Sex Sells at the Box Office

Sex and the City was a surprise (at least to me) hot this weekend earning $56 million, while Indy cooled off a little to a still large $46 passing the coveted $200 million mark. Meanwhile Iron Man out earned Narnia which limped past $100 million this week. Iron Man continues to threaten a $300+ million take. Next week brings Kung Fu Panda, Dreamworks latest Shrek style farce. We will have to see if it does more of a Shrek style performance or gets stung like Bee Movie.

#1 Iron Man - $276,625,000
#2 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - $216,881,000
#3 The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - $115,674,000
#4 What Happens in Vegas - 66,074,000
Sex and the City - $55,740,000
#6 Speed Racer - $40,558,000

I can't believe anyone actually went to see that Vegas movie. Besides looking completely moronic, Cameron Diaz's face look like a burlap sack. Not to mention the fact that she looks like she could be Ashton Kutcher's mom in the movie.

yeah, Camerons never quite matched her look in The Mask. burlap is a new low.
