Summer of many disappointing sequels? Will that keep up this weekend? We'll see.


Please provide your 6/10-12 Opening Weekend predicts for, 

Conjuring 2

Now You See Me 2



Deadline this week will be Thursday afternoon (US Eastern time), whenever I get to it. Note that we will be using our median predict rather than our mean predict going forward.

Warcraft: $70M (yes I am going to look stupid, but Blizzard has a religious cult following lol sleeper hit)

Conjuring: $31M

Now you see Me: $24M



Well, the good news is that you're *extremely* unlikely to be our worst predictor, ever. :)

Deadline dropped the ball this week, apparently so wrapped up in Warcraft's impressive overseas performance that they failed to run a piece on domestic projections. MovieWeb continued its tradition of bizarre predicts for another week, going with 19.5M for Conjuring 2 and 42.3M for Warcraft. To be fair, we had lower predicts for Conjuring 2 and higher for Warcraft, but that's why we do Medians now. Also interesting, I suspect Warcraft is the most uncertain we've ever been on a movie for which we expect a decently high OW.


Typically, Ratio is inversely proportional to a movie's expected OW and once you get over 20M or so, its typically in the the 20% kinda range. NYSM 2's 29.90% would be notable high for a movie expected to open over 20M, except that Warcraft is at 42.50%. Conveniently, we tend to do better on movies with higher Ratio's (ie. Movies we have less consensus on its OW total), so maybe that means we'll nail Warcraft. Also, Warcraft probably has the biggest gap between our Mean and Median predictions of any movie we've predicted.


Compared to other sites, we're moderately optimistic on Conjuring 2, slightly pessimistic on NYSM 2 (except for MovieWeb's nuttiness), and slightly optimistic on Warcraft.


Also, as a reminder, our prediction numbers are now the median result, rather than the mean result, of everyone's picks and revised StnDev is the standard deviation of the predictions, including the other web-sites.
