IronMan Breaks $100million Opening

As predicted, IronMan appears to have broken the $100million mark on its North American opening weekend.

Wired says:

The Marvel Comics adaptation, starring Robert Downey Jr. as the guy in the metal suit, hauled in $100.7 million during its opening weekend and $104.2 million since debuting Thursday night, the second-best premiere ever for a nonsequel, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The film also scored overseas with $96.7 million in 57 countries where it began opening Wednesday, putting its worldwide total at $201 million.

Surpassing their benchmark hopes of a modest $70million, Marvel films is likely already running to the bank and getting deals lined up for the sequel and likely building a lot of confidence behind their next tentpole franchise to bring to the screen.

I agree with Doug. It should be Thor. (That also ties into the Avengers Initiative Fury spoke of in the added clip in IronMan)

Did this number match your estimates?
