Summer Movie Box Office 2008-- The Mid Point

The hits, the misses of summer movies 2008, so far... Easily on the misses side would be Speed Racer (an abysmal $42.9 million-to-date, domestic), The Love Guru ($26.1 million to-date domestic), and Narnia: Prince Caspian (a not-even Horton Hears A Who! total to-date of $137.8 million domestic). Thankfully, Prince Caspian's international numbers ($275.6 million to-date) assure the continuation of the series. The hits: Iron Man, Indy, Sex and the City, and relatively: The Incredible Hulk and Zohan. Overachievers also certainly include What Happens in Vegas.

1. Iron Man ($309.5)
2. Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ($300.8)
3. Kung Fu Panda ($181.1)
4. Sex and the City ($140.8)
5. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian ($137.8)
