Memorial Day weekend is finally here.  As Hangover Part II battles Kung Fu Panda 2 across North America and parts of the world, the real question is who will be ahead in the first annual ShowBuzzDaily Summer Movie Draft?  In the chart below, the standings to date have been updated through yesterday (including the first day gross for Hangover and Panda).  Actually, there won’t be much suspense this weekend as Mr. Salem deftly selected Hangover while I (the other Mitch) was not paying attention.  At least that’s the excuse I am sticking with for now.

The entire slate for each “team” is listed along with release dates so you can easily see which blockbusters or clunkers are coming down the line.

Check back on Tuesday for the next update (the normal Monday update is delayed because of the holiday).
