    The Summer is here, and that means it's blockbuster time yet again!

    Listen up Cantina Patrons. This is your chance to show off your skills! The best part is, there is no buy-in for this game. Join any time. So weather you plan on using the force, a time Turner, or had the audacity to drive at 88mph to gaze into the future, keep in mind that it is always in motion and subject change. A special prize (to be announced once we decide what the prize will be) will be awarded to the Cantina user with the highest score at the end of the Summer (Sep is the last month in our game)

    May the force be with you.

    All you have to do is give us your box office predictions in USD (U.S. money). For the purposes of this game, we will using the number in the picture below from Box Office Mojo. Please vote on whether or not we should use Price is Right Rules. The poll will end in 7 days.

    Capture.PNG

    For those who do not know what price is right rules are, it simply means that the person who gets the closest to the actual figure, WITHOUT going over will be declared the winner. Even if that person states the lowest possible figure which will be set at $1.

    Rules:
    1. You can submit your best prediction as early in advance as you wish.
    2. No changing your answer without a moderator approval. (we can see whenever you modify a post. And also see the history)
    3. Your guess should be submitted before the beginning of the opening weekend. (Thursday at the latest)
    4. No 2 answers should be the same. If you see someone has already predicted that Warcraft for instance, will get $35mil you may not put the same answer. However, you Can say $35,000,001
    5. Anyone can join the bidding at any time. (unless you have been prohibited from playing in the Casino Cantina)
    6. All predictions should be in USD.
    7. We will be using US Domestic numbers and not international figures
    8. Limit conversation in the thread, to help it from becoming cluttered.
    9. No acronyms will be accepted. If you want credit, spell it out. I don't want to accidentally make a mistake of misreading your prediction.
    10. All bets must be in by Friday, September 30th.

    Check back later for an updated rule list. Things may change as we see what works, and what doesn't.

    How to win
    1st place: 15 points.
    2nd place: 10 points.
    3rd place: 5 points.

    Points will be awarded for each prediction closest to the weekend box office report. Meaning, you could potentially win 45 points (or more) each week. Hopefully with a point system like this, it won't be impossible to catch up if you fall behind.

    I'm more confident in Finding Dory making $1.3 Billion worldwide with $751 Million US & ID4 (2) flopping by making roughly $355 Million US & Suicide quad grossing $655 Million US

    If you are playing the game please state your answers more clearly.

    For example

    Finding Dory: 750 mil
    Suicide squad: $655mil

    Also, we are only talking opening weekend. Friday, Saturday, Sunday. So you might want to try agian . :)

    If your not playing, please limit conversation in this tread. It makes it easier on me when I go counting up the points for everyone.

    Ooohhh...this looks like fun.
    Is the intent to do this on a weekly basis or 2 movies for the whole summer?

    I read it as pick two each week. But @AstromechRecords picked two for the entire summer. Just trying to make sure I have it down.

    With that kind of star power, CI should easily stand to make double or triple that at roughly $37M .

    Don't you think that Dory seems a bit low for an estimate? I'd hedge my bets that it will make around $175M opening weekend. It looks to be like another Toy Story 3
