  1. the box office theory - forums : Fantasy Box Office Game Yep - thats right the game is returning.... Sign up Sign up (and thanks to WB for agreeing to let to put this in the derby temporarily - till we are back on our feet :P) Welcome to Box Office Theory's very own Fantasy Box Office Game for 2016. The game is played on a very simple premise, you are an investor (ie. studio) who invests money in the production of movies. As such you would get a return on this investment. We base the game on the real life box office using the domestic numbers released on a weekly basis. We also base the budgets on the real life information or the best guess at the budget for said movie. To simplify the game, a budget is set down to develop a movie. This is set at least 1 month in advance prior to release of the film and then investors can choose to "invest" $ into the film prior to release. Investors invest in lots of 10% into films to a maximum of 100% for any investor. To give investors a larger range films typically have 200% total available for investment and blockbusters films will contain more (300%). Once a film is released, investors then receive the earnings for that film which then that money can then in turn be spent on further films. To allow for easier play investors begin with a set amount of dollars (as noted in the rules below). As already noted, all $ are based upon the US Box Office Data (Domestic Box Office). All this information is taken from Box Office Mojo which tracks this information. In particular we utilise the budgets on BOM (budgets are revised at release). This thread is the official sign up thread and i'll be updating overall earnings here also throughout the year. Questions, queries, disputes should happen in here also Happy playing ....... The updated rules are in the 2nd post here and also there is a rules thread in the FBO sub forum. January 2016 Investments Thread is now open for business. Go there invest in the films that are now available.... I'll be posting status updates in this thread also to keep everyone up to date on the game happenings Fantasy Box Office Sub Forum Link
  2. In my opinion: THG = 78 (best) CF = 40 (worst) MJ1 = 63
  3. THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE: "After winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns home to District 12 along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark . After shortly returning home, they must embark on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts, leaving behind their close friends and family. During the tour, Katniss senses that a rebellion is brewing in the districts, but the Capitol is still firmly in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, known as a Quarter Quell." The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is an upcoming 2013 American science-fiction dystopian thriller/action-adventure film based on Suzanne Collins' novel Catching Fire, the second installment in The Hunger Games trilogy and is the sequel to the 2012 film The Hunger Games. The film is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2013.

  4. GOAL: Predict the 3-day weekend gross of films opening every week. DEADLINE: Friday, 4 PM Eastern Time PREDICTIONS: Predicted numbers should have two numerals after the decimal point (i.e. 10.56 M). A prediction without these numerals will be considered whole. (i.e. 10 M = 10.00 M) WEEKEND NUMBERS: Gross is to be approximated as such: 10, 704, 561 M = 10.70 M. SCORING: Gold for the closest predict, Silver for the second closest, Bronze for the third closest. A spot on prediction equals three Golds. Silver and Bronze will still be awarded. RANKING: Ranking is based on Gold medals. Total number of medals is worth noting too. EDITING: Predictions should be quoted if you want to change them. NOTE: Please avoid changing names. Kindly notify me if you'll change. WINNERS: The top three will be announced at the end of the year. Enjoy the game everyone!

  6. A few weeks ago I was arguing a lot with Avengers fans saying that I don't think it's going to do the astronomical numbers that they are expecting, for it to challenge or break the OW record or TDK's OW. Well now that THG is tracking higher than anyone would believe I'm willing to bet that in 2 months time when The Avengers opens, The Hunger Games will have had a bigger OW. My prediction: THG 135m vs The Avengers 120m OW Hunger Games loonies vs. Avengers loonies. Who's in?
