs might not open truly wide. As for the other two, Straight Outta Compton is the heavy favorite over The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Because of this, Straight Outta Compton is the only real choice for the target film for this week's Box Office Prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Straight Outta Compton.

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 Shark Week: Dominating the Deep 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 Fast N' Loud: Speed Demons on DVD. 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 a copy of Very Fairy Princess…and more imaginative tales on DVD. (I couldn't find it on Amazon.com.) 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
