Last year as a “bored at work” project I did a spreadsheet showing average placement for this league. I understand.

Big weekend for those of us to have Us :)

That would be Banks, me, Spectre, Walleye, Tranny, UDM, Six, Vader, Ron, and NSpan.

Also, for those of us to took Glass (me, Spectre, Walleye, Tranny, Six, Shryke, Chien, and W) it looks like it's going to top out at 110M. Not top 20 material. For reference, if it had come out in 2018 it would have been the #30 movie in the BO rankings.

I talked myself into Glass, that's disappointing. I'll be curious if Us actually has legs.

Eh Rough Night and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms occupied my past two #20 slots, so Glass is actually a notable improvement :lol:

Banks and NSpan...looks like you are the only ones without Dumbo on your slates. We should find out rather quickly if that was a wise move!

It appears Banks and NSpan made an excellent choice to keep Dumbo off their slates. Also kudos to those to picked Shazam! - Banks, Spectre, Walleye, Tranny, UDM, and Chien

Banks and NSpan, when you put down Conjuring 3 did you mean Annabelle 3 or did you mean the actual Conjuring 3 due out next year? If the latter you're both on your first bench picks.

Well, for those who picked Dark Phoenix, bummer huh? That would be Walleye, Shryke, Vader and Ron.

Ron and NSpan did not pick Godzilla...it's at 103M right now...normally I would say good call on their part, but man, the way movies are going this year, maybe it wasn't such a bad pick after all? I'm leaning towards still a good move in their part, bad move for the rest of us.

Kudos to NSpan, the only one of us to pick up John Wick 3! The rest of us are looking like suckers :oops:

MIB International isn't looking so great for UDM, W, Vader, and NSpan.

Although a disappointment overall, Pikachu appears to be a good pick for the purposes of this game. Good job to Banks, Spectre, UDM, Six, Chien, W, Ron, and NSpan.

Going back a bit, Shazam! was a good pick up for Banks, Spectre, Walleye, Tranny, UDM, and Chien

Doesn't appear that anyone is really running away w/ this. We've all had some hits and misses!

Ok, so it appears Banks, Walleye, and Ron made a good choice with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It currently stands at $125M and is still earning money. Nice job fellas.

On the not so good decisions front, UDM and I didn't pick up Hobbs and Shaw. Whoops!

It will be a while before another film is released that any of us have on our slates. So look out for October 4th, when Joker hits theaters. Banks, me, Spectre, Tranny, Shryke, Chien, W, Vader, and NSpan will all be hoping for good things.

Later!

When I picked, it was still labeled as Untitle Conjuring Universe Movie on the calendar. I thought it was Conjuring 3 - took a guess and missed :o

SO glad none of the films I put in my Top 20 was postponed, otherwise Dark Phoenix would have been included :D
