Contest - Box Office Prediction - King-Sized Contest

March 27th, 2006

With the first event movie of the year opening this Friday, we're having a massive, triple-sized contest featuring three prizes! Winners will be selected for three predictions, each associated with a different movie opening this weekend.

The rules are the same: whoever comes closest to predicting each film's opening 3-day weekend (Friday to Sunday), without going over, will win the prize pack associated with that movie. The prizes are a King Kong Prize Pack (T-shirt, Hat and DVD), ATL Prize Pack (Poster, Baseball Jersey, and Tank Top), and Drawing Restraint 9 Prize Pack (Signed Poster and the Soundtrack). To win the ATL prize pack you must predict ATL's opening box office. To win the Drawing Restraint 9 Prize Pack you must predict Drawing Restraint 9's opening box office. All of which makes sense.

However, to win the King Kong Prize Pack, you must predict the opening weekend for Ice Age: The Meltdown. Entries must be received by 10am, Pacific Time on Friday to be eligible, so don't delay!

Two things to remember when making your predictions. First of all, Ice Age: The Meltdown is opening in an estimated 3,800 theatres on Friday; ATL is opening in between 1,500 to 1,700 theatres, while Drawing Restraint 9 is opening in just one theatre in New York City. Make sure you take that into account when you make your prediction. Secondly, winning one part of the contest will not mean you are ineligible to win the others. In fact, if someone wins all three contests, I'll throw in a couple of bonus DVDs from our prize pool.

To enter, send your prediction for the opening weekend grosses, along with your name, address and phone number to
