Fucking Kingsman. Its initial move scared me off picking Blade Runner, thinking it was surely gonna move. Yet noww they decide to push it back a week, which not only ensures Blade Runner's success, but hurts another one of my picks - American Made. F U Fox. Stop giving me fake news.

Post Re: 2017 Box Office Draft- Group 1 zwackerm leading again
Here is my take on my picks:

2. Coco - The fall/winter schedule does not have a very strong slate of family films (Ninjago, My Little Pony, The Star, Ferdinand, Jumanji). Maybe this will benefit.

6. Only the Brave - Hoping for $60m+ but there is too much competition for adult drama.

7. Downsizing - Hoping the interesting premise and awards buzz will carry this to over $90m.

10. The Commuter - I consider $30m+ a win for this with the release date change.

13. Suburbicon - This, Only the Brave, and Thank You for Your Service will cut into each other's target demo. But this could surprise if well-reviewed. $35m for now.

15. Mother! - The marketing plays on the secrecy surrounding its plot. This will work only if awareness of the film and its secrecy is high.

16. Molly's Game - Hoping for $15m or more. It depends on WOM and awards buzz.

17. Villa Capri - Under $10m likely.

19. Victoria and Abdul - $5m likely.

20. Alpha - This has potential but unfortunately it gets moved to March.

While I am still ahead in average, MGKC has passed me with a 1.2 billion total to my 1.175 billion total. Flava'd is close behind me, also beating MGKC in average, with a total of 1.151 billion.

I have 3 significant films left with a chance at 100m: Bad Moms, Greatest Showman and Ferdinand. MG's only film left with 100m potential is My Little Pony, and Flava'd has Pitch Perfect 3. So I'm thinking I have the best chance to win.

Just skimming through the lists made me think I had a chance, but MGKC is way out in front. Would need Pitch Perfect 3 to pull a Meet The Fockers. So I still would have lost even without the Kingsman move messing up my draft. That is somewhat relieving.

Chippy also has a shot with a mega Jumanji breakout. Would he come back to the site for atleast the victory celebration?

I could possibly pass MGKC if Greatest Showman, Ferdinand and Shape of Water stay leggy, but it seems Chippy has this in the bag.

I ranked the below by box office gross only, non-group specific. Whoever had the two highest cumulative grosses got first and second place in any given year.

2017
Winner SolC9 (5th picker)
Runner-up Chippy (6th picker)

2016
Winner Corpse (1st picker)*
Runner-up BK (6th picker)*

2015
Winner _axiom (6th picker)*
Runner-up MGKC (2nd picker)*

* = same group

Interestingly it doesn't matter what place you pick, and picking first certainly is no guarantee of success. The year is just such an unknown. We never truly know what will be the big grossers and which ones will fail or move out of the calendar.

Also, unbeknownst if everyone played every year or not, those are 6 different people on podium finishes. Anybody can do well!

3 of my Top 4 picks absolutely crushed it. And Jumanji may power me to the Overall #1 spot.

I'm going to pass you. The grosses are still being counted until the 31st. I'm just calling it now because there's no way anyone else can win.

I don't think you'll pass SolC9 as you are about $80m behind and he still has PP3 getting him another $10m. I don't think Jumanji is getting another $90m by 31st Jan.
