In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for The Bourne Legacy. 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 Impostor on Blu-ray. Meanwhile, whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going under, will also win a copy of Dirty Pretty Things on Blu-ray Finally, one other entrant will be chosen regardless of what they predicted, and they will win the last copy of Darkness on Blu-ray.
