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

    Box office numbers - just in!
    Anybody have "We Summon the Darkness" as their BP pick?
    LOL jk - but deadline really is reporting numbers.


    Box Office Mojo has been giving weekly box office numbers ... you can see how much of a drop off there has been.

    We'll be over a million per weekend by the end of the month. I don't expect the most accurately priced weeks of FML, but let's get it on!!

    @shruggs Hello @fmlqa - Any updates on the status of our game?

    They're all furloughed.

    My local multiplex just reopened. All this week it is presenting one daily showing of 1917, Sonic, Goonies, Fellowship of the Ring, Sing, SLoP2, Minions, Shrek, and 2 showings of Back to the Future.

    I don't think we're ready to "get it on".

    Hi Everyone!

    We just wanted to give you a heads-up on the game. Due to the current uncertain circumstances with theater attendance, the movie calendar, and reduced box office receipts, we are unable to start up the game just yet.

    We are constantly evaluating the state of the theater industry and we will look to reopen the game when there is enough stability and new releases to sustain it.

    Thanks and stay safe!
