#1

Come on guys, let’s have some fun! It’s still too early to know exact details on what the final product will be, so why not make some fun money-free bets between us and see how much questions we get answered right when Grind House eventually comes out next April? You get 1 point for each right answer. The winner will be known exactly 2 months after Grind House’s US release date. So let’s start rolling! Here are the questions:

2. What will be Grind House’s IMDB rating after 1 month from its US release date? (choose one)

C. 6.0 - 6.9

D. 7.0 - 7.9

B. 150 - 159 mins

C. 160 - 169 mins

D. 170 - 179 mins

E. 180 - 189 mins

F. 190 - 199 mins

G. Over 200 mins



5. Besides QT and RR, do you think any of the following directors will direct a fake trailer? (choose yes or no for each director)



A. ELI ROTH - YES/NO

B. EDGAR WRIGHT - YES/NO

C. JOHN CARPENTER - YES/NO

D. TOBE HOOPER - YES/NO

E. JOE DANTE - YES/NO

F. ROB ZOMBIE - YES/NO

G. JOHN LANDIS - YES/NO

H. CLIVE BARKER - YES/NO

J. GEORGE ROMERO - YES/NO

K. WES CRAVEN - YES/NO

L. OTHER - YES/NO



6 . Which segment will be the first to open the feature? (choose one)



A. DEATH PROOF

B. PLANET TERROR

C. DEPENDS ON WHERE IT IS PLAYED

A. ROSARIO DAWSON

B. ZOE BELL

C. MARLEY SHELTON

D. MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD

E. ROSE MCGOWAN

F. FERGIE

G. VANESSA FERLITO

H. NONE OF THE ABOVE



8. Will there be a trunk shot in DEATH PROOF? (choose one)



A. YES

B. NO



9. Will the word “zombie”, “zombies” and/or any of its derivatives be uttered in PLANET TERROR? (choose one)



A. YES

B. NO



10. Will the “sickos” be fast or slow moving in PLANET TERROR? (choose one)



A. FAST

B. SLOW



-----------------------------------------------



There is only one rule for the game. As you can see all of the questions will be answered when the movie comes out, except for number 5. When the directors of the fake trailers will be anounced by Quentin or Robert themselves, question 5 will no longer be valid. This rule is also valid to any other question which gets answered by QT/RR before the film comes out. So it is better to start betting now, especially since question 5 carries the most points! As I said the bets are obviously money-free, but perhaps Seb could reward the winner by giving out one of the free movie gifts he will eventually recieve from the studio :wink:. I will place my bets tomorrow, so good luck to all! :smiley:

    Regarding question 7, it should be noted that the answer should not be based on the sequential order of the movie. Let me try to explain. In Kill Bill, Vivica Fox is the first chick to die, even though sequentially speaking she is not. But for the purpose of such bet, people betting on Vivica Fox would win. Also, the question regarding the fake trailer directors will remain valid till the fake trailers are actually shot. Wright and Roth are rumored to be directing one, but there is still no certainty. If Edgar Wright is one day reported to have actually directed a trailer, the option “Edgar Wright” will be removed from the question; meaning you will lose the opportunity to score an extra point.



    We need more participants in here. :slight_smile:

[/quote]

You get 1 point for each right director. If you get all the directors wrong, you just get 0 points.


#11

So if I say: every director that has ever walked the earth is gonna make one, and out of those 3 of them make one, I get 3 points?

Nope, you can’t say that. You have to select your bet only from the options available. Example: you decide to place a YES only on the “Other Director” option and NO on Wright, Roth, Carpenter and all the other options. If Wright, Roth and Jack Hill end up directing the trailers, the points I earn would be: 1 point each for choosing NO for Carpenter, Hooper, Dante, Zombie, Landis, Barker, Gordon and Romero and 1 point for choosing YES for Other Director. That would make a total of 9 points. I hope I explained it clearly, I suck at explaining. :stuck_out_tongue:
