It's that time again!

Box Office Winner's League: Black Panther - Off-Topic
i a cat

If any of you were around for the old days at Screened, you'll recall that we used to run a contest called Box Office Winners League when we got the feeling to do so. It's a simple premise: guess how much money a movie is going to make in a given weekend, and if you're the closest guess, you win! There's a bit of skill in it, since box office is roughly predictable, and there are tracking companies that are paid quite a bit to do so, but there's also a lot of luck, since almost no one is able to consistently guess a box office weekend with any degree of accuracy or precision.

The rules are pretty simple.

1. Guess how much money the movie Black Panther will make in its opening weekend in the U.S. We'll count all the money it makes through next Monday, which includes the Thursday night previews. Just throw it in as a reply to this post, e.g.: $56.79 million (be as specific as you like).

The movie so far is getting great reviews, like most Marvel joints, and I’ve seen estimates that the opening weekend could be over 150 million! Who knows! It’s a crazy world out there!

2. Make your guesses as a reply to this thread, and make sure that they're in by Thursday 11/16 at 9 PM PST/Midnight EST/whatever crazy clock time you have in your crazy timezone. I won't count anything after that. DON'T EDIT YOUR POSTS IF YOU CHANGE YOUR GUESS! Just delete it and make a new post. I won't consider anything that has been edited.

3. The winners will be determined next Monday or Tuesday, when actual box office figures are released at boxofficemojo.com. Weekend estimates are often released on Sunday afternoon, but we'll wait for the real numbers to determine a winner. I'll compare that number to see who's closest; over or under doesn't matter. In case of any ties, I'll decide between the entries with either a coin flip or some other randomized method.

4. There'll be two winners. The closest Premium member will win six extra months of Premium access! The closest non-Premium member will get two months of Premium access.

That's pretty much it! Go forth and prosper, or something. I'll reserve the right to change any of these rules as I see fit before the deadline, but I doubt that'll be necessary. (Don't be a dick and make it necessary, in other words.)

PREVIOUS BOWL ENTRY WINNERS:

Premium: Both @sweep and @bollard got pretty close, with guesses around .5 million off of Justice League’s final weekend total, but Sweep already gets free Premium for being a mod, so Bollard is the winner here!

Non-Premium: @kiwikuku

$128,377,00

I feel like I’m going way high, as boxofficemojo barely lists any February openings whatsoever (and the best before-blockbuster-season movie ever seems to be that American Sniper crap at like $90M)

Seems like only ensemble universe crossing ones do so well, as that cringe inducing (Ben) Affleck commercial VS Superman movie did so much better than the acclaimed Wonder Woman. So looking at what obscure one-hero movies do (like Thor on the upper end and Ant Man on the bottom end) and adjust for a bad time of year, seems like it’s gonna be in the low 100’s.
