Weekend B.O.: Iron Man 2 zooms, Metropolis towers
Iron Man 2 tops the weekend box-office chart -- due at least in part to my own purchase of three IMAX-screening tickets at inflated prices. (Hey, it was what The Long-Suffering Mrs. L. and our son wanted to see as we celebrated Mother's Day.) And I have to admit: I thoroughly enjoyed it, maybe even a smidge more than I enjoyed Iron Man. But what about the box-office performance of "smaller" movies this weekend? As usual, IndieWire delivers a detailed report. Glad to see the newly restored Metropolis is doing boffo biz in New York. Can't wait to see it on the big screen in my part of the world.
