It's that time again!

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.

Last time around, we asked people to predict a few movies from the weekend of February 20th, all of which wound up doing fairly poorly, combining for a total of 27.792 million bucks. The winners, according to my estimation, are @kalmia64 on the premium side, with a guess of $28 million, and @kubqo on the non-premium side with a guess of $25.6 million. (Note again that the rules for this disqualify any posts that are edited after they're posted.) Congratulations! Kubqo wins two months of premium while kalmia64 will net himself a super-special prize of: an XL-sized Giant Bomb East shirt. Is that his/her size? Who knows! It's what I have on my desk.

Next up: Furious 7.

The rules are pretty simple.

1. Guess how much money Furious 7 will make in its opening weekend in the U.S. We'll count all the money it makes through the Sunday after it comes out, 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).

2. Make your guesses as a reply to this thread, and make sure that they're in by Thursday 4/2 at 9 PM PST/Midnight EST/whatever crazy clock time you have in your crazy timezone. I won't count anything after that. IMPORTANT NOTE: Any post that is labelled as "edited" will be disqualified. If you want to change your vote, delete your original post and make a new one, up until the time limit. Just don't make a million posts trying to read the tea leaves; keep it to two or three at most.

3. The winners will be determined the Monday or Tuesday after the weekend ends, when actual box office figures are released at boxofficemojo.com, or whenever I get around to it. 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 something cool I'll figure out tomorrow and edit in here. 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.)

First of all, thank you for the prize, i totally forgot i did this so victory it came as a surprise when i came to this thread.

As for Furious 7, i think it will be along the lines of 6th movie, but this is the first big blockbuster of the year, so people will be hungry for movies(also Easter)and my guess is: 106.5 mil.
