    But, yes, it is over.

    It's outside the boundary of the contest, but against expectations Sonic the Hedgehog is getting decent reviews and looking at an opening weekend of $60-70MM.

    And like the tar heels, appears to be bound to finish 15th …


    Which is worse, Terminator underperforming the animated Addams Family and Spies in Disguise, but ahead of Cats and Dolittle (Do Little?) …

    or the heels finishing behind Wake, Pitt, BC and Ga Tech?


    Rhetorical question

    The heels finishing there sounds great to me, so I’ll go with Terminator.

    I'm calling it.

    Birds of Prey did $17.1 mil over the weekend, a drop of about 48% from its opening weekend. This film is going to struggle to even get to $100 mil, let alone the $200 mil it would need to come in 5th place.

    Meanwhile, Bad Boys For Life did $11.3 mil and has now topped $180 mil in total boxoffice. I'd make it all but a lock to reach $200 mil and comfortably take 5th place in our contest over Knives Out ($161 mil) and 1917 ($144 mil).

    Mad props to Acymetric!

    -Jason "so, the next question is do I start the summer contest in April or May? April includes No Time To Die (Bond 25) which could be a real contender and make it harder to pick the top 5 of summer... but I'll leave that for another thread in a few weeks at least" Evans

    Hang on... I just had a great idea. I'll be posting a new thread very soon that will have a fun new movie boxoffice prediction contest in it. Check back soon!

    This makes me so happy. DCEU needs to learn how to make movies.

    I took my 8 year old son to see Sonic on Monday afternoon. I went in expecting the worst... and came away pleasantly surprised. There were some funny parts, some touching parts and some good video game style action. The only thing I really didn't like was Jim Carrey being Jim Carrey as the villain.

    Had this movie come out in November of 2019 (as originally planned), going up against Frozen II, and with the terrible CGI design of Sonic no way it makes 70MM opening weekend. The Internet's reaction to the CGI Sonic in the first trailer and the subsequent delay while the Sonic character was re-done probably saved this movie.

    SonPK and his high school friends saw it this weekend. He said it was better than you would expect, but still. He said the same thing about the Sonic redesign from early trailers.

    Euthanizing Rebel Wilson, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo and Judi Dench may have been gratifying to many, but I'm not sure it would have saved Cats.

    Probably would also have been frowned upon in some circles.

    Billion Dollar Box Office

    Now that the Top 5 contest has been officially decided (congrats Acymetric!) here are the results of the Billion Dollar Box Office.

    Through the end of the Presidents' Day weekend the overall winning combination is:

    Cats ($27.2), Birds of Prey ($61.9), Terminator: Dark Fate ($62.3), Joker ($335.3), Star Wars 9 ($513.2)

    Total box office of $999,815,962 for a difference of $184,038

    Our contest:
    Contest Rank Name Total Box Office Difference Overall Rank Movie List
    1 LegoBatman $896,592,847 $103,407,153 678 Maleficent 2 ($113.9)
    Jumanji: Next Level ($306.8)
    Frozen 2 ($475.8)
    2 JasonEvans $848,536,944 $151,463,056 980 Joker ($335.3)
    Star Wars 9 ($513.2)
    3 CameronBornAndBred $575,451,684 $424,548,316 2460 Terminator: Dark Fate ($62.3)
    Star Wars 9 ($513.2)


    So it looks like all I need to do to win one of these things is create my own contest

    I'm happy to do this again in the summer if anyone is interested.
