>Through Sunday, Team Metcalf’s lead in the ShowBuzzDaily Summer Movie Draft is now $101 million.  That lead will expand somewhat over the weekday period because of the number of Metcalf’s films in more recent release, but Team Salem has the final advantage of having three more movies to open, most notably Rise of the Planet of the Apes. 

Coming in the late Fall, we plan to follow this game up with the Holiday Movie Draft, with the full intention of involving ShowBuzz readers in the contest.  Details to come later.
