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!
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
I was tumbling along on (you guessed it) Tumblr when…. OOOOOOOO… OOOOOOO…. Luke! My draw dropped. How was this not published with the recent release of the new Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens from EW. If you haven’t seen them, that’s okay, we posted them after the break. But LUKE! That’s the real find. Who else is as excited about his new look? It’s very Obi-wan, right?
I am skeptical the more they announce new additions to the next X-Men movie, but the amazing Oscar Isaac playing the titular villain keeps me coming back to excitement.

I was hoping when I heard Ex Machina, that it was the Brian K Vaughn comic series that was being adapted. This is not that series, but it looks damn good. Blur your eyes, and it is a Blade Runner prequel starring a pair of Episode 7 actors: Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleason. The trailer, after the click, got me interested in this project really fast when it which dropped this week.
Jenny has complained several times on the Gabbing Geek podcast about how Batman v Superman is turning into Batsoup with all the characters being cast. Maybe X-Men: Apocalypse is the next soup du jour, because after ALL the casting news of late on the next franchise installment featuring the mutie scum, we now have a new Nightcrawler.
All three of the new X-Men, younger versions of Jean, Storm, and Cyclops have been cast for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
Time travel makes all things possible. Because X-Men: Days of Future Past employed the ol’ “time travel to fix problems” move, we will see Wolverine and folliclely UNchallenged Professor X cultivating the talents of younger versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey. Such a reboot like that could only be found in….well….in an X-Men COMIC BOOK. So now, we get to recast these roles with young talent to battle Apocalypse. Who will it be???
Back when George Lucas was making the sequels to Star Wars (the original one), he was able to keep a lot of things secret simply by filming under an alternate title like Blue Harvest (which sounds like the title of a 90’s era softcore porn thriller starring Shannon Tweed). Today, with the interwebs, camera phones, and the hula hoop all the rage, it has gotten a lot harder! Time to bring in the lawyers!!!!
