    Slightly O/T, but I reckon Marvel will come out on top rather than SW.
    It’s a far newer franchise and very much ‘of now’, so has the momentum of all fans being behind it rather than suffering from generational splits based on which trilogy was being released at the time.

    Either way though, the numbers are gonna crush it with Endgame, which is going to go down as the peak Marvel cinematic moment.

    Endgame is slaying at the BO. Like a few of you I thought about predicting 300 mil. It may go over 300mil.

    So I heard $350m and fastest film to a global $1bn ever?!?! I can’t imagine that’s gonna be topped any time soon... no franchise has the juggernaut behind it that Endgame has.

    Just ridiculous. That is quite the accomplishment!! I have yet to see it, but am hoping to checking it out soon.

    Definitely looking like we're all a bunch of losers here right out of the gate.

    Looks like I didn't miss much in the first round.
    But maybe it should be more like +/- 5% I think $10m might be a lot if the movie is expected to gain only $10m :cool:

    Yeah, not too worried about adjusting the window for smaller films. Whereas for the blockbusters like Avengers, we guessed from ~$270m - $290m, our guesses will be a lot closer together for something like next week's Intruder or Long Shot that have much lower expectations. So hopefully the problem just takes care of itself. If not, at least we'll finally put some people on the leaderboard.
    :D

    [​IMG]

    Bock Bock.
    :p


    So, we are on to the next round! No leaderboard updates yet, since no one has won anything yet. Let's change that!

    Opening this weekend:

    UglyDolls

    The Intruder

    Long Shot


    Be sure to submit guesses for each of these! And if not sure what these movies are, each title is a link to that movie's IMDB page.
    Good luck!
