Indiana Jones and the $150 million weekend

As expected, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull spelunked its way to an estimated $151 million over the holiday weekend. It's the second biggest Memorial Day opening ever, second only to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. 

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian followed with $28.6 million, and coming in third was the resilient Iron Man, which earned another $25.7 for a total domestic gross of $257.8 million.

Universal Pictures executives are probably hoping Robert Downey Jr.'s cameo as Tony Stark in next month's The Incredible Hulk will help that movie, which is arriving with less-than-great buzz.

Not bad...I was expecting it to pull a Superman Returns and go lower than everyone was expecting. I always assumed Dark Knight would take the summer crown, but it's a heck of a lot darker than Indy and Iron Man, so we'll see.
