Box Office Analysts Challenge! Star Trek Edition!

May 9, 2009

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for another Box Office Analysts Challenge! Last week, Gitesh Pandya and Nicole Sperling tied for victory, so congrats to them! This week, I’m going to look at the predictions for both new releases, Star Trek and Next Day Air. It’s going to be a good competition, since the predictions are pretty diverse this week. You should know, all predictions listed here are including the Thursday night showings for Star Trek. I’ll have the results once the weekend is over. Alright, may the best analyst win!

What’s Everyone Else Predicting? Box Office Analysts Unite!

April 10, 2009

It’s high time that someone took the initiative and united all the different box office analysts out there! So many great sites are dedicated to studying the trends of the film industry, and I thought it might be nice to put together a chart of all our various box office predictions each week and see how we compare to one another. I’ve placed some links at the top of the chart, so you can read everyone else’s weekend forecasts. What do you think of this idea?
