Iron Man 2 Scores Big Box Office Opening
It certainly was among one of the most-anticipated films this year, and it looks like “Iron Man 2” is living up to its expectations.
The film took in $52.4 million domestically on its opening day Friday (May 8) which is nearly a 50 percent increase over the $35.2 million first day of the original "Iron Man" two years ago.
According to Gossip Cop, “If the current projections hold, “Iron Man 2” would have the fifth-biggest opening weekend in history, behind: “The Dark Knight,” Spider-Man 3,” “New Moon” and “Pirates of the Caribbean 3.”
"Iron Man 2" starring Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow has taken in nearly $150 million overseas since it debuted internationally last week. Worldwide, the movie has climbed to a $200 million total so far.
