The Robert Downey Jr. movie grossed $14.4 million at 637 screens for a $22,731 per-screen average. Iron Man 3 currently has a $17.9 million cume in Australia. Other releases struggled to hold on, as no other new releases were able to break into the top ten. The Croods fared best, adding $1.5 million to its $23.9 million cume. Olympus Has Fallen and Oblivion had bigger drops, however, as both films grossed around the $1 million mark early into their release. Olympus fell 48% in its second weekend, bringing in $1 million to reach $3.6 million in Australia. Oblivion wasn't able to reach the $1 million weekend benchmark for the first time. The Tom Cruise film has grossed $8.1 million after three weeks in release.
