The numbers are in from Iron Man 3's opening night! The film took in a whopping $15.6 million from last night's screenings.
Compare that to the $18.7 million midnight opening for The Avengers (IM3 began screening at 9pm). The turnout puts Iron Man 3 on pace for a very big opening weekend
Iron Man 3 is expected to make at least $150 million this weekend, which will be a very respectable opening for the film that's meant to launch Marvel Phase 2.
