Saturday Morning Update (7:30 a.m. PT): Deadline Hollywood is projecting a $130 million opening weekend for Iron Man 2. Check back soon for BoxOffice.com's official estimate.
Friday Morning Update: While Iron Man 2 didn't even come close to matching the $26.23 record-setting midnight haul of The Twilight Saga: New Moon or the $18.4 million haul of The Dark Knight, its $7.5 million take is still very impressive. IM2 doesn't have the same kind of rabid fan base as those films, but its weekend haul has a good shot at landing somewhere in the middle of New Moon's $142 million and Dark Knight's $158 million.
