Tips For Winning Time Machine 5/13/14

The May 13, 2014 Time Machine contest features the following question:

What will the new Godzilla movie’s all-time box office rank be on June 9, 2014?

If you have access to an actual time machine, you can of course simply travel to the future and retrieve the answer.  If not, you should familiarize yourself with and, specifically, this chart–which gives you the all-time box office (worldwide gross) ranks for more than 550 movies.

On June 9th, will Godzilla 2014 be ranked 5th, 50th, or 500th?  Or somewhere in between?  Learn all about Godzilla (2014), which opens on May 16th, at the official Godzilla site HERE.

A: All entries must be in by 11:59 pm CT on June 5th, 2014.

Q: When will the winner(s) be revealed?

Q: When will the next Time Machine game start
A: The next Time Machine game should start on June 6, 2014.  Pssst…it may have something to do with a really big international soccer event starting June 12th.

Q: My time machine is in the shop (Flux Capacitor leak).  Can I borrow a friend’s?
A: Yes, our rules allow you to use another person’s time machine.  However, you must travel to the future yourself.  You cannot send someone else to the future to get the answer for you.
