Captain America Civil War

Update: During this podcast, we put the call out to listeners/readers to create a system that would act as a running scoreboard, dynamically updating with the box office numbers to show who is in the lead throughout the Summer. A /Filmcast listener named Paul answered the call, and you can now check the running tally on the Summer Movie Wager Virtual Scoreboard. We didn’t actually expect anyone to create anything as intricate as this, so a big thanks goes out to Paul. Please also check out his cocktail blog here.

Its that time of year again — the Summer movie season is upon us. And the /Filmcast team have once again gathered to compete in what has become an annual tradition: the Summer Movie Wager. Every year in the past I would make a guest appearance on the Totally Rad Show for this segment, but with that show now disbanded we have taken on the job of hosting this contest on /Film. This is the tenth annual edition of this contest.

Last year was David Chen’s first time participating and he won the wager. This year the contest includes Devindra Hardawar (his first time), David ChenGermain Lussier, Jeff Cannata and myself in a game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. It’s a free-for-all; the person with the best score wins. But it isn’t just that easy — not only do the participants need to predict what 10 films will be the highest grossing films domestically, but we need to place them in order. After the jump you can listen to the full episode of the show with our predictions.
