Intrade has listed market for the the second highest box office returns in its first three days of wide release (over 800 theaters) in 2012. The Dark Knight Rises is widely expected to eclipse all other films released this year, so we have listed this market for the second biggest release to make it more interesting.
This market can be found under Entertainment > Box Office Returns.
Market Specific Rules:
A market will settle at $10.00 if the specified movie has the second highest box office return in its first three days of wide release.
A market will settle at $0.00 if the specified movie does not have the second highest box office return in its first three days of wide release.
Settlement will be based on the gross box office returns published by Box Office Mojo. The total gross for the first three days of release will be used to calculate expiry.
For example: the gross box office returns for the first three days (Oct 1-3 2010) for The Social Network were $22,445,653, as detailed by Box Office Mojo HERE.
The first three days of release may not be a weekend. If the movie opens on a Wednesday then the box office returns from Wednesday to Friday will be used for settlement
If the movie is not released, for whatever reason, during 2012 the market will be expired at $0.00.
