    Mine were just suggestions of what i might guess if i wanted to be wrong. those numbers you posted were my really guess spot on. I am just trying to figure out how you knew them. Yes those were my numbers and no one should ever look back and see my suggestions. Also we will never talk about this again. Look over there it a spiderman......

    just waiting on the estimated Matrix and King’s Man numbers to be confirmed, as well as work out what happened to Tender Bar which seems to have no numbers at all and then I’ll gift wrap the final results!

    I've looked high and low for Tender Bar and nothing but reviews from two weeks ago, but zero box office take ins. Weird.

    I am confident it will be me. But then again, overconfidence is my weakness.

    Here we are then folks... (belatedly, after the festive season morphed directly into Covid season in the Lazarus bunker :rolleyes:) ...FINAL SCORES!!

    First point of order... we shall not speak about The Tender Bar which, for reasons unknown, seems to have evaporated with nowt so much as a word.

    Final box office for The Matrix Resurrections is still yet to be confirmed on IMDB after a week... but given that the nearest anyone guessed was still $19.5m out it's a moot point and continues our failure to place an accurate guess (after last week's Spidey) on what was expected to be the biggest release of the week!

    The Matrix Resurrections $22.5m
    1. :D
    2. :D :D
    3. :D :D :D

    Sing 2 $39.55m
    1. @Addi Ras +15
    2. @Lazarus Dei +10
    3. @Angelman +5

    The King's Man $9.58m
    1. @NinjaRen +15
    2. @RockyRoadHux +10
    3. @Bluemilk +5

    A Journal for Jordan $2.2m
    1. @Meister Yoda +15
    2. @Bluemilk +10
    3. @RockyRoadHux +5

    American Underdog $5.89m
    1. @Bluemilk +15
    2. @RockyRoadHux +10
    3. @NinjaRen +5


    Meaning that for yet more unfathomable reasons the previous table-topper and the dog/man who has largely dominated this entire game, @Anubis78, failed to score anything in this round and in doing so loses out to The Senate at the final hurdle!

    FINAL STANDINGS
    1 @Bluemilk 255 +30
    2 @Anubis78 235 +0
    3 @Meister Yoda 230 +15
    4 @Lazarus Dei 210 +10
    5 @RockyRoadHux 195 +25
    6 @NinjaRen 180 +20
    7 @Angelman 120 +5
    8 @Addi Ras 70 +15
    9 @DarthSnow 5 +0

    [​IMG]

    So, congratulations to @Bluemilk - Winner of the 2021 Box Office Challenge!

    and also to @Angelman - Winner (Norwegian Division)!​


    Thanks to everyone for playing and if there's interest we'll resurrect this lunacy in Spring 2022 (with more success than fourth The Matrix sequel)!

    Oh wow!

    I'd like to thank Dath Plagues, the Darkside of the force, my over confidence and many, many more things.

    Thank you to Laz for running this shindig and hopefully will this Sprimg as well.

    Thank you to all participants, especially Darth Snow for making this possible.

    Now until Spring I will be hibernatating in the outer realm with another plan up my sleeve

    The Batman aside, it looks like late April/early May before the box office really wakes up from it's winter lull... but be assured that there will indeed be a new game kicking off for 2022 :)
