Sony’s remake of The Karate Kid starring Will Smith’s son, Jaden, and Jackie Chan is aiming high at the box office this weekend. Fox’s The A-Team, bolstered by Liam Neeson, Sharlto Copley and Bradley Cooper, also hopes to ride a wave of nostalgia to box office success. A trip back to the 80’s might be just what Hollywood needs to break a now two-week ticket sales slump.
Both these newcomers will be joined by holdovers Shrek Forever After, Get Him to the Greek and Killers in our weekly interactive Weekend Box Office Prophet game. The goal of the game is to predict what these five films will make in millions of dollars from Friday, June 11 through Sunday, June 13. Your prediction is averaged in with the other players for a cumulative score to compete against the Prophet predictions (view the overall leaderboard).
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 films on Blu-ray. A tie rules in favor of the players.
- High Anxiety on Blu-ray
- Robin Hood: Men in Tights on Blu-ray
- The Wolfman on Blu-ray
- Near Dark on Blu-ray
- NEW THIS WEEK: Tetro on Blu-ray
If the Prophet wins, which he has for a month running now, then all five prizes will rollover into the next round and be joined by a sixth. We will still award a small DVD prize to the top place finisher in the event that happens.
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, June 10, with this round’s results being published next week. Good luck.
