December 18, 2010 Leave a comment
Summer blockbusters “Iron Man” and “The Dark Knight” both showed superhero-like powers when it came to pulling in box-office receipts. “The Dark Knight” delivered a thumping $158.4 million last weekend — an industry record. “Iron Man’s” $98.6 million initial weekend take surpassed all expectations. Talented directors, great lead talent and sensational reviews from critics were naturally a major part of both films’ successes. But the marketing and media behind these two Hollywood franchises was a critical ingredient to maximizing both films’ potential.
