This is a prediction and pick'em game with winner determined in early February, 2017 by the actual US Domestic Box Office Gross totals as determined by boxofficemojo.com

To play, PM your entry to me by 1/28/16 11:59pm eastern time.

Step 1 - Pick one from each matchup in the 11 lines below (notice you could be picking two movies in the 10th and 11th matchups):

Captain America: Civil War vs. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
Doctor Strange vs. Deadpool
Independence Day: Resurgence vs. X-Men: Apocalypse
Zootopia vs. The Secret Life of Pets
Star Trek Beyond vs. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Suicide Squad vs. Bourne 5
Assassin's Creed vs. Warcraft
Ghostbusters vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Kung Fu Panda 3 vs. Alice Through the Looking Glass
The Jungle Book vs. the combined total of Zoolander 2 and The Legend of Tarzan (replaced Jumanji with Zoolander 2 as it was postponed to 2017 before the game started).
Finding Dory vs. the combined total of Moana and Pete's Dragon

Step 2 - Pick 5 more 2016 releases (release date 1/29/16 to 12/30/16) that are NOT named in Steps 1 or 3

Step 3 - Tiebreaker: Domestic Box Office Gross of Star Wars: Rogue One

We'll use boxofficemojo.com's Domestic Box Office Total for each movie at the end of January 2017, so we count the box office receipts in January 2017 until boxofficemojo.com puts up the receipts for the week that includes January 26, 2017 in it.

Winners:
Overall Winner - Person with highest total box office of their 16 movies - knarf
Pick'Em Champ - Person with most number of top choices for Step 1 - knarf (with tiebreaker) & figjam
Scout - Person with highest total box office of their 5 Step 2 movies - knarf
Marksman - Person whose Step 3 is closest to the actual gross - knarf

Ties in the first 3 categories will be broken by the tiebreaker (Step 3)

Remember, your Step 2 entries can't use any movie listed above. I'll post mine after the deadline, but before I open any PM's.

We all picked Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Finding Dory, so those matchups won't have any impact.

Most of us are guessing Star Wars in the $370,000,000 - $478,656,874 range, but Dawson goes for lower at $213,565,256 and figjam goes for higher at $885,000,000.

Just curious how the 5 additional work. How does one earn a point there?

Nevermind. Just looked at last year's winner and I see that it's all based on domestic gross totals.

Do you only earn the gross from the first 11 films if you pick the winner then?

The person with the highest box office for those 5 alone earns the win for Scout, and those films are added to the box office of your 11 picks in the matchups to determine the overall winner.
