    Exclamation Get your Predict Box Office Thinking Caps on !!

    I will be giving away an OBSCENE amount of Credits for the movie Avatar in December!!

    So start reading up on everything you can about the film!!



    Remember that scene in Pretty Woman when Edward (Richard Gere) takes Vivian (Julia Roberts) shopping and the fashion boutique manager, Mr. Hollister asks Edward how much money they were planning on spending?!?

    Mr. Hollister: Just how obscene an amount of cash are we talking about here? Profane or really offensive?
    Edward Lewis: Really offensive.

    Well, between now and December, if M-L continues to pay out 10% interest every week, it's gonna be like that:

    A Really Offensive amount of M-L credits will be given away for Avatar!!

    we all know that but how much money do you think it will make on opening weekend (it opens Friday, December 18th so that means 3 days opening weekend plus Thursday night's show) ?

    $100 million? $200 million? MORE?

    you got to be right on the money (range wise) to win a part or all of the obscene amount of credit I am going to give away!!

    I already knew that. What I was getting at was that I am sure it will be really good. Plus I would also say around $100 million.

    At the moment I am thinking it won't make $100 mil on opening weekend, (if I had to guess not I'd say $87 mil opening weekend). Plus we all know how the last movie with a blue person did at the BO
    Don't get me wrong, I am incredibly excited for it (I'll be making a 300 km drive each way to see the 15 min clip), but no one else seems to care about it yet.
    Oh and if the 10% a week thing is still happening (and 17 weeks until release) you should have 50,948,002.60 * 1.10^17 = 257,515,165.22 credits, so if some more people should chip in so we should try to get a total that matches however much Avatar makes at the box office that weekend.

    I care too but it seems the 16 min preview has gotten mixed reviews, mostly negative!!

    hmm.... something to ponder. i agree with Mith that avatar is not going to shatter TDK's opening. come close - sure. but not shatter...

    Only 30,000,000-40,000,000 credits? In 3 weeks you will get more then 10,000,00 interest every week! Much more then 110,000,000 interests until 17.December!

    Come on j7, 100,000,000 is a very nice number for the Avatar Predict Box Office.
