Contest: Check Up

August 21st, 2015

Next weekend is the last weekend in August and it isn't hard to tell looking at the releases. There are three wide releases, sort of. War Room is only opening in just over 1,000 theaters, so it likely won't make an impact at the box office. No Escape is opening in just over 3,000 theaters, but it is opening on Wednesday. That leaves We Are Your Friends as 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 We Are Your Friends.

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, comprised of Bottoms Up on DVD and one previously reviewed DVD / Blu-ray. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a second Frankenprize, comprised of Knifed Up on DVD and one previously reviewed DVD / Blu-ray. 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 third Frankenprize, comprised of Father Forgive HIm on DVD and one previously reviewed DVD / Blu-ray. 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
