Contest: Starved of Attention

January 23rd, 2014

Next weekend is the last weekend of January / first weekend of February and there are two films that are opening wide: That Awkward Moment and Labor Day. Unfortunately, neither of them are expected to be big hits and it is possible neither of other will open with more than $10 million. That said, we still have to pick a target film for this week's box office prediction contest, and I'm not 100% sure Labor Day will open 100% wide, so let's go with That Awkward Moment as the target film for this week's box office prediction contest. In order to win, simply predict the opening weekend box office figure for That Awkward Moment. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the film's opening 3-day weekend box office (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win the a copy of The Starving Games on DVD. 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 The Starving Games on DVD. Entries must be received by 10 a.m., Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay! More...

Nebraska poster

There are not a lot of limited releases on this week's list, but there are a few that are intriguing. Nebraska has the best reviews and an excellent pedigree. Dear Mr. Watterson is a good choice for fans of Calvin and Hobbes. While Faust is earning good enough reviews to be worth checking out, even if it will be overshadowed by some of the Oscar contenders out there. More...

Best Man Down poster

There are quite a few limited releases on this week's list, including several that have earned more pre-release buzz that most limited releases earn. However, many of these films' reviews are good, but not great. The Book Thief is one such film, but it could still find an audience in limited release, although its plans to expand wide are very unlikely to happen. How I Live Now and Great Expectations are in similar positions. More...
