Iron Man 3 internationally is opening bigger than even The Avengers with $195.3m from its first 5 days in theatres in 42 territories representing 79% of the marketplace abroad.
It’s the #1 film in every market and is the biggest opening weekend of all time in Asia Pacific and Latin America.
The Marvel/Disney actioner starring Robert Downey Jr already has surpassed the entire international run of Captain America in one weekend and looks like it will knock off all the previous international Marvel films in no time.
The first Iron Man took in $266m internationally, the second took in $308m, and last year’s Thor took in $269m. The Avengers went on to make a staggering $895m overseas.
