Anyway, the top 3 movies were:
1. Oz the Great and Powerful $42.2M
2. The Call $17.1M
3. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone $10.3M
Really impressed by how much The Call made. I would guesstimate that's the best opening a Brad Anderson movie has had. Which is way overdue because "The Machinist" and "TransSiberian" were awesome. Maybe now he'll get some better jobs.
My shabby picks were:
- Oz the Great and Powerful $35M
- The Incredible Burt Wonderstone $25M
- Jack the Giant Slayer $10M
Maurice Mitchell guessed:
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone $30M
Oz the Great and Powerful $29M
The Call $10M
He gets 50 for each for 150 total.
Rusty Carl guessed:
1. Oz - $38 mil
2. Burt Wonderstone - $22 mil
3. Jack The Giantslayer - $12 mil
He also gets 150 for Oz and Wonderstone.
Andrew Leon guessed:
1. Oz - $40m
2. Wonderstone - $32m
3. The Call - $18m
That's 100 for Oz and 50 apiece for the other two so 200 total.
Tony Laplume guessed:
1. Oz the Great and Powerful ($45 mil)
2. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone ($20 mil)
3. The Call ($10 mil)
Also 200 total.
And Briane Pagel guessed:
1 Oz $50 mil
2. Call $35 mil
3. Burt $28 mil
That's a trifecta! 300 points. And Briane also gets the 500 point bonus for winning the round. He must have followed my expert advice of playing this week and guessing better.
The bonus question was whether Oz would make MORE or LESS than 60% of its first week take which came out to $32M. The answer was MORE. Only Rusty and Andrew (and Briane but he won the round) actually guessed MORE. This week the coin flip comes up on Andrew getting the bonus.
Here are the updated standings. There's no change in the top 4 but Briane has now taken over fifth place.
