Weekend Box Office: Iron Man Leaves Speed Racer in the Dust
05.12.08 by REELZ
Comic book flick Iron Man continued its blockbuster run over the weekend, easily claiming the top spot at the box office with a tally of over $50 million. The Wachowski siblings' anime epic Speed Racer sputtered badly in its first week in release, earning just over $20.2 million and barely edging out the poorly-reviewed Ashton Kutcher/Cameron Diaz rom-com What Happens in Vegas for second place. Rounding out the top five were the Patrick Dempsey rom-com Made of Honor and Tina Fey's odd couple comedy Baby Mama, which earned $7.6 million and $5.8 million, respectively.
