After two years away it is time for our EIGHTH Blockbuster Movie Wager, and our first YEAR LONG edition after seven Summer Movie Wagers! Sarah C. of Geraldo Triviera won our first go around with 49 points in 2013, Patrick D. of The Bastards was our second Wager winner with 56 points! In 2015, special guest Alex B. at cinefilesreviews.com joined us and won it all with 51 points! Stephane de S. went on to win by less then half a million dollars, and ended up with 60 points in 2016! In 2017, the man that lost by half a million the year before, James C. of The Unusual Suspects won with 58 points! In 2018 Annika M. set the new record for points with 86 points in victory! Then in 2019 the man with the bow-tie, the man writing this blog, Russel H. scored 63 points for the win!

The Summer Movie Wager was a game popularized by the Totally Rad Show, which uses the rules of TimeTravelReview’s Summer Movie Pool, and has now become the BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE WAGER, an all-new Extra Curricular institution and all around fun time for Trivia Club! A whole different kind of animal from the Oscar Confidence Pool and Saturday Night Live Fantasy League!

With the Blockbuster Movie Wager we want you to pick the TWENTY films that you think will be the Top 20 at the Domestic Box Office for the entire year of 2022

At the end of 2022, we will look at the American Domestic Box Office as of January 1st, 2023 according to The-Numbers.com. Meaning that late released in 2022 will only have the remaining days in the year to make money for this exercise. This also means however that all films already released in 2022 can be included in your Top 20 Box Office (hello, The Batman). Look to First Showing for the current release dates. Remember when making your lists, their is the potential for films to be rescheduled for 2023 or to be pushed to streaming.

If we have a tie this is how the Blockbuster Movie Wager tie-breaker works: 1) getting 1, 10, and/or 20 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, and 6) box office of highest pick not in the year's top 20! If after this, everything is still tied, then the winner’s trophy will be shared!
