Iron Man 2 Already Earns $100 Million Worldwide Before Even Opening In America

by Dan Koelsch

There’s still 5 days to go until Marvel’s Iron Man 2 opens here in the United States, but it has already crossed the $100 million mark after its opening weekend in 53 locations around the world. Get the full details after the break.

The estimates are that the Jon Favreau directed film made $100,200,000 in three days. That’s a huge international opening, but how does it compare to the original and other blockbusters? The original Iron Man made $99.1 million in foreign box office, and had its best opening the UK, where it made $12.6 million compared to the $7.3 million opening weekend of the original. The Marvel Entertainment film also did well on IMAX internationally, raking in $2.25 million and beating the previous 2D IMAX record holder, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.





This great opening may actually help the film’s US premiere, as the buzz on the Internet is sure to influence movie-goers here in the States. The movie has been released a week early internationally due to the 2010 World Cup build-up, even though it doesn’t even start until June. That’s how big of a presence soccer has outside the US.


The estimates for this coming weekend Iron Man 2 have it easily making upwards of $100 million domestically, since the original made over $98 million, and received much critical and fan praise. How much do you think the sequel will make next weekend?
