So Arrival is expanding to 1,100 this weekend.. .and we don't get a chance to play it.
Manchester will hit about 1,500, which should make it a great play.
Things will be shaken up regardless:

    Based on a few numbers and a lot of speculation, I'm sitting on 3 ADP and 4 LLL with a blank. :P

    Even with the LLL expansion, what is it thought to make? 10M? Play it 7 times that gets you to $70M and the BP bonus and it still comes up way short of 100M which seem the be the lowest number for a weekly winner. How does that make LLL a lock for BP? It seems to me that you should be guessing at your theater getting over 100M and not really worry about the BP. Another question, has there been a PC without one screen selection of the BP?

    I'm continuing to look for raw dollars in Awards Season. I'm trying to take as many safe bets as possible. Right now I'm thinking 1xHF, 6, LLL, 1xMbts but those dogs are scaring me.

    Minion you yourself got PC in week 2 this season that was only 73m. The total value of the PC Is 100% reliant on pricing and this week 100m is almost out of the question.. almost. You shouldn't worry about the total value of the cineplex, only the cost efficiency

    @whitewomen. That is 1 out of 8. I don't bank on those odds when betting (and yes this is a form or betting ). 100M should always be what you are shooting for in my opinion.

    A week like this, unless ADP or LLL really explodes, there likely is no way to get to 100M just based on the low numbers. It's the calm before the storm.

    I'm with whitewomen on this $100M nonsense argument. This game has nothing to do with total box office. It only has to do with FML BUX and how much they make relative to cost.
