    In this film publicity image released by Marvel Entertainment, the character Iron Man is shown in a scene from "Iron Man 2."

    "Iron Man 2," the superhero sequel starring Robert Downey Jr., blasted to the top of the box office on its opening weekend, earning $133.6 million domestically.

    That's according to studio estimates released Sunday.

    The first blockbuster of the summer soared past the franchise's $98.6 million debut in 2008 and marked the fifth-biggest opening weekend in history.

    "Iron Man 2" has taken in $194 million overseas since it debuted in many international markets last week.
