Iron Man 3 Destroys the Box Office

Iron Man 3 debuted with a hefty $175.3 million this weekend.  Making it the Second biggest opening weekend ever (of course, only behind The Avengers).  This bodes well for Marvel (and Disney) as now anything related to The Avengers (Captain America, Thor and possibly Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant Man) will see a boost in sales as everyone wants see how The Avengers saga pans out.  Luckily for Marvel, people have forgotten about Iron Man 2.

Iron Man 3 has grossed over $680 million worldwide so far. It also already is the highest grossing film worldwide of 2013.

No other movie opened in wide release this weekend.  In fact, the number 2 and number 4 spot, held by Pain and Gain and Oblivion, were directly damaged by Iron Man's success, as they dropped well over 60% from last weekend.

This is going to be a huge Summer.
