Hello fellow FMLers!
Welcome to the Weekly FML Spotlight! My name is Jeffery but you may know me better as Katniss Cinnaplex. Each week I'll be highlighting the top players in all of the public leagues (FML League, Monthly Matchup and Season Showdown) and tracking the race to the top of the leaderboards.
Let's take a look back at how this weekend shook out. We kicked off the FML Summer season with two large new releases: The Secret Life of Pets 2 and Dark Phoenix. Both movies came in below what was expected from the pros which left Aladdin to anchor the Perfect Cineplex (PC). Three screens of Aladdin were joined by a screen of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum and Avengers: Endgame as well as three screens of this week's Best Performer (BP) A Dog's Journey.
In Season Showdown league 94 players are starting off tied for first after hitting the PC. The last two season champions each started their season with a PC, and these 94 players will look to extend the streak. Each week I'll highlight the top five players (based on tiebreaker) as well as a randomly picked player with the perfect cineplex (using a random number generator).
We'll also be tracking PC streaks for Season Showdown. This week three players earned their second straight PC! Congrats to @JIMMY, @SHAUNA and @HMMMMMMM!
This past week also kicked off a new Monthly Matchup for June! If you are looking for a shorter contest then this is the one for you. Normally this league will last for four weeks with the winner receiving $1000 in cash gift cards! For the 82 players with a PC that money just got a lot closer and more real. Here are the top 5 (plus one) for week
The FML League
There were 99 PCs in the FML League and I was not one. The FML League is the simplest and most difficult league out there. It starts fresh each week but a Perfect Cineplex is hardly ever enough to win. You need to be spot on with your tiebreaker as well! This week the prize was a Jean Grey figurine signed by Stan Lee as well as an FML "Winner" t-shirt. Out of those 99 players the one with the closest tiebreaker was…@DAMIENROCKS whose tiebreaker was only off by $113,196!
This weekend players will be competing for a cast signed Men in Black: International poster (Hemsworth, Thompson & Neeson) and an FML "Winner" t-shirt. Good luck, and don't forget to set those tiebreakers!
