Summer Movie Wager 2016

May 10, 2016



SUMMER MOVIE WAGER SCORING
  • # 1 or # 10 dead-on gets you 13 points each.
  • 10 points for # 2-9 dead-on
  • 7 points if your pick was only one spot away 
  • 5 points if it was two spots away
  • 3 points if your pick is anywhere in the Top 10
  • 1 point for each dark horse that makes it into the Top 10

It's time for our FOURTH ANNUAL Summer Movie Wager! Sarah C. won our first go around with 49 points in 2013, Patrick D. was our second Wager with 56 points! Last year, special guest Alex B. at cinefilesreviews.com, who can also be found on twitter at @TheAlexBrannan, joined us and won it all with 51 points! Take a look back at how happy Patrick was with that trophy, in 2014!
So happy! So proud! As he SHOULD be!
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.

Movie Insider has an impeccably updated list films coming out between May 6th and September 5th, of 2016 (the films within the Summer Movie Wager eligibility), and we also recommend NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour for more information about all of these films. If we have a tie this is how the Summer Movie Wager tie-breaker works: 1) getting 1 and/or 10 correct, 2) the number of dead-on picks from 2 thru 10, 3)  the number of picks only one spot away, 4) the number of picks only two spots away, 5) most correct picks including Dark Horses, and 6) box office of highest pick not in the summer’s top 10! If after this, everything is still tied, then the winner’s trophy will be shared! Now that the deadline has passed, here are your participants and their lists, for the Trivia Club's Summer Movie Wager 2016! Make up your own, and follow along at home! For an update to date TOP TEN, our source will be Box Office Mojo, and the numbers will be taken as of the Tuesday morning after Labour Day weekend!
