Baumer's Summer 2014 Game: Top 7 Domestic Opening Weekends / Top 5 Worldwide Weekends

Recommended Posts

In the vain of LAGuy's infamous thread, I thought it might be of interest to put together a thread which tracks the top opening weekends (domestically) for the game.  I've compiled the data and will be posting TASM 2 shortly. Note - I will eventually add the worldwide weekends to this, but it's a little more time consuming than i have right now.


Here are the original details for reference:


Top 7 Weekends (Domestic)



Opening weekends this year will be from the time the film opens until the end of Sunday night.  This takes the pressure off of me from figuring out if it opened on a Tues, Wed and so on.

Tell me what films will finish with the 7 best opening weekends domestically. 


Midnights will now be from the night it opens.  Again, I'm taking the guess work out of this.


Scoring for best opening weekends:

For every film you call correctly in the top seven, regardless of order, you will receive 10,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot it opens, you will get 15,000 points. If you are able to call 5 of the 7 correctly, you will receive a 75,000 point bonus. Call all seven correctly, you get a 150,000 point bonus. For every film you call incorrectly in the top 7, you lose 7,000 points.


Gross wise:  If you call the opening weekend within 5M, get 20,000

Call the opening weekend within 5.01M-10M, get 15,000

Call it withink 10.01-20M, get 10,000

Miss it by 20-30mill and lose no points.

Miss it by more than 30.01 mill, lose 10,000pts.



Wordwide Weekends Question:


International Flair #2:

What five films will have the best weekends World Wide? I realize some films open day and date, and others do not. This is why it is now just best weekend.

For every film in the top 5 you call correctly, you get 25,000 points.
For every film you call incorrectly, you lose 10,000 points.
If you call 3 of the top 5 correctly, regardless of order, you get a 20,000 point bonus.
If you call all 5 correctly, regardless of order, you get a 75,000 point bonus


For the gross, predict what the films gross for the weekend.  Here is the point structure.


Guess within 50-60 million:  10,000

Guess within 40-49.99 million:  20,000

Guess within 30-39.999 million:  30,000

Guess within 20-29.999 million:  40,000

Guess within 10-19.999 million:  75,000

Guess within 0-9.999 mill:  100,000 


There will be no point deductions for missing the gross by more than 60 million.

TFiOS is going to have a large opening as well, it's been getting TONS of hype (much more than Divergent) and is Young Adult centered, that alone should cement a 55m+ opening.  I'm betting in the high 60s to mid 70 range, similar to the first Twilight.

where's my prediction for Spidy? I'm pretty sure I had it at $93m

yeah I thought that weird. Just checked your pre game predictions. U didn't include the top 7 domestic OW list at all. The entire list is missing.
