It made like $140m domestic, which was way under early projections iirc. I liked it too.

I knew I should have taken Mario...but I just can't stand picking a movie that screwed me over the year before. Having said that still think Indiana Jones caps more often than not...knock on wood

Same for Cocaine Bear, but that didn't really mean much.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I just don't see how this movie is going to appeal to the masses. Social media ain't everything.

Yeah Barbie is all over the Internet, but that doesnít mean itíll cap; it could do something like 100M as a lot of people who like the memes and stuff online donít actually wanna go sit in a theater to watch Barbie for 2 hours

And it has no historical precedence

yeah Barbie could end up being huge; it's really hard to predict

it needs to be good, though; the internet loving it isn't gonna carry it to 150M+ if it's not any good....seems like it has a decent shot at being good tho, surprisingly

It's obviously way too early to call, but it's looking like mdot is pretty close to already having this on lockdown. 2 capping movies may be too much for anyone to overcome unless everything else bombs. And with Aquaman and Exorcist apparently both being colossal turds, I'm probably already drawing dead.

I thought Mario would be popular, but $550m domestically and $1.25b worldwide is ridiculous.

This is my first year in this pool. Has the cap always been $350m? It feels like without hitting 1 or 2 of those, youíre dead.

Cap is $325m. Nice try tho! Box Office Draft 2023

And yeah, if you don't hit a capping movie then you probably aren't winning, but maybe it's happened before? Hitting 2 is pretty much lights out for the rest of the competition and doesn't happen too often.

There was a time when there was no cap. I think Avengers was the movie that put an end to that, but I could be wrong. And as far as I remember the cap has never changed (barring covid years).
