Summer Movie Wager 2019

Postby Tyler » Tue Apr 09, 2019 8:36 am

Correctly guess the top 10 grossing movies of the summer.
Box Office Mojo says "The Summer Season is defined as the first Friday in May through Labor Day Weekend."

Getting number 1 or number 10 dead-on gets you 13 points (each).
The rest of the scoring goes like this:

10 points for numbers 2-9 dead-on
7 points if your pick was 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
The scoring is tabulated so that you get the SINGLE HIGHEST point value for each pick- that is, if you get number ten right, you don’t get 13+3, you only get 13.

2013 Winner - bbous13 with 50pts
2014 Winner - Huss Buss with 55pts
2015 Winner - Wags83 with 52pts

Whoops. Private message me your email address and favorite theater chain. You have tickets coming your way

I needed to make sure you weren't going to bail the forum right after winning the prize

Got it.

Since no one else is probably entering. I can share a some early trends.
DannyFanny is the only one NOT to have Toy Story 4 as #1, he had Spider-Man. 3 of the 6 have Spider-Man as #2. I could see Spider-Man taking #1
3 of the 6 didn't include Dark Phoenix
Everyone had Lion King higher than Aladdin

Someone at work put together a fancy spreadsheet so I could easily track 20+ scores and send updates every week. I'm happy that I could copy/paste the long formulas into a Google Doc. I will update this every Monday.

Updated to include Lion King at #2. Spiderman is also going to take #3 for Aladdin this week.

Hobbs and Shaw opens Thursday, its the last big movie of the summer that has a chance to make it into the top 10.

I'm not trying to not brag, but I think I will have the top 10 movies right...just in the wrong order. I looked back over the previous years (we started in 2013) and this is the first time someone has done that. There were some years where we had like 5 0's each.
