Indy Opens, But How Will It Close?

If it's treasure Indiana Jones wants, he'll have to wait for the weekend to collect the lion's share of it.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opened Thursday with an estimated $25 million, per Exhibitor Relations Co.

The number puts the movie, the fourth in the adventure franchise, at fourth on the list for biggest Thursday debuts, per the stats at Box Office Mojo.

But it puts it at no better than 28th for all-time opening days (regardless of the day of the week), and falls short of expectations that, at their most expectant, pegged a $50 million start.

By comparison, Iron Man last month collected $35.2 million on its opening day (a Friday), good for 13th all-time.

Still, box office experts were not ready to count out, or against, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg's savvy archaeologist.

"I'll think we'll know more from Friday," Exhibitor Relations Jeff Bock said today. "This'll play more like a family film."

Family films tend to do their biggest business on the weekend.

The PG-13-rated Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is viewed as the summer family film to beat, especially with Speed Racer crashing and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian losing at its own expectations game.

"It should do better on the weekend," Box Office Mojo's Brandon Gray said today.

The one potential booby trap awaiting Dr. Jones: Young moviegoers.

Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, starring the 65-year-old Harrison Ford, is the first Indiana Jones movie in a generation, since 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Because it also debuted after a lengthy gap between new movies, Lucas' own Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace might be the best guidepost for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. That franchise restarter opened with $28.5 million en route to a $431.1 million domestic gross, per Box Office Mojo.

The booby trap in that argument: The Phantom Menace opened nearly 10 years ago, when the average ticket was nearly $2 cheaper than it is today. Its $28.5 million represented a lot more tickets sold than the new Indiana Jones' $25 million.

Still, Bock, who was calling for a five-day, Memorial Day weekend gross of as much as $175 million for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was not ready to call off the projection.

Gray essentially agreed. "Chances are now it'll end up below expectations," he said, "but the verdict is still out."

Not that Indiana Jones has ever had to deal with tough odds before…

Cameron Diaz: 'Sex Is the Best!'

Nearly 18 months after her break-up with Justin Timberlake after they were together four years, Cameron Diaz is loving her view of the dating scene.

"Men are the best!" the What Happens in Vegas star, 35, tells InStyle for its June issue. "Sex is the best!"

And when it comes to seducing her men, Diaz says she prefers an outfit that accentuates her natural resources: a pair of heels and nothing else.

"You don't walk around naked?" she asks innocently.

Despite the April death of her father Emilio (the interview apparently took place before the sad event), Diaz – who once professed to thinking she'd be married and a mom by the time she was 22 – terms this a "good year," adding, "Yeah, I'm happy."

As for the prospective Mr. Right, "You don't want the men who want the 25-year-olds," she says with a laugh. "People think if you're single, you are incomplete. No. The thing is, I don't want to be in a relationship that makes me incomplete."

The new Indiana Jones movie: our verdict

Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull doesn’t screen to critics in London until Tuesday, but heat’s Film Editor Charles Gant caught its world premiere on Sunday in Cannes. Here’s what he made of it…

We’ve been on a bit of a rollercoaster ride with this one. When we first heard they were moving ahead with a fourth Indiana Jones movie, after a 19-year gap, our initial reaction was: bad idea. Harrison Ford is too old. Leave it alone. Then we got mildly excited about the casting of Shia LaBeouf as Indie’s young sidekick, and Cate Blanchett as a Russian villain. As the release date approached, we found ourselves getting sucked into the “blockbuster of the summer” hype. But was our first instinct right all along?

Nevada, 1957. KGB agents led by the icy Irina Spalko (Blanchett) attack a secret US military facility. They’ve already kidnapped Indiana Jones (Ford) and colleague Max (Ray Winstone), who they need to help them find what they’re looking for. Indy escapes their clutches, twice: first using some rocket-propelled piece of military kit; then inside a lead-lined fridge that somehow survives a nuclear explosion. Yes, it’s that kind of film, and it’s initially rather fun. Then young rebel Mutt (LaBeouf) shows up, and asks for Indy’s help on a rescue mission to Peru where his mum (Karen Allen) and archaeologist Professor Oxley (John Hurt) have gone missing. Pretty soon they’re whipcracking their way through jungle, sandpit and waterfall, trying to shake off Spalko’s crew and solve the mystery of a magnetic, transparent crystal skull and a famed lost city. And it’s while all this is occurring that you realise how thoroughly the National Treasure movies – and, to a lesser extent the Mummy ones – have looted the Indiana Jones franchise for ideas. Which means, despite the 19-year wait, this fourth edition doesn’t feel that fresh. A huge increase in the level of CGI marks out Crystal Skull from earlier Indiana Jones movies, but that only serves to make it seem more like a generic Hollywood blockbuster. As for the resolution to the mystery of the skull, it’s a) entirely predictable, and b) a step into genre territory you may not find appropriate. We don’t really care – as some might – whether Crystal Skull is true to the heart and soul of the earlier films. We just wished it was – somehow, anyhow – a bit more special. Certificate 12A; 123 minutes.

I'm Not Too Old For Indiana Jones!

Indiana Jones Harrison Ford has hit out at critics who claim he's too old to lay the swashbuckling archaeologist.

The 65-year-old, who is playing the adventurer for a fourth time in ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’, is confident the film will be a hit - even with a senior citizen in the lead role.

The actor even insisted the film embraced the fact he and his character have aged 19 years since the last installment - 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

He says, "That's one of the things I was most keen about. Just acknowledge the years, without reservation. What's the big deal? The guys 18, 20 years older. So what?

"Yeah, I've heard it, ‘Aaaaw, he's older.' Well s**t yes. And by the way? So are you... Take a look in the f***ing mirror!"

The Hottest Couple in Cannes

Jessica Simpson’s dad wants Tony Romo at Ashlee and Pete’s wedding

Jessica Simpson’s dad is urging her rumored-ex, Tony Romo, to “support the family” at Ashlee’s wedding to Pete Wentz this weekend.

“Joe has called Tony and asked him to come to show support for the wedding,” a source says.

It isn’t known if the Dallas Cowboys quarterback has agreed to show at the wedding, but he’s scheduled to fly into L.A. over the weekend.

Romo didn’t attend a bachelor party Joe threw for Fall Out Boy rocker Pete and a few of his pals on Thursday night, but according to reports, a steady supply of beer and wine was brought to their table. After the celebration, Joe picked the $1,000 bill.

It has been claimed that one of the reasons behind Tony and Jessica’s split was due to Joe’s “overbearing” nature, and because he’s “not only telling Jessica every move to make, but now has begun to offer unsolicited advice to Tony on his career, endorsement opportunities and things that have nothing to do with him dating Jessica.”

Meanwhile, Jessica and mom Tina threw a bachelorette party for Ashlee that E! reports was a “mellow affair.” About a dozen of Ashlee’s closest family members and friends attended the backyard event, decorated with balloons.

“Proper invites have not been sent out but instead guests have been given a save the date notice,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.

The rehearsal dinner – described by the source as “an intimate affair” for “family and close friends only” – will take place on Friday.

Mariah Obtained Marriage License in Caribbean

Mariah Careyand Nick Cannon's whirlwind romance took an official turn when the singer obtained a marriage license on the Caribbean island of Eleuthera, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

According to marriage requirements for the Bahamas, a couple must be in the country for at least 48 hours, be over the age of 16 and have obtained a valid marriage license within 90 days, explains Monique Gomez, a Bahamian attorney in Nassau who specializes in family law.

The source says that Carey did obtain a license in Eleuthera within that time period. And clarifies Gomez, "The minister would make sure [the license] goes into the registry. It's still a valid marriage even if it's not filed. Anywhere in the world."

The New York Post report that the nuptials took place at Carey's private estate off Eleuthera. Carey owns an estate on Windermere Island, which is an exclusive Bahamian island where the British royals vacation.

Though there has been no official confirmation of the wedding,

After dating less than two months, Carey, 39, and Cannon, 27, got hitched in an impromptu island ceremony. This wasn't the first whirlwind courtship for Cannon, who proposed to Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks last year after just four months of dating. (The pair split last October.)

A source close to Ebanks – who received a 12-carat diamond ring from Jacob & Co jewelers, similar to the 17 carat Jocob bauble Carey is sporting – says the model "really is not affected by it. She is past that point in her life." Ebanks's rep says Ebanks "has no comment other than she wishes them well."
