Box Office: 'Iron Man' soars. 'Speed Racer' sore.

    May 18, 2008

Early weekend estimates published by Box Office Mojo have 'Iron Man' continuing its impressive run at the box office.

As expected the film slipped to the #2 spot, behind the highly-anticipated 'Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian'. Regardless, it still took in another $31 million in its third week in theaters. That number amount to a respectable opening weekend for most movies. The film's domestic gross stands at about $222.5 million.

However, it's more bad news for the other comic-to-film in theaters, 'Speed Racer'. After a weak debut at #3 last week, the movie sputtered some more, dropping to #4 and losing almost 59% of its audience. The expensive anime retread took in only $7.6 millon, bringing its two-week domestic gross to about $24.4 million.
