2018 Summer Blockbuster Movie Pool


Recommended Posts

Yeah. It is without question an absolute disaster for a Star Wars film, but the question for the competition is...how many films on this list top $80 mil opening weekend? 

 

If this included international, we'd all be screwed right now though.

I think Jurassic World is a safe bet to at least double Solo's opening weekend and I could see Incredibles 2 doing $120M+ 

Yeah, both will do a number on SoLow. It's doing terribly.

I slacked on crossing it off in the first post, but you can't put Solo on your lists. It's already premiered.

I have it dead last on my BO list.  I really should've stuck it last on my RT list too and kept Mamma Mia off of my ballot.

I am dumb.

I must've gotten my bad points for putting Solo over Deadpool 2 on my BO list.  Star Wars fans have failed me miserably.

8:38 AM and still no Action Point reviews.

Just so it doesn't feel alone - Adrift only got its first reviews in the last 30 minutes

I should've listened to my gut and put this last on my RT ballot.  I'll only get the rub for it being a shit movie if it makes zero dollars.

I am fascinated by this now. Still no Action Point score

Is there a protocol if a movie technically never gets a RT score? (It clearly will eventually but it is fun to think about)

I will say this. This morning when I looked - the audience score was 80%. It is now 71%.

I could see Action Point having an artificially high audience score until it hits DVD, because who the fuck is going to see that other than people who know exactly what they're getting into and like that sort of thing?

To no one's surprise, the first (and currently only) review is an eviscerating one. I smell a 0%.

I think you might be right. It only has 3 reviews now so not enough to officially get a score but they are all from top critics and all three are negative.

We have a positive!  Up to 14%!

Hopefully it keeps going because I just realized I'm a fool and put this 12th on my Rotten Tomatoes list.

I was stressing about the fact Solo might not pass Deadpool 2 for BO, then I realized The Happytime Murders is much too high on both halves of my ballot. Oh dear.

Me coming in this late had a lot of disadvantages: No gimme at the top of my BO, no 2 easy 80's plus picks in Infinity War and Deadpool. But the biggest advantage I had is I had a chance to see that abysmal Happy Time Murders trailer.

Update coming on Monday, sorry.  I'm catching a flight tomorrow morning, was thinking about that, forgot to update the spreadsheet and it's on my work computer.

Boy, was I too kind to how I thought Action Point would do. But none of the Jackass movies ever got rotten scores on RT so even though the one trailer I saw was pretty bad, my comedy tastes are not mainstream so I couldn't presume most people would think that movie is a stinker. I guess I'll stick to reading more stories about the actual Action Park instead.

But yes that is worse for me than Solo being a flop, as many others here did not predict that either.

Action Point is at 17% but it only has 24 reviews so it is still at the point where the rating can go jump up or fall down.

I just need it to stay high enough that the Meg is worse than it.
