FLOP POP FIZZLE, The Obligatory Weekend B.O. Report: ‘Iron Man 2′ Remains The Top Draw Domestically, ‘Robin Hood’ Worldwide #1

Robin Hood was no match for Iron Man 2, which scored another $53M in the top spot. The classic tale, which was given the Gladiator treatment by director Ridley Scott, was a misfire domestically, earning only $36M. However, worldwide the movie is a hit and made over $74M. Still, Universal has plenty of reasons to worry about the drop off in week 2. In spite of its original budget of $130, the troubled production ended up costing over $200M. The romantic weepie Letters to Juliet, starring Vanessa Redgrave and Amanda Seyfried, which scored surprisingly decent reviews, debuted in third and Queen Latifah‘s low key basketball themed rom-com, Just Wright, came in fourth.
