Before today, only 15 films had ever made $1 billion at the box office. Now, a sixteenth member has joined the club.
With only two weeks in American theaters, Iron Man 3 has made $1 billion worldwide!
The first film in Marvel Phase 2 has brought in $301.9 million domestically, grossing $698.9 million internationally.
Robert Downey, Jr. stars in what may be his final Iron Man film, with Shane Black directing. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Stephanie Szostak, Jon Favreau, and Ty Simpkins round out the Iron Man 3 cast.
The film has seen two weekends atop the Box Office, but with Star Trek Into Darkness opening yesterday, it may be pushed down a spot this weekend.
