    Hi @Rogues1138... I think your predictions are for each of the releases for the next 4wks - all you need for this week is your DSMM one and a guess for the other two shown above ;)

    I see what you did there... :D


    Ok, so the predictions from the LD-verse are:

    Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness 167.8m
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 6.78m
    The Northman 4.56m

    Oh master of the Box Office game @Lazarus Dei …..

    I had a question that you have seemed to answer. Are we allowed to go down several decimal places on our guesses? Like if I wanted to guess $45,678,345.59 that would be ok? Or am I overthinking this whole thing, and I need a shot of brandy? (Can u assist @Addi Ras ?) LOL…..

    I can’t help with the brandy as I’m a strictly Whisky man :) but personally I wouldn’t guess in less then $1000 chunks.

    indeed… very rarely does going to such a level of detail make a difference. If we’re counting in thousands or millions of dollars 2 decimals down should be enough… perhaps 3 at a stretch

    I’m not saying you can’t go overboard, more why would you?? ;)

    So, just Dr. Strange this week? After watching Dr. Strange I might change my BO prediction my audience cheered and clapped at certain points... I'll keep it as is.

    Some weeks don't have enough new releases to give us the usual 3-movies per week range, so we backfill by using the weekend's takings for a couple of films already on release.

    So, this week's guesses are based on Doctor Strange (Opening Weekend), Sonic (5th weekend) and The Northman (3rd weekend)

    It's all run off Box Office Mojo figures which normally get published Mon/Tue for the most recent weekend, like this:
