Dawnie Walton (one of our online editors) said a wise thing when she saw the results of round 10 in our weekly prediction game: "The year-end box office is really tricky." You ain't kiddin', Dawnie. The results from 1450 players made this our weirdest round so far.

The first weirdness came on the TV front, when CBS dropped a re-run of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at the last minute, replacing it with a re-run of Without a Trace that drew a larger audience than any of the other TV shows listed in our game. So we had to drop that question when we tallied the correct answers.

You might think that losing a question would increase the number of winners. But no. Not one person aced the six remaining questions. And the people who had perfect scores in previous weeks were nowhere to be found on this week's top players list.

Since we can't blame Canada (it's been done), let's blame Narnia, which surprised many of us by winning the second spot on the Box Office Chart, with a take of $31.2 million. We didn't even include it as one of the possible correct answers. So, because most of you hate to select "None of the Above," Narnia indirectly lead to your downfall.

Here are the correct answers for Box Office Bull's-eye, round 10:
