I’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers. His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak. He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter. In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil. So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number. We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions. NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!
One year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out. My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others. But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016. Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!
Watson and Ryan hold down the fort for Episode 54 of the Gabbing Geek podcast while Jenny recovers from Tiredofputtingupwithalltheircrapitis. It’s going around. So the Y chromosomes talk about Star Wars, Hunger Games, Mars, Alexander Hamilton, movie villains, and the summer of 2016 in movies. You should listen to it right the heck now, or jump after the break to read even more!
Universal has decided to move Pitch Perfect 3’s release date from July 21, 2017 to August 4, 2017. Movies opening in August are typically a bad sign, but Universal may be thinking that the Pitch Perfect crowd will see the movie no matter the month and this way they avoid an otherwise crowded release date.
Three other high-profile movies are scheduled for Pitch Perfect 3’s previous release date: a new Christopher Nolan film (no details yet), a new Fox/Blue Sky animated film (no details, but c’mon it’s another Ice Age film, right?), and the new Luc Besson film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (based on a graphic novel I’ve never heard of but now need to read). That’s just the third weekend in July, 2017; the first weekend still has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 while the second weekend should see the third Planet of the Apes reboot. The fourth weekend still has Sony’s latest solo Spider-Man movie on the calendar–quite a month.
Although details about Pitch Perfect 3 haven’t been revealed I’m guessing the ladies start off having fun, then they start to lose, then they participate in some strange amateur competition which motivates them to bring out their best and then they win the big contest at the end. Call it a hunch.
