Should we throw in money for the winner? Hayes and I have a side bet for this week, but we could do something that covers the season.


I'm with Wags, I don't know if you have enough people dedicated enough to put money on it. Seemed like only 4 people stuck it out.

No problem. I'm fine with just doing it for bragging rights.

Looking over everyone's picks. Some should read the 3 golden rules....
https://fantasymovieleague.com/posts/24 ... lden-rules
Rule #1: Play 4 or Fewer Movies in Your 8 Screens
Rule #2: No Blank Screens
Rule #3: Spend at Least FB$950

Purple_Hayes is betting a lot on PotC. I'm curious if Meg is playing or if it autopicked that for her?

WW cost so much, but I had to do it, it is estimated to make $100 million. That is more than some weeks make total.

Not looking good for Wags. Did you spend all your money?
Looking great for me since Everything, Everything is already the best ratio movie of the weekend and gives me that bonus. IDK how it can be determined already though.

I'm gonna be honest with you. I didn't set a lineup this week. I usually do it at work on Thursday but I was off Thursday and completely forgot to go back and do it.

bmyoungs (Main Street 3) probably could have gotten 2nd place if he did Wonder Woman, GotG, GotG, and 5 of F8 for $5 each. Having those 4 empty screens cost him that.

I only remembered to play one week and I don't think I did it right when I did.

I bet it performs better than Chris and Meg

This week was tough since the old movie cost more than the new movie. I also say every weekend is tough though

I noticed I have the option for a "Best of the Rest" wild card this week. Is that new or have I just never noticed it before?

I've read about it, but I've never seen it. It must be a freebie for people that are way behind.

It's one of the cheapest options. I figured it was just the best box for any movie not listed.

It takes the 10th slot and fills it with a movie that wasn't in the original lineup. For instance, if #10 on the list of picks ends up doing worse than #11 that isn't on the list, you get credit for the #11 movie.

8th* slot. I always think it's 10 too, but there are 8.
