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|
|1. The BFG|
|2. Alice Through the Looking Glass||$34,174,000|
|3. X-Men: Apocalypse||$80,000,000|
|5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows|
|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.
