‘Iron Man 3’ Crosses $400 Million at the Domestic Box Office

Iron Man 3 crosses the $400 million domestic box office mark The Marvel Studios blockbuster Iron Man 3 has passed the $400 million box office plateau, racking up $400.3 million after just seven weeks in release.

Director Shane Black's blockbuster has earned over $1.2 billion worldwide, making it the fifth highest grossing movie of all time behind Avatar ($2.7 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion), Marvel's The Avengers ($1.5 billion), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($1.3 billion). The Marvel Phase Two sequel scored the second highest opening weekend in history with $174.1 million last month.

The action sequel has already surpassed Marvel's The Avengers' totals in China, Finland, Hong Kong, Korea, Russia, Poland, Switzerland, Thailand, and Ukraine. It is also the highest-grossing movie ever in Malaysia and Vietnam. Don't be surprised if Iron Man 3 ends its theatrical run as the third highest grossing movie behind Avatar and Titanic.

Iron Man 3 was released May 3rd, 2013.

      In regards to IM3, MOS, and any other of these films that stupidly get thrown into what @ghostman so rightly called a "dick measuring" contest, you all paid to see these films, adding to the totals you deride. So...shut up.

          Not wholly deserved, in my humble opinion. Iron Man 3 had its moments, but I could easily say it was the weakest MCU film for me thus far and its fanboy praise feels out of place. Even close friends of mine are overlooking its flaws (something neither they nor I did for TDKR) in lieu of focusing on its positives. It's obvious bias yet hardly anyone admits to it? A solid action film? Absolutely. A strong Iron Man film? Nay.

                                  @c-a-r-t-m-a-n I'm not taking any "criticism" for there wasn't any to begin with. Also, please note that Iron Man 3 has been out for quite a while now, about 7 weeks, and Man of Steel was JUST released. Of course it would not have made enough money, for it came out a week ago. You know how dumb of a statement that sounded? I'm sure if good word of mouth about Man of Steel gets out to the public, it can earn up to $250 million as my estimated total when their theatrical run ends. Also, IM3 made $175mil its first week, and MOS has earned $160mil in 6 days. So they're about equal in earning money. Like I said before, I don't care how much money this movie or that movie makes, it's all about entertainment and enjoyment. If I love the movie, then it was a success to me no matter how much money it made at the box office.
