These... look awful. At least many of them do.
My take: PBO does not know things this week.Nov 30, 2016, 4:03pm PSTEdited
Yeah, PBO has high hopes for both ALLIED and ARRIVAL, and they seem to like HACKSAW RIDGE's chances at a strong hold as well. I think those three will end up with some of the better holds this week, but I don't think they will do nearly as well as PBO is projecting.
On the flip side, they are quite down on the lone newbie this week, INCARNATE, projecting it to finish lower than even I expected.Nov 30, 2016, 4:06pm PSTEdited

That's a lot of percentages divisible by 5. Smells lazy.Nov 30, 2016, 4:07pm PST
WHOA! Lay off the turkey leftovers ProBO - tryptophan does not improve mental acuity.
Does anyone know if ProBO is hiring? Asking for a friend ... named Roger ;-)Nov 30, 2016, 4:10pm PST
@Backseat Second your thoughts, they seem to have failed to factor last week's holiday bump (yet again) for at least 5 of the movies predicted. And Moana, FB & Dr Strange seem to be straight copies of their comps.Nov 30, 2016, 4:12pm PST
M- I thought you weren't going to be so Verbal anymore?
I'd be surprised if anything held at 35% or better.Nov 30, 2016, 4:15pm PST
For anyone who remember's ComingSoon's Weekend Warrior column, it's back! (Though at a different site.)Nov 30, 2016, 4:24pm PST
PBO is horrid coming off holiday weekends, details at eleven.Nov 30, 2016, 4:25pm PST
Wait... M37 already broke his dramatic pledge from like an hour ago.Nov 30, 2016, 4:31pm PST
