If it stays that strong - it will ease the blow of me fucking up Christopher Robin's placement

Oh, it doesn't come out until July 27th.    DON'T PANIC

I have faith in critics that they will totally savage that movie and not allow a Tom Cruise vehicle to be the most critically acclaimed film of the summer.

*looks at RT*

Fuck.  Grumpy Kenneth Turan liked this movie.  This does not bode well for my ballot.

*Realizes he had Sicario ahead of Mission Impossible*

 

*Sighs*

 

Should have realized no MI movie has gotten worse then 93 on RT since 2006.

Well if those reviews hold true, MI will get him out of the cellar. 

I could be replacing him when the next standings are posted.

As it stands, I'm sure this is my worst entry and I've taken part every year since you started this in 2008.

I am trying to decide which final result would upset @J.T. more

Him missing out on a prize or finishing behind me

It appears that Skyscraper is going to underperform at the Box Office

It isn't going to meet its projections for opening weekend and it is definitely finishing behind Hotel Transylvania 3

Pretty much every "smart" prediction I made has been wrong.

I keep reading & hearing that Rock is the #1 movie star in the world.

Imagine how huge he'd be if he picked better movies.

I know his range is limited (Rock will probably never be nominated for an Oscar), but I still ca't believe he doesn't pick better scripts.

I agree with this completely. He's a big damn star, but the man knows how to pick some dull, generic-looking shlock. I've literally only seen one of his movies at the cinema. And that was The Rundown. A decade and a half ago. 

That said, I already plan to be one of the sad sacks who rushes to see the Hobbs movie on opening weekend. I expect nothing less than a modern day Tango & Cash. And when Rock is considering projects, that should be his target.

Ooof - Skyscraper didn't even get to #2 this weekend as it was also beaten by Ant-Man and Wasp

It made roughly $25.5 million

Apparently Universal is now trying to spin it as they always knew the global box office was where it was at for Skyscraper (it opens in China next week)

I feel like this was the same excuse used with Tomb Raider

It still has plenty of time but Mission Impossible has settled in at 93% (58 reviews). It has like 10 days before it comes out so that will change.

But right now it sits behind Incredibles 2 (which is at 94%)

Speaking of super early - Mamma Mia 2 is at 88% after 16 reviews

Likewise. Without looking, I'll assume a good chunk had Mamma Mia 2 low on Rotten Tomatoes lists because it seemed obvious as Avengers: Infinity War topping the box office and it's a sequel ten years after the first.

There's no Teen Titans Go! To The Movies but I'm interested to see how that performs compared to the comic book movies this Summer and DC's recent track record. I think that might surprise people critically and financially.

Equalizer 2 - 43% (23 reviews)

Mamma Mia 2 is probably gonna stay high (now 87% after 39 reviews) because it will probably be one of those movies that doesn't get a lot of reviews

Of course since I typed that - E2 went up to 44% and MM2 went down to 82%

A Wrinkle in Time, a film specifically targeting little girls, had the twist of "Guess what? Sade is making new music!"

Personally, based on the business of the first film, I think Mamma Mia 2 is insulated better than half money grab/half confusing vanity project like A Wrinkle in Time and doesn't need that hook.

well BOOYAH

Quote

After weathering a setback with Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper last weekend, Universal is expected to take the upper hand at the weekend box office with Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which is poised to make between $30 million-$36 million at 3,200 locations.
The first film 10 years ago worked, capturing all females from 5-80 and putting up a 5.2 multiple off its $27.8M opening for a $144.1 haul, and the anticipation is that the sequel will do the same.
