Here we are at week four of our special rules Summer Fantasy Movie League and… well…
I’m actually away. So there is no score summary or lineup review this week. But I am sure The Incredibles dominated the box office. I doubt things went down hill from an $18.5 million Thursday night preview. I might have considered a Friday/Sunday lineup with that bit of knowledge. But I stuck with my Monday Hot Picks league lineup, 2x Saturday, 1x Deadpool 2, 5x Hotel Artemis.
This week we have Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
I have to admit that I am not really a fan of the Jurassic Park follow on movies. Dinos been done since the first one for me; we don’t need this to turn into a CGI Land Before Time length series. However I am something of an outlier on that front as, when I am writing this, the forecast is for a $130 million box office take, which would boost it well beyond Solo: A Star Wars Story.
But The Incredibles 2 is still on the scene and might be big enough to reign in the dinos a bit.
Meanwhile, one of the problems I thought might occur with an early lock time seems to be coming to pass; people are forgetting to make their picks in time. Six out of 22 didn’t make the cut in time. My own habit is to make an initial pick on Monday night and copy it to all the leagues, so at least if I forget or get distracted, I have something. And, as noted, I stuck with my Monday night pick this week.
Anyway, if you’re looking for some insight on the coming week, check the TAGN league chatter channel on FML where Po often examines the week in detail.
My goal for this week is to find a decent signal or some WiFi so I can make my picks on my phone. My stretch goal is to add a picture from my current location to this post from the WP.com app.
Make your picks soon! The league locks in less than 24 hours from when this post goes live.
