Box Office Contest Update: Basterds Edition

With this week’s release of “Inglourious Basterds” and “Shorts,” all four of the competitors in this summer’s box office contest have all eight of their movies in play.

Quentin Tarantino’s return to form grossed $37 million this weekend: The basterds were quite glorious and just added icing to the cake of Stu’s runaway victory.

“Shorts” came up … yes … short for John, but he’ll finish second for the summer.

Totals through August 23:

Stu (eight films): $1.24 billion
John (eight films): $800.8 million
Robert (eight films): $743.3 million
Dave (eight films): $677.8 million
