Last Week's Results

The revisionist fairy tale Snow White and the Huntsman proved to be a potent force at the weekend box office, handily sinking last week's #1 film Men in Black 3. Against Prometheus next weekend, I think Snow White will probably drop mightily.

  2. Men in Black 3, $28,075,210

    • Did it from my phone this week. Not recommended

    • Also, my simple mind struggles with the different guess ranges.

      I am always having to look at the rules

      For future contests, I recommend:
      >50: 5M
      47.5 – 25: 2.5
      24 – 10: 1.0
      9.5 – 5: 0.5
      4.9 – 1: 0.1
      0.9>: 0.1
      I’ve always had a mathematical mind
      Take it with a grain of salt. But the increment
      Is always 10% of the low number of its respective range for
      Anything higher than 1M. It would be easier
      For me, maybe not others. Just my two cents. Not trying to
      Tell you how to operate, this just makes more sense to me
      Itherwise, fun time. Thank you
