Box Office Game #2: Machete – Multiple Prizes

1 Comment

So with all the fun I had with Box Office Game #1 I’ve decided to do another contest.  This time with some tweaks to make Game #2 bigger and better than the first one.

One week from tomorrow Machete starring Danny Trejo, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal and Don Johnson opens everywhere.

When I compile my list of this year's top 10 films I'm pretty sure this movie will...make the cut.

The rules for this contest are very simple and participation is free.

1.  Subscribe to the blog via email and confirm your email address when WordPress sends you the confirmation email.

2.  Email your guess for how much money Machete will make in it’s opening weekend domestically. 10 Million?  15 Million?  2 Million?  (Guesses stop at 12 midnight on Thursday September 2nd.)

3.  The closest guess wins.

Now you may be asking: “What do I win Rob?  I LOOOOOOVEEE prizes!”

Answer:  TONS OF COOL PRIZES. (3 actually)

1.  $25 Gift Card to store of your choice.  (If I can purchase the gift card online you can have it.)

Your pick, any card, anywhere, to use on ANYTHING.

2.  HARDWARE.  This is the prize I’m most excited about.  Probably because as a kid I enjoyed winning trophies so much.  You will receive a Fixing Films Box Office Champ #1 trophy for first place.

Yes, mullets really do rock.

This is a trophy my friend Jae and I made for a Wrestling video game competition. Yes that's tin foil, colored tape and a wash cloth for a cape. He even has a champion's belt. P.S the trophy's hair is REAL cat hair from Jae's couch!!!

Note:  Your trophy will be real, NOT homemade.

3.  Certificate of Awesomeness.  Nothing says, I’m better than you than a certified certificate from movie blog website.  Proudly display this in your living room, dining room, bedroom or cubicle.  Your friends and co-workers will be so jealous when they see their inadequacy painted out for them in plain English.  Makes a great talking piece and is a great resume builder!

Are you awesome enough to be certified?

Any questions?  Email for answers.  Current subscribers just send an email with your guess.  So, what are you waiting for…SUBSCRIBE!!!


Fixing Films: Box Office Game…Tie Breaker – Faceoff

Leave a comment

That’s right Ladies and Gentlemen.  Two of the entries in the Predators edition of the Fixing Films Box Office game were the exact same and are the closest to the actual total.  To preserve anonymity we will call these two gentlemen: Marlon Brando (Actor) and Glen Gulia (Wedding Singer Character.)  With guesses of $52,000,000 each and the current domestic total sitting at $50,497,643 this is game over for the rest of you but as for Glen and Brandon Marlon…

A faceoff.

Truly a battle of good vs. evil. Will Glen Gulia prove to be Marlon Brando's Kryptonite? Will Brando finally bust Glen Gulia for all those "working late" nights in the city?

The playoff will be played IMMEDIATELY this weekend with box office predictions for the OPENING WEEKEND of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.  Please note.  This is OPENING WEEKEND ONLY so we have immediate results.

C'mon people, in a real battle The World would win. He'd literally have to defeat 6,861,194,834 other people. I don't buy it. (Figuratively I don't buy it, I'll literally be buying it when I purchase my ticket this weekend...)

The best of luck to both of our contestants and we’ll have the results Monday, August 16th!
