Weekend Box Office Actuals: The Beat Goes On for Inception

Christopher Nolan’s Inception’s third consecutive weekend box office win played a big role in the final results of the latest Weekend Box Office Prophet Game round. The Prophet prediction of $27.8 million was only $300k more than the actual $27.5 million tally ensuring a 3-2 victory over the player averages for the five eligible films (see the final results).

With the win, the prize from that round will roll over into the next round that will kick off tomorrow, August 3, and top player finisher avonbarksdale scores a consolation DVD prize.
