In case you were wondering whether or not people would be interested in seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, you shouldn't. They are. To the tune of over $300 million for the Memorial Day weekend, making over $150 million here in the States, and another $150 worldwide.
The money is almost enough to break Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End's $153 million opening weekend record from last Memorial Day, but shattered the worldwide opening record that War of the Worlds set at $202 million when it opened in 2005. That, in case you're wondering, is a whole heck of a lot of money.
