One slate had a significant gain this week: Team Weil was up $180 million over the last seven days to $734 million, vaulting into second place.  The Dark Knight Rises accounted for most of that increase, although Ice Age 4 also remains a significant contributor.

Team Salem had a small $22 million increase this week, hitting $709 million to date but falling to third place.

Team Metcalf, with a slate that opened in May and early June, grossed only $6 million this week, but still in very solid first place with almost $1.3 billion.
