I'm Feeling More Derby Than Ever | Week 14

I am kinda pissed with the inclusion of Everything Everywhere. Where could I have known it was gonna expand into 38 theaters? I thought it would stay at 10 or else I would have never put 0.37M in the Derby. It kinda makes no sense to use these movies. It is not the first time it happens and I am legit mad I am losing points because of random shit I couldn't have predicted.

 

The expansion was reported. Not keeping up with things is your fault, not Chips.

No BP winner expansion to deal with, but deadline says Everything Everywhere all it once will expand to 30-50, so that could actually make enough to beat Sing.

It was reported to expand to 30-50 as of last Monday, and was mentioned in last wk’s derby thread while discussing this weekend’s likely top 10. If it was staying flat at 10 theaters I doubt it would even be included.  
 

BoxOfficePro reported the precise 38 location count on wed https://www.boxofficepro.com/weekend-box-office-forecast-morbius/

Last but not least, A24’s platform sensation Everything Everywhere All at Once will expand to a reported 38 locations this weekend, via studio confirmation. The film scored a stellar $510K debut from just 10 locations last weekend and is in the middle of a staggered nationwide rollout that will culminate with a wide release on April 8.


I don’t personally have a strong opinion on its inclusion this weekend, I was fine with it or sing rounding things out. Expanding small releases are more interesting, but also more volatile. But I also agree with XXR here — it’s hardly unfair to players of a box office game to expect that they’ll do some theater count research on platform releases when it’s available well before the deadline.

I checked The Numbers and there was nothing there about a theater increase. This is something for me to do in 15 minutes, not to do extensive research imo.

I checked BOP as well but missed that paragraph. I don't have time for this anymore tbh, I usually just look at The Numbers because it has all the TCs in one quick place. The best thing is to just drop out I guess. Good luck to everyone in future games and I hope more people joins in.

Buddy, I'm sorry you don't think it's fair. We're literally just coming off a pandemic where it's extremely difficult to get 10 films to predict. If you'd like to stop playing until we actually have a decent choice of movies that's fine. But we've been predicting movies under $1 mil for 14 weeks now. This specific movie is not that much different than including RRR last week.

Nevermind man, it was right there in the BO weekend article. I just missed it because I do these things in a rush usually on a work break and check a couple of sources at best (usually BO and The Numbers). It is my fault. You do a great job running this game. Keep up with that.
