    About House of Gucci...I think we might have guessed too high, but Ninja and I are really looking forward to this one, because Adam Driver ...and Lady Gaga is killing it. Not going to change our numbers although I would be surprised if we make any points!

    In good BO results we trust! But we are rather low compared to some other users. Okay, we are in the middle.

    House of Gucci and Matrix. These are the next two movies I can't wait for.

    Yeah, it's an odd one to predict - yes there's a long weekend, but people are spending time together and there's Ghostbusters which only released a week ago.
    I'm playing low ball too...

    Handbag - $9.89m
    Raccoon - $8.98m
    Magic stuff - $19.89m
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 24, 2021, Original Post Date: Nov 24, 2021 ---
    As you two are duking it out for the top spot @Bluemilk and @Anubis78, make sure you've got your predictions for the long weekend in by the end of today ;)

    Be semi-surprised @RockyRoadHux - it turns out you didn't guess high enough, but you were right that you didn't make any points on it! :D


    So, the low-ball doesn't always work out! It seems that the holiday weekend was kind to the box office and managed to pull a few surprises! In 5 days Ridley Scott's House of Gucci managed to pull more than double the dollars that his other recent release (The Last Duel) has managed in 45 days... and while the latest attempt to bring the Resident Evil universe to the screen was more in line with expectation, Disney's Encanto was the weekend's biggest hitter and means that only The Senate was even within the +/-10m range with it's takings prediction!

    And finally, The Senate usurps the Big Dog to take the top spot... but can he hold on for the final 4 weeks of the game?

    After having seen a few reviews I must say that I am not so keen on watching this one anymore. Last Duel might have been the better Ridley Scott movie after all this year.
