BOX OFFICE: How Much Did Iron Man 3 Make/Gross In Its Opening Weekend? It Breaks Records.

Sup Travellers?! I recently wrote about Iron Man 3's opening day gross of $68.3 million domestically. It didn't break any records on Friday but as the weekend progressed the film jumped to a record breaking high that surprised everyone... Well it didn't really surprise anyone, but it was surprising. Iron Man 3 is now the second highest grossing film during an opening weekend ever. Yeah, Harry Potter got kicked out of that position.

Disney/Marvel’s 3D Iron Man 3 opened in North America with astonishing figures. It played in 4,253 theaters with $68.3 million on Friday and a very good hold for $62.2 million on Saturday. With an estimated $44.7 million on Sunday. Its $175.3 million domestic weekend puts it on a path to the #2 biggest Friday-Saturday-Sunday opening ever which was previously occupied by Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 with $169.2 million. But Iron Man 3 couldn't beat Marvel’s #1 The Avengers and its $207.4 million opening weekend. The Avengers movie still reigns supreme.


The international cume of Iron Man 3 to date is $504.8 million through Sunday for an updated global box office of $680.1 million. Iron Man 3 has now passed the franchise total worldwide for Iron Man ($585 million) and Iron Man 2 ($624 million). Internationally, the 12-day run of Iron Man 3 has passed the total international box office of Captain America ($192 million), Iron Man ($267 million), Thor ($268 million) and Iron Man 2 ($312 million). Overseas it played in 54 territories by the end of the weekend after beginning its international rollout on April 24, debuting #1 in every territory and setting the biggest opening weekend of all time in Latin America and Asia Pacific and the biggest opening of 2013 in Europe. This weekend’s box office take from Iron Man 3 means that Disney has now crossed the $1B box office threshold internationally and represents the fastest time that Disney has ever achieved this.

All this to say... Iron Man 3 is the shiz and if you haven't seen it yet get your dairy weasel to the nearest cinema right now. But if you don't, it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
