Angelina Jolie ends her two-year acting drought (not including voice work) in Salt while young starlet Selena Gomez hopes to step into her own in Ramona and Beezus, two new films aiming to dethrone Christopher Nolan’s Inception at the box office this upcoming weekend.
In a shortened version of our interactive Weekend Box Office Prophet Game that will only be open for 24 hours, you get to predict what Salt, Ramona and Beezus, as well as Inception, Despicable Me and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will make at the box office from Friday, July 23 through Sunday, July 25. Once your predictions are submitted, they are averaged in with the other players for a cumulative score that competes 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 The Illusionist and Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief on Blu-ray, the former rolling over from last week since the Prophet won. A tie rules in favor of the players.
If the Prophet comes out on top then these two prizes will roll into the next round and be joined by a third. 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, July 22, with this round’s results being published Monday evening when the actual box office numbers are released.
