Iron Man 3 obliterates box office overseas
Iron Man 3 obliterated the box office overseas, which opened at a staggering, but not necessarily surprising, $195.3 million in 42 markets. That number beats last year’s, The Avengers, which debuted at $185.1 million internationally.nIn 2010, Iron Man 2 opened up at $100 million overseas, which was an amazing number at that time.
Personally, I’m excited to see newcomer to the franchise, director Shane Black, and what he brings to the table. He’s a director that I talked about when we did our Top 3 Underdogs in film. He’s done a lot of great work and the marketing for Iron Man 3 makes me think he’s continued that trend.
Alongside Black and Robert Downing Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle also are returning cast members.
Iron Man 3 opens this Friday, May 3rd.
