Stark Box Office Competition For IRON MAN 3! $175M Weekend In Sights...

Marvel has done it again. Looks like IRON MAN 3 will own the #2 box office record for largest opening weekend ever, behind - well... Marvel. THE AVENGERS owns the #1 spot from last year. IRON MAN 3 has launched at an estimated $175M for the weekend and that is something to celebrate. IM3 needs to best $169M (HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS 2) for the honor.

It kinda underscores the good decision it was for DC Comics and Warners to go 3D for MAN OF STEEL doesn't it? Not to mention upcoming movies THE WOLVERINE and X-MEN, etc.

IRON MAN 3 is also obliterating the other two 2D Iron Man movies in the franchise. Certainly the movie has the goodwill generated from THE AVENGERS but also that 3D box office take is impressive.

But that's not all. Overseas IRON MAN 3 continues to fight the good fight, with an impressive $505M take thus far for a total worldwide count of $680M! IM3 is easily in flight toward $1B+.

And here's an impressive tidbit of info: IRON MAN 3 currently accounts for 93 percent of sales on Fandango and 91 percent of sales on MovieTickets.com. DANG.

Look for my review of IRON MAN 3 Tuesday! Can't wait. Personal matters have pushed my screening back a few days but I am itching to see this thing!! Also should have some interesting news on some native shot 3D tentpoles coming soon :-) Stay tuned.

IRON MAN 3 is now playing.
