Did anyone really expect otherwise this weekend?!

WE sure didn't!

Iron Man 3 has already DOMINATED during its early release in the overseas markets, took in an INCREDIBLE $15.6 million in its midnight release this past Thursday alone, and now, has effortlessly made its way to the TOP of the weekend's domestic box office top ten…with a momentous $175.3 million!

And while it didn't quite come close enough to break the $207.5 million record that The Avengers achieved this time last year, the super-hero threequel can now be considered the SECOND biggest opening weekend of all time!

Ah-MAY-zing! Maybe that Gwyneth Paltrow spin-off isn't so terrible an idea, after all!

    RDJ is in both of the biggest box office openings ever, and still has no Oscar!

    Re: :{D – What film should he have an Oscar for?

    Re: MewLover34 – Chaplin, no question, he deserved an Oscar for that (I think he was nominated but did not win). Love his acting.

    That film was panned by critics. It's a bomb.

    Loved it! But, hello, is anyone else noticing the beauty of James Badge Dale?!

    Re: teeter totter – You should look up who he was nominated against that year, it would have been outrageous if he won that award. Maybe the 3rd best performance in the category, more likely 4th.

    I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do, wiki34.ℂℴℳ

    I am so happy for RDJ-who can now claim to be the only movie star with $500M+ global blockbusters over the last six consecutive years. Wow

    The special effects were amazing, the action was fantastic but the plot to me was weak !
