They are eating DERBIES! F*cking DERBIES! | Week 33

Recommended Posts

It'll be interesting to see how much of a dive people predict for SS. The new releases also feel tough to predict, making for a potential bloodbath of a week. 88% might do it this time around, @Rolling Thunder

Lol - we'll see.  Without calling anyone out (at the risk of offending), there's 3 A-list players that are statistically overdue for a catastrophic week.  This just may be it.

It's great we have so many skilled predictors on here.  I think we'd be of some value to the studios!  Call me when our checks arrive.  B)

 

(and btw, the "due for a catastrophe" bit was my weak attempt at friendly trash talking, largely in hopes of actually making the Final 4 in this Tourney.)

I see Florence screwing me worse than a Sausage this week.

That's the sort of movie that usually gets a platform launch, but I guess that they saw its UK run as the equivalent somehow in terms of building WOM? But that was way back in May. I'm confused.

Is there any incentive to return after being since April without playing?

Sure, there are seasonal, monthly and weekly wins as well as the Tournament

I think another reason why the derby scores are so high now is because Thursday previews are now a big thing, so we can tell how a movie is doing before the weekend even starts.

Although the Derby prediction window closes hours before Thursday preview results are in.

You can still find proxies for that result before the window closes.

Hm, I've never had Thursday numbers when doing my predictions...

 

And I'm not playing this week, I'm too tired and busy with the olympics, gotta go to bed and wake up in 5 hours

Derby Sheet. @CJohn has returned

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xzOrCQsFapGc1571HZMWD7HNQe8emH2w5e9HSHV4T0s/edit?usp=sharing

I will update Mojo and BO picks later and will add in the tourney brackets as well

Input estimates next to Andy only and the rest is magic, at least it was for me when I first saw it 30+ years ago

I probably went too aggressive lowballing all the way around, given the Olympics were in play last weekend and are rating far lower than in 2012.

 

I'm honestly going to be delighted with top-30 this week, my predictions are so bad. This is where my early run is exposed as fraudulent.

 

Incidentally, no Mojo predictions this week.

Will create them tonight.  I have to modify my code because I want the seeding to be based on the Summer Period only
