The object is to pick the films that you think will be the top-ten grossing films of the summer, in order of box-office performance. That means only films released from April 26th 2019 to the Labor Day weekend (including Monday), counting only the money those films make domestically (US and Canada) in that period (04/26/2019 - 09/02/2019).
In other words films from March or April might still be making money after April 26th but they don’t count; films released from May on could start racking up foreign B.O., but that doesn’t count; films released from May on could still be making money into late September, but that doesn’t count either.
So what you will be doing is figuring out what 10 films will make the most money, and putting them in order of what you think they will gross at the box office. BUT, in addition to your top 10, you get to pick 3 “Dark Horses”- films you think *might* make it, but that you are not confident enough about to put into the top 10 proper.
The scoring of your list of 10 movies and your 3 dark horses goes like this:
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.
