Remember all that speculation about no one going to see Iron Man because of the release of GTA IV? False!
A lot of people bought GTA IV and a lot of people went and saw Iron Man this weekend. Iron Man brought in an estimated $100 million over the weekend.
Yes, Grand Theft Auto IV made more money, but Iron Man is now the biggest opening movie of 2008 and likely wasn't hurt by the game's release.
If they had been released on the same day, sure, but GTA IV came out on Tuesday. By the weekend, gamers need a break from the life of Niko Bellic, especially when Roman keeps calling to play pool. I'm a little busy, Roman!
So how about it? Did you buy GTA IV and see Iron Man?
