Box Office Contest Update: Nothing New to Report Edition

Stu’s victory lap continues, as “Inglourious Basterds” scalped another $20 million to bring its 10-day cume to just under $74 million, according to estimates from Box Office Mojo.

Next week marks the official end date of the contest, with results through the Monday of Labor Day weekend.

In addition to issuing the final tallies next Monday, we’ll also be taking a “coulda,” “shoulda,” “woulda” look at our game, in which we revisit the draft with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight and see how things would have worked out had we correctly drafted the 32 highest-grossing films of the summer in the proper order.

In the meantime, here are the totals through August 30:

Stu (eight films): $1.28 billion
John (eight films): $829 million
Robert (eight films): $758 million
Dave (eight films): $682 million
