2018 Summer Movie Contest

Postby Tyler » Thu Apr 19, 2018 2:31 pm

Per BoxOfficeMojo.com: The Summer Season is defined as the first Friday in May through Labor Day Weekend.
Use the following link to pick the 10 movies that open during 5/4 - 9/3 that you feel will make the most money*

TIP: Avengers Infinity War falls OUTSIDE of this window since the release date was changed from May to April.

https://www.movieinsider.com/movies/may/2018

*Clarification from last year. This contest will not end on Labor Day, but rather a few months after. Meaning a movie that opens in September will have its entire run to make money.

Scoring:
Getting number 1 or number 10 dead-on gets you 13 points (each).
10 points for numbers 2-9 dead-on
7 points if you picked only one spot away from where it ended up
5 points if it was two spots away
3 points if your pick is anywhere in the Top 10

I need your picks by the end of the month!

I was going to post scores, but Crazy Rich Asians has potential to go up another 2-3 spots over the next 2 weeks.

No one, but when it moves up it will adjust everyone's scores for the bottom half of the board. For example, I'm currently at a 10pt score for Ocean's 8 but that will change to 7 when CRA moves up

CRA is going to gain another spot this weekend, I don't see it going any higher than that. I'll announce winners next Tuesday.

Congrats Tutts. CRA might move up a spot in the next 2 weeks, but you will be the winner regardless. I would have to check, but 70 might be our highest score to date.

Yep, it is by far (but I got 74 in a work pool once!)

2013 Winner - bbous13 with 50pts
2014 Winner - Huss Buss with 55pts
2015 Winner - Wags83 with 52pts
2016 Winner- bmyoungs with 42pts
2017 Winner - bmyoungs with 61pts
2018 Winner - Tutts with 70pts

Oh man, I forgot about that bi-law.
I believe it says "If the winner does not have 50 or more total posts, the prize shall be given to the last place contestant."
