"Iron Man 3" has landed.
The film, starring Robert Downey Jr. as the Marvel superhero, earned $15.6 million from late night showings on Thursday night, and is aiming for a huge domestic opening, following an already-massive worldwide take.

However, the film's big opening night numbers couldn't measure up to "The Avengers," which scored $18.7 million in midnights showings last year. Record-wise, "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2" is still the king. That film earned a massive $43.5 million in 2011.
As predicted, "Iron Man 3" is likely to earn north of $150 million domestically by the end of the weekend.

"Iron Man 3" is the first of the series not directed by Jon Favreau (who stayed on as producer and co-star). Instead, Downey's "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" director Shane Black called the shots.
The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce.
