Rank #17: The 2018 Summer Movie Wager - A Game of Box Office Predictions

Podcast cover
Read more
It's that time of year again -- time to count down our top 10 films of summer 2018, according to what we think their domestic box office totals will be. Everyone chooses their 1-10 ranked films:

- Getting number 1 or number 10 dead-on gets you 13 points (each).
- 10 points for numbers 2-9 dead-on
- 7 points if your pick was only one spot away from where it ended up
- 5 points if it was two spots away
- 3 points if your pick is anywhere in the Top 10
- 1 point for each dark horse that makes it into the Top 10

 The scoring is tabulated so that you get the SINGLE HIGHEST point value for each pick- that is, if you get number ten right, you don’t get 13+3, you only get 13. This year your can play along with us by submitting your list on thesummermoviewager.com. Anyone who submits their list before Avengers is released will be counted on the leaderboard.
