Even the box office estimates for the opening weekend of Warner Bros.' Sex and the City turned out to be too conservative as the film earned a million and a half dollars more on Sunday than studio executives had reckoned. The film took in a total of $56.9 million for the weekend, substantially ahead of Paramount's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which brought in $44.8 million in its second week, pushing its gross past the $200-million mark to $215.6 million. The No. 3 film, Universal's horror flick The Strangers, also performed better than expected with $21 million -- more than what the film cost to produce. In fourth place, Iron Man appeared to have legs of steel, as it brought in another $13.5 million after five weeks. Rounding out the top five, Disney's The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian added $12.7 million to its gross in its third week.

The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Media by Numbers (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date):
