    OK THEN LETS DO THIS STAR WARS.

    300 Credits that The Rise of Skywalker will have a bigger box office over its run then AVENGERS ENDGAME at the U.K. BOX OFFICE.

    & pleas for @DarthSnow sanity all bet must be the same the poor guy has had a tough enough week with out adding to his problems :).

    HAVE HIGHLIGHTED THE U.K. as it’s this BOX OFFICE the wager applies to

    NOT USA OR WORLDWIDE TOTAL BOX OFFICE.

    300 credits says no that TROS won't be a bigger BO success than ENDGAME but close.

    This is going to be a good one!

    I know you specified "over its run" as opposed to just opening weekend, my only concern is if one has a much longer stay at the BO than the other. As long as they stay in cinemas for roughly the same amount of time, there shouldn't be a problem.

    Fair enough but as they are both major blockbusters I would have thought they would have roughly the same amount of time at the cinema but if TROS hasn’t beaten ENDGAME by say 7 - 8 weeks I would concede that I had lost this wager.

    Yeah, I'm sure we'll be fine to just let it play out on its own.

    That being said, with our luck they will be within thousands of each other and one will have a 2 week longer run and we'll forever be stuck in Wager Purgatory
    :D

    You're a crazy man @Addi Ras... I'm all up for our UK meet up for this film along with the dustbin @Maximus, but 300 says Endgame trounces TROS! :D

    he truly is.. you'd have to be utterly bonkers to join him on that bet.

    So tros will run from Dec19 until March 20. and Endgame won't run during it's run, so of cause tros will have the bigger boxoffice during its run.
    But although it probably I willfully misread the wager I bet anyway 300 ¢ on rots being bigger than ae in the UK (but being from the EU, what do I know what to expect from the UK) @DarthSnow

    Do you bet to win? I thought it's just for the fun of it and to get rid of this incredible amount of credits.

    I like crazy bets and have creds to spend; I'm in! :D

    @DarthSnow, I bet 300 credits that The Rise of Skywalker will beat Avengers: Endgame at the UK box office :)

    (I still have to wire the credits to Wuher, right? Or is DarthSnow running everything now?)

    You can wire it to me, wouldn't make a difference for you at the end anyway. But I get my money back.

    Yes! Wuher is the bank, I'm just the bookie. :cool:

    And in @Maximus' case, that's usually where the credits end up staying.
