    Actually @Bluemilk I have posted your entire history of guesses and have done a statistical regression analysis, and determined upper and lower control limits for your guessing pattern. I then developed an algorithm to determine my guesses based upon that...…

    …..and if you believe all that I've got some swampland in Florida to sell you.....

    ;)

    I actually just realized that these films open up TOMORROW on WEDNESDAY Nov 21. Sorry for the short notice, I didn't think about it being a holiday release week!
    Please do your best to get picks in asap, and remember that you are predicting a holiday 5 day opening weekend as opposed to 3!

    Finally... Happy Thanksgiving everyone! :)

    Hey @Lock_S_Foils - Is that how the TG weekend works, counting from release day until Sunday? You guys love to confuse things for us offshore types!
