EMH IS ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS PREDICTIONS...WHICH SUCKED THIS WEEKEND!

by EMH

That’s it. I’ve had it. This weekend I am just going to predict The Hangover to make 42 million.

Once again, I have underestimated this movie. What it is doing is gone from remarkable to incredible. It's week three take was only down 18.4% from its week two take. Also, it had two new major studio releases in which to contend with. Good luck finding a bigger surprise hit this year.



Here is the top five for the weekend:

1. The Proposal 33.6 million

2. The Hangover 26.8 million

3. Up 23.5 million

4. Year One 19.6 million

5. Pelham 1-2-3 12.0 million

My top five predictions looked like this:


5. The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 12.1 million

4. The Hangover 19.9 million

3. Up 20.4 million

2. The Proposal 22.0 million

1. Year One 23.6 million

Now, my order sucked. Plus, I was way off on Hangover (again) and Proposal. However, my other picks weren't so bad. Okay, more accountability...

I WAS WRONG


The Hangover has now made almost 120 million more than its 35 million dollar budget. Congrats, boys. I really need to see that movie.

I WAS WRONG


The Proposal really got me. 33.6 million!?! WOW! I look like an idiot on that one.

I WAS RIGHT


I was only 100,000 off on Pelham. I am a genius.

I WAS WRONG


4 million off on Year One is not that bad. BUT I picked it at number one, and it only came in at number four. UGH!

I WAS RIGHT


Also, only 3.1 million off on Up is not too bad. And I did have that at number three. So I got that one going for me.

Okay, I'll make you a deal. I'll either get this week's predictions out by tomorrow (because of Transformers) or I promise not to see a single tracking number or box office take for any of the movies this weekend before I make my predictions. I am going to go out on a limb this weekend. TRANSFORMERS WILL MAKE MORE THAN THE HANGOVER. There, I said it. There's no turning back now.

So I looked pretty stupid this weekend. Go ahead. I deserve it! Let me hear how bad I was. Even Nobby can put me down.

Thanks for reading,

EMH
