It was a great week for new movies! Just Mercy gathered a sky high 9.0/10 over its opening weekend. For comparison, this would have ranked as the 2nd best movie for all of 2019 — behind only Avengers: Endgame at 9.2. (Note: Just Mercy has only 48 votes so far, which is low. Let’s see how the score changes in the coming weeks as more ratings are submitted.)
1917 also pulled down an excellent score of 8.7. That’s only a +0.5 over its expectation rating. However, an expectation of 8.2 is remarkably high for any movie. In fact, that would be higher than any movie in 2019 — again, with the exception of Avengers: Endgame — which had a 9.0 expectation score.
Also, there’s this. There’s no doubt 1917 will be among the top 10 movies of 2020.
The other new movies this week didn’t fare so well, but I doubt anyone is surprised. Like a Boss has a respectable 7.0, which is up +0.4 over expectations. Likewise, Underwater did slightly better than expectations. I’d call that a win.
