It was a very active weekend at the Box Office with last week's champion Iron Man 2 making it two for two, staying atop again for a second week. New challenger Ridley Scott's Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, bowed with an impressive $13.1 million on its opening night, while Iron Man 2 pulled in $15.1 million. Weekend estimates peg Iron Man 2 at the top with $53 million, while Robin Hood earned $37 million.
The difference however, is that the challenger opened only in 3,500 theatres, while the returning champ expanded to 4,390 theatres. Thus technically, Robin Hood is outperforming its rival on an average per theatre basis but in the world of the Box Office, the grand total is what counts. Worldwide, Robin Hood was by no means was a disgrace, grossing $111 million in total.
Amanda Seyfried-starring Letters To Juliet from Summit Entertainment, placed a distant third with an estimated $13.9 million from 2,970 theatres. It is said to be the new studio's fourth largest ever debut.
