Team Salem’s slate in the second annual ShowbuzzDaily Summer Movie Draft now stands at $556 million, with a lot of upside left in Amazing Spider-Man, significant business left for Brave, and three movies left to open.

Team Weil is now at $228 million, with two very big movies opening the next two weeks (Ice Age: Continental Drift this Friday and Dark Knight Rise next Friday).

Team Metcalf grew marginally this past week to $1.25 billion, with little growth to come from his movies now playing and, let’s face it, not much expected from his lone remaining film, Total Recall.
