Box Office Blitz: Week 15

Well I guess like Tom Cruise this week, I'm back on top, or almost.  I think it's going to get a little complicated again this week to determine the winner.

This week's top 3 at the box office were:

  1. Oblivion $38.2
  2. 42 $18M
  3. Croods $9.5M

My picks were:

  1. Oblivion $40M
  2. 42 $18M
  3. Croods $15M
Which is a trifecta!  Is that good enough to win the round?  Maybe not.

In the meantime, Michael Offutt picked:
Oblivion $33 million
42 $20 million
The Croods $9 million

That's also a trifecta for him.

Stephen Hayes picked:
#1 Oblivion $29 mil.
#2 The Place Under the Pines $18 mil.
#3Scary Movie 5 $11 million.

That's 100 for Oblivion and 0 for the other two.

Andrew Leon picked:
1. Oblivion -- $42m
2. 42 -- $21m
3. Croods -- $9m

Also a trifecta.  (Dang everyone copying me this week!)

Rusty Webb picked:
Oblivion - $50mil
42 - $20 mil
Croods $10 mil

Yup, another trifecta.  We're all winners!  (almost)

Maurice Mitchell guessed:
1.Oblivion - $36 mil
2. 42 - $20.1 mil
3. The Croods - $8.5 mil

Another trifecta

And Tony Laplume picked:
1. Oblivion ($40 mil)
2. 42 ($20 mil)
3. The Croods ($10 mil)

Also a trifecta.

Now then, who wins the round?  The fact Oblivion was listed as $38.2 is important.  That means Maurice Mitchell is $2.2M off the mark.  Whereas Tony and I are $1.8M off the mark.  Which narrows it down to us.  And since we both picked $40M we go to the #2 movie to settle it.  Tony picked 42 at $20M which is $2M off the mark, whereas I bullseyed it at $18M.

Which means I WIN!  For the first time since week 4.  So I shouldn't get too cocky I guess.

As for the bonus question, I asked whether there would be more, less or the same number of players than last week, which was 8.  The obvious answer is less.  4 people picked that.  Random.org picked #4 which is Maurice Mitchell, so he gets the bonus 200 points.  Huzzah!

Now the updated standings:
