KJ's Winter/Spring 2016 Box Office Contest

While it's going to be tough to think about anything box office-related that's not Star Wars over the next month, it's time to predict the next season! The big movie is obviously Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are also a great number of other movies that will have interesting box office runs.

The season's contest covers movies released from January 8th, 2016 to April 29th, 2016. The player with the most points at the end of the game will receive a $25 gift card.

How the Points Work
Spoiler: show
Each player predicts the total domestic box office grosses of 25 movies listed further below. It's the ultimate test in box office predictions: guessing a movie's potential final gross before the season even starts with few, if any, tracking numbers. For each movie, the top 25% of players who predicted most accurately will get 3 points a piece.

Players can also score bonus points. The first is the Top 5. Each players will predict the winter/spring season's five biggest films. Each rank correctly predicted with score 1 point. An extra bonus of 15 points is given to any player who correctly predicts the Winter/Spring 2016 Top 5 in the correct order. (This has still never been done in the 4+ year history of this game.)

Finally, players predict the answers to ten box office questions. A correct answer scores 2 points.

Ties are broken by who has the lowest total difference between each of their movie predictions and the actual total. Backup movies are in place in case any of the 25 predicted movies change their release date. (Once a movie moves its release date outside our season window, the first backup movie listed comes into play.) Box office questions will only be voided if the movie with the release date change is specifically mentioned in the question, so be careful when crafting your answers.

Ready?
Fill out the form below and paste in this thread / PM it to me by January 7th, 2016 at 11:59 PM CST. Good luck! :thumbsup:

To be clear on this one - I'm counting Barbershop 2: Back in Business as this movie's predecessor (not Beauty Shop).

By the way, it is absurd how many horror films are scheduled during these months. A lot of them are long-delayed (the Amityville reboot, Before I Wake). And Paramount seems incredibly reluctant to ever...advertise Rings.

Ya... I felt reluctant to include it in that box office question due to its chances of being delayed, but then again, it would feel weird without it in there.

Its X Men, it won't do less than Kingsman.
Unless it were horrible of course.

But I really just feel a breakout from it. I don't think a 50 OW is out of the question.

So unpredictable all these games. Hopefully I'm more on it this time around than this winter's horrific showing.
