B.O. Derby

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby opened big with nearly $50 million. I guess Will Ferrell is back. The Devil Wears Prada is sneaking up on the 9th place spot, but Bobby will likely dump it right off the list anyways. So as the summer comes to a close, you can see that for the most part, I was way off, with a couple of close picks. But at least I nailed Pirates as the Summer's big hit even if it was a lot bigger than I expected. So Superman is still working toward 200 mil, but he still has a tough battle ahead.

Current Rankings:


9) The Break-Up - $117,788,940
8) Mission: Impossible III - $133,382,309
7) Click - $134,369,000
6) Over the Hedge - $152,995,450
5) Superman Returns - $190,223,000
4) The Da Vinci Code - $216,385,837
3) X-Men: The Last Stand - $233,524,650
2) Cars - $237,498,000
1) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - $379,709,000

Superman Returns still needs $9,777,000 to reach $200 Million


My Top 9 Predictions


9) Lady in the Water - $160,000,000
8) Poseidon - $175,00,0000
7) Mission: Impossible III - $205,000,000
6) Over the Hedge - $220,000,000
5) X-Men: The Last Stand - $225,000,000
4) Cars - $260,000,000
3) The Da Vinci Code - $275,000,000
2) Superman Returns - $325,000,000
1) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - $350,000,000

That's pretty impressive for Cars, considering there'd be plenty of children's fares :)

It seems like a neural network of some sort could create better blockbuster predictions.

maybe, but then i would have to calculate atr power and marketing budgets and i would probably still be wrong.
