Well I didn't want to have Civil War as n1 because, well, where's the fun in that ?

But I also think Finding Dory is in a really good spot, generation wise. People in their early 20's (hi) grew up with Finding Nemo (it's one of the first films I remember seeing in the theater), it's beloved and Pixar just proved last year they can still do great numbers. Also I don't see much else competing with it in June : it's basically just Independence Day and TMNT I guess ? Also I'm hopeful it will be good.

Neigbhors 2 is my "rauchy comedy" slot, because looking at previous years there's generally one of those.

And after Jurassic World I'm guessing a nostalgic 90's blockbuster has to do well, right ?

Finding Nemo is way older than I realised.

Portentous music plays and a middle aged group of men and women in scruffy unfashionable clothes loom out of the darkness.
