This is fantastic, will definitely be using it next year as a gauge of what numbers you should be trying to hit in each round.

You did have it haha, it just wasn't known to be Get Out at the time... it was the Untitled Blumhouse movie on February 24th when you took it in the 16th.

Thanks for crunching those numbers, Spectre. Good stuff.

My picks in rounds 2-4 were brutal last year, so I'm lucky to still be in Division A. Star Wars plus a few late round hits like The Shallows, Don't Breathe, and my usual Madea pick are the main reason I stayed in the Premiere League.

I hope for much better results from my top 5 this year, and I tried to stay away from films where I'm clearly not the target market and skewed toward films targeting adult audiences like The Post and Battle Of The Sexes that I fell better qualified to judge. Hopefully it'll pay off.
