SUMMERTIME IS HERE, HUZZAH!


WELCOME TO THE SUPER FUN ALL CONSUMING BEHEMOTH SUMMER GAME 2018!

 

Looking for a fun and frantic way to quench your predictioning thirst until next summer rolls around again? If yes, the summer game is where things be at. 

The game will run from Friday April 20th until Monday September 3rd. So that means that all grosses and predictions will only count until Monday September 3rd

As for structure, the main focus is on preseason general gross predictions and a sprinkling of bonus questions. Then during the game itself, there will be weekly sets of questions as well as the good old SOTM (Spur of the Moment – You will learn to love these ;) ) questions too. So let’s get to the predictioning:

 

EDIT (JJ-8) : links to the SOTM's are in the 3rd post of this thread 

 

A: DOMESTIC TOP 15

 

Predict the 15 films you believe will gross the highest over the course of the summer game along with a predicted gross. You may choose any film for this list that gets released during the course of the summer game (If you think that some film listed on BOM for a 22 screen limited release is going to explode to $750M domestic, then go ahead and predict it).

 

 Therefore your top 15 predictions should look something like the following:

 

 1) The Emoji Movie 2: Wrath of the Eggplant: 485M
2) Robin Hood: Scourge of the Forest 46lM
3) The Merry Wives of Nolan 411M
4) The Rock does Die Hard 325M
5) The Rock does Rambo 232M
6) The Rock does Predator 177M
7) The Tooth Fairy 2: Teething Problems  155M
😎 Rob Schneider is a Carrot! 118M
9) Sparticus 2: The Quickening 115M
10) Oz: There’s NoPlace Like Gnomes 112M
11) Dino-shark! 109M
12) Half-life 3: The Movie 104M
13) Player One wasn’t Ready, He Gets Another Turn! 95M
15) Untitled Paramount Event Film 92M

 

POINT SYSTEM:


For every film you call correctly in the top 15, in any order, you will get 25,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot, you will get 50,000 points (total). So you must think this out thoroughly. You will also lose 15,000 points for every film in the top 15 that you call incorrectly. So, for example, if you say Avengers will be in the top 15, and it misses the top 15, you will lose 15,000 points (PLUS whatever you miss the gross by). 
 

If you are able to call the top two positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 40,000 point bonus.
If you are able to call the top three positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 120,000 point bonus.
If you are able to call the top four positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 250,000 point bonus.
If you are able to call the top five positions right, in order, regardless of gross, you will get a 400,000 point bonus.  This is not as easy as you might think it is.

B: DOMESTIC TOP 7 WEEKENDS (READ CAREFULLY)

NOTE: THIS IS NO LONGER EXCLUSIVELY OPENING WEEKENDS.

Due to platform style release schedule of award targeted films before the proper release date, this section will no longer be exclusively opening weekends but rather any weekend in general. This means that if a repeat of the American Sniper situation from Winter 2014 occurs again, the 100 million ‘3rd weekend’ or whenever it was would be that film’s qualifying weekend.

 

 

 A film’s weekend will always be deemed its 3 day Friday to Sunday gross (including Thursday previews). So if a film opens on a Wednesday, only the BOM reported Friday-Sunday 3 day will count as the weekend total.

 

  

POINT SYSTEM:

For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 15,000 points

For each film in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 25,000 total)

Call top 2 in order and receive 20,000 bonus points

Call top 3 in order and receive 50,000 bonus points

Call top 4 in order and receive 100,000 bonus points

Call 5 of the top 7 correctly (any order) receive 50,000 bonus points

Call 6 of the top 7 (any order) receive 100,000 bonus points

Call top 7 (any order) receive 175,000 bonus points

For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points

 

The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers:

 

  Reveal hidden contents

 

😄 TOP 12 WORLDWIDE TOTAL GROSS

 

Predict the top 12 grossing films of the Summer, worldwide.

 

POINT SYSTEM:

 

For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 25,000 points

For each film in the exact spot you receive 15,000 bonus points (so 40,000 total)

Call top 3 in order and receive 60,000 bonus points

Call top 4 in order and receive 120,000 bonus points

Call top 5 in order and receive 200,000 bonus points

Call 8 of the top 12 correctly (any order) receive 125,000 bonus points

Call 9 of the top 12 correctly (any order) receive 175,000 bonus points

Call 10 of the top 12 correctly (any order) receive 250,000 bonus points

Call 11 of the top 12 (any order) receive 350,000 bonus points

Call top 12 (any order) receive 500,000 bonus points

For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points

😧 CHINA TOP 5!

China has a sub-forum now, so let’s give it a preseason section in the summer game! Predict the top 5 Hollywood (anything with a Domestic Wide release) films in China.

 

POINT SYSTEM:

 

For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 15,000 points

For each film in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 25,000 total)

Call 3 of the top 5 correctly and receive 50,000 bonus points

Call 4 of the top 5 correctly and receive 100,000 bonus points

Call 5 of the top 5 correctly and receive 150,000 bonus points

  

 

For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points

 
The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers:

 

  Reveal hidden contents

 

NOTE: Every top x films list will also have space for a reserve, this reserve will only be used if a film in the main list becomes ineligible for some reason. 

 

E: MULTIPLIERS MULTIPLY THE FUN!

Predict which 5 Domestic wide releases have the largest multipliers. The multiplier will be determined by the films total gross divided by their opening Fri-Sun (Incl Thurs previews) gross.

A film will only be eligible for this list if:

l  It opens before August 18th

l  Is in more than 1,500 theaters in its first weekend

l  Makes more than $40M.

 

POINT SYSTEM:

Call a film correctly in the top 5:  10,000 points

Call a film correctly in the top 5 and in the correct place:  25,000 points (including the above 10)

 

Chosen film does not make $40m – Minus 10,000 points

Chosen film does not make top 5 – Minus 10,000 points

Chosen film does not make $40m AND does not make top 5 – Minus 25,000 points (total)

Call 3 of the top 5 – 25,000 points

Call 4 of the top 5 – 50,000 points

Call 5 of the top 5 – 100,000 points

Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 40,000 points

Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 80,000 points

Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 150,000 points

 

GROSS ACCURACY:

There are no gross/multiplier predictions required only placements.

 

F: TOTAL GROSSES

 

Predict a total gross for each of: Top 15 Domestic, Top 7 W/E, Top 10 WW and Top 5 China (This does not have to have any mathematical connection to your predictions in parts A-D). This will look something like:

 

Top 15: 3 Billion dollars

Top 7 W/E 475M

Top 10 WW: 8 Trillion Dollars

Top 5 China: 17 dollars

 

POINT SYSTEM:

 

For each prediction if you are:

 

Within 25% of the final total. score 10,000 points

Within 20% of the final total. score 15,000 points

Within 15% of the final total. score 20,000 points

Within 10% of the final total. score 25,000 points

Within 8% of the final total. score 30,000 points

Within 5% of the final total. score 35,000 points

Within 2% of the final total. score 50,000 points

 

 

 

If all four predictions are within 10% score a bonus 30,000

If all four predictions are within 8% score a bonus 80,000

If all four predictions are within 5% score a bonus 120,000

If all four predictions are within 2% score a bonus 200,000


G: RANDOM FREE QUESTIONS

 

This summer we have three generous risk-free questions to start you off:

 

RFQ1:  Predict which film will finish closest to each of the following milestones domestically by the end of the game:

 

A: 100M

B: 200M

😄 300M

😧 400M

E: 500M

 

RFQ2: Predict which film will finish closest to each of the following milestones Worldwide by the end of the game:

 

A: $1.5B

B: $1B

😄 800M

😧 600M

E: 400M

 

RFQ3: Predict the highest grossing film released in each month by the end of the game:

 

A: April (What could this possibly be now…)

B: May

😄 June

😧 July

E: August

 

 

SCORING

 

Predict the first placed film – 25,000 points

Predict the second placed film – 10,000 points

Predict all 5 first placed films – 75,000 bonus

Predict all 5 first or second placed films – 25,000 bonus

 

 

This is everything. There will be no big list of preseason questions this summer. Instead, there will be four SOTM (Spur of the Moment) questions. These will appear sporadically over the next month in the Summer Game sub-forum.

 

***ONE FINAL NOTE***

 

The official Deadline for this game is April 20th.

 

HOWEVER, if you so wish you may take an extra week on these preseasons and post before April 27. Any prediction or edits made between April 20th and 27th will render that player ineligible to answer the weekly questions for the weekend of April 20th.

Gonna give some folks a headstart though because I gotta protest all that April 20/week 0 nonsense. Summer's long enough as it is, and that week is not summer. I've never understood why we do this and I'm not about to.

and FYI :

 

The game will run from Friday April 20th until Monday September 3rd. So that means that all grosses and predictions will only count until Monday September 3rd

 

The game is UP TO and INCLUDING Monday 3rd September :)

don't think this has been a relevant issue before, or maybe I'm just being stupid, but do the movies have to have been released after 20 April?

 

By which I mean if we think for example that RAMPAGE's gross from 20 April onwards will be in the top 15, can we include it?
