Marvel Takes Top Spot In Worldwide Movie Box Office 2013
So just how much did Iron Man 3 make, worldwide?
Iron Man 3, Marvel's latest blockbuster, took home $1.215 billion worldwide in 2013, making it the box office champ of the year. It's the 5th highest grossing film of all time, beaten only by Avatar, Titanic, Marvel's The Avengers and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Disney must be pleased. The House of Mouse also made two other of the top-ten 2013 earners, Monsters University ($743.6 million, #5), and Thor: The Dark World ($629.4 million, #8). Iron Man 3 was the only 2013 film to take more than a billion; its closest competition, Despicable Me 2, took home $918.7 million worldwide.
If anybody knows whether Robert Downey Jr will reprise his Tony Stark role, they aren't saying. Downey's contract expired after Iron Man 3's release, but the actor has said he's open to extending it. There's still a lot that could be done with the character, Downey believes.
"Let me just say me and the agents and the lawyers are having a bit of a ball right now," said Downey to ScreenRant back in February. "'You pinch me! No, you pinch me!'"
Don't worry IM3 won't be alone for long "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" will join it in the 2013 billion dollar gross eventually.
Given his fees for the past few movies, I wonder if it may be financially viable to get a new face for Iron Man?
Frozen just made $500 million with several territories left to even open, but I'm not sure if that's fair since it'll continue to make more money at the start of the coming year. It's holding incredibly well for a film in its sixth week of release and should cross $300 million domestically by next week.
Very well deserved win for IM 3; saw it in theaters and got the Bluray.
Discpicable SHIT at two, for some reason.... :S
So a top grossing movie we can actually like. is this the first one?
He's getting 70mil+ per Iron Man movie, he must be crazy if he would decline that.
I'm quite surprised IM3 beat The Avengers and was a crappier film.
