3. Wonder Woman
4. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
5. War for the Planet of the Apes
6. Transformers: The Last Knight
7. Cars 3
8. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
9. Baywatch
10. The Mummy Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

This Summer is going to be amazing!

1. Spider-Man: Homecoming
2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
3. Cars 3
4. Transformers: The Last Knight
5. Wonder Woman
6. War for the Planet of the Apes
7. Despicable Me 3
8. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
9. Alien: Covenant
10. Dunkirk

Honestly, I put little to no effort into it this time because clearly it makes no difference in my case.

10. The Mummy Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

I think that's a good move. I forgot about that one.

It is apparently a very popular book series, so I am going with it as a bit of a wildcard.

Ok the first weekend is out. I will post the combined picks and the grid of everyones picks soonish. Does anyone have access to the Box Office Pro guess and could they post it?

Welcome to Knocked Out Loaded for (I think) your first game with us. I will not bother with a league table this week.

Rank. Film (Total Box Office)Position Change (Week's Box Office)
1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($145,049,000)    New Entry
2. The Dinner ($755,348)    New Entry
3. Risk ($75,179)    New Entry
4. The Lovers ($70,410)    New Entry
5. Chuck ($40,416)    New Entry
6. 3 Generations ($20,118)    New Entry
7. Stalker ($19,785)    New Entry
8. Take Me ($3,258)    New Entry

Who would have thought Stalker would ever be in a US box office top 10.

After listening to the Summer movie wager episode of /filmcast I am feeling less good about my Spider-Man over Guardians decision. I must hope the public will be discerning.
