Box Office Blitz Week 19 Results

Not that surprising of a result this week.  I'm going to hurry with this since the Internet has been cutting in and out all day.

The numbers were:
  1. Fake Star Trek 2 $70M
  2. Iron Man 3 $35M
  3. Gatsby $20M
And everyone except Briane Pagel got a trifecta.  Which is too bad for Briane because if he had guessed Gatsby at #3 he would have won.  Instead, the winner this week is Michael Offutt, despite the confusing way he phrased his pick.

As for the bonus question, Fake Star Trek 2 made about half of what Iron Man 3 did its opening weekend, so the answer was decidedly LESS.  The winner of 200 points is Stephen Hayes.

And to answer Cindy's question, picks have to be in by Saturday morning at the latest.  Otherwise you could read the report on Friday's take which would make it too easy to win.  Here's the updated scores:

  1. I'm still not doing too well. Oh, well, I'm off to see Iron Man III. I hope it's good.

  2. Evidently, I overestimated the appeal of Trek.

  3. Crap. I LOST ground. Stupid people not seeing the stupid movie I picked as number three. I'm gonna be so happy when Canada and England drone strike us and take over and impose their way of life. We'll see how you like universal health care, a culture that doesn't impose leftover puritannical values, and an educational system that makes sense!

  4. Oh wow, Star Trek didn't do near as well as I thought it would. Maybe it was the weather. It was too good this weekend to be stuck inside.
    Anyway, I would've lost anyway...

  5. Dang, my score is deplorable. I need to up the ante. :)

  6. At least I stayed in fifth place. Congrats Michael! They're saying Star Trek 2 is under performing even though it's making a ton of money. There's a lot of competition this May.
