SOTM1 - Overs, Unders, Halves and Doubles - Deadline: Thursday May 4th, 11:59pm

Recommended Posts

Seems like I am kind of creating a tradition of sorts to kick off SOTM season with this style of question. Often though, it is not a wielder of big points, so I think I may try to tweak the risk/reward just a little... (There is now a part B)

 

PART A:

 

Below are 10 films due for release between the start of the game and June 16th, along with their predicted total grosses according to http://pro.boxoffice.com/long-range-forecast-cars-3-rough-night-eyez/

 

 

1. King Arthur - $67M

2. Lowriders - $15.3M

3. Snatched - $85M

4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid - $32M

5. Everything Everything - $26M

 

6. It Comes at Night - $39M

7. Captain Underpants - $93.5M

8. All Eyes on Me - $49M

9. Rough Night - $80M

10. Cars 3 - $180M

 

All you have to do is predict whether the predictions above are too high, or too low. You can choose to predict for as many or as few films as you wish. 

 

If you wish to go further, you could also choose to wager that a film will make less than half or more than double the above predictions. These predictions have bigger risks and bigger rewards.

 

Predictions will be scored as follows:

 

Correct High/Low Prediction - 8000 points

Correct Double/Half Prediction - 20000 points

 

Incorrect High/Low Prediction - Minus 6000 points

Incorrect Double/Half Prediction - Minus 15000 points

 

PART B:

 

Here are 10 questions: 

 

1. Which film not called Lowriders will be the lowest grossing?

2. Which non-animated film will be the highest grossing?

3. Will a non-animated film on that list make the main games Domestic Top 15 list?

4. Will any film double its predicted gross?

5. Will any film fail to reach half of its predicted gross?

 

6. Will the actual combined total gross for the 10 films be higher or lower than the predicted total gross?

7. Percentage wise, what will be boxoffice.com's best prediction?

8. Percentage wise, what will be boxoffice.com's worst prediction?

9. Will 3 or more of these films open in the number 2 position?

10. Will 2 or more of these films open in 5th or lower?

 

Predictions will be scored as follows:

 

Number of correct answers in Part A x Number of correct answers in Part B x 1000

 

So if you got 6 correct in part A and 4 correct in part B, you will score: 6 x 4 x 1000 = 24,000 points for part B. 

 

There is no risk of losing points in part B. 

 

 

There is also the option to abstain from this question. If you state that you Abstain in this Thread, you will receive 3000 points

 

Any player who does not predict or state abstain in this thread will lose 8000 points

 

 

The Deadline is Thursday May 4th at 11:59pm (Game start time)

 

Enjoy :)

3. Snatched - $85M  will be lower

4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid - $32M will be higher

All you have to do is predict whether the predictions above are too high, or too low. You can choose to predict for as many or as few films as you wish. 

 

If you wish to go further, you could also choose to wager that a film will make less than half or more than double the above predictions. These predictions have bigger risks and bigger rewards.

 

Predictions will be scored as follows:

 

Correct High/Low Prediction - 8000 points

Correct Double/Half Prediction - 20000 points

 

Incorrect High/Low Prediction - Minus 6000 points

Incorrect Double/Half Prediction - Minus 15000 points

 

PART B:

 

Here are 10 questions: 

 

1. Which film not called Lowriders will be the lowest grossing? Wimpy kid

2. Which non-animated film will be the highest grossing?  Snatched

3. Will a non-animated film on that list make the main games Domestic Top 15 list? Yes

4. Will any film double its predicted gross?  No

5. Will any film fail to reach half of its predicted gross?  no

 

6. Will the actual combined total gross for the 10 films be higher or lower than the predicted total gross?  Higher

7. Percentage wise, what will be boxoffice.com's best prediction?  Cars 3

8. Percentage wise, what will be boxoffice.com's worst prediction? Lowriders

9. Will 3 or more of these films open in the number 2 position? Yes

10. Will 2 or more of these films open in 5th or lower? Yes

 

Predictions will be scored as follows:

 

Number of correct answers in Part A x Number of correct answers in Part B x 1000

 

So if you got 6 correct in part A and 4 correct in part B, you will score: 6 x 4 x 1000 = 24,000 points for part B. 

 

There is no risk of losing points in part B. 

 

 

There is also the option to abstain from this question. If you state that you Abstain in this Thread, you will receive 3000 points

 

Any player who does not predict or state abstain in this thread will lose 8000 points

 

 

The Deadline is Thursday May 4th at 11:59pm (Game start time)

 

Enjoy :)
