BOTM 2 (I'm good with calculations)...deadline is less than 6 hours now

Recommended Posts

Here are the top eight films from last weekend:


1 Wonder Woman $58,520,672 ...$206.646,175:  409.5M...3.46X

2 The Mummy (2017) $31,688,375 $31,668,375:  80.1M...2.52X

3 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie: $12,180,704 $44,443,216:  73.5M 2.40X

4 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales $10,704,103 $135,830,397 172.3M...3.41X

5 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 $6,312,367 $366,431,539  389.7M...3.69X

6 It Comes At Night $5,988,370..$5,988,370  13.88M 2.31X

7 Baywatch .$4,648,207 $51,113,342 58M...1.5X

8 Megan Leavey $3,810,867 $3,810,867  13.1M  3.44X


The correct answer is:


1) GotG 2:  3.69X

2) Wonder Woman:  3.46X

3) Meagan Leavey:  3.44X



As you can see you have the weekend gross and the total for each film.


Your assignment today, if you choose to accept it, is to tell me what three films will have the best multiplier of those 8.  You will be using the weekend gross to determine the multiplier.


So for example, if you were to say that you think WW will have the best multiplier of the 8, then you are using the weekend number and determining from there what the multiplier will be.  So right now, as of this post, for example, WW has made 206.46 million after a weekend gross of 58.52 million.  If you think it will have the best multiplier, then you figure out what you think the final gross will be, subtract it from the current gross listed and the divide by the weekend number.  Sounds complicated, but it's not.


Example:  WW final gross:  500.6 million

WW current gross listed:  206.6 million

Final additional gross is 300 million

Divide that by WW's weekend gross listed of 58.52 million 

And you have a multiplier of 5.12 million.




If your top three films are correct and in the exact order, you score 50,000 points.

If your top three films are correct but not in the right order, you score 25,000 points

If you get two of three films correct, in any order, you score 10,000 points

If you get only one right, you lose 10,000 points

If you get all three wrong, you lose 50,000 points.  


If you wish to abstain, you lose 8,000 points.   


Deadline for this is thee days from now.  You have a lot of data to work with already.  And you will have weekend actuals to work with to help you out.  So the deadline is Monday evening at 11:59 PM


If you miss this question (part of this game is being present and reading this thread from time to time), you will lose 25,000 points...in other words, you have to answer.


Any questions, fire away.

Does it matter the order?  Or just pick three films?  If the latter


Wonder Woman

Megan Leavey

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2


Yes, the order matters.  If you are able to nail all three in the right order, you win 50,000 points.  Just picking the right three, but out of order, is worth half.
