Iron Man 3 Becomes Second Highest Debut of All Time


Iron Man 3 Becomes Second Highest Debut of All Time

The Marvel movies seem to be the best thing that ever happened to the comic book giant, as not only did 2012’s The Avengers snag the record for highest debut of all time ($207.4 million), the honor of being the 2nd highest debut of all time was also taken by another Marvel film, the recently released Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 proved its box office pull last weekend by managing to open to a whopping $175.3 million in North America, while also hitting impressive numbers in foreign territories (managing a $175.9 million box office pull, bringing its total cume to $680.1 million). The film even managed to get big numbers in China, which has always been a tough nut to crack for Hollywood films, to the tune of $63.5 million, making it the top opening film of all time in the country.

Industry observers are seeing a pattern, and are predicting that the strong performance of Iron Man 3 will continue on to the other two upcoming titles in Marvel’s phase 2, such as Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opens on November 8, 2013 and April 14, 2014, respectively.
