Summer Game SOTM 2: Forecasting the forecasts - Deadline is Thursday 12th May at 11:59pm

Recommended Posts

There are a number of films that for many reasons received few to none gross predictions in our collective top 15 domestic charts. This is a minor chance for some of those films to shine.

 

Boxoffice.com do their weekly long range forecasts for all wide movies that currently runs up until the July 1st releases. Below I shall list some of forecasts for films nobody (or at best almost nobody) sees impacting the final top 15:

 

Money Monster: $28m

Nice Guys: $60m

Popstar: $25m

Me before You: $45m

 

Now you see me 2: $65M

Free State of Jones: $43M

The Shallows: $28m

The purge: $42m

 

You may choose as many or as few of the above films as you please. For each film you choose, you must select 1 of the following predictions: HIGHER, LOWER, HALF, DOUBLE.

 

HIGHER: Means you predict the final total by end of game will be higher than BO.com's above forecast

LOWER: Means you predict the final total by end of game will be lower than BO.com's above forecast

 

HALF: Means you predict the final total by end of game will be less than half of the BO.com's above forecast

DOUBLE: Means you predict the final total by end of game will be more than double BO.com's above forecast

 

SCORING

 

For every correct prediction using either HIGHER or LOWER score 4000 points.

For every correct prediction using either HALF or DOUBLE score 10000 points.

 

For every incorrect prediction using either HIGHER or LOWER score minus 6000 points.

For every incorrect prediction using either HALF or DOUBLE score minus 15000 points.

 

This means that technically 80000 points can be won on this question, but it does require BO.com to be very very bad at its job :D 

 

Deadline is Thursday midnight at 11:59pm on 12th.

 

It is now 7am and I haven't slept yet so if there is something here which is unclear I will deal with it when I am more awake :)

What about an On The Spot? You know, like within 5% of the given gross. Well you'll have to slightly adjust the higher and lower categories, but I think this should be an option.

 

Can't change things now :) ALso I get my joy from seeing the pain on players' faces when they just miss out on a correct answer :D

So what happens if I predict higher and it grosses double, or I predict lower and it grosses less than half? I guess the answer is incorrect in that case?

 

If you predict higher and it does double, you still win for predicting higher. Obviously it is not the case the other way aro

und though :)

Sigh. I'm really wishing I'd bailed on Week 0 and edited my pre-season predictions one last time. Oh well. 

 

Edit -
