It’s baaaack. Our Box Office Prophet Game has returned after a two week hiatus in time to see Paramount dominate the upcoming weekend’s box office business. The studio’s Paranormal Activity 2 only needs to do a fraction of the original’s business to be considered a success, while Jackass 3D has proven to be a locomotive without breaks or seatbelts after its first weekend.
To play this game you’ll pick the box office totals for these two new films along with Clint Eastwood’s latest Hereafter and holdovers Red and The Social Network from Friday, October 22 through Sunday, October 24.
Your predictions will be averaged in with the other players to go up against The Prophet predictions (visible below after your predictions are entered). Should the average player differences between the actual box office gross and predicted grosses beat the Prophet for 3 or more of the 5 films, the top player will win the following awesome collection of prizes:
- Date Night (Blu-ray)
- The Diplomat (Blu-ray)
- NCIS Los Angeles: The Complete First Season (DVD)
- Machine Gun McCain (Blu-ray)
- $5 A Day (Blu-ray)
- Wall Street: Insider Trading Edition (DVD)
- Modern Family: Season One (Blu-ray)
If the Prophet comes out on top then these prizes will roll into the next round and be joined by another. In that scenario the top player finisher will win a consolation DVD.
Once you are successfully logged in, the average player scores will update in real time below as new predictions are entered. The entry period will close at 9pm PST Thursday, October 21, with this round’s results being published sometime Monday in our box office actuals report.
