What is The Box Office Theory?
First and foremost, it is under construction as of summer 2023.
Please excuse our mess on these home pages.
The Box Office Theory began in April 2011 as a blog dedicated to film industry analysis and statistics-driven box office commentary, created by Shawn Robbins.
That November, a community of movie fans lost their home site and banded together to help build a new forum.
Several transitions and a few years later, that community became independently owned and operated with the invaluable contributions of hundreds of regular readers, members, friends, supporters, and generous donors.
In late 2015, we launched our Box Office Derby prediction game. You can read more about the history of the game and our take on it.
While the Forum Community remains the heart of BOT, our team is excited for the future of the site.
In the mean time, popular forum discussions you can check out include:
