Iron Man Set to Crush Speed Racer This Weekend
05.09.08 by REELZ
Fan interest in Speed Racer seemed high a few months back, but its been dwindling heading up to today's release. Critical reaction has been extremely poor with 129 critics on Rotten Tomatoes scoring the expensive blockbuster a lowly 35 percent.
This weekend Iron Man looks to be the flick of choice once again. Fans who didn't check it out last week will likely pick it over Speed Racer and some may even choose a second viewing of the Marvel superhero flick over a first viewing of the kiddie racing pic.
Early box office analysis has Iron Man predicted to bring in just under $50 million this weekend while Racer is looking at a take in the low $30's. We'll have the full report on Monday.
