    Dang, The Sister Brothers opened to a limited release. Did it even open wide enough to be counted yet?
    Fairly sure this week will be as wide as it gets.

    That's a shame. It's got quite a few big name actors in its cast, and I got the trailer quite a number of times, so I figured it'd be a bigger release than that.

    Woo!

    Thanks, Skitch for doing it!

    And whew, Winston you came about as close as I feared. If those late wild cards of Smallfoot and Night School had each made even $8 mill more, I woulda been toast.

    Great job, all!

    Third place is good enough for me!

    Besides, I'll always have first place from a few years ago.

    Oof, true.

    To think I really considered picking that instead of The Hustle (which was then delayed, and I opted for The Happytime Murders vs. round average). I even had predicted Action Point to make $38 million, around these wildly off guesses:

    Quote Quoting Henry Gale (view post)
    The Hustle - $40
    The House With a Clock In Its Walls - $39
    Action Point - $38
    A Simple Favour - $37

    By the way, when making that post, I noticed that Ezee was over-credited for Operation Finale, which only made about $17 million. The only reason this matters is because it means I wasn't last.

    There was one movie (I cant remember which now) that was stopped short of daily numbers but had weekly. It was confusing and didn't add a lot to total or change top outcome so I just went with weekly. BOM can be weird sometimes, but theyre so good the vast majority of the time I don't feel I should bitch too much.

    I didnt cap on anything - just proves the importance of avoiding sub-20 m bombs and getting at least one surprise 100 m hit.
