Team Weil, with Ice Age 4, had the biggest gain this week, up $97 million to $325 million to date.  The coming week will be huge for this slate as Dark Knight Rises opens Friday.

Team Salem had a decent week with an $88 million gain (thanks to continued strong business from Amazing Spider-Man).  The slate now totals $644 million to date.

Up only $15 million this week, Team Metcalf continues to sit on an enormous lead, now $1.27 billion.
