Frequently Asked Questions

What is Box Office Prophets?
Box Office Prophets is a Web site dedicated to the analysis of the film industry, including reviews, commentary, previews, and box office analysis. The staff of BOP has been running film Web sites in one incarnation or another for over seven years.

What type of content will I find on Box Office Prophets?
There are several specific areas that the staff of Box Office Prophets focuses on: box office numbers (records, historical trends, current grosses, predictions), film reviews, DVD reviews, films airing on television, issues facing the industry, news, and upcoming releases.

The Web site features a database of box office grosses dating back to 1989. Additionally, the site maintains preview pages for upcoming films both individually and on a monthly basis.


Can I write for Box Office Prophets?
Thank you very much, that's an extremely generous offer, but at the moment we are not accepting new writing staff. Unless you are Nick Hornby, in which case, drop us a line.

Can you help me contact Person X or get a job in the movie industry?
No. Box Office Prophets is not affiliated with any other corporation, film or television studio, or production company. BOP is an independently maintained and supported outlet for film and box office analysis, criticism, and commentary.

BOP News --- totally fake or not?
Daily News is a humor column based on real life events. While the start of the story is always rooted in truth (or at least real rumors), punch lines are another story. We make no claim that the punch line is rooted in truth; anticipate that they have an element of hyperbole to them for entertainment value. Daily News is not intended to be taken as serious news.

What are the Calvin Awards?
For the past five years, the staff at Box Office Prophets has voted on the site's annual Calvin Awards, the BOP version of the Academy Awards. The nomination and voting processes are subject to the standards of nominator or voter. As long as the nomination comes from a film released in the calendar year under consideration, it is eligible for a Calvin Award.

What are the lists? How are they compiled?
Several times a year, the staff at Box Office Prophets works within a set question or category to establish a list of the site's favorite or least favorite ________. Like the Calvin Awards, the lists are subjective and unique to the site.

Who are the people behind BOP?
BOP is comprised of a group of film fans with a common interest: providing insightful, intelligent discussions of the issues facing current cinema and the film industry.

We have dedicated ourselves to making this Web site as professional as possible. While we do use humor in our analysis and general content, particularly at times when the target is just too hard to ignore (see: BOP News, Jason X or Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course), for the most part, we work to be a reputable source of information. Excepting Daily News, columns are intended as professional, serious work, though some columnists may rely on humor to get their point across more than others. Of course, depending on your tastes, "humor" is a subjective term.
