Update for the Summer Season: Scoring will now be based on the % of the gross that your range represents. 20% is equal to the full gross of the movie. A larger range earns you a progressively smaller score (25% range = 95% of gross) and a smaller range earns you a progressively larger score (15% range = 105% of gross). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
Deadline this season is 3pm ET.

Power Ranks (Katniss)
For missed weeks I will use your Pred Comp numbers to calculate your ranks with a 50 point penalty. If you did not enter Pred Comp then you will receive the default penalty of worst score plus 1.

Theatre Count Prediction Competition (Plexy)
How many theatres do you think a movie will open with/retain for the upcoming weekend?
LOCK for this game has changed to WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT MIDNIGHT EASTERN! The form will close automatically.
Eleven players knocked in five runs while only five players avoided the double play known as Dark Phoenix. Only one player missed the Home Run (Dog's Journey), but everyone that did play it was able to reach it in their batting lineup! Great first week everyone!Jun 12, 2019, 10:37am PDT

Summer 19-1 Top 5:Jun 12, 2019, 11:54am PDTEdited
Good job to half the players for nabbing perfect weeks! @serbastian lead the way with a PC and all 60 BP points.
9 players bagged $500 by playing the PC, while the value leader standings are crowded with 15 who screened $A Dog's Journey to an eye-popping 549k value (with the BP bonus included).
Both are a long season, so keep plugging away. If you missed out last week you can still hop in and play effectively in both games from here thru the end of the season!Jun 12, 2019, 12:46pm PDT
