    The good news about Ghostbusters: Afterlife is that Sony doesn't have a streaming service to drop it on.

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife - 48 mil
    King Richard - 12mil
    Clifford the Big Red Dog - 10mil

    Ghosts busted... it may have pulled in just under what the 2016 female-fronted outing drew, but it seems to be more critically and publicly lauded!

    As predicted the scrap for 'trapping' the closest amount was super tight with Rocky narrowly missing out on points, but she managed to invert that loss and fend yours truly off by the same amount in her Big Red Dog prediction ...it definitely seems that low-balling guesses this year is a pretty shrewd move! Yet again the Kylux duo switch positions and The Senate is held off of overtaking our own Big Dog for yet another week!

    I figured Ghostbusters would do just over the 2016 version. I went and saw it and thought it was great.

    The one I thought would do better than it did was King Richard. It's not my kind of movie, but it pretty much bombed.

    Also...
    ...I had to re-read that a few times before my brain clicked on what you were saying... I guess "female-fronted" threw me off a bit... :oops:

    In hindsight, not my best use of English :D

    But it seemed like a nicer way of saying 'largely derided' or 'lady-centric'
