It’s unfortunate it wasn’t RDJ’s Iron Man that trumped The Dark Knight this weekend, but rather Downey Jr. in blackface in Paramount’s Tropic Thunder.  The R-rated flick brought in an estimated $26 million over the weekend, while Christian Bale’s Dark Knight bringing in $16.8 million.  Coming in third was George Lucas’ Clone Wars animated flick with $15.5 million.

Don’t feel too bad about the Dark Knight, the cumulated box office is now over $470 million.
