Fuck.  This is not the kind of news a guy wants to see after a relatively peaceful weekend.

Hey @S.K.o.S. - for the folks who still had New Mutants on their list, when do those points start being added in. Or are they already reflected?

They're not already reflected.

I still have the release date as August 2nd in my spreadsheet, so I guess I'll get to it around then.

Just realizing now that updates will be pretty hit-or-miss in the near future as I'm travelling 3 out of the next 4 weekends.

Based on just the first 3 days, it looks like Spider-Man and Aladdin are gonna be real close in box office take.

Spider-Man has $91,455,628 after 3 days (but some of that is estimates that will be finalized later, due to the holiday)

Aladdin had $91,500,929 after 3 days

Turned out it was not close at all.  Spider-Man passed Aladdin's 28-day box office total after just 14 days.

I am amused that - for at least the moment - Aladdin and Lion King have the same RT score (57%)

Lion King will be this year's Christopher Robin.  The results of the next update will probably send me into a blind rage.

Then, depression should set in.

Denial, acceptance.. Yeah.. I'll end up going through the stages of grief in their proper order.

You gotta remember that nearly EVERYONE is getting that same big chunk of Lion King Rotten Tomatoes points.  It's probably not going to make any one person free-fall down the rankings.

I wanna see how high I jump by virtue of not even listing Lion King.

Considering you have Men In Black #3 on your RT list, I can't imagine very high

I like how the information of F. Gary Gray being demoted on his own movie in favor of actors turning in their own lines and a producer who basically got his version of the film on screen conveniently came out when the movie had already bombed critically AND commercially. It's not like that info would be handy or pertinent for a contest like this before people made their lists. Not at all. 🙄

Actually the real box office race is between Spider-Man and Toy Story!

The lead has changed hands 4 times already.  You don't normally see that kind of back-and-forth!
