Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe bursts onto the scene this weekend and will attempt the Herculean task of toppling Iron Man 2 from its lofty box office perch. Before we get into this round of the Weekend Box Office Prophet Game, a congratulations goes out to mk342506 for winning the last round (see the round results and leaderboard) and Elektra on Blu-ray after the players tied the Prophet 2-2-1.
Joining Robin Hood and Iron Man 2 this weekend are a pair of chick flicks with zero chance of finishing in the top two: Just Wright with Queen Latifah and Common, and Letters to Juliet with Amanda Seyfried.
The game’s objective is to guess the final domestic box office dollars in millions for these five films from Friday, May 14 through Sunday, May 17. Your prediction is averaged in with the other players for a cumulative score to compete against the Prophet predictions.
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 Mel Brooks’ High Anxiety on Blu-ray Disc. A tie goes in favor of the players.
If the Prophet wins then this prize will rollover into the next round and be joined by another. We will still award a small prize to the top place finisher should that happen.
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 at 9pm PST Thursday, May 13, with this round’s results being published in the next round’s game page next Tuesday or Wednesday.
