OV166 – Summer Box Office Challenge 2016

Mike returns to the podcast for our first ever Summer Box Office Challenge. We’ve each chosen our predictions for the top ten Summer 2016 domestic box office results. We’ve also guessed (likely wildly inaccurately) what the domestic gross will be for each movie in the top ten by Labor Day weekend, and we’ve also guessed highest and lowest opening weekend numbers as well as the highest and lowest Rotten Tomatoes score in the top ten.

All of this will be graded on a point system at the end of summer. The winner will get to choose a movie (with no limitations or restrictions) for the other hosts to watch and review on a future episode of the podcast.
