Corporate News: ‘Iron Man 3’ Dominates Overseas Box Office

Iron Man 3 created by Walt Disney Co. opened internationally this past weekend. Overall, the movie grossed roughly $195 million on Sunday alone after opening in most countries. Although Iron Many 3 has yet to open in the United States, Canada, Germany, China and Russia it is expected to have a huge opening night in their given countries. Specifically in the U.S and Canada, it is projected they will have an opening of well over $100 million.

These earlier openings in foreign countries are largely due to the May Day holiday on May 1st. The May Day holiday is when many foreign adults and children have days off of work and school. Disney also used this strategy last year when they came out with The Avengers.

This movie premiere affects many people indirectly and directly as it employs hundreds if not thousands of workers to help make the movie possible. I am personally excited about this movie as I enjoyed both Iron Man and Iron Man 2.
