Iron Man 3 and his Money

second biggest opening weekend ever

Iron Man 3 Earnings

May 6, 2013 : Looks like Iron Man 3 had a $175.3 million dollar opening weekend in the American market. $504.8 million earnings for the rest of the world makes a grand total start (worldwide) of $680.1 million.

May 5, 2013: Iron Man 3 is playing in 4,253 theaters across the domestic cinema market and only the final Harry Potter movie has had a bigger start for it's run.

Nikki Finke is saying Iron Man 3 is probably going to accumulate $650 million for it's worldwide gross for 12 day period. Marvel Studios and Disney must be happy with their second outing together (after last years Avengers) as these record-breaking numbers roll in. Director Shane Black has had an up-and-down career, but with these numbers piling up under his name, getting a pick of future film projects seems assured. Paramount had actually owned the rights for these two films (Avengers and Iron Man 3), but Disney bought the world rights and has been aggressive marketing these movies, especially on Iron Man 3.

Downey returning for future Iron Man roles?

Ironman Downey Jr

May 3, 2013: Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood is saying the numbers look like Iron Man 3 is headed for a $174 million dollar opening weekend in domestic market, with $361 million already piled up earlier from opening in some foreign markets. Production budget on Iron Man 3 reported at around $200 milllion. [Iron Man 2 had a $128 million dollar opening weekend.]

May 2, 2013: Robert Downey Jr said he was 'renegotiating' his "long" contract concerning future Iron Man roles during his interview on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Does this jeopardize an Iron Man IV or Avengers II? Iron Man III is coming out tomorrow night, midnight, across America. Earnings for Iron Man 3 are already at $242,100,000 for foreign markets.

Marvel's new poster for the theatre debut:

April 25, 2013: Marvel Studios started up the Iron Man 3 releases with 12 countries on Wednesday (April 24), with $13 million already rolled in. USA debut is May 3.

Iron Man I made $585.2 million worldwide, and Iron Man II made $623.9M. See this page for a list of the top-earning Superhero films.

Iron Man 3 opens overseas where last years Avengers took in $895 million, and Marvel (i.e., Disney) is hoping for some drag from off Avengers coat-tails. (So far, Iron Man 3 has opened with better numbers than Avengers in some countries, France for example, so it may turn out the way Disney wants. Right now they're shooting for a $125 million starting weekend.)

One problem is a contentious contract from Disney for future film distribution that has theater chains holding off, and so chains like Regal and AMC are not offering advance sales on Iron Man 3 so as not to get pulled into the new Disney contract.
