Hollywood News: Weekend Box Office Recap

The first weekend of the Summer movie season is in the books and all I can say is We told ya so:

Despite Nikki Finke's video game portending or Patrick Dempsy's facial stubble, nothing could stop the tin-suited juggernaut from decimating the box office this weekend.

According to Paramount's estimates, "Iron Man" became the 2nd-biggest opening by a film that wasn't a sequel and the 10th-largest opening weekend of all time. It cleared over $30 million on Friday alone, and finished its opening weekend at over $100 million.
