A side effect of that decision was an inevitable leak, allowing U.S. consumers the opportunity to see the film online for free (albeit an inferior version).The film <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i51f95541d351a9e9432aedc6da234e66?imw=Y">garnered</a> a nice $133.6 million at the boxoffice, topping the original&#39;s $98.6 million take and making it the fifth highest opening of all-time. Still, pre-release audience surveys had indicated that &quot;Iron Man 2&quot; could break the record $158.4 million opening weekend record of &quot;The Dark Knight&quot; in 2008. That didn&#39;t happen, nor did the film beat the $143 million opening of the last super-hyped franchise sequel, &quot;The Twilight Saga: New Moon,&quot; in November.There&#39;s no way of knowing exactly how the film would have performed had it opened day-and-date worldwide. The leak could be a factor, but so too could the weather. We <a href="/2009/05/how-much-did-piracy-hurt-wolverine-boxoffice.html">tried to break down the numbers</a> for last year&#39;s pirated &quot;X-Men: Wolverine&quot; (that was a higher-quality work print but it was missing final special effects) and couldn&#39;t reach any strong conclusions.
