The first Iron Man opened to 31m yuan in its first five days, a number the sequel almost doubled after just 3 days. The figure is also on par with what Ip Man 2, the other highly expected sequel, started out last week (94m in 6 days with May Day holiday help). However, Iron Man 2 is not enjoying as good a word-of-mouth, and it has to deal with How to Train Your Dragon this upcoming weekend. The battle of the two IM2 will be fun to follow, but at this juncture, it appears Ip Man 2 has the upper hand, as the film is a lock to cross 200m yuan and could finish around 230m.
