Even Tony Stark would be impressed with Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3″ unbelievable domestic (international) opening weekend by landing on the top spot of North American box office.

Taking in an estimated $175.3 million, the Marvel movie posts the second biggest opening weekend behind “The Avengers”, which comes to $207.4 million in April 2012.  Disney’s $200 million superhero sequel earned $175.3 million in its first 3 days in North America from 4,253 cinema theaters.

According to the Disney executive VP of distribution Dave Hollis tells that – “It is an extraordinary start, and the start on the U.S. side is something that we are extremely proud of.” Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo tells that “IM3″ success factor is placed on the fact that moviegoers considered the movie more as a follow-up to “The Avengers” than as a sequel to “Iron Man 2″, which was less well-received by critics and followers.

Last week’s victor “Pain and Gain” flips down to the second position by earning $20.2 million last week, the Michael Bay movie about bodybuilders turning into criminals to change their lives bags $7.6 million approx.. in its second place. “42”, a tale of baseball legend Jackie Robinson who wore jersey number 42, secures the third spot.

Check out the Top Ten Movies at Box Office for May 3-5:

  • “Iron Man 3″ – $175.3 million
  • “Pain and Gain” – $7.6 million
  • “42” – $6.2 million
  • “Oblivion” – $5.8 million
  • “The Croods” – $4.2 million
  • “The Big Wedding” – $3.9 million
  • “Mud” – $2.1 million
