That takes skill.

It appears the 2 less players from last game have been carried over. Will fix in a minute.

Norm of the North will be losing 905 theaters, so it becomes the current leader of this question.

Still very beatable - for example, Blackhat last year lost a whopping 2,332 theaters in its third weekend.

Yep, with its PTA, The 5th Wave is bound to lose a lot. More than a thousand? Will be interesting to see.

Jane Got a Gun might be a contender, too, if it flops spectacularly. There will be 1,210 locations with the option to drop it to clear space for Deadpool, How to Be Single, and Zoolander 2.

I don't do well in this game either. But I like it because it forces you to make long term predictions instead of relying on tracking. Also, I like that it doesn't require weekly predictions. Send it in at watch. I'll keep playing.

Both Dirty Grandpa and 5th Wave losing less than 500 theatres.

Must be because SB weekend is a dead one.

Well, next weekend Dirty Grandpa and Fifth Wave go head to head.

Norm of the North maintains its lead. Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is a huge contender for this in 2 weeks - arguably a lock to take it.

I'm loving that the realists like me, Price and BK are at the top, and the dreamers like Jack Sparrow, Chippy and zwackerm are near the bottom. ;)

I wasn't even in the top half of predictors' grosses. I hardly qualify as a dreamer.

Only 3 people put Deadpool in the top 3 for the top 5 in this game. If Deadpool outgrosses BvS, nobody wins (this is at least possible now with DP breaking out huge).

Riggs has DP at #2, but Zootopia would have to make less than Kung Fu Panda 3, which is unlikely with Panda underperforming a bit.

Birdman and I have Deadpool at #3. For me, Jungle Book would have to make between BvS and DP, and for Birdman it's Zootopia. Both unlikely with Deadpool likely to do close to 300M.

Very high chance nobody gets the top 5 right, again.

Riggs was the highest predictor of Deadpool with $205m. Amazing that it will eclipse that by $100m+.
