Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper

How’s IM2 doing so far??

im2 Hows IM2 doing so far??

On its first day of release Friday, Marvel Studio’s “Iron Man 2” rocketed to #1 in domestic gross with an estimated 52.4 million dollars at the box office.

That christened the summer boxoffice season in grand style; however, based on that lofty yet not-strong-enough figure, it doesn’t look like the Man of Iron’s sequel will surpass the record-breaking weekend that the July 2008 opening of “The Dark Knight” claimed: 158.4 million dollars!!

“Iron Man 2” is on pace to finish the 3 day start in the $125 million-$135 million neighborhood.

IM2 cost at least $170 million to produce.

Reviews have been mostly positive but not over the top. Good word of mouth may help it to sustain weekend momentum through Mother’s Day.
