Box Office Top 20 - Fall 2016

Postby BanksIsDaFuture » July 25th, 2016, 11:29 am

Announcing the third annual Fall Edition of the Box Office Top 20 contest (we skipped 2015), which is a variation of the box office top 20 game we play every spring. The primary difference is that we'll be picking films in September instead of January, which means there are still a lot of question marks about next summer's films, so this will be a good test of long-term prognostication skills.

I made one minor change to the rules this year, which is that anyone picking films from September or early October needs to submit their list TEN DAYS before that movie opens, so start thinking about your slates!

THE RULES

Each player must choose what they think will be the Top 20 grossing films, in order, between September 2016 and August 2017. The winner will be determined by total cumulative box office.

In case of a tie where two players have picked the same 20 films, order will be used as a tiebreaker, so be careful when ranking your picks.

Each player also can pick 2 "bench" films. This means that if any of the films in your Top 20 gets bumped past August 2015, your bench picks will be used as replacements. Make sure to order your bench films correctly (i.e. your #1 bench film will be the first picked if a Top 20 choice loses its date). If three of your movies get bumped you’ll only have 19 films on your slate, so choose wisely

Winners will be announced at the end of September 2017, to give films that open in August a fighting chance.

The final deadline for entries is midnight EST September 30th.

If you want to pick a film from September or early October, you must submit your list by midnight EST ten days before the film opens. This is to ensure no one is taking advantage of tracking numbers or early reviews, since this is supposed to be a game of long-term prognostication. Therefore, anyone who wants to pick The Magnificent Seven has to have their list submitted by September 13th at midnight EST.

Once you submit your list it can't be changed, so if you submit a list on September 15th and one of your films gets bumped on September 16th, you'll have already used up one of your bench picks.

I'll be tabulating the final scores and doing occasional updates throughout the year, roughly once per month or whenever a major date change affects the game.

Good luck, and choose wisely.

Thought I'd bring this back, after we skipped it last year. Same rules as last time, posting it now so I wouldn't forget as it gets closer.

Had to come back and take a peek at this. Looking at my list I'll put Magnificent 7 in my top 20. The picks for next summer are way harder to make.

If anyone wants Sully, please submit by tomorrow night. I'm fine with some leeway there, since it's so early.

Sure, I think that's allowed, although you'd think Disney would confirm any movie they have coming out in 9 months.
