As drafted on this week’s show, here are our picks for this year’s contest. Remember, we’ll only be counting opening weekend (Fri-Sun) box office. Who do you think will win?
No show this week (3/11)
BREAKING NEWS: No show this week, but it’s not our fault! It’s the studios’ fault. Of the four new movies opening Friday, three of them — Sony’s THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY, Focus’ THE YOUNG MESSIAH, and Lionsgate’s THE PERFECT MATCH — aren’t being screened for critics. The one that is screening (Paramount’s 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE), we’re going to miss because of SXSW travels. So we’ll return on March 18 with a SXSW wrap-up and (hopefully) a CLOVERFIELD review. We’re sorry — sorry the movies are apparently so bad that they don’t want anyone to see them. 🙁

No show this week
Just a reminder that there’s no show this week. A couple weeks ago it was Jeff’s fault. It’s Eric’s fault this time, but this is no time to point fingers. Let’s just remember the time when it was Jeff’s fault and pretend it’s that again. See you next week!
No show this week (July 31)
As foretold in ancient prophecy (last week’s show), there’s no show this week, on account of Jeff’s summer travels and other excuses. We’ll catch up with “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” and “Vacation” next week.
