Episode artwork for The 2022 Box Office Draft

It’s that time of year again. Every year the hosts of Voxpopcast play a fantasy box office game! Even though it’s only the second week of the year, we are going to review every movie expected to come out in 2022. Then each host will draft 15 movies and compete to see who can have the highest combination of box office returns in the American domestic box office (as reported by BoxOfficeMojo) and Rotten Tomatoes score. The game has been very tricky these last couple of years because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but we’re still at it. So join Mav, Wayne, Katya, Hannah, and Monica, as well as box office fantasy commissioner Stephanie Siler to discuss the results of last year’s game and fantasy box office draft choices for the new year. Follow along and let us know if you agree with our draft picks and let us know yours in the comments below.
