Weekend Box Office Predictions Game: Shrek Defuses MacGruber?


Shrek Forever After is the big question mark in this latest round of the Weekend Box Office Prophet Game where you predict what five films will make in ticket sales in the upcoming weekend. In the last round, the Prophet took 4 of the 5 films from the player averages including winning Iron Man 2 by a mere $100k. Punisher707 receives a consolation prize for finishing with the best score amongst all the players.

Taking on the big green ogre this weekend in our game is Universal’s MacGruber with Will Forte and Kristen Wiig, along with holdovers Iron Man 2, Letters to Juliet with Amanda Seyfried, and Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood with Russell Crowe.

The game’s objective is to guess the final domestic box office dollars in millions for these five films from Friday, May 21 through Sunday, May 23. Your prediction is averaged in with the other players for a cumulative score to compete against the Prophet predictions (view the overall leaderboard).

Should the average player differences between the actual box office gross and predicted grosses beat the Prophet for 3 or more of the 5 films, the top player will win last week’s prize, Mel Brooks’ High Anxiety on Blu-ray Disc, as well as this week’s prize, Robin Hood: Men in Tights on Blu-ray Disc. A tie goes in favor of the players.

If the Prophet wins then both prizes will rollover into the next round and be joined by a third. We will still award a small prize to the top place finisher should that happen.

Once you are logged in, the average player scores will update in real time below as new predictions are entered. The entry period will close at 9pm PST Thursday, May 20, with this round’s results being published in the next round’s game page next Tuesday or Wednesday.
