Click on possible answers in the right column to hide/show them on the graph. You can also hover over any line to see current value at that time. Graphs will begin to show data one hour after the question has been open. The Historical Trend chart does not display all prices ever reached since it is only updated at discrete time intervals, (hourly/daily/weekly, depending on the date range).
The winner of this market will be the film that is released on Sept. 2, 2010, or later and reaches at least $100,000,000 in total domestic box office.
The market will be resolved based on listings of box office and opening dates at Box Office Mojo. If BOM should cease operations, numbers at The Numbers will be used.
An underdog rule is in effect. If two or more films reach or pass $100,000,000 on the same day, the film that does so with the lowest total will be the winner.
At the discretion of the market originator, films may cash out at $0 before the end of the market if they drop out of the top 10 while having a cumulative total of $75,000,000 or less. A film also may cash out early if it is surpassed by $10,000,000 or more by a film that opened more recently, or if it is surpassed by $20,000,000 or more by a film that opened on the same day.
Any ongoing box office totals listed are included as a courtesy of the market originator. Although I will attempt to be accurate, you should double-check to make sure they coincide with the genuine totals. A tilde (~) before any total indicates an estimate based on published reports and may not be reliable.
Insider trading: The market originator will be participating once the market has been open for at least 48 hours.
Cashout time: Once a film passes the $100,000,000 mark, the market will be closed as of 9 p.m. Pacific Time (standard or daylight, depending on which date) the evening that the limit was passed.
I will use this space to list other potential contenders as they come up during the course of the market. A film doesn’t have to be listed here, however, to win.
As of the most recent update of this list, other contenders could include:
The Company Men (Oct. 22)
Saw 3D (Oct. 29)
Skyline (Nov. 12)
Morning Glory (Nov. 12)
