SOTM 3 - Questions of Future Past - Note: Interview replaces Hot Tub 2

Recommended Posts

Premise should hopefully be simple, Deadline is 11:59 Tuesday 21st October:

 

Step 1: Consider the following 10 films:

 

Fury  PAST

Gone Girl  PAST

Annabelle  PAST

Addicted   PAST

Book of Life   PAST

  

John Wick    FUTURE

Nightcrawler   FUTURE

The Interview   FUTURE

Unbroken   FUTURE

Ouija   FUTURE

 

Step 2 Consider the following 8 popular Box Office statistics: (all weekends are the 3 day, all opening days are the Friday (with Thursday previews when applicable)

 

Highest opening Weekend

Highest Opening Day

Lowest Opening Weekend  

Lowest Opening Day

Highest 2nd weekend Drop

Biggest Multiplier

Lowest Multiplier

Highest Worldwide total

 

 

You will maybe have noticed that 5 of the films listed will already have been in cinemas when this question's deadline passes (PAST) and 5 will have yet to be released (FUTURE).

 

For each of the statistics listed above, you simply need to decided whether film that matches the statistic is a PAST or FUTURE release (or you can choose to abstain From as many stats as you wish. Therefore your answers may look like the following:

 

Highest opening Weekend PAST

Highest Opening Day  ABSTAIN

Lowest Opening Weekend   FUTURE

Lowest Opening Day   FUTURE

Highest 2nd weekend Drop ABSTAIN

Biggest Multiplier  PAST

Lowest Multiplier PAST

Highest Worldwide total PAST

 

 

For everything correct prediction, you score 2000 points. If you get 100% of your non-abstaining predictions correct you get 1000 bonus points per prediction made (so the example above could win 6000 bonus points if every prediction is correct). 

 

As for potential deductions, you will lose 1000 points for your first incorrect answer, 2000 for the second, 3000 for the third and so on...

 

If you abstain from every question you score 1000 points

 

If you do not state anything you lose 5000 points

Well I guess I abstain all then

 

There are 2 groups of 5 films,

 

Group 1 (PAST) is Fury, Gone Girl, Annabelle, Addicted, Book of Life

 

Group 2 (FUTURE) is John Wick, Nightcrawler, Hot Tub Time Machine, Unbroken, Ouija. 

 

The first Stat is Highest opening weekend, so which single film out of the ten do you think will have the highest OW? If the film is in Group 1 then predict Past, if its group 2 predict future, if you can't decide then Abstain.

 

Then repeat this process for Lowest OW, Highest Total etc etc.

I've decided that while I haven't exactly been swinging for the fences, I was at least trying to double into the gap.  After seeing the results of the first couple weeks (#10 or #11 on virtually every one!), I'm going to try to just make good contact and then leg out some infield singles, or possibly lean into a pitch of two.
