Ranking Pirates 5 over Wonder Woman looks really dumb now.

We're done here.

Last update:
october 12 The end. Frank is the winner followed by K Powers and Beck.
Next year we'll evaluate the chances of Avengers: Infinity War, an untitled Han Solo movie, Slenderman, and many more sequels & reboots like: Deadpool 2, Ocean's 8, Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Mission: Impossible 6 and Predator. Until next year!

Previous updates:
october 3 Time to correct a gross injustice. Scores for the past few weeks were incorrect due to not factoring in the Wonder Woman figures. (We must never discount Wonder Woman's figure.) So, what's this mean? It means 3rd place rightfully belongs to Beck (who brought this to my attention.) First and second place still belong to Frank and K Powers. Meanwhile Hitman's Bodyguard has climbed two spots, the only upward mover in the bunch. One question remaining is whether Dark Tower will earn another mil to overtake Atomic Blonde.
september 26 Same story as last week. But maybe Hitman's Bodyguard will eventually overtake Captain Underpants. We'll see.
