Random Factoid #164

Since I just talked about Box Office Mojo in my factoids, I thought I might share with you some interesting response I gave to polls on the site.

Q: What is your most anticipated movie of 2009?
A: “Watchmen”

Q: What will be the top-grossing December [2009] release?
A: “Sherlock Holmes”

Q: What will be the highest-grossing September [2009] release?
A: “Jennifer’s Body”

Just a sampling of my bad prognostication.  Somewhere on the site In Contention, I commented that I thought “Avatar” would not make more than $250 million domestically.

A few months ago, Apple introduced the Top Sites function of Safari.  This feature allows you to put up to 16 (I choose to do only 12, though) of your favorite sites on an easily accessible page.  Included in my 9 are Box Office Mojo (a site about the revenue of movies), Awards Daily and In Contention (my two favorite Oscar blogs), the IMDb (Holy Grail for movie lovers), Entertainment Weekly, the link to my AMC Moviewatcher Homepage, and a link to my own blog.  That is a whopping 8 out of 12, or 67% of my Top Sites dedicated to movies.
