Iron Man 2 may have saw some new competition from Universal Pictures' Robin Hood, but that wasn't enough to stop the film from remaining on top.

Box Office Bout: Iron Man 2 vs Robin Hood

Iron Man 2 fell 59% in its sophomore frame to take in another $53 million at the domestic box office, bringing the film's wordwide take to $450.4 million. While Robin Hood might have came in around studio expectations with $37.1 million domestically -- Universal knew Iron Man would be an issue -- the film still saw a healthy opening overseas with $74 million; a worldwide opening of $111.1 million.

Nikki Rocco, prexy of domestic distribution for U, admitted that given the presence of Iron Man 2 in the market, the studio remained realistic about "Robin Hood's" domestic projections.

"The intent was always that this was going to be a global film," Rocco said. "Because of the way the world is today, you have to look at a film like this as a global effort. And so domestically, it's where we thought it would be," she added.

Robin Hood cost $155 million to make, so it should take less than another week for Universal to get all that back.
