2018 Summer Blockbuster Movie Pool

Recommended Posts

I saw The Meg around noon on Saturday. The showing I went to was about 75% percent full at least in the largest auditorium of that particular theater. Color me surprised.

I put The Meg at the bottom of both my lists.

Looks like I didn't have to wait for the puppets to take me down.

Crazy Rich Asians has 31 reviews in and is 100% Fresh.

That is probably the movie that would've killed us if Christopher Robin had not disappointed us all.

I just scroll to the bottom and see if I’m last. And I’m not!

rippa: you are apparently quite good and guessing box office scores ( or very bad—you want a low number for the tie breaker, right?)

Because OF COURSE I'm in first place right before the two remaining movies will tank me HARD.

Why must you mock me Movie Gods?

The Meg should've been downright awful, right?...
No one would have paid their hard earned money for The Meg of all movies, right?...
Roger Rabbit with Muppets sounds like a can't miss, right?...
Ugh.

I look forward to being shunted down to the cellar after The Meg backdoors me even worse. Damn you, Jason Statham and your ridiculous action movie premises!

So God Damn close...

Do enough people have Happy Time Murders on their list to make big differences?

It was the most omitted movie from the lists.  Of the 28 of us, 11 people have it on their box office list, and 9 people have it on their RT list. 

For box office, nearly everyone who has it on there put it very close to the bottom of their list.  7 of the 11 people put it dead last, 10 of the 11 put it in their bottom 3.

RT placement is more spread out.  As has been mentioned, Paco and The Z, who are both top 3 in the standings right now, both put it in their top 5.

Looking at Box Office Mojo - The Meg got to basically $84 million after week 2 which for our purposes moves it to #11.

It definitely will catch Equalizer 2 - the question is can it beat Mamma Mia

Meanwhile - Christopher Robin will finish ahead of Skyscraper in the BO

Oh and - it appears that Mission Impossible did not catch Ant Man

Also from the "I am grasping at straws category" - Christopher Robin's RT score is back down to 70% which will drop it below Solo.

Every little bit will count...

Nearly back into the Top 10, but I don't think enough people put Happytime on their ballots for it to matter.

I'd say yes.  It's even on pace to beat Ocean's 8, which seems crazy.  Literally no one put The Meg higher on their box office list than Ocean's 8.

I could see how The Meg might have less staying power than some of the other movies, though.

MILDLY IMPORTANT NEWS

I was updating my spreadsheet just now when I realized that I had Happytime Murders down as opening on August 17th, but it actually opens on August 24th.  Maybe they switched the release date at some point, or maybe I just always had it wrong.

So, I thought Happytime Murders would hit 28 days on September 13th, but that'll actually be on September 20th... which means the contest will finish 7 days later than I thought, which means there will actually be 21 updates, not 20.
