Rob and three other people called it on "Incredibles 2" earning more than $100M. I suppose no one expected that it would earn $182.7 this weekend. Everyone will claim they did, but I know. I see you. You aren't all you're cracked up to be.

How a studio can manage to, in the span of two movies, both rejuventate and completely destroy a franchise, is beyond me. That's coming from an anonymous voice on the internet who hasn't seen "Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom", but loves spouting generalizations and ignorant vitrole. From a purely personal stance, I think part of the problem is that they seem to be leaning hard on injecting humor instead of letting it happen more organically. The first "Jurassic World" was guilty of this too, but they got away with it because nostalgia managed to over-shadow it. "Fallen Kingdom" looks like it was intended to be a darker movie, but the studio can't sell a scarey "Jurassic Park". Instead we get jump scares and ridiculous plot devices. That was a bit of a rant, but I still think the movie can pull $130M this weekend.
