    Weekend Results:

    John Wick 3 $ 56,818,067
    1. @Meister Yoda - $47m
    2. --
    3. --

    A Dog's Journey $ 8,030,085

    1. @Anubis78 - $8m -- nailed it!!
    2. @DarthSnow - $7.2m
    3. @Meister Yoda - $9m

    The Sun is Also a Star $ 2,511,530

    1. @Maximus - $2.5m -- nailed it!!
    2. @Meister Yoda - $3m
    3. @Lazarus Dei - $3.4m
    JW3 gave us our first "near miss" of the year by outperforming almost all of our expectations, with our little green friend being the only one within $10m... barely! @Meister Yoda also hit the cycle this week with a first, second, and third place finish in each movie, and with that builds a nice lead. Way to go!
    Elsewhere, the FO has suffered their first defeat, but will surely be back with a vengeance...

    P.S. - The "nailed it!!"s aren't given out lightly and will be worth something later in the game. Just throwing that out there. :)

    Holiday weekend coming up with Memorial Day, so keep in mind you're predicting 4 days instead of 3.

    Brightburn

    Actually Addi, you may yet squeeze some points out of this one.... better hope that total stays under $90m! Gonna be close, the estimate is right on it at the moment at $90,400,000....
