Deja Entendu

Previously on Adam Riff™:
On May 1, Adam Robot and I each drafted 10 films set for release between May 1 and August 31. Whoever's slate earns the most money domestically by Labour Day wins. I won a pre-draft game of rock-paper-scissors to select first, after which we alternated selections.

Let's check the board:

1. Captain America: Civil War $377,193,948
2. Finding Dory
3. Suicide Squad
4. Independence Day: Resurgence
5. Star Trek Beyond
6. Jason Bourne
7. Now You See Me 2
8. The Purge: Election Year
9. The Conjuring 2
10. The Secret Life of Pets


Adam Robot
1. The BFG
2. Alice Through the Looking Glass $34,174,000
3. X-Men: Apocalypse $80,000,000
4. Ghostbusters
5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
6. Warcraft
7. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising $40,680,180
8. Pete's Dragon
9. Central Intelligence
10. Ice Age: Collision Course

I was gonna draft Alice Through the Looking Glass with my third pick. Dodged a bullet.

Seven releases in June – four for me, three for Adam Robot. I smell blood in the water.
