No. 8) Will at 3 sequels, prequels, reboots or anything similar go on to drop more than 60% domestically from its previous franchise installment? (For this question purpose: Spiderman Homecoming is following ASM2, Despicable Me follows Minions, Wonder Woman follows Suicide Squad, Annabelle 2 follows Conjuring 2, I can’t think of any more that aren’t obvious right now) No. 9) Will any film in the top 15 have a multiplier below 2.3? Yes. 10)Will Sci-Fi films (anything that BOM lists as Sci-fi or XXX/Sci-fi [so that means GOTG2 for example is not Sci-fi for this question) combine to make more than 700M domestically by the end of the game?

Yes. 12) Will at least three out of Luc Besson, Christopher Nolan, Michael Bay, Ridley Scott and Edgar Wright have their highest grossing film not involving Batman or Transformers this summer (obviously with Michael Bay I mean will his 5thTransformers film outgross every non-transformers film he has done?)

Nope. Q3) The current top 6 "All Time May Open Weekends" (Domestically) occurred on the 1st weekend of the month (in the respective year). In what position will Guardian's of the Galaxy Vol. 2 open in (in the top 6)? (If you don't think it will open in the top 6 then put 7th - remember 6th is Iron Man 2 @ 128m)?

Yes. Q13) Both Pirates & Transformers are up to the 5th Film. the 4th film in both Franchises made more than 1 billion worldwide. Can the 5th film in both franchises repeat this performance? Yes. Q14) Will a film released domestically make more in an International Market (must be a single market such as China, United Kindom, etc) this summer (Both markets must release during the game and be elegible for the top 15 domestic - ie. as per the list of films Chasmmi has posted) ? Yes - Transformers in China to be specific.
  2. Yeah, I think it's probably been rewritten at least 4 times now. I'm more referring to it being rewritten again. Anyway looks like it might be false, seems like he was only approached to direct the film, but nothing has actually come of it, yet.
  3. Would be cool, but this sounds really far-fetched and unlikely. The rumor is, is that WB doesn't want the script to be re-written, so it's likely even if Zemeckis was approached, he would eventually turn it down because he didn't get final script say or something.
  4. Happy birthday @That One Guy.
  5. Actually looks like it could be better then the first film (which I like), and the second one (which I enjoyed). I like how serious they've been selling the film as, and the message seems to be more in line with the first Cars film, which is good. Amazingly I think there's only one joke in the entire trailer. Definitely seeing this one in the cinemas, although it's Pixar, so I would have seen it on the big screen regardless.
  6. 26 / 71 - Was Sandler's attempted return to the big screen. Horror dark comedy about a man who dies & finds himself trying to bargain with the Grim Reaper, but things backfire horribly and he now finds himself trying to help with his ghoulish undead deeds. Clear Minds
  7. Rip Mr. Demme. People 99% think of Silence of The Lambs, when they think of his name and it's true that it's his most notable film, however he had a wide and varying career, including several terrific documentaries / concerts. The term has existed since at least the late 60's.
  8. Honestly even though I thought B&TB was only okay, I'm actually looking forward to this film a lot. Unnecessary as hell, but hey it could be fun to watch on the big screen. Besides I doubt this film was made to push technology or anything. It was made because Disney's live-action remake films have doing so well, of course.
  9. Even if it's only a cameo or a small role, it'd be great to see Ian Malcolm back regardless.
  10. Well they've certainly matured since the days of the Minions, I must say. A former child star comes out of retirement and tries to relive his glory days when he learns that a new child is starring in a remake of one of his film. King Tut-Tut
  11. 18m total in the U.S., made 130m in China, spawned a few sequels there. In the 18th an African stumbles upon a zen temple and is trained by a master, becoming a master of the sword himself, which he uses to defend himself from the forces of evil. The Crazy Little Things
  12. That's awful man. My condolences man, hopefully things get better for your sister.
