No, you're a Darth, which is, I dunno, likely a couple steps above probably. {nm}

BO Early Weekend Estimates: XPND2 28.5, BORN4 17, PNORM 13.3, SPRKL 13, OLOTG 10.8   Oleg Max on Aug 18, 08:56

too higj {nm}   xiayun on Aug 18, 09:17

is that chinese for high? :) {nm}   Oleg Max on Aug 18, 09:18

high for chinese is "gao" {nm}   karspov on Aug 18, 09:41

ah, meant to say too high on Expendables 2 IMO, thinking $26m myself {nm}   xiayun on Aug 18, 09:18

even if it follows XPND1 IM og 2.61 = 27.41. so yeah, it is too high... {nm}   Oleg Max on Aug 18, 09:24

^og = of^ {nm}   Oleg Max on Aug 18, 09:24

Especially looks like the midnight gross accounted for a bigger portion of its Friday than the original   xiayun on Aug 18, 11:01

Once again, took another bath on 2 predicts. I predicted $53M for XPND2 and, it may not make it to $30M. SPRKL looks good for $14M, -$4M {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 18, 10:01

from my predict of $18M-$20M, the only release I pretty much nailed was the one all of the predictors really nailed, OLOTG @ around $10M. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 18, 10:04

The only prediction that counts this week is XPND2, the gains will cover all the losses and more. :-) {nm}   elchan on Aug 18, 11:04

I hedged so with make $ whatever the WEBO :) {nm}   Rednax on Aug 18, 13:21

Agreed. While XPND2 has turned into a SHORT & a victory for some HSX titans here, I was very confident in XPND2 doing $45-$50M against odds. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 18, 14:37

But ah well. On to next week predicts. {nm}   eallensbp on Aug 18, 14:38

Unfortunately, even the Sith do not teach the dark arts of movie box office prediction. {nm}   elchan on Aug 18, 16:33
