Awards Week 10: Pro Forecasts, Lineups

Below is a collection of forecasts and links to the Lineup Calculator given those forecasts (unforecasted films set to their Monday defaults) to see if a pattern emerges.

Lineup Summary

Todd Thatcher: 2x Rings + 4x Monster Trucks + 2x Moana
Deadline: 6x TSBU + Sing + The Founder
ProBoxOffice: Split + 7x XXX
BoxOfficeReport: 3x Hidden Figures + Rogue One + 4x Monster Trucks
BoxOfficeMojo: Rings + 7x XXX "Trending Now" as of:

2/21 8:25p PST: 50 Shades Darker (12%), Rings (6%), Hidden Figures (6%), Split (6%), A Dog's Purpose (6%)


Wow, who saw that 7x XXX thing coming in what is already a testosterone-soaked weekend? And what's up with 50 Shades Darker presales? I couldn't make it through the original when I was getting it for free on HBO in a hotel room.

FWIW, 6x TSBU lineups were high on the list for both BOM and PBO and I was leaning that way until I saw the reviews. I have no freaking clue right now.

Details below, updated as possible.

    Bump for Deadline update, although take it with a grain of salt given that they only forecasted 4 films.

    @Dead-ET: BOR usually comes in between 5p and 7p Pacific each Wednesday.
