That said you should have tweaked your predictions after looking at almost all other predictions. You were ridiculously high. There is no reason for this to open that high. :P

That's not in the spirit of the game, imo. And that's also not why I'm campaigning for earlier predictions. My predictions are what they are, but everyone should be competing fairly.

You have a point. Shack, may be we should use instant message to send predictions as well and we can share final predicts after deadline.

I made a mistake in bumping up my Garfield OW. Should have rather bumped up Furiosa bit more. That said this game still has a long runway. June predictions will make or break many players.

Where May seemed to have modest openings, I'm feeling a lot of upside potential on June on Horizons and Bad Boys 2.

Bad Boys 2 I think is most primed for a big surprise. It won 2020 afterall even if a strange year with only 2 months of real box office, post Oscars slap, the buddy action comedy still has a lot of appeal.

Smith has been so absent during the cool down period so think there's a willingness to see this and not feel as guilty, especially with a movie title "Bad Boys."

With inflation, and the gap, feels like it's going to overperform.

You are too high but I see it do somewhere between Rev's and PE's predicts.

Edit: on 2nd thought Flip is going to be not that far off. :funny:

flip1 20.8
Rev 29.2
Keyser 43.2
rftapeout 49.2
stuffp 54.2

zwackerm 67.5

publicenemy#1 91.3
Keyser 110.3
Rev 121.9
rftapeout 135
MadGez 140.6
stuffp 149.15
O 159.3
Flava'd 177.8
Shack 197.3
Algren 234.3

I believe this one is a wrap as flip would need to be on the right side of predicting 47 million to zwackerm's 35 for Horizon and that's not happening. publicenemy has 19 million prediction for it, however his Bikeriders and Quiet prediction is almost identical to zwackerm, so it's not enough.

As suggested earlier I will try an earlier sign up thread for July/August later this week

Zwackerm has this in the bag. Its amazing he got IO2 on the point. But it was inline with the club he created though he lost trust in the movie near release. :-) I lost out as I was conservative with the movie. So its not always about keeping it low for all the movies. That hurt so many at the bottom.

I think when it was first announced we confused it for a 2 part Yellowstone movie. After we knew it wasn’t, we hoped that audience would still come out

We already have enough presale information for 3 July releases. DM4, Twisters and of course Deadpool. So it should not matter when you post the information. That said its just few movies. The rest are all unknown. Unlike say June, the August releases are hard to predict anyway.

Once Horizon's trailer hit it was over for it, it looked like a tv movie, not a summer blockbuster aiming for Yellowstone audience.
