Box office: 'Iron Man 2' beats 'Robin Hood' for Friday night win

robin-hood-iron-man-2.jpg"Iron Man 2" battled its way to the top spot on its second Friday in release, beating out Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood" reboot.

Robert Downey Jr.'s second installment of "Iron Man" grossed an estimated $15 million on Friday. That's about a 70% drop from its opening night, but enough to beat out Russell Crowe's latest period action flick. "Robin Hood" has received lukewarm reviews from critics, but it still earned a respectable $13 million, according to estimates. "Iron Man 2" will likely win the weekend.

"Letters to Juliet," starring Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgraves, earned an estimated $5 million on Friday. Queen Latifah's new film, "Just Wright," grossed less than $3 million.

Warner Bros.' horror remake "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is still scaring some folks in its second week in theaters, landing in fifth place with an estimated $1.5 million.
