Iron Man 2 mogul Tony Stark has already earned $100.2 million in just one weekend trip abroad (comped by Stark Industries, I’m sure).  Who needs American money anymore, anyway?  The superhero flick doesn’t premiere until this Friday in the states, but after a five-day release at 6,764 international theaters, Tony Stark has already flown past the magical $100 million mark, winning the weekend in 52 of 53 territories. (I’d love to know the one holdout . . . Uzbekistan?)  The sequel is running 26% ahead of the original Iron Man‘s comparable foreign total, which went on to earn $585 million worldwide.

It makes you wonder how high the film can soar can soar this weekend domestically?  Paramount can count on another $100+ million from us North Americans this weekend, but could Iron Man 2 approach the record $158 million opening of The Dark Knight?  To be continued . . .
