There are a lot of wide releases coming out next week, but only two of them are opening on the Friday. These two films are This is 40 and Jack Reacher. Both films have roughly the same box office potential, but Jack Reacher should start faster due its genre, and as such, it is the target film in this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, one must simply predict the opening weekend box office number for Jack Reacher.
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 The Princess Bride 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 Patton on Blu-ray.
Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

While summer is the busiest time of year at the box office, it's the weakest time of year on the home market. That said, this week isn't bad with a few high profile releases. Unfortunately for me, I'm still waiting on the screeners for several of these. As far as the best of the best is concerned, there are a few contenders for Pick of the Week, including the pair of Doctor Who releases. But in the end I went with The Illusionist on Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack.
