Meanwhile Identity Thief performed strong for a second week despite that it's also R rated so maybe disregard what I just said. Or maybe on Valentine's Day weekend people don't want to watch a violent action movie so much?
Of all the new ones "Safe Haven" performed the best. I still know absolutely nothing about it.
The numbers were:
Die Hard $25M
Identity Thief $23M
Safe Haven $21M
My picks were:
- A Good Day to Die Hard $50M
- Identity Theft $18M
- Warm Bodies $9M
Stephen Hayes guessed:
Beautiful Creatures 20 million
Silver Linings Playbook 11 million
Escape from Planet Earth 10 million
That's a goose egg for him.
Briane Pagel guessed:
1. Die Hard $30 million
2. Beautiful Creatures $12 million
3. Side Effects $10 million.
That's 100 points for him.
Rusty Carl guessed:
Die Hard: $40mil
Beautiful Creatures: $25mil
Identity Theft: $20 mil
That's 100 for Die Hard and 50 for Identity Thief so 150 total.
Andrew Leon guessed:
1. Die Hard: $39m
2. Safe Haven: $30m
3. Identity Thief: $22m
100 for Die Hard and then 50 each for Safe Haven and Identity Thief being in the wrong order. So 200 total.
Maurice Mitchell guessed:
1. A Good Day to Die Hard $55M (Die Hard always opens big)
2. Identity Thief - $20 million (The comedy is going strong)
3. Safe Haven - $30 million (Long weekends always bring out the romantics
That's a trifecta! 300 points for him. That might have won, except...
Tony Laplume guessed:
1. A Good Day to Die Hard ($45 mil)
2. Identity Thief ($25 mil)
3. Safe Haven ($20 mil)
That's another trifecta. And since Tony was closer to the total for Die Hard, he gets the win and the 500 bonus points.
As for the bonus question, the answer was LESS. Only two people actually guessed Less: Andrew Leon and Briane Pagel. By coin flip Briane gets the 100 point bonus.
And here are your updated scores. Tony's expanded his lead now to 650 points. So everyone's got some catching up to do!
