Plus, CATS goes belly up and we tell the studio why it's a mistake to replace the original print. And BOMBSHELL... is a movie that came out.

Playmobil opens under $1 mil! Ghostbusters trailer drops! Who gets credit for Joker's billion? Plus predictions on the opening of Jumanji: Next Level, and Richard Jewell vs Mr. Rogers!

It's a historic weekend at the box office as PLAYMOBIL opens to a disgusting $668k at the weekend box office, and The B.O. Boys are figuring out what went wrong! Was it the variable pricing? The collective consciousness of the child market saying no to this outdated IP? The lack of star power? Find out! Then we look ahead to next weekend's big releases! JUMANJI is back but is the new premise too confusing, or just confusing enough? Clint Eastwood has the anti-media RICHARD JEWELL opening wide, but will a Clint-less movie about a man moving a bag be a hit at the box office? And BLACK CHRISTMAS is a movie again. Do we care? JOKER is a billion dollar baby, and this week we're carving up the money! Who deserves the credit? Todd Phillips? Joaquin Phoenix? DeNiro? The Joker IP itself? Lastly, the new GHOSTBUSTERS trailer dropped today (Paul Rudd!) and we're judging the film's box office prospects. Trailer: https://youtu.be/ahZFCF--uRY Our biggest episode ever!

A few theaters opened in Texas this week, playing new titles (TROLLS WORLD TOUR) and catalogue films (AMERICAN SNIPER). We break down attendence and speculate where PORKY'S will play first. IFC continues to report bullshit B.O. numbers to bullshit website Box Office Mojo. We shake them down! Also, NETFLIX is reporting that Chrissy Hemmy's EXTRACTION had an estimated 90 million views in 4 weeks. Too bad it's only been out for a week and a half!

We had some late breaking moves Monday night as SONY pushed it's July slate to next year! Will GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE bomb harder in 2021 than it would've in 2020? Will the cast be too old and gross looking to promote it in a year? Will Finn Wolfhard be digitally replaced by Jacob Tremblay?  Plus, THE HUNT crashes the BOX OFFICE charts. Is its surge BUG HUNTER related? We think so! And with BOMBSHELL finding it's stride on V.O.D and BIRDS OF PREY doing strong business, is Margot Robbie the breakout star of the QUARANTINE?
