Iron Man 2 fends off Robin Hood at box office

By Tribute on May 17, 2010 | 1 Comment

Iron Man 2 continued to do strong box office sales during its second weekend, earning an estimated $53 million to fend off the newly opened Robin Hood “prequel,” starring Russell Crowe.

Directed by Ridley Scott, Robin Hood is a darker and more violent look at the legendary figure, and earned $37.1 million domestically, though it did better overseas, with a total $111 million worldwide.

Iron Man 2 has sold $457 million in global ticket sales to date. Letters to Juliet opened in third with just $13 million in ticket sales, falling below studio expectations.

Just Wright starring Queen Latisha, which opened on fewer screens than the other films in the top five, managed to earn $8.5 million.

How to Train Your Dragon, which has shown amazing staying power, grossed another $5 million in fifth place in its eighth weekend at the box office. At the Canadian box office, the top three movies were the same, with How to Train Your Dragon coming in fourth and A Nightmare on Elm Street in fifth place.
