'Iron Man 2' earns USD 327.6 million worldwide

Named as one of the most highly anticipated movies for this summer, 'Iron Man' sequel has performed better than the first film which collected USD 96 million when it was debuted in May 2008, by earning USD 133.6 million in the first week in US, Aceshowbiz online reported.
The comic book sequel, starring Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke took in an additional USD 57.2 million in overseas markets boosting its worldwide collection to USD 327.6 million.

However, 'Iron Man 2' does not manage to break the record set by 'The Dark Knight' in May 2008 with USD 158.4 million tally and is only named fifth biggest bow ever.
On the second position of this week's box office is last week's champion 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'. Experiencing a great decrease (72.1 per cent), this horror flick gains an approximately USD 9.2 million on its second weekend.

Following the Warner Bros Pictures' movie is 'How to Train Your Dragon' which also drops one place to the third. The former winner raked in an estimated USD 6.8 million this weekend, making a total of USD 201.1 million so far.
Meanwhile, two romantic comedy movies, 'Date Night' and 'The Back-Up Plan', sit on the fourth and fifth spots respectively.

The movie which sees the collaboration of Steve Carell and Tina Fey collects an estimated USD 5.3 million, while the Jennifer Lopez-starring film obtains an approximately USD 4.3 million revenue.
