    Below are 10 films due for release between this weekend and January 11th, along with their predicted total grosses according to https://pro.boxoffice.com/long-range-tracking-dogs-way-home-upside/

     

     

    1. Creed 2 - $113M

    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.

     

    Please use these words

    Too High - the prediction is too high

    Too Low -  the prediction is too low

    Double - The film will make more than double the prediction 

    Half - The film will make less than half the prediction

     

    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 will be the lowest grossing except Hannah Grace?

    2. Which film will be the highest grossing without making more than $100M?

    3. Will exactly four films make the Domestic top 15?

    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 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. How many of these films will open in the number 1 position?

    10. Will 4 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 10000 points

     

     

    The Deadline is Thursday November 22nd at 11:59pm (Weekend start time)

     

    Enjoy :)
