Iron Man 2 stands supreme all around

MUMBAI: Marvel Studios‘ Iron Man 2 outpaced its predecessor opening atop domestic rankings with an estimated $133.6 million in weekend box-office. The first Iron Man that also starred Robert Downey Jr. debuted in May 2008 with $98.6 million.

Distributed by Paramount, the film marked the fifth biggest bow ever and Paramount‘s best to date. People were expecting that the broad pre-release buzz of the film could translate into a record-breaking opening, but the $158.4 million opening performance of The Dark Knight in July 2008 seems to be unscathed.

Iron Man 2 ruled the foreign theatrical circuit over the weekend for the second week taking the No. 1 spot with $57.2 million from 10,774 locations in 61 markets. The film accumulated an overseas box-office total of $194 million.

Combined with the film‘s $133.6 million opening domestic tally, Iron Man 2 has generated a worldwide gross of $327.6 million to date.

In China, Iron Man 2 drew $7.3 million from about 3,000 situations. In Germany and Austria, the film drew a combined opening tally of $3.88 million putting it to a No. 1 position in each market. The film also finished No. 1 in Korea ($4.7 million from 834 locations), Australia, Turkey, Russia, Brazil, Italy and Mexico.

In France, the film lapped up $4 million from 655 locations, in the UK. It took the top spot with $4.9 million drawn from 426 spots.
