Indiana Jones & the International Box office moolah
Paramount's Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull is piling up the box office gross. The foreign estimate for its first 4 days through Sunday is $143 million -- shattering the record for the Hollywood studio's best overseas opening previously held by the opening of another Steven Spielberg pic, War Of The Worlds ($102M).
The top 3 markets were UK with $21.5 million, France $14.1 million (obviously getting a boost from its debut at the 61st Cannes Film Festival), and Germany $12.6M. So, with North America's $126M take through Sunday, that's a nearly $270M worldwide total so far.
