Box Office Blitz Week 6 Results!

Wow, I really stink at my own game.  Or in this case Excel stunk it up for me.  That great experiment ended as a complete failure.  4 new movies this week and only 1 of them finished in the top 3!  That's pretty sad.

The top 3 movies were:
The Butler $25M
We're the Millers $17.8M
Elysium $13.6M

I had Excel pick:
  1. Kick-Ass 2  $34M
  2. Jobs    $25M
  3. The Butler   $22M
Which was pretty bass-ackwards.  I only get 100 points for the Butler.

David Walton picked:
1. The Butler $19M
2. Kick-Ass 2 $17M
3 We're the Millers $16M

He gets 200 for the Butler and 100 for Millers.

Briane Pagel picked:
1. Kick Ass 2, $25 mil.
2. Millers $20 mil
3. Paranoia $18 mil

He gets 300 for Millers and 0 for the others.

Andrew Leon picked:
1. Kick-Ass 2: $24m
2. The Butler: $21m
3. We're the Millers: $15m

He gets 100 for the Butler and 100 for Millers.

Rusty picked:
Butler - $22mil
Kick-Ass 2 - $20 mil
The Millers - $16 mil

That's 200 for Butler and 100 for Millers.

And Chris Dilloway picked:
Butler 20 mill
Kick ass 2 18 mill
millers 15 mill

That's also 200 for Butler and 100 for Millers.

Rusty picked The Butler closest, so I guess he's the winner of the round and gets 300 bonus points.  Yeesh, that was pretty sad.

Here's the updated scoreboard:

  1. I saw Elysium, so I guess I helped mess my score up again. OH well, had fun!

  2. Saw The Butler this weekend. A "C" at best. They were trying to pull off a combination of "Forrest Gump" and "The Help" and really missed the boat.

  3. I saw Elysium and We are the Millers this weekend. I'm practically throwing money at anyone who's willing to take it from me know, as long as they have a movie for me to sit in front of for a bit.

  4. I'm hearing good things about Elysium too. I think the Oprah-Faithful are coming out to support The Butler in droves.

  5. Congrats Rusty. This was a soft weekend and none of the movies did very well. I was out of town this week and guaranteed a big fat Sacko.
