Batman Iron Man!
The third installment of Robert Downey Jr.'s superhero franchise hasn't even opened in the United States yet, and within three days of international release in 42 overseas markets, has already made $195.3 MILLION!
That means the flick has already beaten out Avengers, which debuted internationally to $185.1 million…and we all know how THAT went on to do!
However, over here stateside, we still have a while to wait before we get to see Tony Stark in action, which means that for the domestic box office, it was Mark Wahlberg and The Rock's Pain and Gain which made the number one position, pulling in $20 million, and pushing last week's winner, the Tom Cruise-starring Oblivion, down to number two, with $17.4 million!
Ch-ch-check out the weekend's full box office top ten in the United States…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
1. Pain and Gain, $20 million
2. Oblivion, $17.4 million
