Crystal Skull Unbreakable Overseas
It has fallen short of the record worldwide box office set last year by Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, but Paramount's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has now taken in $266 million overseas, the studio said Monday. The figure is about $30 million short of that set by Pirates during the same period a year ago. Over the past weekend, the latest Indiana Jones sequel took in $71.5 million in 60 countries. Continuing to surprise box office analysts which predicted light business for it overseas, Sex and the City raked in an impressive $39.2 million during its opening in 13 countries ($18.3 million coming from the U.K.).
