Yeah, there's not been any time limit.

You could foreseeably wait until November to pick too, lol.

I was hoping Paddington to break out a little. Project Almanac was such a bad pick LOL.

So far I'm not very happy. I expected Wedding Ringer to do better, and Tomorrowland's Super Bowl ad was a dud. There is just no buzz yet for that.

On the plus side, it doesn't look like Focus will bomb, and Minions still looks really strong.

I'd say that so far, all entries have underperformed relative to expectations of the picker.

Taken 3 is burnt up rather quick and both Paddington and Wedding Ringer weren't strong enough OW to get to desired totals.

Both Almanac and Blackhat have been absolutely awful picks, but it's not that easy to say they always looked like so.

So far, both WIB2 and BND have outgrossed picks made by pickers.

Later in the year there will be bound to be many more even excluding ones that staked out dates after our draft.

I think this must be a record for number of films available post-Draft. Normally studios have got their lineups set except for late in the year (Oscar films + December). We're still getting films to fill up summer and October has had like 3 films added.

First Round 3 pick is up for Group 2 with Flava'd's 50 Shades.

MGKC's Kingsman goes up against the hugely successful SpongeBob in Round 7 with SolC9's Wedding Ringer's decent gross already outshadowed in 1 weekend.

Looks like my 11th round pick Aloha might have some potential with the new trailer released. Looks like I'm going to need it to do well with underperformances likely by some of my other picks. It certainly helps that it stars Cooper, who is red hot off American Sniper.

Yes I could definitely see a sleeper hit in Aloha.

I think the best way to compare is to compare rounds instead of overall.

To win you need to beat every movie in your round or have a good lead as opposed to comparing Cinderella to Hot Tub Time Machine 2 for example.

In your draft, the active rounds are:

Round 5: Focus (SolC9) vs Chappie (axiom)
Round 7: Spongebob (zwackerm) vs Kingsman (MGKC) vs Wedding Ringer (SolC9)
Round 9: Unfinished Business (SolC9) vs Jupiter Ascending (Corpse) ------> lol this is an absolute washout
Round 11: Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Kenspy) vs HTTM2 (Flava) vs Almanac (axiom)

That's very rough of course.

Spongebob has a nearly $100m advantage over Wedding Ringer in Round 7.

That looks complicated. Doing it overall will be a lot more exciting because rank will constantly change. One person could go from 6th to 1st when a big movie opens. It will be a real race.

So the -300,000,000 should be added when Avengers opens? I think that makes the most sense. Otherwise, they will look to be in the lead but not actually.

It should be added after it crosses $300 mil, imo.
