Play the Top Nine Side Game


The game is simple. Predict the Top Nine movies based on weekend box office earnings. You don't submit projections. Just list nine movies in order. The catch? The deadline is nine days before the weekend you're predicting.


Deadline: 9pm ET on Wednesday, September 18.
Rank the Top Nine movies based on box office earnings for the weekend of September 27-29. Resubmit as often as you'd like before the deadline. I'll use your latest version.


Submit your entry now.


Earn 4 points for each movie you pick that finishes in the Top Nine, regardless of ranking.
Earn 4 bonus points for picking all 9 movies correctly, regardless of ranking.
Lose 1 point for each ranking spot your ranking differs from the actual ranking.
For example, if you pick a movie to finish 9th, and it finishes 6th, you get 4 - 3 = 1 point for that movie.


A movie can't earn negative points. A perfect score is 40 points.
Duplicate movies will be ignored, except for the highest ranked copy.
Results will be based on numbers at BoxOfficeMojo.com.

    You have less than 24 hours to submit your Top Nine entry for Fall Season Week 2. Submit your entry now.


    Congrats to Particular Set of Movie Skills for winning Top Nine for Labor Day Weekend! Click here for full results. Only 2 out of 31 players chose the correct nine films. That was the warmup round and won't count towards Fall Season standings.


    I temporarily updated Fall Season Week 1 with FML pricing order. None of the 31 players picked the current Top Nine films on the FML slate. But we'll find out on Monday whether FML pricing order was accurate. Click here see everyone's picks.
