Bows and arrows are clearly no match for Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit. The early numbers are in and Iron Man 2 held up quite well taking in an impressive $53 million in its second week. Robin Hood’s $37.1 million doesn’t sound all that bad, but can be seen as a massive failure considering the Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe epic cost a whopping $200 million to make.
The brutal big boys were followed by the Amanda Seyfried romancer Letters to Juliet. That one opened up with $13.7 million while Queen Latifah’s comedy, Just Right, followed with $8.5. How to Train Your Dragon enjoyed yet another week in the top five pulling in $5.1 million in its eighth go-around bringing the domestic total to $207.7 million.
The bottom five belongs to A Nightmare on Elm Street, Date Night, The Back-up Plan, Furry Vengeance and Clash of the Titans. Nightmare continues to fall fast adding just $4.7 million to the pot, bringing the total to $56 million. However, Date Night is still holding strong making $4 million in week six.
Eighth place goes to The Back-up Plan with $2.4 million and ninth to Furry Vengeance with $2.3. Lastly, there’s Clash of the Titans taking in $1.3 million in week seven boosting it’s total to $160 million.
