Have any of you heard of the Hollywood Stock Exchange game? It's online at www.hsx.com. It's free, and when you register they give you two million dollars of play credit.

Move stars are bonds and movies are stocks. Movies get listed while still in development. Their prices adjust after the opening weekend and cash out two weeks after opening, based on their box-office. Movie stars prices adjust according to how their movies did. Prices go up and down independent of adjusts according to the market.

I've bought stock in Tim's new movie, Zoom, and have already cleared $185,000. Tim's stock is currently listed at a respectable $46.30.

His stock site also includes other films currently in the works for him.

It's a great game if you love movies!

I heard of it, but never signed up. Interesting stuff. Is $46.30 a good amount for Tim's stock to be at? If only the real stock market was that fun...

The movie star's bonds are based on an average of the box office for their last five films. The current price for Tim's stock is a dollar lower than the value of that average, probably because he doesn't have anything coming out until December of this year, and some people have sold off his stock.

$47.05 is a respectable figure, in my opinion. "Who Is Cletis Tout" is still on there, so it hurts his average. "Big Trouble" also hurts, as it didn't do too well at the box office it's first two weeks, something I totally blame on whoever was responsible for the ad campaign. That is one good movie! I saw it on Comedy Central again this morning.

What fun! Thanks, M., for the site. I agree with you; that's a respectable figure, in terms of the market. Ah, yes, if only it was 'real' currency! L.

If it was real currency...we'd be seeing ES ads on TV. Smile

I must admit, there is something about buying into a movie that is still in development stage, having it boost your value, and finally seeing it in a theatre. Kind of like "I knew you way back when".
