    Another week, another box office mis-forecast :rolleyes:

    Lightyear looks to have stumbled a bit against expectations and only our DogGod was able to foresee it!

    But what's this? The Yoda-Meister cutting those of us at the back some slack?!!? :eek: :D

    He's been on vacation over here in the UK... where the interwebs are powered by a combination of over-worked rodents and flea ridden peasants riding donkeys, so I'm guessing connectivity has been tough ;)

    Haha... don't be so sure - based on all the action that the place has seen it turns out that whole "Well, if there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from." quote from Luke is just down to poor marketing/media coverage from those in power and Skywalker being a bit of a disillusioned and whining 20-something :D

    Sorry dude... though if it's any consolation you only missed out on 5pts for Elvis :(


    Whoa! For the first time in ages we're actually got 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for ALL three movies this week :D

    Dogman takes the biggest points haul for this round, but with near three-quarters of us under-estimating the draw of Ethan Hawke's phone-based horror, the rest distributed fairly evenly across the rest of the field. That said though @Meister Yoda's lead remains ridiculous with @Bluemilk being his closest challenger... with exactly half the points :eek:

    June 24-26, 2022

    Elvis $31.21m
    1. @DarthSnow +15
    2. @Lazarus Dei +10
    3. @Anubis78 +5

    23.63m

    1. @Anubis78 +15
    2. @Bluemilk +10
