Baumers Summer Game (2015) : Domestic Opening Weekends / Worldwide Weekends

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the "other" thread that tracks those pesky opening weekends and worldwide weekends.

 

Due to changes in the game this year, things will be a little different.  There is no scoring for grosses this year for the weekends part of this game.  However as most of you have predicted grosses for both opening weekend and worldwide weekend, i will post a bit of a bragging rights as who got the closest etc.  the real scoring for this part of the game however will be done at the end of the game we have the finalised list.

 

The Weekends part of Baumer's Summer Game 2015 is setup and Scored as follows:

 

 

WORLDWIDE WEEKENDS

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.  And to avoid more confusion, the weekend will include any numbers the film makes from the time it opens during that week.  So if a film opens on a Wednesday, and all of that gross is reported as the opening gross, it will count.

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

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

DOMESTIC OPENING WEEKENDS

Tell me what films will finish with the 5 best opening weekends domestically. Opening weekends will include any money made on Thursday sneaks.  One caveat to this is that if a film changes it's release date, only the gross from Thursday to Sunday will count. So for example, if Jurassic World suddenly decides that it wants to open on a Wednesday, only the gross from Thursday to Sunday will count. There will be no exceptions to this.

Scoring for best opening weekends:

For every film you call correctly in the top five, regardless of order, you will receive 15,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot it opens, you will get 25,000 points. If you are able to call 3 of the 5 correctly, you will receive a 75,000 point bonus. Call all five correctly, you get a 250,000 point bonus. For every film you call incorrectly in the top 5, you lose 10,000 points.

Phew, I was panicking for a second. I didn't put a Domestic OW gross since the question didn't ask for it.

Why was the 168M wknd used for AOU why not the OS OW?

Because this was made clear before the game. That chart refers to HIGHEST WW weekend. Not OW. read the rules Neo. It was clear and I believe you already asked this in the main thread a month back.

For all we know the China OW will blow up and beat the U.S. opening pushing that number higher for AOU.
