'Iron Man' to Be First 2008 Movie to Pass 300 Million Dollars Mark


The superhero flick adapted from Marvel's comic books is predicted to be joining the 300 million dollar club on Thursday, June 19.

The excitement level on the "Iron Man" camp may perhaps be in its ultimate height. The first summer movie of 2008 is about to add another significant accomplishment to its name. On Thursday, June 19, the Marvel's comic books adaptation will become the first feature film of the year to cross the $300 million mark.

The forecast has been offered out since until Tuesday, June 17, the superhero film about the man in armor suit starred by Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow has pulled in approximately $299.3 million from the United States and Canada's market. If the film's recent daily grosses of about $680,000 is put into consideration, the calculation following suggested that it will bolt through the $300 million threshold on the predicted date.

Compared to "Spider-Man 3" that managed to pass the $300 million mark on its 23rd days of screening, "Iron Man" required more time taking 51 days. Nonetheless, the Jon Favreau-directed film is still on a head start to break the mark in front of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", which is also predicted to be able to join the $300 club soon enough because as of Tuesday, it has earned about $279.5 million.

Released into theaters on May 2, the Paramount Pictures' action flick follows the story of Tony Stark as he develops an armored suit to escape captivity. Later on, when he discovers a nefarious plot with global implication, he puts on the suit once again and this time, he is on a mission to protect the world. Following the success of "Iron Man" in opening big during its first weekend screening, Marvel Entertainment have revealed that the sequel "Iron Man 2" is scheduled to be released on April 30, 2010.
