Detective Pikachu will not gross more than 1B worldwide. Who will make an avatar bet about that?

Math as in clearly lay out a realistic path given the movie's numbers so far that would lead it to $1B.
it stays in theaters a long time? this week sees a huge uptick? china is a bit of a wild card no idea how long it'll stay in theaters there. it did really well in japan. Aladin bombs? I just got a chance to see Endgame on saturday and I'm hoping to see Detective Pikachu this week at some point so that's a guaranteed $10 right there, just need like 80 million more people to do what i'm going to do which is like what less than 2% of the population.

Like i know I'll most likely need to equip the avatar, i knew this back when i made the bet, idk why ppl are jumping down my throat when i'm just following the rules made in the OP.

Imagine making all this fuss about not taking a cool digimon avatar, you could have been getting one of the deliberately distrubing digimon.






(That last one is real by the way, Betsumon is creeeeeepy.)

You still got a better deal than the people who got snapped and got nothing to show, while the guys who weren't banned for weeks actually get a cool title. I'm still bitter about that.
They will get around to it eventually.
At least all the avenger posters get to keep their tags, because the mods forgot.

The ability for it to hit 1 billion is 100% dead. The avatar bet is thus May 12 - June 12 given it failed to even come close to what it needed to open at worldwide to do a billion.
Srry I will only do it when its out of theater. Also what is the choosen avatar ?

Avatar bets are so simple and meaningless. This is my first one and I thought there'd be some humility or whatever involved. This shit is simple as fuck. Not even gonna bother with avatar bets in the future. Perm bets or nothing for now on.

Currently it's this:



It may get worse for those that wait longer and are stubborn though. I dunno. It's that, or you are going to stand out even more after June 12th when those that have already accepted we lost have done our penance with these Badass Greymon avatars.

I just noticed the un-cropped out white by the teeth. That's a nice extra touch.

Well, I changed my avatar 'cause SweetNicole said it

BUT

if the movie actually reach 1 Billion $ at the end of BO run, everyone that bet against must take a shitty digimon avatar, no exceptions.


And we will never stop remembering y'all about it.

It's fine actually
Even the people who got snapped and couldn't stay away got something for it.

What am I chopped liver?

I have to have this avatar for 3 months and you don't see me complaining!

Why did people change their avatar so soon? I guess some kind of miracle couls still happen? it hasn't even been out a week...

I still believe it has a small chance depending on how week two goes. I mainly did it for the fun of it and I need to find a new avatar because I have no means of updating my old one.

Edit: and sore winners. I don’t want to get ban saying something dumb.

The movie made $160M in its opening weekend, and it opened in every major market in its first weekend.

It's not going to make over 5x its OW gross during the rest of its run, unless it makes a phenomenal, historic run.
