Iron Man 2 Hits $300 Million!

With Tuesday’s box office take of  $511 thousand, Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2 has achieved the benchmark of having crossed the $300 million mark domestically, joining the fairly exclusive ranks of only 34 movies that have grossed that amount (not accounting for inflation).  It still has some work cut out for it to achieve the $318 million amassed by its predecessor in 2008, as well as the $33 million it would need if it wants to surpass Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland as the top grossing movie of the year in North America.

Internationally, Iron Man 2 has reach $295 million for a worldwide total of $595.3 million, which tops the first film’s $585.2 million.

Here is the full trailer that was released in March.
