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.

We'll have prizes for one premium member and a non-premium winner (a month of premium).

Next up: CIVIL WAR!

Sounds like people like this movie!

The rules are pretty simple.

1. Guess how much money Captain America: Civil War: For Some Reason We're Not Calling This An Avengers Movie 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 Wednesday/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 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 from my desk! I don't know what yet because I'm at home and not at work! It'll be something fun, maybe. The closest non-Premium member will get a month 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.)

I do have the winners of the last BOWL ready to go, but they're in a .txt file on my work computer; I'll update this post when I head back tomorrow to let them know they've won.

I keep forgetting this isn't out in the US yet. I saw it last weekend in Korea. It's good.

I just averaged everyone else's guesses, so this pretty much has to be correct.
