Now with long-bow Add On.
The Nikkster, as is her practice, is the first out of the gate with box office numbers. And apparently (so far) the Man in the Iron Suit is beating Robin, at least domestically.
1. IRON MAN 2 (Marvel/Paramount) Week 2 [4,390 Runs] Friday $15.2M (-70%), Estimated Weekend $53M, Estimated Cume $212M
2. ROBIN HOOD (Universal) NEW [3,503 Runs] Friday $14.9M, Estimated Weekend $40M, Estimated Cume $209M
3. LETTER TO JULIET (Summit) NEW [2,968 Runs] Friday $4.9M, Estimated Weekend $14.5M
4. JUST WRIGHT (Fox Searchlight) NEW [1,831 Runs] Friday $2.8M, Estimated Weekend $9M
5. NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (NL/WB) Week 3 [3,075] Friday $1.5M, Estimated Weekend $4.5M, Estimated Cume $55.8M
6. DATE NIGHT (Fox) Week 6 [2,481] Friday $1.2M, Estimated Weekend $4.0, Estimated Cume $36.6M
7. HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON (DWA/Par) Week 8 [2,620] Friday $1.1M, Estimated Weekend $5.2M, Estimated Cume $207.7M
You will note that Dragon, after an under-powered opening, has bested Monsters V. Aliens by a comfortable margin. (Monsters ended at around $195 million in domestic grosses, although it opened much higher than the reptile.)
Add On: Iron Man 2 collects $53 million while Robin Hood makes due with $37.1 million.
How to Train Your Dragon has the smallest drop of any Top Ten feature, declining 23%, raking in another $5.1 million, earning a cumulative $207.8 million. Next week, of course, the green ogre takes over most of its dimensional screens.
