You gonna see Babewatch?

Looking forward to Wonder Woman!

Last update:
may 23   Alien: Covenant gets in at 2nd place. Diary of a Wimpy Kid isn't doing too well. Scooch gets in first place perhaps largely due to an unfortunate pick for no. 5, McPickles follows (unfortunate pick for no.3) and Beck takes 3rd (probably due to his no. 8 pick).
So far I've seen Guardians, King Arthur and Alien: Covenant and have enjoyed all three. Though I will say that the latter didn't really have a jump-in-your-seat moment.

Previous updates:
may 18   King Arthur is under-performing (I'll be checking that out personally, though). Not really a Mother's Day movie, though, right? — I took Dead Awake off the list because it made very little money. Some initial ranking figures are posted. Takincare, Beck and Knoxville claim the top 3 spots.
may 7   I let Knoxville sneak into the playing field even though he was a day late — cuz I'm nice. Word is that so far Guardians Of the Galaxy 2 has brought in 145 million domestically.
may 4   The Top 20 lists are in the grid! We have 24 contestants this year. As for movie changes, we have a new horror flick, DEAD AWAKE opening on May 12th. THE NUT JOB 2 has moved up a week to August 11th. And both VILLA CAPRI and the untitled Disney movie have moved out of this summer's line-up. THE BEGUILED has been added to the line-up since it was included in a top 20 list (it's not a wide release movie but still fair game.) At this point changes to your lists are not allowed, but if I've made a mistake with your list in the grid, let me know and I'll get it sorted out.

Top 20 Summer Movie Predictions of 2017

Welcome to the 17th annual summer box office challenge.
On this page are the top 20 box office predictions made by all the contestants for this summer's crop of blockbusters, hopefuls, and worthless crap.

All eligible contestants will have submitted their top 20 predictions to me by the due date of MAY 3rd.

All of the predictions are for movies released from MAY 1ST through AUGUST 31ST. Predictions will not be tampered with once the challenge begins, even if the predictions are completely bone-headed.
