Boxofficemojo.com reports Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull grossed $25 million on Thursday, which is the fourth biggest Thursday opening of all time (after Revenge of the Sith, The Matrix Reloaded and Attack of the Clones).
This puts the movie on track for a Memorial Day weekend gross of somewhere around $125-$130 million. Once you add in overseas ticket sales, Spielberg can breathe easy that at least its $185 million budget will be recouped. Although I don't know who thought it wouldn't.
I'm taking the holiday weekend off and plan to see a grand total of zero movies over the next four days. Let me know what you think of Crystal Skull if you see it.
