    'Iron Man' beats 'Narnia' overseas

    'Narnia' sequel still improves over precursor

    "Iron Man"


    Paramount's "Iron Man" maintained a tenuous hold on the top overseas boxoffice spot over the weekend, grossing an estimated $25.6 million from about 7,500 screens in 62 territories, and narrowly besting newcomer "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" and the romantic comedy "What Happens in Vegas."

    The second title in the franchise based on C.S. Lewis' series of fantasy novels, "Prince Caspian" opened in just 12 non-European markets to an estimated $20.7 million, which distributor Disney said is a "27% improvement above the first 'Narnia' in the same bucket of markets over the comparable release frame."

    Precursor "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" was released in 2005 and accumulated about $420 million overseas, becoming the 18th-biggest international hit ever. Combined with its No. 1 domestic gross on the weekend, "Prince Caspian" has an early worldwide cume of $77.3 million.
    Meanwhile, "Prince Caspian" drew significantly higher returns that did the first "Narnia" in eight of the territories it played; the biggest of these was Mexico, with an estimated $7.5 million from 740 screens, 36% better in the market than its predecessor. In Russia, the tally was $5.6 million from 600 sites, 53% better than the first "Narnia." "Prince Caspian" opens in Japan, a strong "Narnia" market, on Wednesday.

    "Iron Man" maintained its overall No. 1 position for the third consecutive frame. Noteworthy was its strength in the U.K. with an estimated $3.7 million from 479 locations for a market cume of $25.6 million. The overseas total for the Marvel Comics superhero stands at $206 million. The film's worldwide cume is $428.5 million.

    Just saw Iron Man yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. So far, it's the only movie I plan on seeing at the theater again since LOTR trilogy.

    Paramount takes $1 billion abroad

    Milestone reached six weeks early

    By Archie Thomas
    Variety
    June 16, 2008

    LONDON — Thanks chiefly to the knockout one-two punch of “Indiana Jones” and “Iron Man,” Paramount Pictures International has passed $1 billion in international box office grosses six weeks earlier than last year.

    Studio sped past the $1 billion milepost on June 14, making it the first studio to bank $1 billion internationally this year.

    Last year, PPI’s first in operation, the studio grossed $1.6 billion in total, reaching the $1 billion mark at the end of July.

    PPI’s strong showing thus far this year is founded primarily on the boffo box office success of two summer tentpoles, which have combined for $560 million and are still in running. “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” has banked $350 million and is yet to bow in Japan, and Robert Downey Jr.. starrer “Iron Man” has chalked up $210 million in PPI territories ($250 million total international).

    June 15, 2008

    Robert Downey Jr. starrer “Iron Man” -- a Marvel Studios pic distributed by Par -- all but crossed the $300 million mark at the domestic B.O. Cume hit $297.4 million as the tentpole declined only 31% in its seventh weekend to an estimated $5.1 million from 2,403 runs.

    “Iron Man” and “Incredible Hulk” were both fully developed, financed and produced by Marvel.

    'Iron Man' bolts past $300 million

    First to pass the mark domestically in 2008

    By Carl DiOrio
    The Hollywood Reporter

    "Iron Man"

    Paramount's "Iron Man" becomes 2008's first $300 million domestic grosser Thursday.

    Through Tuesday, the Marvel-produced comic book adaptation had rung up an estimated $299.3 million in the U.S. and Canada. And with recent daily grosses for "Iron Man" of no less than $680,000, there was no question about its blowing past the rarefied $300 million mark Thursday.

    "(This) is a testament to the talented, hardworking group involved with this picture," Par vice chairman Rob Moore said. "Needless to say, we are all thrilled with such an amazing achievement."

    Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel called the milestone "the perfect way to kick off" Marvel Entertainment's new production venture. The sophomore production from Marvel Studios -- the Universal-distributed action pic "The Incredible Hulk" -- debuted last weekend with $55.4 million.

    Sony's "Spider-Man 3," which grossed $336.5 million domestically to top 2007 boxoffice rankings, was the first film to cross the $300 million threshold, managing the feat in just 23 days after its May 4 bow. Though "Iron Man" required 51 days to reach a similar mark, its achievement was much less anticipated before the Robert Downey Jr. starrer's unspooling on May 1.

    Last May kick-started two other $300 million grossers: the Paramount-distributed "Shrek the Third" from DreamWorks Animation ($322.7 million) and Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" ($309.4 million).

    Among summer 2008's other big openers, Par's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" is another clear $300 million candidate, with $279.5 million through Tuesday. "Skull" has also grossed $359 million internationally, with the Steven Spielberg pic still to open in the lucrative Japan market this weekend.

    "Iron Man" has grossed $250 million internationally for a worldwide haul of more than $550 million. The franchise-launching action pic is set for a September bow in Japan.

    Marvel's Income Jumps More Than 50 Percent In Q2 2008

    VFXWorld
    Tuesday August 5, 2008

    Marvel Ent. reported operating results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2008.

    For Q2 2008, Marvel reported net sales of $156.9 million and net income of $46.7 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared to net sales of $101.5 million and net income of $29.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in Q2 2007.

    The year-over-year improvement reflects a strong performance in the licensing segment and initial contributions from the film production segment of $28.9 million in net sales and $7.7 million in gross profit attributable to a portion of the foreign presales for the IRON MAN and THE INCREDIBLE HULK feature films.

    Marvel's Chairman, Morton Handel, said, "Revenue from Marvel's film production segment commenced in the second quarter with the release of IRON MAN and THE INCREDIBLE HULK. We're very pleased with the success of these films, which have generated $817 million in global box office receipts -- $571 million from IRON MAN and $246 million from THE INCREDIBLE HULK -- with IRON MAN still to open in Japan.

    Because of the timing of our distributors' revenue reporting, our Q2 results did not reflect any revenue from the films' box office performance. We did, however, record initial revenues in Q2 from the foreign pre-sales of both movies. In addition, the high level of media and consumer interest in these two films helped to drive strong results in our domestic and international licensing divisions in the period."

    "With growing international sales to complement our already strong domestic licensing program and a focus on generating higher value from online and interactive activities, we believe Marvel is well positioned as we develop our pipeline of future self-produced feature films," Handel added.

    Iron Man Blu-ray packs a Stark-worthy arsenal of bonus features

    The Blu-ray version of Iron Man has been available for preorder on Amazon for quite a while now, but no one knew exactly what they were buying (other than, you know, the movie itself). Now we know that the Ultimate Edition will be released September 30 and contain two discs packed with all sorts of good stuff, including the ability to check out Iron Man's full suit in crazy-explicit detail:

    On the DVD and BD "Ultimate" versions of the film:

    The sets offer the ultimate IRON MAN experience with extensive explorations of the origins of the character in a six-part featurette, as well as a seven-part in-depth look at the making of the film, a revealing documentary on the stellar visual effects, Robert Downey Jr.’s original screen test, deleted and extended scenes, a photo gallery of concept art and behind-the-scenes images on the set and more.
    The Blu-ray edition will feature these extra goodies:

    One of the most anticipated releases of the year, the IRON MAN Blu-ray presentation offers even more exclusive content for an incredible entertainment experience including a “Hall of Armor” that allows fans to enter the Stark database to zoom in on any of the three Iron Man suits — or Iron Monger. They can then activate the digital 3-D schematics to check out every weapon and the full high-definition renders let users fly around each suit to explore each of the armors in comprehensive detail.

    The “Iron Man IQ” is a user-friendly web application that lets users create and share new multiple choice quizzes based on clips from the film. Fans can also download other users’ challenges via BD-Live.

    Marvel posts mixed guidance for Q3

    'Iron Man' profits pour in earlier than expected

    By Paul Bond
    The Hollywood Reporter
    Nov 4, 2008, 06:52 PM ET

    Marvel was a victim of its own success Tuesday, reporting that money from "Iron Man" has poured into its coffers earlier than expected.

    That dynamic translated to Marvel crushing estimates for its third-quarter financial performance though it also means the company will underperform expectations next year.

    Investors took most of the trading session to decide whether the good news outweighed the bad. In the end, Marvel stock nearly sat out a powerful Election Day rally. Its shares finished up 1.9%.

    Profit at Marvel rose 39% to $50.6 million on revenue that surged 48% to $182.5 million. About $60 million of those sales can be attributed to "Iron Man" revenue that Marvel originally predicted wouldn't be recognized until next year.

    With no new Marvel-produced releases set for next year and a bunch of "Iron Man" money already accounted for, Marvel was forced to significantly rein in its 2009 forecast while beefing up its full-year 2008 forecast.

    Marvel now sees revenue of up to $460 million next year, while analysts were looking for $610 million. For this year, revenue could go as high as $670 million, while it previously predicted about $480 million.

    Marvel's next big theatrical events are "Iron Man 2" and "Thor" in 2010, and the company also expects that by the end of that year that its "Spider-Man" Broadway musical will have premiered.

    "We are not funding the show but we are co-producing it and have a meaningful first dollar gross participation," Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel said.
