“Iron Man 2” rakes in $7.5M on midnight opening

HollywoodNews.com: Everyone has been highly anticipating “Iron Man 2” to hit theaters so that they can resume their blockbuster fix of billionaire Tony Stark. The sequel is a follow up to 2008’s “Iron Man,” which brought in $585 million worldwide from a modest $140 million budget. That film was nominated for two Oscars and while critics have come forward to express that “Iron Man 2” doesn’t live up to the prequel, you can bet that fans everywhere are still going to show their support for the loved characters.

“Iron Man 2” has blown the box office out of the water by pulling in $7.5 million alone from 2,700 theaters on its midnight showing in the U.S., according to Reuters. They also report that the film will expand to play in 4,300 theaters starting today and expect the film to bring in anywhere from $120 to $160 million for the weekend. Already the movie has brought in over $100 million from international markets in one week.

It looks like Robert Downey Jr. has another hit on his hands.
