This movie is now considered to be successful in paramount's eyes. Guess we are going to get an Indy 5 next.
Transposed your numbers a bit. It's actually 482.8 million...Essentially half a billion dollars. Amazing.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see them go to the well at least one more time. Crystal Skull was successful enough in my eyes to make me want another one. I still think they need to do an Atlantis plot, be it a reworking of Fate of Atlantis, or something completely different.
And I'll stand up for Temple of Doom. Yes, IMO, it's the weakest of the series (or tied with Crystal Skull), but it has its charms. And believe it or not, I include Willie among them. She's meant to be 100% comic relief, and I think she works perfectly on that level. It's a different dynamic than Raiders, where Marion is posited as a relative equal to Indy. I admire that Spielberg and co. have the courage to go a less formulaic route than, say, the Bond films, in which the women fill the exact same role pretty much every time out. And I'd still take Willie over Ilsa, who had all the personality of a piece of paperboard.
I watched the trilogy on the Sci Fi Channel in high def with my wife a couple weeks ago. She had only seen snippets of each (though she had fond memories of the dinner scene from her youth, specifically the sound of the monkey heads opening). She enjoyed ToD largely because she was able to laugh at Willie (I believe the term she used was "silly bitch"). She also recognized that she probably would have freaked out with all those bugs.
