Preview numbers for new releases are generally reported for showings on Thursday evening but are rolled into Friday's gross. We are trying to predict what those numbers will be. They are often not reported for smaller films, so those will obviously not count, but if we get a number from what we deem a reliable source, we'll count it for this game. The same goes for preview numbers that include sneak previews from earlier in the week. If we can separate those out, we will. Whenever we get the most solidified number from the actual Thursday evening before release, we'll go with that one.


At the end of the season we will determine a preview predictions champion, and your voice will carry extra weight round these parts on Thursday evenings and early Friday mornings.


Enter your preview predictions for Stuber and Crawl here:

The form will lock at 11 pm Eastern Thursday night.



For any week you miss, a penalty will be assessed so that your score for the missing film(s) is equal to 90% of the median score. Starting on your third missed week, you will start receiving zeroes for every missed week.


Week 5 Recap:
This is the first full week that we were without the presale tracker... and it was chaos. We had a range of almost $13m for our Spider-Man guesses. I don't know what I entered or why. Does this make the game better... or worse? I'm not sure, but we'll continue through this season and see how we feel by the end.


For the time being, only four players received a score other than 0 for their Spider-Man prediction which has shaken up the standings. It's still anyone's game though!


Spider-Man: Far From Home: $2,900,000 (Our Average Guess: $8,561,275 😀)
(the only report I see is Deadline's oddly vague $2.8-3M, so I'm using $2.9M)
Midsommar: $1,100,000 (Our Average Guess: $823,500)


Top 3 SMFFH Guesses:
1) yackback: $3,000,000
2) Furiosa: $3,100,000
3) Snoop D-O-Double G: $3,200,000


Top 3 Midsommar Guesses:
