It's a tough call, but I went with 22 Jump Street. The first film was surprisingly hilarious and the trailer for the second one is pretty hilarious as well. Neighbors did surprisingly well, but it's deserved as that was a pretty funny movie. If I had to say 22 has any competition, it's A Million Ways, but that one seems less sure about how it will actually turn out. The trailer is pretty hilarious though.

Who are the people voting Blended?

You can't honestly believe it could be the biggest due to a reason that's over 10 years old. Buzz just isn't there for it. And there's no way it gets even close to Neighbors' OW number and/or potential WOM.

22 Jump Street

it already has the built in fan base from the last installment and us older folks who know the Tv series, plus Johan Hill has been on a bit of a roll lately.

Blended will bomb

They're predicting an opening below $25MM and a total haul in the $50-60MM range, meaning if it opens to $30MM and closes at $90MM it'll be considered an over-achiever and even then, it'd fall well below other similarly high profile blockbuster comedies which will all make 175-200% more.

Neighbors

As popular as Jump Street is, as anticipated as the sequel is (relatively speaking) I don't see it opening to $50 million and I don't see it having legendary legs. NEIGHBORS has broader appeal, given that it's a family comedy, a stoner comedy, a college comedy, a prank comedy, etc. Whereas Jump Street will appeal almost exclusively to younger audience. I think it will make a slight improvement on the original with a $40-45MM bow and a total take in the $140-160MM range. Meanwhile, I think

I think it will make a slight improvement on the original with a $40-45MM bow and a total take in the $140-160MM range. Meanwhile, I think Neighbors will have alright legs given the unexpected MASSIVE opening, resulting in a total haul of at least $150MM, maybe closer to $180MM.

In the end the difference is negligible.

Anything but Blended, please.
Blended has some weird ads, could better be titled Adam Sandler doing stuff for 90 minutes as they seem to avoid saying what the plot is.

22 Jump Street

The first one was ridiculously unexpectedly hilarious and the sequel looks just as good if not better.

I would probably maybe put A Million Ways to Die in the West second considering how big of a fan base McFarlane has even though I think he is way overrated and his humor sucks. Would love to see Neighbors take the crown as well considering how much of a great time it was.

IT shouldn't be, but "Blended"

Adam Sandler is a force to be reckon with. Plus, people who love him and Barrymore will flock to this movie since their last two efforts were successful. It is also a romantic comedy that you can bring your kids too. I say it tops 100 million before the end of June.

Not a chance in hell. It's tracking to open to less than 25M over the first four days. It hasn't been generating significant interest. Grown Ups 2 was tracking at around 40M this far out and made that number on OW.

Go look at Adam Sandler's boxofficemojo.com page: He's been trending down for years now, as has Drew Barrymore. It's probably ignorant to completely count the guy out, since stuff like his Grown Ups franchise still makes some money, but his box office is undeniably trending down when you factor out inflated ticket prices. And guess what Drew Barrymore's last hit was? 50 First Dates, 10 years ago.

But I wouldn't be surprised if A Million Ways to Die in the West ends up being it.
