    Hey @DarthSnow - I’m properly late this week thanks to being distracted by various festive shenanigans with the family going on this weekend, so I’m not going to push my luck and post this late.

    Dumb luck too as it’s a weekend which could shake up a lot of the league table!

    If I had, the $50.50m you threw at Jumanji is where I’d have gone for sure... in fact I think you’ve rumbled my numeracy style with several of your predictions.

    Good luck everyone!

    This is a tough one. So easy to be out of the $10m range.
    The Blockbuster $241.2m Because the sum of digits is IX
    Cats $9.81m Because cats like to fall with exactly that acceleration.

    December 13th - December 15th Results:

    Black Christmas $ 4,240,245
    1. @Maximus - $9m
    2. @Meister Yoda - $9.81m
    3. @Bluemilk - $10m
    Jumanji $ 59,251,543
    1. @Bluemilk - $55m
    2. @Anubis78 - $65m
    3. @DarthSnow - $50.50m
    Richard Jewell $ 4,680,124
    1. @Anubis78 - $5.6m
    2. @Maximus - $3.5m
    3. @Bluemilk - $7m

    Bombshell was apparently only a limited release (as was Uncut Gems). I wish there was a way to know this beforehand, but I haven't been able to tell since BoxOfficeMojo changed their format and excludes certain information such as theater counts pre-release.

    Guesses for Uncut Gems were a lot closer than Bombshell, so I'm still deciding how to score these.*
    I'll include these with next week's update after some thinking. Thanks for your patience!

    FYI:
    Uncut Gems - $ 537,242 - 5 Theaters
    Bombshell - $ 317,014 - 4 Theaters

    *My initial thoughts are to score Uncut Gems as is, and to carry over Bombshell to this week since it appears that it is getting its wide release this week. Or we can just wait to see what both do this weekend. Input is appreciated!


    Leaderboard:
    @Meister Yoda - 470 (+10)
    @Maximus - 345 (+25)
    @DarthSnow - 290 (+5)
    @Lazarus Dei - 285
    @NinjaRen - 240
    @Bluemilk - 215 (+25)
    @RockyRoadHux - 200
    @Anubis78 - 160 (+25)

    @Addi Ras - 125

    My gut instinct is to take uncut gems where it is, and carry over bombshell until it reaches 5m :D

    lol.. I can’t advise here Snowy. whatever you do is always golden with us all bro ;)

    He did! Overall Uncut Gems was much more accurately predicted than Bombshell. Also, I don't believe Uncut Gems is going wide next week. Which is why I wanted to leave that where it is, but take Bombshell #'s from this weekend if it is indeed a true wide release. Most likely that is where we'll end up but the floor is still open to discussion.

    As someone who was way out again with there guess then & we have some close guesses to Uncut Gems then sure take them for this week & roll BOMBSHELL over too next week.
