Friday Estimates: Iron Man 2 Posts Seventh Best Opening Day

May 8th, 2010

Iron Man 2 posted an impressive, but not spectacular, opening day on Friday, according to our Saturday morning estimate. We have the superhero actioner opening with $52.2 million, based on reports so far, which would give it the seventh biggest opening day in history. That compares with a $67.2 million Friday achieved by The Dark Knight in 2008 and a $59.8 million debut by Spider-Man 3 in 2007.

Based on current figures, our projection for the full weekend is that Iron Man 2 will end around $125 million. The best case scenario is about $132 million, while the worst case figure currently stands at $119 million. That will put it fifth or sixth on the all-time weekend chart.
