Iron Man was expected to pull in anywhere from $60-75 million this weekend, according to experts.
Well, the first blockbuster to be released this summer turned out to be just that! Iron Man blasted to the top spot with an estimated $101 MILLION opening, blowing all estimates out of the sky by as much as $40 mil! AND, it’s got an IMDb rating of 8.4 with over 7,600 votes! Go Robert & Co.!
Hope it can sustain its momentum for a while longer. With Speed Racer set to open next week, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian the week after that, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull the week after that, and Sex and the City: The Movie opening the week after THAT, their window of money making opportunity is already closing! BLOCKBUSTER HEAVEN…!
Did anyone see Iron Man…??? What did you think?
