    Let's not take things so personal around here. At the end of the day both Indy and Batman were very successful.

    It would be a nice round number ;) Either way, it's obviously done extremely well by any measure. That's what matters. No one's going to hold it against it that it didn't beat TDK. I mean, that's just one of those perfect storm situations in terms of box office, a phenomenon, a freak of nature. I really don't care what the box office champ for the summer is, I care that Indy IV did really well. I think TDK is a superior film and I think it deserves every bit of praise it gets. But I don't think it needs to be a competition.

    Batman beat Indy in 1989 too - people prefer dark & cynical heroes these days.
