'Iron Man 3' Already a Box-Office Smash Overseas

In lieu of a traditional box office column this week (because very little changed outside of Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain winning the weekend with an estimated $20 million haul), we wanted to keep you up to date in the meteoric rise of a movie everyone will be talking about this week … Iron Man 3.

Shane Black’s sequel, the latest in Marvel’s impressive run of superhero epics, opened in several international markets over the weekend, and already has posted a whopping $195.3 million in ticket sales, according to Walt Disney Pictures.

The studio mapped out some key milestones set by Iron Man 3, stating that the film enjoyed:

- The biggest opening weekend ever in Argentina, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.

- The biggest opening day ever in Taiwan, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.

- The biggest Marvel opening weekend in: Australia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Finland, Hungary, Romania, New Zealand, Argentina, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines and Malaysia.

- And it ranked as the No. 1 film in every market, and is the biggest opening weekend of all time in Asia Pacific and Latin America.

Walt Disney and Marvel say that Iron Man 3 is even tracking ahead of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers in many international markets … significant because that film was the highest-grossing movie of 2012. It was expected that Iron Man 3 would benefit from the success of The Avengers. But I’m not sure how many people expected the sequel to possibly surpass Whedon’s blockbuster!

There’s still a lot of time, and a lot of ground to cover. Marvel’s movie doesn’t even open in the U.S. until May 3. Do you have your tickets yet? Are you planning to see the sequel in 3D and/or IMAX 3D? Let us know below.
