Completely forgot that I threw Rough Night into my top 20 as a wild card. What a great decision.......

We have the same except Alien Covenant and PP3. So, PP3 has to make more than $74,262,031 exactly. PP2 did over $69 M in it's first weekend. It won't do that well in December, but I'm confident.

If I win it's because of my #19 and #20 (Boss Baby and PP3) picks and what I almost went with (The Star, Alien, Ninjago, Blade Runner were four of the five I cut + Jumanji).

Oooooh I'm far this season. I hope Pitch Perfect and Jumanji will make me climb a bit before the end.

Well, Jumanji 2 was quite the game-changer, and with UDM without it, it looks like he will be knocked off the top spot. However, it's so damn tight (that's what she said). Chien still has Pitch Perfect 3 earning cash, par example.

Final update will come in about 2-3 weeks time.

2018 launch coming sooner.

Wow, quite surprised I won this, considering I had The Dark Tower on my slate. But like 6 others, Jumanji was what vaulted me to the top. Thank you, shallow 90s nostalgia!

And well done to Chien for coming 2nd. If he had picked anything other than Baywatch he might have nailed it.

Thanks to everyone for competing, looking forward to seeing how 2018 turns out.

Thanks, I'm glad I arrived second !! Congrats to you.
But actually, I didn't have Baywatch on my slate...... I did have Ninjago though which wasn't a good pick.

Ah you're right, I was looking at Jas's slate. Yeah, Ninjago looked like a good option but I didn't pick it as I felt it aimed more towards boys and so any families with girls would avoid. Also, it's a TV series so this doesn't look like anything new or different.
