After what may have been the closest race in the Fantasy Film League so far, we can now officially crown a winner! Jordan has broken Scott’s back to back winning streak and is now the 2016 Regular Season Champion!
Jordan dominated both the Box Office and Profit Margin categories with Disney’s Finding Dory and Jungle Book putting up huge numbers in both categories. Scott narrowly beat Jordan in the IMDb Score and RadScore categories, only taking the RadScore category by only a tenth of a point. The race for the win came down to Rotten Tomatoes score. With Jason Bourne and Suicide Squad locking in with rather “rotten” scores, the window of opportunity opened up for Jordan. Pete’s Dragon and Southside with You both came in with great scores and Jordan won the category and the season by 19 points from Rotten Tomatoes! Congratulations, Jordan!
The end of the Regular Season also means the start of the Playoffs Season. To find out the 2016 Playoffs draft results in detail, download the latest episode of Rad Notions Radio on iTunes or check out the Team Rosters featured on this here website.
Only 2 days after podcasting, the first film from the Playoffs Season was released. Scott’s film, The Light Between Oceans, opened in 1500 theaters on Friday the 2nd. Over the holiday weekend, Light Between Oceans came in 6th in the box office with slightly over $6 million. While that may be a good haul for a small film, its still got a way to go before it recoups its $20 million budget. The numbers may not be as stellar as Scott had hoped, it was his 10th and last draft.
That should get us up caught up to speed. Stay tuned for more updates here and be sure to check out the next episode of Rad Notions Radio for the first review of the Playoffs Season!
