Iron Man Three: The Inevitability

Iron_Man_3_screenshot_620x380Boom! Iron Man Three made a very big splash in North America, pulling in $175.3 million domestically for the second-biggest opening since The Avengers. (It pulled in another $175.9 million in its second weekend of international release, which ain’t no small potatoes.)

Everything else was left in the dust. Second-placer Pain & Gain made $7.6 million; 42 made $6.2 million. None dare challenge the great Tony Stark and his flying metal pals. (Really, it’d be a suicide mission.)

And don’t worry about the weird spin on the linked box-office coverage, which tries to build some suspense around whether Robert Downey, Jr. will return for further projects; of course he will. He loves attention just as much as his alter ego does.
