D&D Movie/TV Guess the D&D Movie Opening Weekend Box Office Performance, and Win a Prize!

It's been a long time since I've done one of these little guessing games, so I think we're overdue. Let's get this party started!

As we all know, the new D&D Movie, "Honor Among Thieves," is scheduled to be released in theaters on March 31st, 2023. Some folks here think it's going to be a smash hit, others think it's going to be a flop, and I think it'll be somewhere in between. In fact, there's a whole other thread about that, right over here at this elegant and finely-crafted hyperlink.

So let's have a little fun with that speculation, shall we? I ask you, gentle reader: how much money do you think this movie is going to make on opening weekend? Post your guess in this thread, and maybe win a prize!


The Rules
  • To play, simply post in this thread with your prediction of the final domestic box office earnings for the opening weekend only, for "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves." No purchase necessary, some restrictions apply, void where prohibited, etc.
  • Your guess must be in U.S. Dollar amounts ($USD).
  • You must post your guess before the movie opens in theaters. For the purpose of this contest, all votes posted after 11:59 p.m. PST on March 30th, will be ignored.
  • The person who comes closest to the final dollar amount without going over will win the prize. Just like on "The Price Is Right."
  • In the unlikely event of a tie, the person who posted the correct amount first will win.
  • If you post more than one guess, or if you edit your post, you will be disqualified.
  • For the purpose of this contest, the final dollar count from opening weekend will be the one posted to the Box Office Mojo website, for Domestic earnings, for that weekend. No other reporting agency or dollar amount will be used in this contest.


The Prize
The winner will receive a £25 gift certificate to the EN Publishing store, good for the purchase of any of their fine products.


When the box office results are released for the opening weekend (probably sometime in the week after), I will reach out to the winner by private message and swap information. Then I'll send you the coupon code for your £25 gift certificate to the EN Publishing store.

So post your best guess, and good luck! May the odds be ever in your favor!


For Comparison
Here are some notable D&D-esque movies across my lifetime.
  • "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975) grossed $1.83M on its domestic opening weekend, which would be about $10.2M today.
  • "Excalibur" (1981) grossed $4.52 million over its domestic opening weekend...that's about $14.9M today.
  • "Conan the Barbarian" (1982), grossed $9.5 million over its opening weekend. Adjusted for today's dollar, $29.5M.
  • "The Sword and the Sorcerer" (1982) grossed $1.8M on opening weekend, or $5.6M here in 2023.
  • "Krull" (1983) earned $5.47 million on opening weekend, which is about $16.4M today when adjusted for inflation.
  • "Labyrinth" (1986), earned $3.5 million on opening weekend...about $9.7M in 2023 dollars.
  • "Legend" (also 1986), grossed over $4.3 million on its opening weekend...about $11.6M today.
  • "Willow" (1988) earned $8.3 million on its opening weekend. Adjusted for today, that's $21.1M.
  • "Dungeons and Dragons" (2000) grossed $7.2 million over its opening weekend, which is about $12.6M in today's money.
  • "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001) grossed $47.2 on its opening weekend, which would be $79.8M today.
  • A year later in 2002, "The Two Towers" would earn $62.0 million on its opening weekend, about $103.1 million today.
  • "Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God" (2005) somehow managed to gross $1.75 million dollars, or about $2.7 million here in 2023.

Hm. Seems like the Internet can't agree on the release date. I've adjusted the schedule in the post above (I believe the official release date is March 31st, but I've seen other dates reported.) Go ahead and post your best guesses; I'll sort it all out.

@CleverNickName just to confirm, are we predicting only the domestic (USA and Canada) opening weekend gross, or the worldwide?

Also, the officia release date is the 31st, but ‘Preview’ screenings that count towards opening weekend will start on the 30th (maybe sooner) but the earliest any real numbers will be out for that would be Friday morn.
