The Doctor is In

Unsurprisingly, Dr Jones took the weekend with a 4 day start of $126 mil. Though the take was big it wasnt Star Wars big, but who really believed Indy could top Jar Jar? The real surprise is how the modest $55 million opening for Narnia has morphed into a real disaster. In its second weekend, Narnia barely edged out 3rd place Iron Man which continues to perform like a well oiled machine. Narnia is now aiming for a sub $150 million total. Dawn Treader may be in trouble.

Back to Iron Man, he surpassed $250 million and has a real chance at $300 and an outside shot at the summer crown. Hopefully some of the Iron love spills over to the Jolly Green Hulk.

Summer Standings

#1 Iron Man - $252,000,000
#2 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - $126,000,000
#3 The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - $91,000,000
#4 Speed Racer - $36,213,000
