Hot off the press it’s episode 95 of The Intermission Podcast! We’ve got an exciting announcement to kick off this week’s episode. Our friends down at Silver Screen VII in Gallipolis Ohio have invited us to do a live pre-show podcast this Thursday, December 17th. What’s the movie we’ll be live podcasting for you ask? Well if you have to ask that you’ve clearly been living under a rock for the past year. It’s Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! We really hope to see all of our local listeners out in full Star Wars costume on Thursday. Bring your lightsabers and your Wookies! We’re planning on having a great time! And if you’re not one of our local listeners, that’s no excuse. Snag a plane ticket and come see us!
In the Heart of the Sea Review
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Guy got everyone some sweet Star Wars Micro Machines. After we all play with those for a while, Craig and our producer tell us about their trip to Columbus to see the latest movie from Producer Ron Howard, In the Heart of the Sea. Spoiler alert: it’s about Moby Dick.
Star Wars 7 Domestic and Worldwide Gross Predictions
Getting right back to Star Wars excitement, the fellas try to guess what the opening weekend box office numbers for Episode VII will be. We’re going with domestic box office earnings, and The Price is Right rules apply. Closest without going over gets a pizza party, and a guess right on the money (within $100,000) gets the entire Star Wars series, past and future movies, on Blu Ray. We also guess worldwide earnings for the coveted prize of “group high five”. Guesses are as follows, domestic gross earnings first, followed by worldwide earnings:
Guy- $304,223,000.00 $657,000,000.00
Josh- $412,186,909.86 $512,186,909.87
Corey- $327,586,899.01 $608,000,512.86
Craig- $327,586,899.02 $658,000,000.00
So to recap, Guy did his homework, Josh has no friggin’ clue, Corey just winged it, and Craig knows how The Price is Right works/is a dick.
