You may remember a competition that commenced a few months back, pitting /Film against The Totally Rad Show in their annual Summer Movie Game. The purpose of the game was to predict the top ten highest grossing domestic films of the summer—and in order, no less.
/Film’s Peter Sciretta, David Chen and Russ Fischer vs. TRS’s Dan Trachtenberg, Alex Albrecht, and Jeff Cannata.
Well gentlemen, the summer is over. The bets were placed—some wise, some considerably less wise—and now, I’ve taken on the mantle of judge, jury and executioner.

Our friends at the Totally Rad Show have thrown down the gauntlet, and challenged /Film to compete against them in their annual Summer Movie Game. David Chen, Russ Fischer and I (Peter Sciretta) will compete against TRS’s Dan Trachtenberg, Alex Albrecht, and Jeff Cannata.
The game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. 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. I actually appeared on this week’s TRS to announce my choices along with the TRS gang (embedded after the jump).
You can WIN too! We thought it would be a fun idea to invite you guys to play along with us. After the jump you can find a full listing of the Summer movies, a complete set of rules, and all of the predictions made my TRS and /Film. Leave your top ten list and three dark horses with your explanations of why and how in the comments below, and I will send the U.S.-based /Film reader with the highest score a $100 Amazon Gift Card.
If there is a tie, we will choose one of winning entries based on their reasonings for the film placings and award that person with the prize. Each person is allowed one (and only one entry). You can enter by leaving your entry in the comments below along with your full name and city/town, state of residence. Entries will only be accepted until Friday, May 14th 2010 at midnight. The full rules must be followed in order to win.
