BOX OFFICE: IRON MAN 3 Set To Cross $1 Billion Worldwide Today
In less than 25 days, Marvel's huge sequel to last year's The Avengers , will finally cross the $1 Billion dollar mark today. While it hasn't reached the landmark number as quickly as The Avengers, this is great news for Iron Man fans and comic fans in general...
It's a great day to be a Marvel fan when a movie based on a comic book crosses a billion dollars! Superheroes now dominate the box office in ways we could have never previously imagined possible. As for Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3, this is a huge feat, especially considering the fact that the first Iron Man film only made $585 million worldwide. The at one-time considered "B-list" character is now one of only two superheroes to cross the billion dollar mark all by themselves. While the official numbers won't be in until tomorrow, The Wrap reports that:
$700 million from abroad and $300 million domestically -- is a major triumph for Disney. Its decision to bring aboard a Chinese partner for "Iron Man 3" and focus the Disney marketing machine on the booming foreign market looks pretty good right now, too.
Marvel's "Iron Man 3" pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
