Exactly. They don't handcuff you to the seat and lock the door.

The clues fit American Made perfectly but the screening doesn't make sense.

So I'm guessing it's Dunkirk as it sits somewhere between the two.

Answers at a stretch 1) Odds of air crash 2) Nautical distance 4) Harry bag Styles 3) Don't know, a different actor? Styles fits again with Neo being The One/Direction
According to this post, you got exactly the film you thought it might be.

To invite alternate views for a general discussion? I'm still leaning towards scammy.

Kazan's middle name is Swicord, you had to look in the census for the surname Swicord but that wasn't enough, you had to also go back a census. They wanted a number that would also specifically fit something else?

From 39 to 86 is a moving target. The Metascore for The Big Sick is now 87. The shortest distance to Dunkirk is 39 nautical miles, the longest is 87 nautical miles. Coincidence or they wanted another clue that would fit a particular movie.

If I'm right and the idea was to structure clues that would point to Dunkirk just as much as The Big Sick then I don't understand their reasoning. Why generate interest by pretending it might be a more popular movie when it's guaranteed so lead to some disappointment. It shows a lack of confidence/respect for the smaller movies they do show (it's not the first time it's happened) and it would be so much easier to give obscure clues that point to the right movie and let the audience mislead themselves. Then there would be nothing to fault.

Thought I'd give this another bump up, looking like an exciting unpredictable screening tomorrow!
