I can't see that being a winning line-up. But who knows. As long as I get to $1b, I'll be happy, and just hope I don't come last. Anyway, good luck to everybody (except _axiom). :thumbsup:

I've updated all the Google Sheets, and on the Standings sheet I've added rows for grosses (which pretty much makes the Teams sheet redundant - not sure why it wasn't done like this at first).

OK, so zwackerm said swaps are allowed.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
Black Panther
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
Bohemian Rhapsody
The Equalizer 2
Bumblebee
The Nun
Game Night
The Spy Who Dumped Me
Life of the Party
Tag
Strangers: Prey at Night
Gringo
Action Point
The Darkest Minds

If anyone wants any of these, let me know what you'd be prepared to swap them for. Try to keep them in check. Obviously I won't be swapping Black Panther for Truth or Dare.

I won't be switching any films. For better or worse, I'll stick with my line up. Just read that a Mortal Engines teaser will be attached to Jedi. A teaser a year away usually only happens for huge films...

Yeah, Mortal Engines will be a major release.

Yeah, that's a good pick. I did consider it but too little was known for me to take the risk. Being based on a book wasn't enough for me. Everything is based on books. Peter Jackson was a factor but he is also just producing. The story and the title were detractors. I think it just sounds like any other YA story. And the fact it is called Mortal Engines makes me think of The Mortal Instruments.

Action Point has moved from March to May (the same weekend as Life of the Party, which I also have), so that's a positive!

So apparently Jungle Book: Origins is now called Mowgli. That will probably seriously limit its potential now.

My lineup:

January

February
Black Panther
Game Night


March
Gringo
Strangers: Prey at Night


April

May
Action Point
Life of the Party


June
Tag

July
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
The Nun


August
The Equalizer 2
The Spy Who Dumped Me


September
The Darkest Minds

October

November

Good spread, and I am happy with having more in the summer and fall, but really I am not expecting much from my lineup. This is what happens when you go last in a group of six. Just no chance really. If I am optimistic, I think I could get $600m before I even enter July. Eh, not feeling optimistic, though.

The Spy Who Dumped Me moves to August, which means it will make less. :(

Well I’m screwed. Who knew that an April movie would be the big one to move?

Can I replace New Mutants with Breaking In? That looks awesome.

That's the problem I was referring to earlier we need to keep a few back-ups in case some of the big movies move out.

I always thought it would be fun to include moves as part of the game. Like taking that into account when you made your picks.

Some dates that might interest you guys (courtesy of i.hope):

Slender Man - August 24, 2018 (previously May 18, 2018) Probably means it will tank.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web - November 9, 2018 (previously October 19, 2018) No biggie.
Holmes & Watson - December 21, 2018 (previously November 9, 2018) Much better!
Barbie - May 8, 2020 (previously August 8, 2018) OUCH!

Thanks, I've been updating the spreadsheets with every date change so far. Hopefully I don't lose interest.

Well, you and MGKC.

The rest of us stayed the fuck away from it.

Again sarcasm Algren. Remember my last pick wasn't Barbie even when I could have easily picked it up.
