Contest: Give the Wheel a Spin

August 27th, 2015

Next weekend is Labor Day long weekend, which is historically the worst long weekend at the box office all year. This year, only one film, The Transporter Refueled, is opening wide, so at least it has the box office to itself. That should help it open better. It also means it is the only 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 The Transporter Refueled.

Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a TV on DVD release. It could be either The Vampire Diaries: Season Six on Blu-ray or The Originals: Season Two on Blu-ray. I don't know what prize the winner will receive and neither will they, until it is delivered.

Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will win a Frankenprize, comprised of a previously reviewed TV on DVD full-season release. 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 second Frankenprize, comprised of a previously reviewed TV on DVD full-season release. 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 contests@the-numbers.com. The winner will be determined on September 8th, 2015 once we have the official opening weekend results.
