  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a $40M openng for a $190M budgeted movie would be considered good, especially with BATB coming in for the kill next weekend. Yet here we are. And I'm pretty sure WB expected this to come close to Godzilla's total when they gave it that budget.
  2. Haven't really been active outside the game on the forum lately so it's nice to see that I can still rustle up a 3rd place finish even with limited engagement. Congratulations to Wrath and the old man on their great results and a big thanks to chas and jj for running the show smoothly.
