    Sigh. Me and my big fat mouth...
    While official numbers aren't in yet, The Meg definitely is eating Christopher Robin for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner...

    True to my word here are your credits, you scoundrels!
    :cool:

    Well thank you, Lord Commander. But I wasn't even a part of the last bet... The credits are mine now nonetheless.

    I meant "you all" as in everyone playing the game, regardless of you being in the last batch of guesses. That's my current level of box office disgust -- throw away credits because numbers obviously don't matter. :p

    Don't go spending it all in one place now!

    Probably it’s not out on general release in the U.K until the end of August.

    It was a limited release, yes. Generally we only do wide releases, but if there is interest in doing smaller films that only get 100 theaters instead of 1000+, I'm all for it. We just will need to make that clear from the get go so that we can adjust our guesses accordingly.

    Last month, there was a limited release of Sorry To Bother You which we didn't do, but guessed it the next weekend for its wide release. For the record, this is where I get the movie selection from:
    http://www.firstshowing.net/schedule2018/

    I don't see a wide release of Blackkklansman listed, so if you guys would like to guess it we can include it this weekend. For having a limited opening, it really did pretty good this weekend. And its definitely something I'd like to see!
