This is an interesting list. A bit surprised how Bad Boys for Life was in the number 1 spot. That’s pretty cool. Sonic:The Hedgehog is riding a strong wave at the number 2 spot. I figured that Star Wars Ep. IX would at the top, but it still makes the top 3.
I was surprised to see Frozen 2 all the way towards the bottom of the list at #19. Actually forgot that Fantasy Island released, been wanting to see it, just made the list at #20.
Some of the Oscar nominees still coming through the middle of the pack, with 1917 at #8 and Little Women at #9.
Little disappointed to see that Harley Quinn’s Birds of Prey is not ranked higher. Personally, this was a good reminder for me to see the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat Legends.
This is a really good informative list that DEG is coming up with on a weekly basis to inform us what the public is watching at home, with movie theaters closed.
