Real Steel managed to “knock out” the competition at the box office this weekend, making $27.3 million. If you consider it a boxing movie, than it had the highest opening ever for one, topping Rocky IV and it had the second highest sports drama opening, getting beat by The Blind Side’s opening. Second place went to the other new release, The Ides of March. It had an opening weekend of $10.5 million, a bit ahead of similar George Clooney movie Michael Clayton’s opening and a little less than Ryan Gosling’s Drive’s opening weekend. Dolphin Tale and Moneyball, last week’s number one and two, moved down to third and fourth and 50/50 remained in fifth place. The only major movement was The Lion King 3D, which dropped from third last week to seventh, probably because of it’s new release on Blu Ray. Three more movies opening this weekend including the prequel to The Thing and the remake of Footloose.
