Cattrall Delighted To Beat Indiana Jones
SEX AND THE CITY star KIM CATTRALL is delighted her film has over taken the new INDIANA JONES movie at the global box office - calling the news "classic".
Sex and the City: The Movie edged out Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to claim the number one spot outside the U.S. this week (beg09Jun08).
The big-screen adaptation of the hit U.S. TV series earned an estimated $38.2 million (GBP19.1 million) during its second weekend on release, ending Indiana Jones' two week reign at the top of the international charts.
And Cattrall, who plays Samantha Jones in the hit film, was stunned by the news - because she never thought her movie could overtake Harrison Ford's comeback as the action archeologist.
She says, "I never thought it would be this huge, to beat Indiana Jones, I mean - that's Hollywood royalty.
"It's classic, that was truly a weekend to remember. I've never gotten so many phone calls from executives on a Sunday morning. It was really exciting."
