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.).
