Obsessive Viewer’s Summer Box Office Challenge 2016

findingdory

So, for the first time in Obsessive Viewer history, my podcast cohosts and I are putting ourselves through a Summer Box Office Challenge. The inaugural Summer B.O. Challenge was covered extensively in yesterday’s podcast episode (OV166 – Summer Box Office Challenge 2016). But, in case you’re not the podcast type, I decided to throw our selections into a blog post for the website.

Here you’ll find a breakdown of the rules, the stakes, and the scoring method that will be used when the results are tallied in September. You’ll also find our selections. Don’t be afraid to let us know how utterly wrong you think we are.

Rules

The objective is to correctly guess the top ten box office results for the summer movie season (May 1st – Labor Day) and to correctly guess the domestic box office gross for each movie in the top ten.

Scoring

  • Movie Makes the Top Ten – 1 point
  • Correctly Guessed Number Placement – 2 points
  • Correctly Guessed Number One Movie – 3 points
  • Correctly Guessed Number Ten Movie – 2 points
  • Correctly Guessed Gross Within $10m Without Going Over – 3 points 
  • Bonus: Guessed the Movie – 1 point
  • Bonus: Guessed the Amount/Percentage – 1 point

Stakes

The winner (determined after Labor Day) will choose a movie (no limitations or restrictions) for all of us to watch and we have to review it on the podcast.
