    I mean, aside from an initially limited release potentially hurting it for the purposes of this game aside, this is a pretty surefire prestige crowd-pleaser. Plus all-but-assured to lock up every Best Picture, Best Actress, potential Best Supporting Actor (either split or doubled between Jenkins and Shannon), and then whoever has technical accolades up for grabs in awards season. And it's just a great movie.

    Like Wright with Baby Driver, I feel like this could finally be the perfect convergence of a specialty fanbase and general public's interests for Del Toro (for his of his non-action tentpoles, anyway) to finally make some money.
    Del Toro has never been the box office draw though. But hey, I was wrong about Edgar Wright and Baby Driver.

    And I've never won this game so there's always that.

    I don't think that movie is going to make much more than $50 million domestic. It looks drab, mainstream audience aren't going to go for a monster romance movie, and it opens in December when Christmas season is firing up as well as the Star Wars marketing campaign.

    That is probably a good estimate, since that would put it around the numbers of Fences, Lion, and Manchester by the Sea last year. But then again, you never know with awards-movies which will gain momentum and when.

    Perhaps they'll play up the Octavia Spencer factor enough and bring out that Hidden Figures audience! (Hahaha.. Imagine knowing nothing else about it....)

    Anyway, I'm bummed I missed out on taking part in one of these leagues for the second time in a row. I blame the new Television forum bumping The Kitchen Sink lower down that I don't see it as easily.

    Sorry you missed it. I did put an invite in both the Film Discussion Thread and Random Thoughts, which is about the maximum I can do without feeling like I'm annoying people. Hope you can catch it next time round.

    I think history is going to reveal that I should have taken Pitch Perfect 3 over Ready Player One.
