Post Box Office Draft 2015 - Group 2
Welcome to the 2015 Box Office Draft. This is the draft order for this group:

1. zwackerman
2. MGKC
3. SolC9
4. Kenspy
5. Flava'd
6. axiom_
7. Viper Rodgers
8. Corpse


Google Spreadsheet to follow the draft (this is able to be edited by anyone): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 2017844194

Rules

1. 8 players will take turns drafting movies for 10 rounds. A total of 80 2015 films will be drafted. Whoever has the highest gross for their films wins!

2. You have 6 hours to make your pick, or you will be skipped. This will not apply to the 1st round to make sure that everyone gets to make their first pick. Hours between 11pm and 8am EST do not count towards the 6 hour time limit. As long as you check the thread once a day, you'll be fine.

3. After you make your pick, please PM the next person who drafts after you to let them know that it is their turn. If Joe Bob drafts after you, send a short PM with something to the effect of "hey you're up in the draft." Alternatively, if you're not going to be around for a while, you can let the person who picks after you know what movie you want picked and they can draft for you to keep the thread moving, "Hey Joe Bob, not going to be around for a couple of days, please pick Jaws for me with my next pick."

4. If a film later gets moved to 2016 or does not have a theatrical release, you may switch it out for a film that wasn't drafted, for a $10m penalty.

This will be a snake draft, with the order being as follows:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

For instance, Corpse will submit two picks the first time Corpse is up (last pick of the first round, and 1st pick of the 2nd round).

Finally, there will be a penalty on two films: $300m will be subtracted from Avengers II's total gross, and $175m will be subtracted from Star Wars VII's total gross.

zwackerman is on the clock and has been PMed....

How long does this usually take? Because at this rate, we won't finish before 2015.

Not in the first round. But I guess it should pick up once the time limit is in place. But I hate waiting!

I figured Avengers would go next. It was a tough choice picking Minions over Avengers. Especially since I picked Dragon 2 in the last draft and that killed me. But Minions are huge right now, merchandising is huge, and Despicable Me 2 made 368M and then sold over 9 million copies since its release on DVD/Blu Ray. I don't see a lot of room for growth for Avengers, so after the penalty I think it makes around 300M. I think Minions can beat that. My one worry is Inside Out releasing 3 weeks earlier. But I think Minions will hurt it more than it hurts Minions.

Bold pick...thought about Spectre. Will probably have the most hype ever for a Bond movie.

Jurassic and Inside Out have higher ceilings and lower floors. I figured Spectre was a safe bet for atleast ~$250M due to the humongous opening it will have.

I thought Kenspy said the first round picks are given more time to make sure the biggest movies are spread out appropriately.

Should I pick my two films now, or wait for Viper?

Why would we give him Jurassic World? We should give him Mortdecai.

Post Re: Box Office Draft 2015 - Group 2
I have to pick 2 films since I'm 8th, and would rather do so than be bumped up to 7th...

He hasn't been on for 4 days, though, so I'll go ahead and choose. If I get one film, I'll choose Cinderella. If I'm still in 8th position, I'll choose both Cinderella and Furious 7.

So giving him Jurassic World may not be a problem unless he doesn't want it. IDK!

Yeah you're fine to pick. We'll give him until noon tomorrow before we skip him again. I'll look for a substitute player in the meantime.

Alright, so if he comes on before noon tomorrow and picks one of the 3 films (Cinderella, Furious 7, Jurassic World) I mentioned, give me the other 2 remaining films. If he chooses a different film, then I'll choose Cinderella and Furious 7. And if I end up with picking just one film, it's Cinderella.

That should move things along for a bit. :P
