Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Iron Man 2," the superhero sequel starring Robert Downey Jr., is putting up big numbers after its opening weekend.

It surged to the top of the box office competition, earning $133.6 million domestically.

That's according to studio estimates.

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

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