“Iron Man” retains top spot at UK box office

Hollywoodnews.com: Perhaps acting as foreshadowing for what will happen here in the States in a few days, Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man 2” remained atop the international box office charts in its second weekend, beating back a stream of new films that aimed to challenge its iron crown.

The blockbuster, which stars Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, pulled in $4.9 million in the UK, adding to the 7.6 million pounds the film earned in its opening weekend, according to Screen International.

“Iron Man 2” had to fend off “Furry Vengeance,” with Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields, and the time-warp comedy “Hot Tub Time Machine.”

Competition will be a little tougher for “Iron Man 2” in the U.S., as Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” plans to hit theaters on Friday, giving the Marvel superhero a stiff test. Yet analysts still predict Iron Man will triumph over Russell Crowe’s adventure, according to early columns. We’ll check back with sites like BoxOfficeMojo.com and BoxOfficePredict.com as the week progresses.
