Your first two picks are fine, but A Wrinkle in Time is looking at the $50m range, not the $150m+ range that a third pick should be. To each his own, but I see AWiT failing to even reach $35m.

I hope it can do well if only for your draft total, but I see another Disney fail here, even worse than The BFG or Pete's Dragon.

I was deciding between Wrinkle, Ready Player One, and Rampage. I picked Rampage as it looked like an easy sell. I think all three can do $100m+.

A Wrinkle in Time might not do huge numbers, but I see no reason for it not to do on par with Tomorrowland at the very least.

Which did $93m. Hardly "third pick" material. ;)

Going first just helps too damn much. nghtvsn has already won this group. :funny:

No he hasn’t. Go back to your own group :P


I was thinking a modified snake order like:
123456
654321
654321
123456

Could more evenly balance out the potential grosses of the first 3 picks for each.
With a $500m or $550m cap you're really only getting 3 maybe 4 films that could come close to that, and then there's quite a big drop for films reaching for $400.
By not letting #1 pick back to back until after the 3rd pick it should maybe more evenly level the playing field.
Just a thought, there might be flaws in my theory too.

I think that is a great idea. Maybe that can be implemented for 2019.

That's always been a flaw with the game, but I don't think someone with the first pick has ever actually won.

I'm not picking duds like I did last time I played this. I picked too many comedies that just tanked like Unfinished Business...#nomorevincevaughn
