  1. Past hour
  2. Fun table I just spent far too long collating: http://forums.boxofficetheory.com/topic/23904-all-time-summer-winter-table/ The all time (from 2012 onwards) stats for top 10 finishes in Summer/Winter Games. The main takeaways: @darkelf is a beast. We should all hope that players like @Olive, @iceroll @laguy03 @Tower @TylerDurden365 @kitik @Filmovie @Fake and a whoever dominated the game in the BOM days, don't all make a glorious return for this summer, if we want to win. Moderators are shit at this game. ( @grim22 is the only moderator that matters in the overall top 10, @Tele Came Back is the only one that doesn't matter in there) Nobody has won twice in the life of the Forums And finally... This isn't shown in the table but: Of the 10 winners of Summer or winter, I believe at least 4 were well outside the top 10 before preseasons kicked in. @Filmovie jumped 45 places to win his summer game.
  3. Bad romance, born this way, Alejandro, last love game. Some people like her what is the big deal. Everyone has a different opinion.
  4. Name ONE song that she has released that doesn't sound like anything else on the radio, "Telephone", "Just Dance" and "Pokerface" (her biggest songs) are songs that completely lack any distinctiveness and the only purpose the serve is to being played nonstop on the radio. She's so desperate for radio hits, its pathetic.
  5. Thought I would put this together as best I could. This thread will show the best players in the Summer/Winter Game. Table will be created using F1 rules (top 10 finishers score points ranging from 25 down to 1) for a total score and position. I only have access to the results of games within these forums, if people know the final scores in other seasons please let me know.

  6. are you involved in a interracial relationship?
  7. Don't leave again, the weather took an uptick as soon as you arrived!
  8. She does not get that media attention anymore. I do not find her music manufactured for radio pop music Beyoncé gets way more media attention than Lady Gaga.
  9. That was Drax for me. Actually the laughs from the whole audience for him seemed to diminish each time.
  10. My hate for Caca and even the hate she receives on media and outside can be attributed to her "monsters". They spend day in and day out constantly shoving her down our throats and perpetuating why she's so wonderful. Its ridiculous and extremely pathetic because at the end of the day her music is mediocre at best. Beyoncé and Rihanna are the ones I personally admire because they do not make manufactured bubble-gum designed-for-radio pop music.
  11. I think the updates from BOM, the numbers, etc. are kind of useless anyway, due to the completely idiotic way they handle exchange rates. Those should be applied at the very least on a weekly basis, instead of recounting the total with the latest exchange rate. I mean, just look at the following data from TFA: http://www.the-numbers.com/movie/Star-Wars-Ep-VII-The-Force-Awakens/United-Kingdom#tab=box-office It left theaters in the UK at the end of May, sitting at $180m, following some rather absurd swings. Then it happened to run in some open-air venues in the summer, which somehow caused its total to lose almost 20m because the Pound happened to be weaker at that time. That just doesn't make any sense.
  12. You know nothing about lady Gaga. Most over audience is over 18 years old. What do you against her.
  13. I don't know about that. FF6 had a 19.6m 3rd weekend, putting it roughly 10m ahead of F8 at the same point in time, yet it only finished with 238m while having summer weekdays. Even if F8 would somehow get a 20m weekend, it would need some excellent drops over the next weeks to catch up to FF6, much less top it by up to 10m. With GotG 2 coming up, I don't really see that happening.
  14. Just to point that this Monday, May 1st, will be holiday in several countries (Labor Day). We could see some Sunday bloated figures and of course we will see a bigger Monday than usual. Just for reference if you analyze numbers and try to extrapolate as if this were a normal weekend. It is not.
  15. Damn, F8 will top the weekend.
  16. Today
  17. Blood bath DHD FRI PM holdovers look low considering its a slow weekend for new releases. I think scores will improve. Can @ChipMunky hang on?

  18. Just straight up threw up green vomit, . Our audience was in hysterics. So simple but so well done. Baby Groot is the cutest thing ever, when he was being mistreated it was really sad. Then when he was being crushed he was crying . Love him.
  19. That F8 number makes more sense compared to their earlier -48% projection.
  20. To be fair, Bahubali is not a bollywood movie. Bollywood refers to the Bombay film industry which makes films in Hindi. The Indian Film industry has many 'woods', Bahubali being a product of the Telugu industry.
  21. There is nothing risky or provocative about Lady Caca, you are giving her too much credit and her core audience consists of highly-impressionable 9-14 year olds who are mentally unstable and they use her music as "therapy". She has ZERO mainstream appeal and her music lacks substance, her fashion sense is questionable and tacky as hell, the only positive attribute about her is her amazing voice. BTW have ya'll heard Katy's latest single "Bon Appetit"? Not a fan of her at all but that track is currently my jam
  22. Do you mean not like that whacko Days of Future Past trailer we got after TASM2?
  23. Regardless being far away, I find this film relatively easier than predict its box office than either Ragnarok or Wonder Woman, for that matter. Basically, how I think it will perform: Previews Thursday: $29m Friday: $52m Saturday: $49 Sunday: $36m Basically, I expect to be frontloaded as all hell coming out of another very mixed response from critics. I have it grossing less on its opening weekend than Ragnarok, beating Catching Fire's record of the month, but still below the Thor and Hulk team up film. The multiplier I don't see it doing it any favors either, due to the mixed response and The Last Jedi, so I'm thinking a better multiplier than BvS, but just slightly: 2.1 to 2.2 multiplier, so around $348m to $365m dom.
  24. This weekend is just falling apart for me again. That's okay, cause as long as I survive I'm sure I'll be able to do better on a weekend where I don't have so many other deadlines, but also on a weekend where people actually give a shit about what's coming out
