KJ's Late Winter/Spring Box Office Contest 2019

Interesting crop of movies on the list - can someone finally nail the top 5 here, with a list of much fewer contenders??

And yes... no Avengers: Endgame. That is going to be in the summer game, as it's so much better fitting there.

The season's contest covers movies released from January 11th, 2019 to April 19th, 2019. The player with the most points at the end of the game will receive a $25 gift card.

How the Points Work
Spoiler: show
Each player predicts the total domestic box office grosses of 25 movies listed further below. It's the ultimate test in box office predictions: guessing a movie's potential final gross before the season even starts with few, if any, tracking numbers. For each movie, the top 25% of players who predicted most accurately will get 3 points a piece.

Players can also score bonus points. The first is the Top 5. Each players will predict the season's five biggest films. Each movie that you include in your top 5 predictions that ends up somewhere in the top 5 scores 1 point. Each movie that you correctly predict its top 5 rank scores an additional 1 point. An extra bonus of 10 points is given to any player who correctly predicts the Top 5 perfectly. (This has still never been done in the 5+ year history of this game.) Only the 35 movies (and 2 backup movies) that are being predicted are contenders for our Top 5 point system.

Finally, players predict the answers to ten box office questions. A correct answer scores 2 points.

Ties in overall points are broken by who has the lowest total difference between each of their movie predictions and the actual total.

Release changes
TOTAL GROSS PREDICTIONS - Backup movies are in place in case any of the 25 predicted movies change their release date. (Once a movie moves its release date outside our season window, the first backup movie listed comes into play.)
TOP 5 PREDICTIONS - Only the 25 predicted movies (and 2 backup movies) are eligible for the Top 5 ranking, so no blockbuster that gets released last-minute into the season will be eligible. If a movie that appears in over 30% of Top 5 predictions moves out of the season, then affected players' Top 5 predictions will be automatically adjusted with what was their next highest-predicted movie.
BOX OFFICE QUESTIONS - A box office question will be voided in the following scenarios:
-The movie with the release date change is specifically mentioned in the question
-The movie with the release date change appears in over 30% of player responses to the question
