    'Iron Man 2' tops weekend with $128.1M debut (AP)

    Looks like $128.1 million is the final number.

    I'd assume so. It's the total gross so far for the U.S.

    I am not sure if this includes IMAX and Thursday.

    I think when they officially count weekend box office, they don't count Thursday night showings as part of the weekend (Fri, Sat and Sun).


    Reference: http://www.movie-list.com/forum/show...2&postcount=61

    If I go by $128.1; then according to the predictions posted here:

    http://www.movie-list.com/forum/show...6&postcount=33

    the winners are:

    Hardkore $115m
    redbear $115m
    goodasgold $120m
    ClaytonMG $122m

    BUT

    if I assume the $128.1 doesn't include Thursday Night ($7.2 million est.)
    and
    IMAX ($10.2 million est.)

    that would make the gross $145.4 which will give us a different set of winners:

    once again, going by the predictions posted here:

    http://www.movie-list.com/forum/show...6&postcount=33

    goodasgold $120m
    ClaytonMG $122m
    stardragon $135m
    j7wild $139m
    jacques1400 $142m

    I'm not counting myself as a winner; my post was a joke!


    BUT

    if I assume the $128.1 includes Thursday Night but doesn't include

    IMAX ($10.2 million est.)

    that would make the gross $138.3 which will give us yet another different set of winners:

    once again, going by the predictions posted here:

    http://www.movie-list.com/forum/show...6&postcount=33

    Hardkore $115m
    redbear $115m
    goodasgold $120m
    ClaytonMG $122m
    stardragon $135m

    So how do we decide who wins?




    ------------------

    EDIT:


    p.s. after I've posted this reply; I ran into this article:

    http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=2766&p=.htm

    2nd paragraph:

    Iron Man 2's distributor Paramount Pictures estimated its weekend at $133.6 million on Sunday, overshooting the actual gross by $5.5 million due to bullish estimates for Friday and Sunday and an even more bullish projection for Sunday. The sequel's daily pattern ended up being similar to the original's, and it showed on close to 10,000 screens at a record 4,380 theaters. Its gross included 181 IMAX runs, which generated $9.8 million.
    so it seems the winners may very well be:

    Hardkore $115m
    redbear $115m
    goodasgold $120m
    ClaytonMG $122m

    if that's the case, I think

    ClaytonMG should get 1st prize
    goodasgold gets 2nd prize
    Hardkore and redbear split 3rd prize
    and no one gets 4th prize

    Be it as it may, can we actually get real figures or not ?
    The deal was Thursday + Friday + Weekend icluding IMAX, so now it appears that we are looking around for usable, if not mostly speculative numbers, instead of actual earnings.
    Is there a real source or are we just winging it.

    If you go to Boxofficemojo.com, they list the "Domestic Total" as $128,122,480. I am not sure if by total they mean that litterally to include all the money it's made so far though. They also break it down by day and they don't list Thursday as a real day, so I am guessing the midnight showings count toward Friday. I don't know for sure if that would include the IMAX showings. It would make sense if it would since it labels it as the domestic total, suggesting that it's the total of everything. However, I can't find anything that actually says IMAX on there.

    EDIT: Nevermind about the IMAX thing, I just saw what j7 said and it appears that the total does include IMAX on there as well.

    No one.

    I'm using 128.1 million as the final number.

    SO the winners are:

    Hardkore $115m
    redbear $115m
    goodasgold $120m
    ClaytonMG $122m



    ClaytonMG will get 1st prize
    goodasgold gets 2nd prize
    Hardkore and redbear split 3rd prize
    and no one gets 4th prize

    they are your credits; do what you want with them



    but since you were supposed to give them out as the 4th prize and we don't have a 4th prize winner because Hardkore and redbear are tied in 3rd place, I would hang on to it for next time

    giving it to ClaytonMG will not be fair to the other winners either because he will be getting 2 prizes instead of one
