Aquaman vs Mary Poppins Returns vs Bumblebee vs Second Act vs Welcome to Marwen

Here we go... A slew of new movies hit theaters this pre-Christmas Holiday season.

Hit Factor: Seems like they've been hyping this movie up for a long time.
Flop Factor: The DCU success factor has been a bit spotty.

Mary Poppins Returns
Hit Factor: Perfect family film for the Holidays.
Flop Factor: Disney box office wasn't bulletproof this year (see A Wrinkle in Time or The Nutcracker and the Four Realms).

Hit Factor: Not only the best reviewed of the Transformers universe, but one of the best of the year.
Flop Factor: A bit of a change in targeted audience.

Second Act
Hit Factor: Jennifer Lopez in a Jennifer Lopez comedy.
Flop Factor: box office competition.

Welcome to Marwen
Hit Factor: From the director of Back to the Future, Castaway, Forrest Gump
Flop Factor: This movie needs strong word of mouth to last in this Holiday line up.

My Predictions:

Mary Poppins Returns
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Second Act
Weekend Gross (millions)
