  1. SUMMERTIME IS HERE, HUZZAH! WELCOME TO THE SUPER FUN ALL CONSUMING BEHEMOTH SUMMER GAME 2019! Looking for a fun and frantic way to quench your predictioning thirst until next summer rolls around again? If yes, the summer game is where things be at. The game will run from Friday April 26th until Monday September 9th. So that means that all grosses and predictions will only count up until and including Monday September 9th(This means It: Chapter 2 has 4 days to make the Domestic top 15 list) As for structure, the main focus is on preseason general gross predictions and a sprinkling of bonus questions. Then during the game itself, there will be weekly sets of questions as well as the good old SOTM (Spur of the Moment – You will learn to love these ) questions too. So let’s get to the predictioning: A: DOMESTIC TOP 15 Predict the 15 films you believe will gross the highest over the course of the summer game along with a predicted gross. You may choose any film for this list that gets released during the course of the summer game (If you think that some film listed on BOM for a 22 screen limited release is going to explode to $750M domestic, then go ahead and predict it). Therefore your top 15 predictions should look something like the following: 1) The Emoji Movie 2: Wrath of the Eggplant: 485M 2) The Fantastic Four murder the MCU 46lM 3) Tomorrowland Animated Remake 411M 4) The Rock does Die Hard 325M 5) The Rock does Rambo 232M 6) The Rock does Rocky 177M 7)Chucky vs Woody: How much Woody can a Chucky Doll Chuck? 155M 😎 Rob Schneider is a Carrot! 118M 9) Scarlett Johansson stars in Mandela: The Early Years 115M 10) Jurassic Universe: Raptors on the Moon 112M 11) Pong: The Movie! 109M 12) Half-life 3: The Movie 104M 13) Vanilla Ice: Biopic! 95M 15) Untitled Paramount Event Film 92M POINT SYSTEM: For every film you call correctly in the top 15, in any order, you will get 25,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot, you will get 50,000 points (total). So you must think this out thoroughly. You will also lose 15,000 points for every film in the top 15 that you call incorrectly. So, for example, if you say Avengers will be in the top 15, and it misses the top 15, you will lose 15,000 points (PLUS whatever you miss the gross by). POINT SYSTEM: For every film you call correctly in the top 15, in any order, you will get 25,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot, you will get 50,000 points (total). So you must think this out thoroughly. You will also lose 15,000 points for every film in the top 15 that you call incorrectly. So, for example, if you say Rogue One will be in the top 15, and it misses the top 15, you will lose 15,000 points (PLUS whatever you miss the gross by). If you are able to call the top two positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 50,000 point bonus. If you are able to call the top three positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 100,000 point bonus. If you are able to call the top four positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 150,000 point bonus. If you are able to call the top five positions right, in order, regardless of gross, you will get a 250,000 point bonus. This is not as easy as you might think it is. The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers: B: DOMESTIC TOP 7 WEEKENDS (READ CAREFULLY) NOTE: THIS IS NO LONGER EXCLUSIVELY OPENING WEEKENDS. Due to platform style release schedule of award targeted films before the proper release date, this section will no longer be exclusively opening weekends but rather any weekend in general. This means that if a repeat of the American Sniper situation from Winter 2014 occurs again, the 100 million ‘3rd weekend’ or whenever it was would be that film’s qualifying weekend. A film’s weekend will always be deemed its 3 day Friday to Sunday gross (including Thursday previews). So if a film opens on a Wednesday, only the BOM reported Friday-Sunday 3 day will count as the weekend total. POINT SYSTEM: For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 20,000 points For each film in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 30,000 total) Call top 2 in order and receive 40,000 bonus points Call top 3 in order and receive 80,000 bonus points Call top 4 in order and receive 120,000 bonus points Call top 5 in order and receive 180,000 bonus points Call top 6 in order and receive 240,000 bonus points Call top 7 in order and receive 300,000 bonus points Call 3 of the top 7 correctly (any order) receive 25,000 bonus points Call 4 of the top 7 correctly (any order) receive 50,000 bonus points Call 5 of the top 7 correctly (any order) receive 75,000 bonus points Call 6 of the top 7 (any order) receive 150,000 bonus points Call top 7 (any order) receive 200,000 bonus points For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers: C) TOP 12 WORLDWIDE TOTAL GROSS Predict the top 12 grossing films of the Summer, worldwide. Films are only eligible for this section if they get Domestic Releases. Chinese films that make 800M in China will not be counted for example. POINT SYSTEM: For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 25,000 points For each film in the exact spot you receive 15,000 bonus points (so 40,000 total) Call top 2 in order and receive 50,000 bonus points Call top 3 in order and receive 75,000 bonus points Call top 4 in order and receive 125,000 bonus points Call top 5 in order and receive 200,000 bonus points Call 8 of the top 12 correctly (any order) receive 100,000 bonus points Call 9 of the top 12 (any order) receive 175,000 bonus points Call 10 of the top 12 (any order) receive 250,000 bonus points Call 11 of the top 12 (any order) receive 350,000 bonus points Call top 12 (any order) receive 500,000 bonus points  For every incorrect film lose 15,000 points The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers: D) TOP 5 Weekends! China has been too much of a wildcard the past few years and so it is sadly getting relegated to be part of an international market centric SOTM and a previously regular pre-season SOTM is getting a promotion to here instead! For this section you are listing the 5 weekends over the course of the game that will have the highest combined Box office for the Domestic top 12 movies. POINT SYSTEM: For each correctly predicted weekend, regardless of order you receive 15,000 points For each weekend in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 25,000 total) Call 3 of the top 5 correctly and receive 50,000 bonus points Call 4 of the top 5 correctly and receive 100,000 bonus points Call 5 of the top 5 correctly and receive 150,000 bonus points For every incorrect weekend lose 10,000 points The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers: NOTE: Every top x films list will also have space for a reserve, this reserve will only be used if a film in the main list becomes ineligible for some reason. E: MULTIPLIERS MULTIPLY THE FUN! Predict which 5 Domestic wide releases have the largest multipliers. The multiplier will be determined by the films total gross divided by their opening Fri-Sun (Incl Thurs previews) gross. You must also predict a multiplier for each film. A film will only be eligible for this list if: l It opens before August 24th l Is in more than 1,500 theaters in its first weekend l Makes more than $40M. POINT SYSTEM: Call a film correctly in the top 5: 15,000 points Call a film correctly in the top 5 and in the correct place: 25,000 points (including the above 15) Chosen film does not make $40m – Minus 10,000 points Chosen film does not make top 5 – Minus 10,000 points Chosen film does not make $40m AND does not make top 5 – Minus 25,000 points (total) Call 3 of the top 5 – 40,000 points Call 4 of the top 5 – 80,000 points Call 5 of the top 5 – 150,000 points Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 40,000 points Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 80,000 points Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 150,000 points More scoring details in Spoilers F: TOTAL GROSSES Predict a total gross for each of: Top 15 Domestic, Top 7 OW, Top 12 WW and Top 5 weekends and an average Multiplier for the top 7 multipliers (This does not have to have any mathematical connection to your predictions in parts A-E). This will look something like: Top 15: 3 Billion dollars Top 7 OW 475M Top 12 WW: 8 Trillion Dollars Average Multiplier: 5.75 Top 5 Weekends: 17 dollars POINT SYSTEM: For each prediction if you are: Within 30% of the final total. score 10,000 points Within 20% of the final total. score 20,000 points Within 10% of the final total. score 30,000 points Within 5% of the final total. score 40,000 points Within 2% of the final total. score 60,000 points If all five predictions are within 10% score a bonus 50,000 If all five predictions are within 5% score a bonus 125,000 If all five predictions are within 2% score a bonus 250,000 G: RANDOM FREE QUESTIONS This summer we have three generous risk-free questions to start you off: RFQ1: Predict which film will finish closest to each of the following milestones domestically by the end of the game: A: 100M B: 200M 😄 300M 😧 400M E: 500M RFQ2: Predict which film will finish closest to each of the following milestones Worldwide by the end of the game: A: $1.5B B: $1B 😄 800M 😧 600M E: 400M RFQ3: Predict the highest grossing film released in each month by the end of the game: A: April (What could this possibly be now…) B: May 😄 June D July E: August SCORING Predict the first placed film – 25,000 points Predict the second placed film – 10,000 points Predict all 5 first placed films – 75,000 bonus Predict all 5 first or second placed films – 25,000 bonus This is everything. There will be no big list of preseason questions this summer. Instead, there will be four SOTM (Spur of the Moment) questions. These will appear sporadically over the next month in the Summer Game sub-forum. …ooh and QOTW (Question of the Week, because it is an awesome thing that you all will eventually accept and love dammit!) ***ONE FINAL NOTE*** The official Deadline for this game is Thursday 25th at 11:59pm (or the early hours of Friday morning before any numbers come in). There is no late entry this summer. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!! Make your preseason prediction in the thread linked below:

  3. Not quite an SOTM, but also not quite a preseason and it runs every week. It is one thread. One question per week and a simple Yes/No or Over/Under question. e.g. Pikachu makes $100M in its 5th weekend Over / Under? Players post in this thread their prediction and the thread is locked over the weekend. 1 question per week for every week of the game Correct answer is 20,000 points (Cumulates) Incorrect answer cashes you out at half the points won over the player's current answer streak Cash Out cashes you out at full points won THERE ARE NO PASSES ANYMORE. FAILURE TO ANSWER FOR A WEEK IS AN AUTOMATIC CASHOUT WITH A 20% TAX REMOVED FROM PRIZE POOL (Rounded up to the nearest 1000 points). After cashing out, players are automatically reentered into the next question, but the points per question is reduced as follows: After first reentry - 15,000 points After Second reentry - 10,000 points After Third Reentry - 5,000 points After forth Reentry - 3,000 points is the lowest limit. BONUSES: - 0 Cashouts = 300k - 1 Cashout = 250k - 2 Cashouts = 200k - 3 Cashouts = 150k - 4 or more Cashouts = 0 HOWEVER Incorrect answers modify the bonus as follows :- 0 Incorrect answers = 100% of bonus (as per above) 1 Incorrect answer = 75% of bonus scored 2 Incorrect answers = 50% of bonus scored 3 Incorrect answer = 25% of bonus scored 4 or more Incorrect answers = 0 bonus If you can master the whole summer and complete everything with zero Cashouts AND zero mistakes you get 400k So it's not about the # of correct answers it's all about how many cashouts and how many mistakes you make. (Cashouts = posted cashout for a week, or failing to answer a week.)
  4. Here are 50,000 points!!! Woohoo, hooray we all win!!! You have two choices. Keep your 50,000 points and ignore the rest of this question. Or INVEST!!!! Below are a list of most of the films releasing this year with a 2 costs to buy next to them. The higher number is the cost for full investment. The lower number is the cost for partial investment. If you make a full investment, you will receive 1,000 points for every $5m, the invested film makes (if it makes $9.9999M, you get 1000 points not 2000, no rounding up). If you make a partial investment, you will receive 500 points for every $5m, the invested film makes (if it makes $9.9999M, you get 500 points not 1000, no rounding up). This is it now, I promise You can invest in as many films as you like, but total investment cannot exceed 50,000 points. If it does, the final film listed in your list will be removed and so on until the math is acceptable. You cannot invest in a film twice. There is no abstaining just accept your 50000 points and question your life decisions for not wanting to risk the possibility that Endgame makes $250M total.

  6. Hello everybody, we have decided to welcome you into the world of SOTMs gently with a simple game of International gross extrapolation. (And I’ve tried to make it worth attempting this time around J ) Here are 5 grosses (in USD): 20M 40M 60M 80M 100M Pick a film and international region for each number e.g. 20M: Avengers - China 40M: New Mutants - New Zealand 60M: Rocketman - Portugal 80M: Shaft - China 100M: 47 Metres Down - UK If your film falls within 5% of that target either side: 50,000 Points If your film falls within 10% of that target either side: 40,000 Points If your film falls within 20% of that target either side: 30,000 Points If your film falls within 30% of that target either side: 20,000 Points If your film falls within 40% of that target either side: 10,000 Points If your film falls within 50% of that target either side: 2,000 Points If your film doesn't fall within 50% of that target either side: Minus 20,000 Points If your film fails to be released / reported in the territory of your choice, you score zero for that prediction. All films chosen must be Films that release wide/platform in the USA during the course of the game. So no Chinese film in China or French film in France, and no picking... I dunno if Captain Marvel releases in Malta in May you cannot put it down for 20M. All regions are eligible so long as they are officially tracked either on BOM, or if the International section of the forums has a reliable and accurate thread for that nation's box office. Deadline is Start of Game Abstain is worth 3,000 points Enjoy
  7. Multipliers is fixed I believe. Also the deadline is Thursday night as it turns midnight Friday forum time. But I will be lenient with the preseasons as much as I can if no estimates have come in yet. But it is best to aim for that midnight deadline. I do apologize for the inconsistences, I will go and check what the deadlines are set as for the SOTMs etc

  14. Yeah, I'll reitterate here that all OW and mulitpliers are based on the 3 day total .
  15. So... shall we begin? We have had a grand total of 757 songs chosen from a range of probably about 300 or so different films. We saw different philosophies in voting from list to list as song went very soundtrack heavy, others leaned into actual musical cinema. It is also less than surprising that there was a good support of animated fare too. But what came out on top? It could be anything. ...except phil Collins, it was never going to be Phil Collins. Sorry Phil
  16. The QOTW thread is alive and kicking. Now just need to make the week 1 questions, and all is then gravy.
  17. OK, bear with me... For the running cumulative totals, an incorrect answer cashes the player out for half of what they have earned and they are back to zero and on the lower prize point. For bonuses, an incorrect answer is NOT tallied as a cashout, but as an incorrect answer. Does that make sense. It does in my head, but my head is a dark and scary place that most souls do not understand.
  18. I literally fell asleep for like 12 hours after finishing this. I'll change it now.

  21. 1st place: 495 points (16 votes, 1 first, 6 top 5, 2 top 10) Somewhere over the Rainbow - Wizard of Oz And Dorothy repeats her victory of 2 years ago and in the end, by some margin, There were moments when Disney and Celine looked like they were going to claim the victory, but Over the Rainbow was just too consistent. It scored the most votes with 16, the most top 5 votes, the most top 10 votes, and well, it just won pretty much however you tried to look at things, Congratulations to Dorothy and her adrenaline filled fuel ride with a gun-toting scarecrow who has killed before and maybe will again.
