Box Office Results - Weekend of 12/3/2010

So, if this is your first time seeing my accuracy for predicting the box office, you're going to want to look away. Normally, I'm pretty decent. You know, I pull down a solid B grade, sometimes get an A. This week, I was like George W. Bush taking a geography quiz, like a Wall Street banker answering morality-based questions, like a blood-stain-covered ax wielder taking a polygraph about the whereabouts of a friend. I failed. I failed hard. Give me a break, I beg you. I'm tired. I'm not feeling well. I'm also mildly mentally challenged apparently. I also need to just get this over with and move on to Tuesday.

Here's the box office results and my feeble accuracy, haiku style.

1.) Tangled - $21.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 89.5%) Disney is back, y'all. Everyone loves fairy tales! Maybe not dragons.

2.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 - $16.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 86.5%) Harry is falling! But don't cry too much for him, he'll be back real soon.

3.) Burlesque - $6.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 72%) How is this still here? Can we make it go away? It makes me so sad.

4.) Unstoppable - $6 million (Accuracy of prediction - 100%) People love choo-choos. And Denzel Washington too! And there you have it.

5.) Love and Other Drugs - $5.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 0%) We know for sure now. A naked Anne Hathaway, will beat out ninjas.

Overall Accuracy of Prediction - 70% I will do better. I misjudged Cher and ninjas. That just can't happen.

Okay, that's it for today. Endure Monday and I'll see you tomorrow. Oh, and follow me on Twitter or someone will step on a pretty butterfly.
