Iron Man Opening - How it Stacks Up

Not too shabby. Where will The Dark Knight and The Incredible Hulk measure up? Stay tuned.

Dark Knight will open strong then drop off after the first weekend. Hulk will open mild ($60MM), then drop 50% for the next few weeks and end with $110MM domestic.

so finky, you think iron man will rule the summer? I still think the drak knight will edge out iron man, but i am not as sure as i used to be.

I agree with the Hulk opening prediction, but if the movie is HALF as good as the trailer looks, the positive word-of-mouth will be bringing in the people burned by Ang Lee...

The Dark Knight might drop like every other movie drops. ALL movies drop after opening weekend, but I don't think it'll drop as much as you think, Finky.

Iron Man is going to stay strong for a good run because of the audience reactions I've seen, (I've seen it three times now and every showing has pretty excited people watching it)... What's encouraging is that only 10% or less of the people are staying for the post-credits treat, which means it's not all movie and comic geeks making this big, it's everybody. In the last showing, I saw a group of three 50+ couples, and THEY loved it...
