Will The Green Hornet be a bust or the first breakout hit of the year? Sony’s been marketing it heavily of late but the delay from December into January is a ominous sign for this relatively low budget action film starring a comedian.
In this latest round of our Weekend Box Office Prophet Game, you’ll get to predict what The Green Hornet will make its opening weekend from January 14 through January 16. You’ll also predict the opening weekend box office business for the other newcomer, The Dilemma with Kevin James and Vince Vaughn, as well as holdovers True Grit, Little Fockers, and Season of the Witch.
The goal of the game is of course to beat everyone else, as well as for all the player predictions averaged together to beat the Prophet for 3 out of the 5 movies. In the last round, the Prophet won 3-2 by predicting low despite the player average nailing True Grit’s tally exactly.
All three prizes from the last round are still up for grabs this round because the Prophet won. They include Mad Max on Blu-ray, Shaun of the Dead on DVD, and Battlestar Galactica: Razor on Blu-ray. The top player finisher avonbarksdale (missed all 5 films by a mere combined $1.6 million) wins a consolation DVD.
The average player scores will update in real time below as new predictions are entered. This round’s entry period will close at 8pm PST Thursday, January 13. Good luck, hornets.
