Welcome to The Game Where You Try to Score Zero Dollars!
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 Summer season in order to be eligible for the final standings list. The deadline for entries will be Friday at 1 AM ET (10 PM PT); the Google Form will lock at that time. I will be posting my guess as a reply to this thread before the deadline so everyone else can see it.
Week Six recap coming....
WeekFive recap...posted below so I can copy the format. :P : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WwwWKq90cri04tdSvQq0AycckXvWwcJu8uEffZTXUmo/edit?usp=sharing
Basically, everyone sucked this week...some just sucked harder than others. It was also a bit of a separation week, as many of the week's top 10 were already in the season top 10, so they've just helped cement their positions a bit more. Puss in Boots takes the week with 3x GotG, Mummy, blank x4, for a cool 368k. On the flipside, Garbera (jokingly?) put in a late entry of 47MD x4, which easily took last place, with a tally over 10mil.
No one got the Perfect Zeroplex of 3x All Eyez, 1x Pirates, 4x blank, which carded a miniscule $561.

Week 6 recap....
It was a good week for players overall, but within that, was a case of the haves vs the have-nots. The haves were the smart players that loaded up on GotG or Pirates or The Mummy, mitigating their chances for large swings. The have-nots were players like me that stuck The Big Sick in their lineups, only for it to blow up. Some shakeups in the season standings followed...
No one got the Perfect Zeroplex of 2x Mummy, 1 Gotg, 1, House, 4 blank, which scored $10,142.
