Every year the studios release movies in the May-August window that they hope will add some serious coin to their coffers, while fans and audience members shell out the shekels in the hope of just having a good time.

So here's our challenge to you, faithful reader: spell out your Top Ten Summer Box-Office Prediction List below, ranking them in order from 1-10 with 1 of course being the flick you think will earn the most money.  You don't need to provide a dollar figure as well, just the order of placement you think these movies will end up in.  Once the movies have exhausted their theatrical release grosses we'll bump all your rankings back up sometime in September, and you can check out how well you did!

TDKR 450 220

This upcoming summer is really shaping up to be a particularly special one, with a wide variety of films on the way which appeal to all sorts of tastes. 

Some are hoping to start their own franchises (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN), some are sequels hoping to be bigger than their original releases (THE EXPENDABLES 2, G.I. JOE: RETALIATION), some are one-offs still hoping to grab your attention and transport you to another place and time (LAWLESS, BRAVE), some are looking to be the most impressive work yet from a few of our best filmmakers (PROMETHEUS, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES), and some are already breaking records everywhere (THE AVENGERS, natch).  There are, of course, a great many movies coming out that I haven't even mentioned here, but you can find the whole release list via the links below.

I for one will you give you extra Schmoe Points of Goodness if you add a pun to your posting that involves a movie releasing this summer.  Some examples include: I Will Avenge My Predictions From Last Year With This Assembled List, My Choices Have Risen, Prometheus Would Rip His Guts Out For These Picks, and What To Expect When You're Expecting A Top Ten List Is That Mine Will Be Awesome.

Thanks for participating, check out two of our own lists and accompanying analysis via the JoBlo Podcast, and good luck!

The Dark Knight Rises #1?

Cmon guys lets be serious. It has no chance of overtaking Avengers or the Brave, and I'm not even sure it will overtake the Amazing Spiderman. That's not to say it wont be a great movie. I just don't think it's gonna be the juggernaut everyone thinks it is. But it's fun to speculate none the less.

Lets not be a fanboy here... It'll def take over Brave let alone Spiderman. The buzz on that film is way higher than either one.

The Avengers...worldwide ( nah), opening weekend ( probably not..unless everyone fills out the IMAX theaters all weekend) Domestic total is possible though. I feel like Avengers will stop around 500...and TDKR will have a good shot at that point.

don't underestimate MIB3 and Ice Age

MIB3 and Ice Age are least in the top 5 for this summer. remember, this isn't what's going to be best, or best-received by fans/critics. it's what's going to make the most money. and dreamworks animated movies and will smith make money in the summer like clockwork.

My retaliation: only US boxoffice

1. The Avengers 550-700M
2. The Dark Knight Rises 350-450M (definitely won’t be as big as TDK)
3. Brave 250-300M (Pixar will regain the crown)
4. The Amazing Spider-Man 200-250M (its Spidey afterall)
5. Ice age 4 : Continental Drift 180-200M (if its Ice Age, it sales)
6. Prometheus 150-220M (as much as the hype, a conceptual sci-fi thriller won’t be a record-setter)
7. Men In Black 3 150-200M (Will Smith factor, but won’t be as big as the previous ones)
8. Madagascar 3 : Europe’s Most
1. The Avengers 550-700M

8. Madagascar 3 : Europe’s Most Wanted 130-180M
9. Expendables 2 130-150M
10. Bourne Legacy 130-150M (will be suffered for the lack of Damon)
11. GI Joe : Retaliation 120-150M
12. Dark shadows 100-150M (will be crushed by Avengers, but still its Depp)
13. Snow White & the Huntsman 100-150M (depends all on the word of mouth)
14. Rock of Ages 100-130M (Tom Cruise in a 80’s musical, what can you do ?)
15. Battleship 100-120M
16. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 100-120M
17. The Dictator 100-110M

They asked for a box office prediction list, not a personal favorites list which I'm assuming you wrote because if you truly believe EXPENDABLES 2 or PROMETHEUS is going to make more money than AVENGERS you've got to be clinically insane. In fact, AVENGERS already made more money in 3 days than either of those two films will do in their entire run.

I'll throw in my own list as well

The main talking point on this whole thing is surely going to be the order of the first two films on this list, and I can see from the preceding three lists that I'm already in the minority.

I'm also probably going to kick myself in the end for putting BRAVE so high...
