Contest - Cracking From the Heat

April 16th, 2007

This Friday Hot Fuzz finally lands on our shores and to celebrate we have four Hot Fuzz related prizes, some distantly related. However, since that film isn't opening truly wide, we will be basing this week's box office prediction contest on Fracture. To win one must simply predict the opening weekend box office of Fracture. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win a Hot Fuzz T-shirt, poster, and soundtrack. Meanwhile, the person who comes the closest to the film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday, without going under, will win a copy of Hot Fuss by The Killers for no other reason than the names are sort of similar and I happen to have an extra copy on CD, as well as 3 Needles on DVD, and if that has a connection to Hot Fuzz I haven't found it. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...
