We knew "Iron Man 3" was going to be a huge opening, after we saw the impressive International box office numbers roll in. We couldn't have guessed however, that it would open at $175 million, only to become the second highest grossing film for a weekend, behind Marvel's "The Avengers".
The top 5 biggest openings include "The Avengers" at #1 grossing $207 million, "Iron Man 3" at #2 with $175 million, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" at #3 with $169 million, "The Dark Knight Rises" at #4 with $160 million and "The Dark Knight" at #5 with $158 million. That means Disney and Warner Bros. have solidified themselves as the key players to beat for big openings.
"Iron Man 3" reunites us with Robert Downey Jr. in the role he was born to play, and we also get to say hello again to Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as Rhodes and Jon Favreau as Happy. New memorable introductions include Sir Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin and Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian.
