Iron Man 2 rocketed to the top of the May 14 weekend box office, the second week in a row, with a respectable $53 million in domestic ticket sales, pushing Robin Hood to second place in its debut.

Robin Hood took in an estimated $37.1 million in its opening, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, Iron Man 2 saw its domestic take drop 59 percent from its week-earlier opening, pretty good considering it dominated the weekend in its premiere. The sequel's domestic total rose to $212.2 million, exceeding the $177.8 million second-weekend total for 2008's original Iron Man.
