Midnight grosses give pic a sizable start

“Iron Man 2” got off to a sizable start this weekend, with midnight grosses totaling $7.5 million.

Midnight grosses for the Paramount and Marvel comic book sequel will count toward the film’s three-day opening gross, which Par expects could land near Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” $135.6 million debut in 2006.

“Dark Knight” grossed $18.5 million during midnight grosses.

“Iron Man 2” is screening at a total 4,380 locations, the most of any film to date.

“Iron” reps Marvel’s first film under Disney’s new tenure; Par is distributing.
