2. The Incredibles
3. Monster's Inc.
4. Toy Story 2 (I feel this one often gets forgotten, and I love it.)

Correct on #1, Six.

Yea Banks, Coco was really endearing. While i'm now 20 years removed, growing up in Mexico for the first 10 years of my life, there were so many flashbacks for me and the Mexican culture explored was so fun, it hit me in all the feels.


Final weekend predictions of June 15-17, 2018: I'm seeing some really high numbers for Incredibles, but i'm going to stick with my initial guess. I went up 1 million on Tag, seems to at least have some fans, and Superfly opened with a $1.2M Wednesday, which most likely means it wont be enough to make the Top5 this weekend.

Top 5
1. Incredibles 2 $145M
2. Oceans 8 $23M
3. Tag $12M
4. Solo $9M
5. Deadpool 2 $8M

PTA:
5. Incredibles 2
4. Wont You Be My Neighbor
3. Oceans 8
2. Tag
1. American Animals

Woah, that's a hella high number for Incredibles 2. That would make it Pixar's highest opener of all time. Not sure if it has the same fanbase as Nemo to have its sequel open as high.

Top 5
1. Incredibles 2 $130M
2. Oceans 8 $20M
3. Tag $13M
4. Solo $8M
5. Deadpool 2 $7M

PTA: Incredibles 2, Neighbor, Oceans 8, Tag, American Animals

Last quote. Hmm.... gonna guess The Incredibles

Finally, i know one of these quotes, its from Ratatouille.

And yeah big projections for Incredibles 2, im looking forward to seeing it much more than i was for Finding Dory. Ill say it hits $160M

Saw a preview for Tag last night, it looks fun but nothing like setting the world on fire, i wonder if a couple of actors were miscast (Jake Johnson and that black guy). I can't see it topping $12M

Hannibal Burress has been quite popular ever since he outed Bill Cosby. He's kind of become Jordan Peele if Peele hadn't become Ben Stiller and forgot he was ever funny (Do Key and Peele still talk? I haven't heard anything about them together since the show ended.).

And I've never gotten the appeal of Jake Johnson. He comes off as being very generic.

Ron's correct on the last quote.


official Thursday numbers

Incredibles 2 - $18.5M
Tag - $1.3M
Superfly - $.9M

for comparison sake, Finding Dory opened to a $9.2M Thursday previews, obviously Incredibles 2 wont double Dorys opening weekend, but i think it's safe to say it'll definitely break the record.

Cinemascores:

Incredibles 2: A+ (the first was also an A+)
Tag: B+
Superfly (polled Wednesday): B+

And the Drafthouse was busy last night with people of all ages coming to see the Parrs back in action (Infinity War had to be put back on two screens to accommodate overflow).

I wasn't expecting that Gotti number, especially with the bad reviews (though Travolta's performance has been getting some praise). I'm seeing it Monday night (it's only getting one showing here) so I'm hoping I'll like it.
