    Summer 2022 Box Office Movie Top 5 (with Poll)

    Knock on wood, but for the first time in three years, we might actually have a "normal" summer movie season. With that, let's start the DBR bi-annual movie poll. From the films below, pick the Top 5 you think will end up as the Top 5 in the US domestic box office (per Box Office Mojo). To me, a few stand out, but it's a pretty strong list overall. Something will likely disappoint.

    The last option is for Other. If you pick this, select the movie you think it will be in the comments. Good luck all. Poll closes May 4th. After that you can still enter but need to put your picks in the bottom (and you can't pick a movie that has already been out for day or longer). I'll post mine on May 4th. Otherwise you could use that as the picks that definitely won't win.

    Dr Strange and Thor vs Super Pets

    Is MCU vs DCEU even an argument these days?

    I doubt I'll see any of them in a theater, but I've voted. Those pet movies are something the kids would want to see, right? I look forward to the Top Gun moving coming to a small screen in my living room...
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    There are 4 no-brainers. You don't even need to think to pick them.

    The 5th is a really tough call. I went kids movie over old nostalgia action, but I could be wrong.

    But, I think the 4 no brainers are a lock... I think.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Top Gun was the #1 grossing movie of 1986 and it wasn't particularly close.

    More than half these movies just sell themselves, like they don't even need marketing.
    "Hey kids, you were born nine months after your parents saw Top Gun."
    And the best movie commercial of all time,
    "Hey kids, people are going to get eaten by dinosaurs, in a movie that your parents saw nine months before you were born, starring those same actors."

    But no self selling marketing could outsell a still photo of Buzz Lightyear, with the announcement
    "Hey kids, nine months before you were born, your parents went to infinity and beyond!"


    I guess someone could toss out a "Hey kids, your nerdy parents read about Dr. Strange. In a comic book. Nine months before you were born."


    Long story short, lots of parents gonna be taking their kids.

    How did Independence Day: Resurgence work out? I expect Top Gun will be better and do better, but I'm not sure it is enough to carry it.

    Not even comparable. The original ID4 was just a typical blockbuster disaster movie. Top Gun was a romance (Mav and Charlie), a buddy film (Mav and Goose), a tragedy (Goose), an action film, a hard hitting drama depicting tensions with Russia at the height of their cold war power, the greatest movie soundtrack in history, and it featured really awesome jets and aircraft carriers. ALL IN THE SAME MOVIE!

    ID4 can not even be remotely compared to the masterpiece that was Top Gun! Mods, would a permaban on Acymetric be appropriate for suggesting such a thing?

    JE - my problem is that I see more than 5 no brainers - Top Gun, Dr Strange, Thor, Gru, Lightyear and Pets. And thatís not counting Nope and Bullet Train (which looks great) or Jurassic ir the other kids movie. Or a sleeper.

    And you left off Dominion, which is also in there, as in total lock.

    This is a very hard year.

    Oops, I just noticed you tail ended you comment with "Jurrasic".
    Actually surprised you are selling that one so short, since in my mind even with all the "kids" movies and Marvel out there, there isn't a snowball's chance that a series that has taken 30 years to complete, and is bringing back all of the living actors, and literally paved the way for every summer blockbuster that you have seen ever since,
    Isn't Number One.

    (It will be)

    So, are X-Men movies totally over? They were the jam, pre-Marvel.

    Ugh, Box Office Mojo used to be so much easier before it got bought by IMDB.

    Marvel has had the rights for a few years now. I think a Fantastic 4 film is in the works. From what I’ve read, the integration of X-Men into the MCU will be slow but I trust Marvel Studios to knock it out of the park.

    Minions vs. Top Gun for the fifth spot was a tough one for me. Just a straight guess in the end.

    Seems fair. I mean, the X-Men movies with Hugh Jackman etc were really a revolution in comic book movies. Then, they launched the next generation (McAvoy) and the first one was okay. But they fell off a cliff. I don't think I watched the Phoenix movie or Apocalypse all the way through.

    And Logan was just a stunning movie.

    I'd love to see them get their traction again.

    Yeah for sure. They have had some good movies in there but really the only characters they nailed were Wolverine, Magneto, and X. IMO.

    Do you mean the first or second generation of movies? Because I thought the first generation was solid all the way through. Well, except for Halle Berry, though I would argue Alan Cumming more than made up for her.

    Second generation - with Wolverine as the holdover (smart move) I thought Beast was good. McAvoy and Fassbender were very good. Quicksilver was solid as well.

    Anyways, to me it was the writing that was SO strong in the good movies, and clearly an afterthought in the weak ones. They wasted some good characters and very good actors.
