The Summer Movie Wager is a game popularized by the Totally Rad Show, which uses the rules of TimeTravelReview’s Summer Movie Pool:

The object is to pick the films that you think will be the top-ten grossing films of the summer, in order of box-office performance. That means only films released from the first weekend of May to the Labor Day weekend, counting only the money those films make domestically (US and Canada) in that period. In other words films from March or April might still be making money after May 1st, but they don’t count; films released from May on could start racking up foreign Box Office, but that doesn’t count; films released from May on could still be making money into September, but that doesn’t count either. Box Office numbers are generally available late Monday or Tuesday after the weekend closes. So what you will be doing is figuring out what 10 films will make the most money, and putting them in order of what you think they will gross at the box office. BUT, in addition to your top 10, you get to pick 3 “Dark Horses”- films you think *might* make it, but that you are not confident enough about to put into the top 10 proper.

So we gave everyone who wanted to join in, a chance to rank their Summer Movie Top Ten, plus Three unranked Dark Horse picks!

Firstshowing.net has an impeccably updated list films coming out between May 1st and August 28th, of 2015 (the films within the Summer Movie Wager eligibility), and we also recommend THR for more information about all of these films. Ultimately, however, it is your responsibility as a participant to make sure all the films you choose will be coming out in 2015!
