It wasn’t much of a surprise to see Marvel Studio‘s, Iron Man 3, at the top of the Box Office this weekend. With Robert Downey JR returning as Tony Stark, and Shane Black behind the camera; it was another winning combination that equaled Box Office gold.

Not one of the other movies in the Top 10 came even close to that kind of success, with Pain & Gain bringing in $7.6mil and everything else going downhill from there.
