'Iron Man' rockets to top spot with $38m Opening Day

Big buzz, good reviews, and a soft lineup of competitors this weekend all led to a $38 million opening day total for Paramount's $180 million budgeted superhero pic Iron Man. The film earned $5.5 million in Thursday night sneak previews, and another $32.5 million on Friday. The Robert Downey Jr. starrer appears on pace for a $100+ million opening weekend. The film opened in an ultrawide 4,105 theaters.
