A brief update this week. Team Salem had the biggest week, up $81 million to $371 million through Sunday for the slate. A full week of Brave was the main driver for the gain. The first Monday-Thursday period combined with the second weekend of Brave totaled $65 million, exactly matching the opening weekend number — a very good sign.
Team Weil was up $68 million this week to $148 million to date. Ted came to the rescue and got the slate going.
With a $54 million increase this week (the smallest gain of the three), Team Metcalf remains the early leader by far, with $1.23 billion to date. Which Team — Salem or Weil — have the horses left to ride to catch Metcalf?
