Indy wins the "Weekend"
The allure of seeing Indiana Jones return to the big screen made Paramount very happy this weekend (which was measured starting on Thursday).
Prince Caspian sank 58% in its second weekend and took second place.
Iron Man has been in the box office for 24 days and and made over $252 million. So the question everyone is asking is, "Will Indiana Jones make or break this current reining Summer record?"
Seriously, kids, it's millions of dollars going to huge corporations who will then inflate their already over-inflated salaries and churn out un-interesting, contrived garbage the rest of the year.
Its just fun to see which film is the most popular one.
