    League A, if you ever want to 'pre-load' picks by sending a few options to me through private message, I am happy to put in your pick if you won't be available.

    Skitch, would you be able to do the same for League B?

    Wrinkle could go either way. It could be next year's C.S. Lewis cinematic outgrowth, but it could also tank and disappear like The Dark Tower. Sarah loves those children's books, but I never really had exposure to them at any point, so I worry about this fate for all pre-teen boys.

    Ultimately, I have more confidence in the Agatha Christie adaptation.

    I think Wrinkle's a good pick. It's Disney and it's Ava DuVernay so it'll get a whole lot of attention. At worst I think it'll make Pete's Dragon money. I think by the time it was released Sony was basically dumping The Dark Tower because they knew it sucked.

    Thought about Blade Runner, but the R rating will hurt it.
