The mixed reviews for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull could not dampen the sequel's success. Taking advantage of the extended Memorial Day weekend, the fourth Indy installment earned enough to make it the second biggest opening for the holiday frame.

Box Office: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came out the gates with a worldwide take of $311.1 million. With an audience that represented a combination of both new and old fans of the franchise, the sequel grossed an estimated $126 million domestically over the four-day holiday.

Even with its strong opening, Indy couldn't take down the Memorial Day record held by Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, which made $139.8 million over the three-day frame. The film did, however, take down the record for best worldwide debut, which was originally held by another Paramount title, War of the Worlds.

With the arrival of Indy, other films didn't fare as well. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian declined a steep 58% on its second weekend to take in an estimated $23 million, bringing the film's total cume to $96.7 million.



Paramount actually has two reasons to be excited. Though Iron Man has now faced three other wide releases, the film continues to earn at the box office. Now in its fourth frame, the film declined only 37% to earn yet another $20.1 million.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is out in theaters now.
