RDJ and the kids
Have you heard? Iron Man 3 made more money overseas than The Avengers. It’s already earned $200 million in advance of the domestic opening. Let’s break down RDJ’s recent box office record:
Iron Man 3 -- $200 million to date, and it hasn’t even been released in North America
The Avengers -- $1.5 billion, this is not a typo
Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows -- $545 million
Due Date -- $211 million
Iron Man 2 -- $624 milliion
Sherlock Holmes -- $524 million
RDJ is spending the week in New York. Last night he surprised teen fans at a special screening of Iron Man 3 who were being rewarded for their part in volunteer efforts after Hurricane Sandy. Video is below and click here to see some of the photos. Look at the excitement on their faces. It’s adorable. Also, he wore a white tuxedo jacket.
New York is RDJ’s hometown. He made a point of putting this week in New York on his schedule -- to “sell soap”, as he calls it. But as you can see, especially in his interview with Good Morning America, if it’s a pain in the ass, to “SELL”, as so many of them so often complain about, he certainly goes about the business without any apparent resentment. Hugh Jackman is like this too.
PS. RDJ + Jon Stewart tonight!
