Iron Man 3 took off this weekend with one of the most successful debuts in box office history.
The Marvel sequel, again starring Robert Downey Jr. as the superhero, earned an estimated 175.3 million dollars. It's the second-biggest domestic debut of all time, ranking only behind the 207.4 million dollars collected by another superhero flick, Marvel's The Avengers, when it was released last year. That film also featured Downey as Iron Man.
So far, Iron Man 3 has made 680 million dollars worldwide. It opened overseas in a number of markets over a week ago.
Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce says one of the keys to the film's success is Ben Kingsley, who plays bad guy The Mandarin. Pearce says, "Every time I see his scenes, nothing excites me more. Sir Ben Kingsley is genuinely as good in this movie as I think he's ever been."
The previous domestic box office champ, the Mark Wahlberg-Dwayne Johnson comedy Pain & Gain, fell to second place, with 7.6 million.
