It's that time again!

the cgi in this looks like it cost a lot of money
the cgi in this looks like it cost a lot of money

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 Pacific Rim: Uprising 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).

There haven’t been a huge amount of reviews for this so far, but as of this writing it looks like it’s just cracking in at a Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I don’t have any real intention of seeing it in the theaters, not having been the biggest fan of Pacific Rim, but I hope it’s good! I may get out and see Unsane, just because I like Steven Soderbergh a bunch, but that was shot on iPhones so maybe I’ll just wait on that as well. Obviously Sherlock Gnomes requires no introduction.

2. Make your guesses as a reply to this thread, and make sure that they're in by Thursday 3/22 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 Winners:

I neglected to realize that Black Panther was opening on a three-day weekend, so I only counted up the stuff from Friday - Sunday!

Doesn't really seem like a lot of buzz for this thing and it still has to compete with Black Panther.

The first was a bit of a box office dud right? This one's got the advantage of having Star Wars Moses in it though.
