2020 Box Office Prediction Game

#1 Post by knarf » 30 Dec 2019, 20:51

This is a prediction and pick'em game with the winner determined by early February 2021, by using the US Domestic Box Office Gross totals as posted by boxofficemojo.com.

To play, PM your entry to me by Thursday, 1/16/20 11:59pm eastern time.

Step 1 - Pick one from each matchup in the 11 lines below (notice you could be picking two movies in the 1st through 5th matchups):

Wonder Woman 1984 vs. the combined total of Black Widow and Morbius
The Eternals vs. the combined total of Bloodshot and Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
A Quiet Place Part II vs. the combined total of Godzilla vs. Kong and Monster Hunter
Soul vs. the combined total of Scoob! and Sonic the Hedgehog
Halloween Kills vs. the combined total of Candyman and Spiral (Untitled Saw Sequel)
Fast & Furious 9 vs. No Time to Die
Mulan vs. Raya and the Last Dragon
Top Gun: Maverick vs. Tenet
Ghostbusters: Afterlife vs. Jungle Cruise
Bill & Ted Face the Music vs. Onward
Free Guy vs. Venom 2

Step 2 - Pick 5 more 2020 releases (release date 1/17/20 to 12/25/20) that are NOT named in Steps 1 or 3

Step 3 - Tiebreaker: Domestic Box Office Gross of Dune

The Domestic Box Office Total used for each movie will be those posted by boxofficemojo.com, and receipts will be counted through the release week that ends on January 28, 2021.

Winners:
Overall Winner - Person with highest total box office of their 16 movies
Pick'Em Champ - Person with most number of top choices for Step 1
Scout - Person with highest total box office of their 5 Step 2 movies
Marksman - Person whose Step 3 is closest to the actual gross

Ties in the first 3 categories will be broken by the tiebreaker (Step 3)

Remember, your Step 2 entries can't use any movie listed above. I'll post mine after the deadline, but before I open any PM's.

Hold off on your entries. I just saw the latest news on Uncharted, so I'm going to remove it from consideration. I may have to rearrange some of the other match-ups to make things work out better too. I should have it sorted out this evening.

I have to say I'm a bit miffed at the revamp of box office mojo. any good data is now stuck behind an imdb pro membership.
I really liked researching this game on that website. now the whole site is a bit hamstrung unless you shell out some coin.

Especially now :roll:

At some point I'll try to figure out which films will still be shown this season (or even shown in theaters). Should have a lot of impact on our expected results.

no kidding. I wonder if box office mojo will list streaming sales in lieu of box office sales for new releases during this quarantine phase.
