    Quick reminder to players submitting guesses this week - only Candyman is getting a full general release. The Colony and Rushed are both limited, so are highly unlikely to make mega-bucks!

    And the numbers plucked from the air in Laz-land are...

    Candyman $7.77m
    Rushed $0.77m
    The Colony $1.77m

    @Meister Yoda - does that mean you're guessing $8 million or just $8 dollars? ;)
    I guess they thought about it too much!?

    So here's a thing... there's NO box office reports for either Rushed or The Colony (Tides), so this weeks results are only based on the Candyfella's results

    Aug 27th:

    The Colony Unreported
    Rushed Unreported
    Candyman - $22.0m


    1 @Anubis78 35 +5
    2 @NinjaRen 20 +15
    = @Lazarus Dei 20
    4 @RockyRoadHux 10 +10
    5 @Addi Ras 5
    6 @Angelman 0
    =
    @Meister Yoda 0


    Question for all of you playing would you rather:
    a) stick with guessing on Limited releases some weeks (which it looks like we may not actually get info on), or
    b) just go with Wide releases plus takings for an existing release to ensure there's always at least 3 films per week?

    I'm really interested on how Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will do this weekend with the erratic box office. Hats off to anyone that gets it right!

    I would say go with pretty wide releases. OTOH it doesn't matter how I don't get any points.

    Given how well we've done so far, I reckon you should chuck some credits at @Wuher and join in too :D


    Cool, unless there's any objections then I'll update the releases list and re-work things to be new wide releases (plus existing ones if too few new in a given week)
