What Are The Chances Captain America Civil War Outgrosses Batman V. Superman On Opening Weekend?
Readers of this blog and listeners to our podcast know that I love box office numbers. I’ve also recently become intrigued by the Good Judgment project after hearing about them on the Freakonomics podcast. Their website has a number of political, news, and pop culture questions they invite the public to predict and they recently asked what were the chances that Civil War would outgross Batman v. Superman (which brought in an amazing $166M on opening weekend).
I was surprised to see so many people saying Civil War would outgross Batsoup with almost not thought into the matter, so I decided to make my own prediction and analysis. Jump after the break to read why I think it is unlikely for Civil War to beat Batsoup and let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition- Watson’s Rebuttal
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!

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition
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!

Fantastic Four Might Be Rejoining The Marvel Cinematic Universe
According to Den of Geek, a deal may have been struck to bring the Fantastic Four back into the fold of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While news broke earlier that Fox was ordering two X-Men based TV shows, Hellfire and Legion, it seems that Fox may have received the new TV rights in exchange for bringing the FF back into the main MCU.
This Fantastic Four deal could help explain why Fox suddenly received some broad, new rights for content in a world when Marvel is succeeding on every medium, but it also may help explain why three MCU films are scheduled to be released in 6 months of 2020. Official details haven’t been released yet so stay tuned for more on this intriguing development.
