(Newser) Iron Man 3 had a massive opening weekend on American soil as expected, but its $175.3 million debut was only good enough for No. 2 of all time, falling well short of The Avengers' $207.4 million. It's still nothing to sneeze at, as Robert Downey Jr. and Co. have now taken in $680.1 million globally, notes the Hollywood Reporter, and managed to dethrone the final Harry Potter installment. Other movies did in fact exist this weekend, though quietly: Pain & Gain made $7.6 million to claim the No. 2 spot; 42 was third with $6.2 million; and Oblivion was fourth with $5.8 million.
