THAT CLANK YOU HEAR IS IRON MAN FALLING

Iron Man 2 appeared to have feet of tin Monday after final figures came in revealing that the movie earned even less than estimated — $1 million less. According to final Warner Bros. figures, the movie collected $52 million as it dived 59 percent from its opening-week total. Universal’s Robin Hood turned out to be not much of a challenger as it opened with $36.1 million, a figure regarded as a letdown but offset by foreign totals coming in at $111.1 million. Two counter-programming movies targeting women followed, with lackluster results. Letters to Juliet opened with $13.5 million and Just Wright made its debut with $8.3 million. Overall, the box office was virtually flat with the comparable weekend a year ago.


The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Box Office Mojo (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date):

1. Iron Man 2, Paramount, $52,041,005, 2 Wks. ($211,200,876); 2. Robin Hood, Universal, $36,063,385, (New); 3. Letters to Juliet, Summit, $13,540,486, (New); 4. Just Wright, Fox Searchlight, $8,284,989, (New); 5. How to Train Your Dragon, Paramount/DreamWorks Animation, $5,003,536, 8 Wks. ($207,647,696); 6. A Nightmare on Elm Street, Warner Bros., $4,657,190, 3 Wks. ($56,066,595); 7. Date Night, Fox, $3,823,515, 6 Wks. ($86,522,622); 8. The Back-up Plan, CBS Films, $2,387,480, 4 Wks. ($34,124,782); 9. Furry Vengeance, Summit, $2,242,106, 3 Wks. ($15,089,070); 10. Clash of the Titans, Warner Bros., $1,231,396, 7 Wks. ($160,127,747).
