    Predict Box Office - December 8-10 contest

    This weekend no box office - J-P has written. I like predicting very much, so I decided to make a contest. The little one with the one prize - 500 000 vpoints for the winner.

    Just predict opening weekend for 3 movies: APOCALYPTO, BLOOD DIAMOND and THE HOLIDAY. You must only choose from those outcomes:

    9 million (and under)
    9.1 - 11 million
    11.1 - 13 million
    13.1 - 15 million
    15.1 - 17 million
    17.1 - 19 million
    19.1 - 21 million
    21 Million (and over)

    for example:

    APOCALYPTO 17.1 - 19
    BLOOD DIAMOND 11.1 - 13
    THE HOLIDAY 9 and under

    If someone predict all 3 movies, then win the prize. If there will more than one winner - prize will be divided between them. Anyway... it's worth to predict, because you don't need to bet and you can't lose your points.

    Contest will be closed tomorrow (friday) at 2 pm polish time (Warsaw). Now it's thursday 4.30 pm. So you have more than 21 hours to decide and predict. I'll be posting here some predictions from many sources. Stay tuned!

    Exclamation

    I think movie goers will be evenly split between Blood Diamond and Holiday.

    Apocalypto is not going to do well because of Mel Gibson's recent personal behaviors!!



    Here's my bets:

    APOCALYPTO 9.1 - 11 million

    BLOOD DIAMOND 17.1 - 19 million

    THE HOLIDAY 21 Million (and over)

    Two new things:

    1. (note that .1 means anything over zero
    ie: 10,000,000 = 10 Million --- 10,000,001 = 10.1 Million)

    2. Prize has been changed:
    - for predicting exact result of 3 movies - 500 000
    - for predicting exact result of 2 movies - 200 000
    - for predicting exact result of 1 movie - 100 000

    still, if there will more than one winner - prize will be divided between them.

    You might be wrong. His personal behavior means nothing for a lot of fans, for example.. me

    I just read the review for Apocalypto:

    it's supposed to be a brutal, gore filled violent movie (with English Subtitles)

    Women getting raped, children getting murdered, Men getting brutally killed...

    I am not watching this!!

    Man! You must understand it. That was Mayan, Toltec and Aztec civilization with all traditions. The most known were religious murders. Almost like in our times...
