    Simple Yes/No Answers:

    9.    Will Rogue One’s opening weekend be the biggest of 2016?
    10.    Will Rogue One make enough (Gross Total) to pass the 3rd biggest film Domestically of ALL TIME (unadjusted)?

    A few final questions to really test the thinking…..


    17.    Which film (Rogue One or Fantastic Beasts) will hold onto the # 1 Daily Rank for the longest?
    18.    In What position will Fantastic Beasts be in (in the Weekend Chart), the weekend Rogue One opens (you have a cushion of 1 position)?
    19.    How many characters will appear in Rogue One that are considered to be main characters or were introduced in the main Franchise films (I will give you a cushion of 1 character)?
    20.    Which film (Rogue One or Fantastic Beasts) will have more # 1 films in various countries around the world (including Domestic) (this is as reported by BOM (Domestic and International))?
            a.    As a bonus tell me how many countries have your selected film as number 1 (there is no cushion and if you get it wrong you don’t lose anything as it is a bonus). (also you must get Q20 correct to be able receive a score for part a.)
