Iron Man 3 rockets to top of movie charts

IRON MAN 3 saw one of the US’s biggest ever launches last weekend, raking in $175.3m (£112.7m) in US and Canadian box offices alone. This made it the second-biggest stateside film launch in history, only behind last year’s Avengers. Since its international launch on 25 April, the film has taken in $680m for its owners, Walt Disney Studios.
