The Rules:
Those of us who have been part of FML for a while know that there are times where playing an empty screen could be beneficial to your cineplex. In this game, it is absolutely necessary to have at least one empty screen. The object of this game is to get your cineplex as close to $0 for the week as possible. There are several ways to do this:

Screen 1 movie that makes $14 million, with 7 empty screens

Screen 2 movies (or 2 of the same movie) that make a total of $12 million, with 6 empty screens

Screen 3 movies (of any combination) that make a total of $10 million, with 5 empty screens

Screen 4 movies (of any combination) that make a total of $8 million, with 4 empty screens

Screen 5 movies (of any combination) that make a total of $6 million, with 3 empty screens

Screen 6 movies (of any combination) that make a total of $4 million, with 2 empty screens

Screen 7 movies (of any combination) that make a total of $2 million, with 1 empty screen

The box office total of the movies you screen will be added up (NOT including any Best Performer bonuses), $2 million will be subtracted for each empty screen, and the absolute value of the total will be your total for the week. So if your cineplex total is negative, then the amount it is below $0 will be your total for the week.

The overall standings will be decided by the average of all weeks participated in. You will need to participate in 10 weeks of the season in order to be eligible for the final standings list. Missed weeks will result in a penalty score for the week equal to 150% of the average score of all participating players that week.

The deadline for entries will be Friday/Saturday at 1 AM ET (10 PM PT); the Google Form will lock at that time.

GOOD LUCK, and thanks for playing!

    Not to rush anyone, but when do we see the results from week 1? Since I've never played before, I'm a bit anxious to see how I did...
