  1. Really like this idea, but I hope the presentation gets cleared up. Maybe add the year the record was broken and/or how much money each film made?
  2. Is there a reason we're not having all the weekday threads as just one big thread like we did over the holidays? It makes no sense; during the slow seasons, the daily threads sometimes have 5 pages or less. But yet we have one weekend thread that is usually 25+ pages, even during the slow season. Why keep them separate outside of appealing to tradition?
  3. Let's see how I did. Green text represents my prediction being within 9.9% right (either positively or negatively - hint, there's not that many). Yellow text represents my prediction being within 10-19.9% correct. Red text means that I was more than 20% off on my prediction. The percentages are based on (My prediction) divided by (What the film actually grossed), so as to measure my own ability to predict the box office. 1. Avengers: Endgame - 1925 (-31.2%)/625 (-27.2%)/1300 (-33.0%) - Way off on this, but then again, who wasn't. OS alone outgrossed what I thought would be its WW gross 2. The Lion King - 1400 (-15.5%)/600 (+10.4%)/800 (-28.1%) - I was somewhat close on the domestic front, but the OS over performance was hard to see coming 3. Frozen 2 - 1300 (-10.3%)/450 (-10%)/850 (-10.5%) (Assuming 1450/500/950) - We were this close to greatness. Under predicted, but at least I got the ratios right 4. Star Wars: Episode IX - 1250 (+17.9%)/600 (+17.6%)/650 (+18.2%) (Assuming 1060/510/550) - Over predicted, but at least I got the ratios right. 5. Spider-Man: Far From Home - 1025 (-9.4%)/375 (-4.0%)/650 (-12.3%) - One if my better predictions. OS over performed 6. Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw - 1000 (+31.8%)/200 (+15.1%)/800 (+36.7%) - Over predicted by a lot 7. Toy Story 4 - 975 (-9.2%)/350 (-19.4%)/625 (-2.3%) - Another halfway decent prediction. If I had had DOM up by 75, this prediction would pretty much be spot on 8. Jumanji 3 - 925 (+18.6%)/350 (+12.9%)/575 (+22.3%) (Assuming 780/310/470) - Over predicted 9. Captain Marvel - 900 (-20.2%)/375 (-12.1%)/525 (-25.1%) - I say I'm an MCU fanboy but I under predicted all 3 MCUs this year. Maybe I should start going higher 10. The Secret Life of Pets 2 - 900 (+109.6%)/325 (+105.3%)/575 (+112.0%) - Don't even talk to me about this one dude I did not predict Joker or Aladdin making it into the top 10. I'm still trash at this
  4. Here were my predictions for 2019 (WW/DOM/OS) and how my predictions lined up with reality. Green text represents my prediction being within 9.9% right (either positively or negatively - hint, there's not that many). Yellow text represents my prediction being within 10-19.9% correct. Red text means that I was more than 20% off on my prediction. The percentages are based on (My prediction) divided by (What the film actually grossed), so as to measure my own ability to predict the box office Will post my 2020 predictions before January is over. 1. Avengers: Endgame - 1925 (-31.2%)/625 (-27.2%)/1300 (-33.0%) - Way off on this, but then again, who wasn't. OS alone outgrossed what I thought would be its WW gross 2.

  5. I know it's dramatic, but I feel pretty personally hurt by this, as if an old friend of mine has moved out of town or something. I know it's still there, and much of the same data is still there, albeit in a very impractical manner, but it's not the same. I probably won't be using BOM anymore, and I hope that enough people feel this way that either BOM brings back the old design, or someone with enough passion and data collection experience makes a new site. And if that site has forums that are as fun and exciting as these forums, I would even pay to have it all. But for now, farewell BOM.
  6. So we'll probably get an update in a few months that's over 1.94B OS?
  7. Where did all of these new theaters come from?
  8. Not quite yet. AWE is at $654.0m OS and $963.4m WW, according to BOM.
  9. In the summer of 2013, when I worked at a movie theater, my coworker and I made a bet. Iron Man 3 vs Man of Steel, me for Iron Man, him on Man of Steel. Whichever movie grossed more was $20 for the winner, and an additional $20 for every $50m over. I won $60 from the bet ($20 for winning in general, an additional $40 since Iron Man made 118m more). Homeboy gave me $60 in pennies. Needless to say, my bank was not ammused.
  10. I don't think TF3 would have ever held the record. DH2 beat it to 1B, so it would've gone straight from ROTK to DH2.
  11. What if, just what if, the MTW scenario is like TFA where all three days saw roughly the same number of people attend and Wednesday gives us an increase from Tuesday? Does anyone else think it's a possibility?
  12. What are the odds the movie finishes with something like 850/2000/2850, becoming WW champion, TFA stays DOM champion, and Avatar stays OS champion?
