Quiet Please for Box Office Blitz Week 15!

As we go into Week 15 of Box Office Blitz, things have gotten back to more or less the status quo with Tony Laplume taking the top spot both weeks, though one week should have an asterisk by it.  But there's still plenty of time for things to change.

Anyway, just to remind you of the rules, you guess which three movies will rule the box office this weekend.  For each one you guess right you get 50 points.  If you get it in the right position you get 50 bonus points.  And if you win the round you get 500 bonus points.

Now then, here's the list from my local megaplex (* indicates a new release): 

  • 42
  • Admission
  • Evil Dead
  • GI Joe:  Retaliation
  • Identity Thief
  • Jack the Giant Slayer
  • Jurassic Park 3D
  • Oblivion*
  • Olympus Has Fallen
  • Oz the Great & Powerful
  • Quartet
  • Safe Haven 
  • The Sapphires*
  • Scary Movie 5
  • Silver Linings Playbook
  • The Call
  • The Croods
  • The Host 
  • The Place Behind the Pines (This appears to be opening wider than last week now, so keep that in mind)
  • Trance
  • Tyler Perry's Temptation
Despite my misgivings about Tom Cruise movies, I will guess:
  1. Oblivion $40M
  2. 42 $18M
  3. Croods $15M
Here's a bonus question worth 200 points this week.  Last week there were 8 players of Box Office Blitz (not counting myself).  Will there be MORE, LESS, or the SAME number of players (not counting myself) this week?  Answer in the comments along with your picks for a chance to win!

Good luck!


  1. Oblivion $33 million
    42 $20 million
    The Croods $9 million

    Bonus Question: There will be less players not counting you this week.

  2. I don't do the bonus questions for a reason. But then, that reason doesn't end up mattering now, does it? Suck it, losers.

    1. Oblivion ($40 mil)
    2. 42 ($20 mil)
    3. The Croods ($10 mil)

  3. The same number of people will be participating this week.

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

  4. I'm gonna go with
    1. Oblivion -- $42m
    2. 42 -- $21m
    3. Croods -- $9m

    I'm gonna go with less.

  5. Oblivion - $50mil
    42 - $20 mil
    Croods $10 mil

  6. Yup, so the answer was LESS so we have 3 people in contention.

  7. Gonna guess
    1.Oblivion - $36 mil
    2. 42 - $20.1 mil
    3. The Croods - $8.5 mil
    Less. Suck it Tony!
