Valentine’s Day made or broke the Weekend Box Office Prophet game last week with its huge $56+ million opening. The Prophet was nearly on the money with his V-Day prediction, finished third and beat the average player scores 4-1 (view last round’s results). That means the prizes from last week will roll into this new round.
The top finishers from last weekend including Valentine’s Day, The Wolf Man, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and James Cameron’s Avatar are being joined this week by Martin Scorsese’s period psychological thriller Shutter Island starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley and Michelle Williams. Can Martin and Leo beat out three films last weekend that topped $30 million a-piece?
The object of this game is to guess the final domestic box office dollars in millions for these five films from Friday, February 19 through Sunday, February 21. Your prediction is averaged in with the other players for a cumulative score to compete against the Prophet predictions (view the 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 four prizes:
- Mystic River on Blu-ray Disc
- Walk the Line on Blu-ray Disc
- Halo Legends on Blu-ray Disc
- Universal Soldier Regeneration on DVD
If the Prophet wins then all four prizes will rollover into the next round and be joined by a fourth. Should 100 or more players participate then the top finisher will receive a prize should the Prophet beat the players.
Once you are logged in, the average player scores will update in real time below as new predictions are entered. The entry period will close the evening of Thursday, February 18, with this round’s results being published in the next round’s game page on Tuesday.
