Box Office Blitz Regular Season Grand Finale!

It's time for the last roundup of Box Office Blitz for the regular season.  This was a pretty big weekend for kid-friendly movies.  The estimated results are:

Hunger Games 2 $74.5M
Frozen $66.1M
Thor 2 $15.5M

My picks were:
  1. Hunger Games 2 $50M
  2. Frozen $30M
  3. Homefront $15M
That's 200 for HG2 and 300 for Frozen for 500 total

Maurice Mitchell picked:
1. Hunger Games Catching Fire - $60 mil
2. Frozen - $45 mil
3. Thor the Dark World - $15.7 million

That's a trifecta for 900 points!

Briane Pagel picked:
1. Frozen, $60 mil
2. Catching fire $55 mil
3. Homefront, $20 mil.

That's 100 each for Frozen and Catching Fire for 200 total.

David Walton picked:
1. Hunger Games Catching Fire - $100 M
2. Frozen - $60 M
3. Oldboy- $20 M

That's also 500 points

Chris Dilloway picked:
Hunger games 2 - $65m
Frozen - $50m
Homefront - $15m

Also 500 points

Andrew Leon was the only one to take advantage of being able to change his picks.  And the gamble paid off as he picked:
1. Catching Fire: $70m
2. Frozen: $60m
3. Thor 2: $12m

For the trifecta and the win for 1200 points since he was closer on Hunger Games 2 than Maurice

And here are the standings going into the playoffs:

Congrats to Rusty, David, and Chris for winning the regular season and to everyone except Briane Pagel for avoiding the Sacko.  The playoff matchups next week will be:

1 Rusty Carl vs. 8. Briane Pagel
2 David Walton vs. 7 Michael Offutt
3 Chris Dilloway vs. 6 P.T. Dilloway in the Dilloway Bowl (like the Manning Bowl only without the fame, money, endorsements, and Super Bowl rings)
4 Andrew Leon vs. 5 Maurice Mitchell

The rules for the playoffs will be posted on Friday.  In the meantime start hitting the books to get prepared.  Or just half-ass it like I always do.


  1. What books do I need to hit?
    I really need to hit the Checkbook!

  2. So Rusty more or less gets a bye in the first round. I've said it before, but I'll say it again. I AM REALLY BAD AT THIS. So bad that I'm practically suffering from a disab... that's it: If Rusty beats me, I file a massive class action lawsuit against him, you, Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence, and bulldogs, while I am at it. "If you can't beat 'em, find a jury that will give you millions." Abe Lincoln said that. Probably.

  3. Congratulations to everyone who made it into the playoffs.

  4. Congrats Andrew! It's been a tough race, but we're almost at the finish line.
