Temporarily Pausing Fantasy Movie League

Dear FML Community,


Like you, we have been monitoring the changes being put into place to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Given the impact on the movie industry, including changes in premiere dates and movie theater closures, we're anticipating challenges in being able to provide you with up-to-date box office information in the coming weeks. We also want to make sure we're doing everything in our power to help our employees stay healthy and safe.


Due to this, we have come to the difficult decision to temporarily pause Fantasy Movie League.


You'll be able to see the final results for the weekend of March 13-15, and your standings within your leagues will update based on that. That standing will remain until we resume. We don't know quite yet when we will be able to start up again, but we will let you know as soon as we do.


Thank you for being part of the FML community. During this hiatus, we encourage you to stay connected with others through Chatter and on noovie.com.


Stay safe,
The FML Team

    And if you haven't joined the discord server yet, what are you waiting for? Come hang out with other FML players while we wait for the game to start back up.

    Do you have a plan for leagues with prizes? Will those resume when FML resumes? Will they be truncated? Will the prizes be impacted?

    An extremely tough, but correct, decision. You guys have worked 255 weeks straight to run this game for us, and it took a global pandemic and Regal shutting down to pause it. Kudos to you guys, and hopefully the FML team is safe during the coming weeks/months.


    Are there any plans on:


    a) running something between now and whenever everything reopens?
    b) has there been discussions on what is done with SS? Will we start a new season, or will these first two weeks be rolled into the next?

    While I was legitimately looking forward to playing with a Bonus Bar of $399.99, I admit that this is probably the smart move. Hope the industry comes back soon!

    Thanks for the update! I wonder when all theaters just stop in general.

    @plexy, regarding prizes, we are working through everything and will provide updates as things become more certain. It may depend on when we unpause FML.
