Summer Movie League: Week 16

Recap:

The Secret Life of Pets surprised this weekend, exceeding projections to take in $104.4 million domestically at the box office.  Thus begins Greg’s ascent up the standings jumping Tim thanks to the $77.3 million he banks from Pets performance.  It has a very good chance to hit the $250 cap or come very close.  At 74% on the T-meter, it will need to make $337.8 million for Greg to hit $250.  That is $233 million more than its opening weekend.  The 2nd weekend numbers will be very telling whether that is attainable or a tall order.

Also opening this weekend was Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, which took in a modest $16.6 million, but with a 39% T-meter, only generated $6.5 million for Paula.  That was her last release, and so it looks like she will max out at around $380 or so, depending on how The Legend of Tarzan continues to perform.

Overall, Greg will leapfrog me in the standings this coming weekend, and he probably has the strongest odds to win right now, given that The Secret Life of Pets should make at least $200 million for him, and he’s still got Ghostbusters and Jason Bourne, both of which should net him at least $100 million.

Preview:

This weekend features only one release of a rostered movie, Ghostbusters.  Projections have placed it in the $40-50 million range, and should come in 2nd to The Secret Life of Pets.  So far the T-meter has it at 75% with 112 reviews.  There has been a lot of discussion and controversy surrounding this movie, and most of the positive reviews are qualified in their praise.

Beyond this weekend, there are no reviews out yet for Star Trek Beyond.  Meanwhile, Ice Age: Collision Course has jumps up to 24%.  Lights Out looks like it could be another missed opportunity as it is rated at 100% with 8 reviews.  Sausage Party still maintains a 100% rating.
