The Other Guys starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg held strong through the weekend en-route to nearly doubling the box office tally of its closest competition, former top spot holder Inception. As a result, The Prophet fell hard in the last round of our Weekend Box Office Prophet Game while the players easily won 4-1 including a perfect prediction for Inception and near-perfect on two others.
Top finisher moviebob, who missed the five eligible films to predict by an average of less than $1 million each, takes home the grand prize.
