Projections: 'Iron Man 2' Will Be Hard to Beat

4 Oct, 2010 By: Kelly Burner



The highest-profile new release Sept. 28 was Paramount Home Entertainment’s superhero sequel Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey Jr., which raked in more than $310 million to become the third highest-grossing theatrical title of 2010. From Universal Studios Home Entertainment came the comedy Get Him to the Greek, which grossed $61 million and stars Jonah Hill and Russell Brand.

Of the new releases, the sure hit is Iron Man 2, which is poised to easily trump the competition to become the top-selling, top-renting and top-Blu-ray seller for the week ended Oct. 3.

Also released this past week was the documentary Babies ($7.3 million) from Universal, the direct-to-video animated actioner Superman/Batman: Apocalypse from Warner, plus several TV DVD tie-ins, such as Fox’s Family Guy: Partial Terms of Endearment and The Cleveland Show: Season One, and the final season of “Scrubs” from Disney.
