ComingSoon.net has posted two separate articles on the box office results this weekend, one on the domestic figures and the other on the international results. Here are some clips from each;

Last week's top movie, Marvel Studios' The Incredible Hulk (Universal) starring Edward Norton took a 61% plunge this weekend, dropping to third place with $21.6 million just behind Kung Fu Panda with a total of $96.5 million, about $4 million behind the previous Hulk movie five years ago.

[Internationally,] The Incredible Hulk finished a close second by grabbing $23.4 million at 4,700 theaters from 50 territories in its second weekend. "Hulk" has raised its totals to $63.3 million overseas and $159.8 million worldwide.

Having earned a badge of honor from becoming the first movie of the year to cross the $300 million mark, Marvel Studios' Iron Man (Paramount) added another $4 million to its take, once again having the smallest drop-off from last weekend in the Top 10

Iron Man is kicking all kinds of ass.

The terrible taste of the previous Hulk is preventing the new one from really taking off like it should

Absolutely.

Despite people hearing that it's good, I think the Ang Lee Hulk just burned everyone out for this one. It's too bad because this one was really good.

I think we all can safely assume that MARVEL STUDIOS is going to get these movies right. If it's an outside studio with little Marvel input, it'll probably suck.

If they pull off Thor right, they can do any movie.

Yea, that and a Silver Surfer movie seem like the hardest ones to pull off!

Thor could be Academy Award worthy if done right. It has avenues that Spidey, X-men don't.

Yup. It could be great, or it can reach new levels of suckitude. Let's hope for the former.

Thor with all it's mythology and mysticism will have themes that the other marvel franchises don't. It can tap into the Harry Potter, LOTR, and Aragon genres, as well as touch on the Troy, 300, and Hancock franchises.

It really is a golden egg.


Same thing with Namor.

kind alike what Batman and Robin did for Batman Begins, people might've been a bit turned off because of that, still, BB did huge money, more so than Incredible Hulk looks will make in the US, but with worlwide gross + DVD sales Hulk will get the respect its due.

The Thor movie should be a sequel to Adventures in Babysitting.

Yeah. I haven't slept well this week and went straight through the cranky phase to the insane phase. It's good times. :)
