“Iron Man 2” rockets past $100M at international box

By Sean O’Connell

American audiences have five more days to wait before they can sample Jon Favreau’s anticipated sequel, “Iron Man 2.” But the movie opened overseas last week, and international audiences have wasted no time digging into the next adventure of billionaire playboy Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)

Paramount Pictures International said Sunday that “Iron Man 2” already has earned $100.2 million in 53 countries. That early total includes $12.2 million in the UK and $10.8 million in Korea. Paramount said the sequel earned $8.2 million in Russia, setting a new record for a live action film distributed by Paramount.

There’s plenty more to come. “Iron Man 2” has yet to open in China, India, Finland, Turkey, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Japan. It’s also expected to clean up here in the States once Paramount drops it into theaters.

The first “Iron Man” cleaned up, as well, netting $318 million in the U.S. and $266 million in international box office tallies. Analysts are debating whether “Iron Man 2” can beat the all-time, opening weekend, three-day box office record of $158 million, currently held by Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight.”
