Double Feature: Good Boys + The Lion King

Our new Double Feature option debuts this week! It's priced at $73 FML Bux. Each Double Feature screen in your FML Cineplex will earn the weekend box office of both $Good Boys and $The Lion King.


Let us know if you have questions about Double Feature. We hope you enjoy the small twist it adds to the game. Here is the description of this new feature from our How To Play page:


  1. Some weeks will have a "Double Feature" selection available as one of the 15 FML movie options. This combines the box office of two movies into one FML screen. The movie poster will have a special "Double Feature" graphic, and the movie title will appear as DOUBLE FEATURE: Movie 1 + Movie 2. For example, if the option is DOUBLE FEATURE: Spider-Man: Far From Home + Toy Story 4, then each "Double Feature" screen in your FML Cineplex will earn the weekend box office for both Spider-Man: Far From Home and Toy Story 4.

    Cool idea. Why not put the 2 films key art in the graphic though?

    I'm sure whoever designed this bubblegum wrapper poster is really great, but...

    We considered this. Unfortunately, movie studios have strict rules about how their movie images are used.

    How about some kind of text indicating what the two movies are on the picture then, if not the official art?

    What about adding the prior week box office grosses for the two movies somewhere on the site? I know it can be looked elsewhere online but it's more convenient for the casual players (myself included) if it's readily available

    Just click to go back to last week, then click box office performance and it's there (on the website).


    On the app it's basically the same, just click this weeks previews in red after going back a week and then view all available movies

    Glad to see this here, really surprised it's not being used for the bottom of the slate at all. Seems bizarre to have these two mid-range movies lumped together while SS and Hollywoo are still out there solo. At the least, would think you'd have done SS + (GB or TLK or whatever) over these two. Still, thumbs up!

    Thanks @dylan. Most of the time, Double Feature will be used to combine lower priced movies as you're suggesting. This week had a uniquely large gap between the fifth and sixth movie that created issues during playtesting. Maxing out certain anchors left no filler options other than loading up on the sixth movie. Adding a $73 option offered more lineup possibilities than adding another lower-end option. But in the future we'll use Double Feature most often to pair the volatility of cheaper movies. Thanks for the feedback, and we hope Double Feature makes this week a little more interesting.

    Great reasoning - thank you!
